Weekday or weekend? Subject to reasonable traffic, I estimate 1-1.5 hours' worth ride from the station to airport. Should not be a problem, as long as your train isn't late. Not sure about PP taxis, someone else on this forum might be able to help you.

i don't think there is a pre-paid taxi stand at the station but you can negotiate a rate with the taxi driver before getting into the car....

if you are getting in on a weekday then i would keep about 1.5 - 2 hours to get to the airport from nizamuddin....if its a weekend then 45min - an hour would be sufficient....

you need to be at the airport latest by 8:45pm so i think you have enough time to make it....
