Bandikui was preferred for the tri-junction by British Railway surveyors over Rajgarh, Alwar, due to better alignment. The Bandikui railway station was established in 1874. Most trains traveling between Delhi and Jaipur stop at Bandikui. At the time of colonialism, some 1000 British families lived in Bandikui. Some Raj era bungalows can still be found in Bandikui.

The city attracted migration from nearby villages and its population grew to more than 125,000. Many residents work in Delhi and keep their families in Bandikui.
