Description:
Sampark Kranti Express trains are a series of trains operated by the Indian Railways. These trains provide quick connectivity from a particular state to the national capital, New Delhi. Announced in the Interim Budget (Railways) of 2004-2005 by the then Minister of Railways, Shri Nitish Kumar, the special features of these trains are:
  • Non-stop run beyond the state,
  • Dedicated staff throughout the run,
  • Public address system, and
  • 15% lower tariff than the Rajdhani Express to the areas served.


The Sampark Kranti Express was modelled on the Delhi-Patna Sampoorna Kranti Express, which was a success.

The non stop runs beyond the state served did not last for too long, as due to poor patronage it was decided to give commercial stops to Sampark Kranti trains outside their respective states. Also, the Kerala Sampark Kranti Exp. was extended beyond New Delhi to Chandigarh.

List of services

A total of 18 trains were announced in the Interim Budget.

Trivia
