lachung siliguri is possible in aday, without any problem. Start a little early from Lachung say by 6:30, u will reach gangtok by 1 or 1:30 max. change vehicle, cause the vehicles of north sikkim do not go to siliguri. have lunch. start around 3:00 from gangtok, by 6:30 you will reach siliguri without any hassle. njp will take another half hour. so by 7 u r njp station, most of the sealdah bound trains are after 7. only hope that there is no gjm strike call, that may delay you beyond melli.

Theoretically possible, but not a nice idea.

In North Sikkim the terrain is harsh and remote and the travel is long and arduous. If something does go wrong, help can be miles away.

So If you are to catch a train from NJP, have a day in hand.
Two roads diverged in a wood and I I took the one less traveled by.
