Andhra Pradesh Sampark Kranti Express is a South Central Railway train running from New Delhi to Tirupati. It is part of the Sampark Kranti Express series of trains, which link the Indian National Capital, New Delhi with the rest of the State Capitals, with only a limited number of stops on each service.

Service[edit]

The Andhra Pradesh Sampark Kranti Express commenced operations between Secunderabad (near Hyderabad, the State capital of Telangana) and Hazrat Nizamuddin near New Delhi. On 6 July 2005, Shri Anjan Kumar Yadav, MP, and Hyderabad mayor, Teegala Krishna Reddy, flagged off the train from Secunderabad station when the service was extended to Tirupati via Kurnool, Dhone and Kadapa.

The Andhra Pradesh Sampark Kranti Express operates as a three times a week train service between Secunderabad, Hazrat Nizamuddin and Tirupati.

Before the Andhra Pradesh Sampark Kranti Express was introduced, the (12625/12626) Kerala Express between New Delhi and Trivandrum was the only daily train connecting the Tirupati and New Delhi.
