This Train then (7001/7002) was started around mid 1993 as a bi weekly train between Dadar and Hyderabad and was soon made a daily train in 1994 by shifting it to the time and slot of the 2101/2102 Minar Express which used to run between Bombay VT and Secunderabad. Currently, it operates as a daily superfast train with train No 2701/2702.
