History of the Samjhauta Express

Before the Thar Express was introduced, Samjhauta Express was the only train to Pakistan from India. The train carried passengers for the first time in the year 1976, on 22nd July after the Shimla Agreement was signed. It carried passengers from the city of Amritsar in India to Lahore in Pakistan. At that time the Samjhauta Express was a daily train. But, in the year 1994, it became a bi-weekly train. In the year 2000, Pakistani Railways and the Indian Railways signed an agreement, and the route of this train was revised. The termini of this train are Pakistan’s Lahore and India’s Delhi. The crossing of borders takes place between India’s Atari and Pakistan’s Wagah.

Now the train between Delhi to Atari is devoid of commercial stops. Many assume it to be the Samjhauta Express, but it is mainly the Delhi-Attari Express. The original Samjhauta Express runs from Attari to Lahore.
