?Location of DLI (Delhi)and NDSL (New Delhi)?

The problem: the train #5274 starts at Delhi (DLI) at 17:15. Is Delhi (DLI) same as New Delhi (NDSL). I found the New Delhi station on the google maps but do not see the Delhi station.

Any tips for me???

DLI is the Old Delhi station, in a different area to New Delhi station. Give yourself plenty of time to get there as it is very congested in that area unless it's very early morning before shops etc. open.

The station is near the Kashmere Gate area in Old Delhi. There is also a Metro station near the railway station (walking distance) if your bags are not too large and bulky you could avail yourself of that.
Every cloud has a silver lining!

Yes, we made that mistake earlier this year and had to rush over to the other station at departure time. Luckily our train was late!

NDLS is New Delhi and not Hazrat Nizamuddin. Mayur Vihar has a Metro connection, so does New Delhi but Hazrat Nizamuddin doesn't. DLI is Delhi Junction aka Old Delhi. There is a Metro station at Chandni Chowk which is wlking distance from DLI.

If you don't have a lot of luggage, I would suggest you take a taxi/autorickshaw to Noida Sector 15 Metro - then go to Chandni Chowk - you will need to change lines at Rajiv Chowk. DLI (Old Delhi station) is adjacent to Chandni Chowk Metro station. If it were me I would be leaving at least two hours prior to train departure time to take into account any inevitable hold ups. However by Metro it will be faster than by taxi.

Traffic around the 7 p.m. onwards is very heavy in Delhi especially on approaches to the station. So if you take a taxi from Vasundhara Enclave - I suggest you ask the local people how much time to allow. I would certainly be erring on the 'too much' time than not enough. I can't help you re prices but the cheapest of the lot is via the Metro.

I don't know anything re Nizamuddin station.

You have to take Sarai Kale Khan side exit from Nizammudin to go to Vasundhra.
Auto should charge less than Rs. 100.

Best Way is to take Pre Paid Taxi or a Radio Taxi. It'll take around one hour in normal traffic, charges around Rs. 350/-

Consider too that in gridlocked peak traffic times it will take longer - this would be mid-morning rush, and around 5.30 p.m. onwards for a couple of hours.
