The train was first introduced between Howrah and Vijayawada after cancellation of the service of the twin Hyderabad-Puri Express and passenger trains. It was then extended to Guntur. After the delinking of the through coaches from Krishna Express (slip coaches as they are now called in IR terminology), this train was extended to Hyderabad.But I am unable to recall the years when these changes took place.
