The inaugural date here on IRI is incorrect, sir. BSP-BPL express was introduced sometime between May-August, 1976. By 1977, it was already running till NZM ( A link express between VSKP-R was introduced to connect to this train at Raipur and proceed to Delhi, in the 1977 budget). By 1985, it was already extended to Amritsar.

Well, for starters, you can check the 1977 All India Timetable that is available on IRFCA. Here is the SER portion (BSP-NGP) click here (NGP-ET) click here (BPL-NZM) click here . The 1977 TT has the train listed as 137/138 BSP-NZM Chattisgarh express.
A Snippet from the 'Times of India' publication in 1976, mentioning that the Chattisgarh express between Bilaspur and Bhopal was introduced in 1975-76. click here
1983 Timetable, still showing it as BSP-NZM click here and I've attached a report from
the then railway minister Sri Madhavrao Scindia about an accident to the chattisgarh express in 1985, which mentions it as 137/138 Amritsar-Bilaspur Chattisgarh express.
