Kanpur New Delhi Shatabdi Express is the second Shatabdi Train for Kanpur Central. The load of passengers in Lucknow Swarna Shatabdi Express was heavy from Kanpur Central. Due to the excessive passenger load on Lucknow Shatabdi from Kanpur Central and huge demand for a separate Shatabdi train from Kanpur Central, the Railway Ministry declared the new Shatabdi train from Central Station in 2009 Railway Budget. This train was flagged off by Union Railways minister Mamata Banerjee on 7 Feb 2010. It runs on all days of a week except Sunday.

In the starting days, it used to run non-stop between Kanpur and New Delhi. Later, Ghaziabad was also introduced as another stop between the two stations. Railways has introduced one more stop i.e. Etawah between Kanpur and New Delhi and recently from 9 July 2016 Railway has introduced one more stop i.e. Aligarh.

It is called Kanpur Reverse Shatabdi because it follows the reverse timetable of Lucknow Shatabdi; i.e. UP follows DOWN time table and vice versa.

Fares and coaches[edit]

These fares are lesser as compared to the Lucknow Swarn Shatabdi Express for the same pair of stations. Morning/evening snacks, tea and coffee are served.

Loco link[edit]
