Duronto Express trains are a set of specialized rail services by Indian Railways like Rajdhani Express and Shatabdi Express trains. These are the non-stop point to point rail services introduced for the second time in the history of India. The Sampark Kranti trains being the first which were introduced during the railway budget by the then rail minister Mr. Nitesh Kumar during 2004-2005. However due to poor patronage, these trains which anyway had only technical halts were given commercial stops.
These services connect the metros and major state capitals of India. Introduced in the Indian Rail Budget 2009-10, these trains run non-stop from source and destinations with some technical and crew halts in the journey. The Duronto express trains are projected to be the fastest trains in India.
