Meanwhile, the much awaited Habibgunj-Indore Superfast AC Double Decker will take some more time to get the necessary security clearance before opening for public.

The Bina-Bhopal MEMU train is one of the eight trains that were announced in the railway budget this year. The train will arrive here from Baroda before it is flagged green by Sushma Swaraj in a function that will be chaired by CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

DRM Rajiv Choudhary inspected the platform no; 6 at the Bhopal station on Monday to take stock of the preparations for inaugural function.

Sources informed that the Railway Safety Commissioner might take few more days before giving final clearance to the train. The railway is taking additional precautions in the trial after the shed of railway platform at Indore station was hit by the train.
