Constructed by RMWO and inaugurated in 2003 for facilitating the patients, students and workers to avail the cheapest means for daily commuting. At the time of opening 11 Up and 11 Down trains used to stop at the station including two each between Karachi and Mirpur Khas. However since 2016 only one train each way runs between Hyderabad and Mirpur Khas with a stoppage at Rashidabad both ways.

The station had the distinction of having the only high level platform, other than Landhi, from Khokrapar to Karachi.
