Nice info sir! As far as I know, the longest platform is Khadagpur.

Hi @chetanpadliya You are correct for 20th century,But in 21 century longest railway platforms are:
Gorakhpur railway station, Uttar Pradesh, India:1,366.33 m (4,483 ft) (longest in the world)
Kollam Junction, Kerala, India:1,180.5 m (3,873 ft)
Kharagpur, West Bengal, India: 1,072.5 m (3,519 ft)
State Street subway, Chicago, Illinois, US: 1,067 m (3,501 ft) (longest in North America)

The more you read your posts, the more you wonder how well the railway traffic in India is organized. How everything is thought out to the smallest detail, so as not to create passengers inconvenience when traveling by rail. Great post, I liked it.
