history repeats itself every year.
Indore has got nothing substantial except a duranto to mumbai.
• Direct benefit
o DurantoAC between Indore and Mumbai
o Ajmer-Indore Link Express (Daily)
o -ticket vans to be extended to Government Medical College Hospitals, Courts, Universities, IT hubs, IITs and IIMs (indore has last all five)
• Trains though not through Indore but will pass through nearby places so improving connectivity to Indore also
o Kolkata-Ajmer Express via Singrauli-Katni-Bhopal-Nagda-Ratlam (Weekly)
o Hyderabad-Ajmer Express (Bi-weekly)
o Habibganj-Jabalpur Intercity Express (Daily)
o Jaipur-Pune Express (Weekly) (will it go through MP??)
o Ahmedabad-Agra Express (Tri-weekly)
o Puri-Valsad Express (Weekly) via Katni-Bhopal-Vadodara ( so now instead of going to Bina, one can get train for Puri at Bhopal itself but it is only weekly)
One more thing. three tirth yatra trains will pass through either Indore or bhopal. so good news for highy religious minded people of region
Bhopal-Dwaraka-Somnath-Udaipur-Ajmer-Jodhpur- Jaipur-Mathura-Vrindavan-Amritsar-Jammu Tawi-Bhopal.
more interestingly Maharashtra governmnet has expresses its willingness to share cost for Manmad Indore line but MP government and so called development purush of Indore are blissfully silent on issue ,so is our MP of 20 years.
