🔶 Content providing proof from Rajya Sabha,Government of India about renaming North Bengal Express to Darjeeling Mail. It is also being called "new" Darjeeling Mail by the minister clearly refering to present day 12343 Darjeeling Mail aka "renamed" Sealdah-Sakrigali Ghat North Bengal Express WHICH HAS NO DIRECT LINK with the old Calcutta-Siliguri Darjeeling Mail .
🔶This is also accepted by senior railfans in some posts click here click here click here

That is why it is named Kanchanjunga. That time from NJP to GHY it was Metre Guage.

Since this mentions the renaming of North Bengal express to 'Darjeeling mail', I am guessing it is from the parliamentary debates in the early 60's, probably 1963.
347/348 was the Howrah-Farakka fast passenger. After the opening of the Farakka barrage, this became the Howrah-New Jalpaiguri passenger, which by the early 90's was running as Howrah-Malda town parcel passenger. The train subsequently vanished.
114/5 was the connecting train to this passenger being operated on the Khejuria ghat side at Farakka.
Kanchenjunga

came much later. It was introduced as a super-fast service between Howrah-NJP in 1983 (numbered 57/58).

As per your documents asNORTH BENGAL EXP is renamed as DARJEELING MAIL , so the inaugural day of that north bengal exp is the inaugural day of current DARJEELING MAIL.
As if rly change any trains name we can't change its actual inaugural day.
Telengana exp is one of the biggest example..
The name changed from AP exp to Telangana exp but

inaugural day not changed. There are so many such example.

Happy Birthday to 12343/44 Darjeeling Mail.It turns 54 today.After termination of original Darjeeling Mail via-Bangladesh,the service remained terminated from 1947.
**On 1st April,1964... Sealdah-Sakrigali Ghat NORTH BENGAL EXPRESS was diverted to New Jalpaiguri after completion of Farakka Barrage over Ganga & later,to respect the sentiments of people the train was RENAMED as (12343) Darjeeling Mail.**

Probably but I am not sure. We are waiting for the answer from the Atlas Monitor who created the station. He is the best person to give you the answer here.

It used a terminal type station. Neither station building is dismantled nor the track is abandoned. The building is used as storage facility, while the line is used for loading stone chips. BTW i am resident of that area.
