Luggage Storage Facility at New Delhi Railway Station

Cloak Room at New Delhi Railway Station

We arrived at New Delhi Railway Station via train. After a few hours, another train for the next journey, and in-between hours we wanted to visit Janpath behind LIC building, Connaught Place for shopping. Janpath is my favorite since childhood because of cheap shirts and t-shirts. But where to deposit luggage?

And then a thought why not deposit luggage at Cloak Room. Mostly Cloak Room is situated on platform No. 1. We have to walk a little to reach almost the end of platform no. 1 (towards Desh Bandhu Gupta bridge) to find the Cloak Room and a long queue. I saw travelers filling up a form. I too found it at the entrance of the Cloak Room. It is known as Cloak Room Requisition Slip. Details (ticket number the most important one) were filled up and in a queue. Very soon maybe within 10 minutes, I was inside the room. They checked the slip, luggage, locks, and mentioned details in their register. I walk inside to place the luggage on one of the shelves.

Note: They don’t take luggage without locks.

For the first 24 hours, they charge – Rs. 15 per package.

Second 24 hour Rs. 15 + 20 i.e., Rs. 35 per package.

And all added 24 hours – Rs. 35 + 20 i.e., Rs. 55 per package.

As we have to deposit luggage in less than 24 hours we paid Rs. 30 for two packages.

In short, what I want to say is: This is an excellent facility at the New Delhi Railway Station, and when I returned the luggage was safe. I was happy. It was time to catch another train. Thank you, Indian Railways.

Note: Cloak Room facility is also available at platform no. 16 (Ajmeri Gate side).
