The 12002 / 01 New Delhi Habibganj Shatabdi Express is a train operated by the Northern Railway which runs between New Delhi, the main railway station of India's capital territory, New Delhi, and Habibganj the second railway station of Bhopal City, the state capital of central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Next to Gatimaan Express, this is the second fastest train in India with the top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph) on the New Delhi-Agra stretch. The train commenced service in 1988 and was the first Shatabdi train to be introduced. The train runs at an average speed of 89 km/h (55 mph), including halts. There is a plan by the IR to cut short its travel time of 2 hours 06 minutes to 1 hour 35 minutes (95 minutes) in the New Delhi -Agra section at an average speed of 123 km/h (76 mph). This train has been recently extended to Habibganj in the railway budget of 2014-15.
The name "Shatabdi" means centenary in Sanskrit. The first Shatabdi Express train was introduced in 1988 to commemorate the birth centenary of Jawahar Lal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India. Madhavrao Scindia was the Indian Railway Minister at that point of time and the Shatabdi Express was his brainchild. The first Shatabdi Express was flagged off between New Delhi and Jhansi, which was later extended to Bhopal being extended to Habibganj. It was planned to run this train between Gwalior(GWL) and New Delhi(NDLS), but Indian Railway wanted a good response for this train so they made it run between Jhansi and New Delhi.
