It is meant for Raipur but had to be extended to Bilaspur because of lack of terminal facilities (washing, cleaning, maintenance etc) at Raipur

Not that it makes a difference in this case, but the population of Bilaspur is 26 lakhs while the state capital Raipur is 11 lakhs (source wiki)

Raipur id the Capital of Chattisgarh and hence this Raj is more Raipur.

Bilaspur Rajdhani was introduced as such between NDLS and Bilaspur to begin with. Due to lack of patronage it was extended to Howrah for a brief period, say a year or so, about 4/5 yrs ago. But that made no difference to the fortunes of the train as there were few takers on the HWH-Bilaspur-NDLS stretch availing this train. Hence the status quo was restored thereafter and the train now runs only between Bilaspur and NDLS .

So even if New Delhi - Pune Rajdhani is started that should be ok. That will anyways halt in one of the stations of Maharashtra capital (Vasai Rd, Kalyan). Same logic as Bilaspur Rajdhani.
