Daily Train Between Pune and Nashik

Railway minister Lalu Prasad's budget on Monday announced a daily train between Pune and Nashik.

"This is the first time that a new train (Pune-Nashik) is being introduced as a daily, a change from established norm where a new train is introduced with less frequency", said A.A. Phadke, additional divisional railway commissioner of Central Railway (Pune division). The frequency of two other longdistance trains from Pune has been increased. They include the Pune-Indore Express (from two to three days per week) and the Pune-Patna Express (from two to four days).

The introduction of the Pune-Nashik train was given the thumbs down by the Railway Pravasi Group president Harsha Shah. “Even regular commuters between the two cities will prefer to take the road as the rail journey will take much more time”, she said.

It takes around five hours by road between Pune and Nashik. If the train service takes the Kalyan and Igatpuri route it is going to take more than eight hours considering there will be two ghat sections (Khandala and Kasara). On the other hand, if the train takes the Manmad route, it will take at least 12 hours, Shah explained.

The Nashik train will not benefit traders on either side, said Deepak Bora, secretary of the Poona Merchant’s Chamber: “It may perhaps make travel more comfortable and cheaper between the two cities but not so for freight.”
