Ajmeri gate to platform no 1

I will have to board amritsar shatabdi from platform no. 1

I will be coming to new delhi railway station via metro from airport.

Can some one advice how hard it will be to move from metro station to platform no 1 with 6 luggage bags and 3 kids.

May be taxi can take mestraight on phargang side but Iam iinterested in using metro.

If it is too much hassle to cross new delhi railway station from ajmeri gate to platform no 1 please tell me what are options ?

Thanks

You will find porter easily at Ajmeri gate who will take you plate form No.1 / any other plate form from where Amritsar Shatabadi goes.

Porter has current update about train plate form. Please note at New Delhi station , there are many touts who will try to tell you many stories. Do not believe otherwise , you will miss your train.

If you are arriving by metro then its better to have a porter.You will find them in front of metro exit.But if possible talk to them about rate before giving him the baggage's. There would be many touts who try to give to false information like train cancelled but dont even need to hear them.At baggage X-Ray point,i had heard that they even show them self as government office and try to take you away to some office but dont hear them.

The easiest way will be to get a porter ( the guy with red clothes on ) to take your luggage, give him about 50 - 100 ( fix the price before you leave ), This will be the best as these guys know and have all the information regarding the trains and platforms
