Udaipur Railway Station lies in the heart of the city, and serves the local population as well as tourists. It falls under the Ajmer division of the North Western Railway Zone and caters to approximately 16,465 passengers per day.

The station will be redeveloped on a Design-Build Finance Operate Transfer (DBFOT) model using principles of Transit Oriented Development (TOD).
The concession period shall be 60 years and the concessionaire shall have the obligation to redevelop and maintain the station for 60 years along with the right to collect revenue from station users and commercial development.
