Kanpur Central is one of five "Central" railway stations in India. It is the busiest railway station in India in terms of frequency of trains. Around 230 trains passes through the station daily. It is a major intercity rail and commuter rail station in the city of Kanpur, and is situated on the Howrah - Delhi broad gauge route passing through Uttar Pradesh. It also holds the record for the largest interlocking route system in the world. It is the busiest station of the North Central Railways, recording traffic of more than 150,000 passengers. After determining the railway stations that need to be world-class, former Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee included Kanpur Central in her list. She included funding for this work in her "50 World-Class Railway Stations" budget. A phased revamping has begun.

Though the re-modelling of Kanpur Central Station began a long time ago, it is being done gradually in phases. At present, the re-modelling work is proceeding very slowly, but senior NCR officials are hopeful of keeping their promise of providing a new, improved look to Kanpur Central in the near future.
