Indian railways has chosen to replace the Delhi-Allahabad Duronto Express with the Humsafar Express. The Humsafar express that will replace the Duronto will run four days a week rather than the triweekly run of the superfast train. This will take effect from September 13 onwards. The 12275 Allahabad-New Delhi Humsafar Express train will keep running on each Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, while the return train will keep running on each Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday. The timetable of the new Humsafar express train will remain the same as the 12275/12276 New Delhi-Allahabad Duronto Express train. A senior official was quoted as saying, “The Humsafar Express, which currently runs four days a week between Allahabad and Delhi and three days a week from Delhi to Allahabad, has now been extended to cover all seven days. This will help in standardisation of rakes and also ensure full occupancy as well”.
The Delhi-Allahabad Duronto Express was among the first of 12 such "non-stop" trains presented by the former Railway Minister Banerjee in the 2009-2010 railway budget, which have stayed one of the fastest trains in the nation till date. Throughout the years, the Duronto trains have been replaced because of low inhabitants. These incorporate the transformation of Hazrat Nizamuddin-Ajmer Sharif Duronto into a Jan Shatabdi. The Coimbatore-Thiruvananthapuram has been changed over into a standard train. Others incorporate the Chandigarh-Amritsar Duronto Express (changed over into superfast express), Howrah-Puri Duronto Express (changed over into Shatabdi Express), Ajmer-Nizamuddin Duronto Express (changed over into Jan Shatabdi Express), Chennai-Thiruvananthapuram Duronto Express (changed over into Super AC Express).
