The Yeshwantpur railway station is undergoing a rapid eco-friendly redevelopment. The first platform's initial phase is complete, with work on the metro side next. The project, costing ₹380 crore, should be finished by 2025. Delhi's Girdhari Lal Constructions Pvt Ltd started work in February last year.
The first platform's entrance is currently closed for essential upgrades. They're building a multi-level car park with space for 90 two-wheelers, 90 cars, and 40 autos. An elevated road for smoother passenger drop-off and pick-up is also in progress.

To improve traffic flow, separate vehicle arrival and departure systems are being established. The station will include a large air concourse, spanning 14,800 sq m, offering amenities similar to airport lounges, including food stalls, shops, and a business centre.
Currently, work is concentrated on the eastern side, with the western side (toward the Metro) next in line. Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the station's redevelopment in June 2022. A 3D model of the revamped station is available for public viewing on the premises.
