Vande Bharat Express on Jalna-Mumbai Route: Proposed Timetable and Halts

The proposed timetable for the Vande Bharat Express on the Jalna-Mumbai route reveals four scheduled halts, as announced by the South Central Railway (SCR). The express train, with a yet-to-be-announced launch date, is set to stop at Aurangabad, Manmad, Nashik, and Thane railway stations.

Departing from Jalna at 5:05 am, the train is scheduled to reach Aurangabad at 5:53 am, Nashik at 8:38 am, Thane at 11:10 am, and finally, Mumbai at 11:55 am, with a 2-minute halt at each station. On the return journey, the Vande Bharat Express will depart from Mumbai at 1:10 pm, stopping at Thane (1:40 pm), Nashik (4:28 pm), Aurangabad (7:08 pm), and concluding at Jalna by 8:30 pm.

The superfast train is anticipated to take six hours to cover the distance from Aurangabad to Mumbai, accounting for track conditions and congestion affecting its relatively slower speed. Rajesh Shinde, the Public Relations Officer of the Nanded division of SCR, confirmed that the Vande Bharat Express on the Jalna-Mumbai route will operate on weekdays, excluding Fridays.

Shinde also stated that the Railway Board has approved the Vande Bharat Express for Marathwada, expecting the train to be inaugurated before the year-end. Regarding concerns raised by railway activist Anant Borkar, who suggested evening departure times for the benefit of tourists, SCR authorities mentioned that this feedback on the train’s timing would be communicated to higher authorities for consideration.
