Some facts and corrections:
1) The distance between Hazrat Nizamuddin and Agra Cantonment railway stations is 187.6 kms and not 195 kms. Hence the average speed of this train is 112.56 kmph which is not an achievement.
2) Maybe this train is fastest as far as the maximum speed is concerned. But average speed of many a trains at certain sections is well above this train. some of these are as under:
12953 up Mumb ai Central Hazrat Nizamuddin August Kranti Rajdhani Express clocks an average speed of 114.4576 kmph between Nagda to Kota. The distance between these stations is 225.1 kms and this train covers it in 118 minutes. Moreover the maximum speed of this train is said to be in the range of 130-140 kmph only.
b)The average speed of train no. 12033 up Kanpur New Delhi Shatabdi Express is 114.5753 between Kanpur Central and Etawah Jn. It covers the distance of 139.4 km in 73 minutes. Even this is achieved at a maximum speed of 130 kmph.
3) The maximum average speed across Indian Railways - to the best of my knowledge- is achieved by train no 12009 up Mumbai Central- Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express between Anand and Nadiad Junctions. The average speed is 123.33 kmph as the train covers the 18.5 km distance between these stations in 9 minutes ! Even this train has maximum speed limit of 130 kmph which means it gives highest average speed to maximum speed ratio.

It is called 'Puri Gate' and t is the main gate only. The other 2 gates 'DVC Gate' and 'Prem Bazar gate' are not as big as puri gate. Puri Gate is towards the KGP town so it is the main gate.
