The proposed Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train will now have a longer route, with the Centre accepting the state government’s proposal to extend the high-speed corridor to Pune and Nashik.
The clearance is a huge victory for Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who had drawn flak from various groups for accepting a raw deal as most part of the corridor will run through Gujarat despite both states contributing equal money for it.
Sources said the approval is a part of the bargain that the CM struck with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in exchange for a piece
of land at Bandra Kurla Complex owned by MMRDA to build the bullet train terminus.
Until recently, the MMRDA was opposed to a proposal by the railways to set up the terminus at BKC. The agency said it wanted the 30-hectare plot at G block for an international financial services centre. The MMRDA also rejected an alternative plan to construct an underground terminus at the same site citing feasibility issues.
“The chief minister pleaded with the PM that Maharashtra should get something in return if it were to give concession to the Indian Railways. The CM then forwarded the proposal to extend the bullet train to Pune and Nashik which was accepted by the Centre,” a bureaucrat from the CM’s office told Mirror.
The stand-off between the railways and MMRDA was threatening to derail both the projects. “As the bullet train is one of the pet projects of Modi, there was pressure on the state government to find a solution to end the impasse at earliest,” the official said.
It was general perception that despite bearing 25 per cent of the cost, same as that of Gujarat, the 506-km corridor was to have only four stations in Maharashtra – Gujarat to have eight. “So the chief minister had to do something to change this perception,” said the official.
Acquiring land to extend the project to Pune and Nashik won’t be a problem as there is ample space available along Pune-Mumbai Expressway, said the source.
“Similarly, the state is currently in the process of implementing the Mumbai-Nagpur Expressway and some part of it traverses through Nashik district. While chalking out the alignment, we have reserved enough space for a high-speed rail corridor.”

The crowd travelling from Surat , Ahmedabad to Nashik, and Pune Nashik is huge, thus the laying of tracks between these cities will beneficial for people and Industries. The traffic on roads would decrease,as there is load on traffic in recent time.

Which is the oldest weekly train of IR, that still is running as weekly (extensions and change of route notwithstanding)?
Please mention the year of inaugural too.
Thank you all for the responses.

The answer is Sarvodaya Express 12473 from ADI - JAT (now SVDK). Introduced in 1979.
Source: IRFCA: click here
With no clear dates available for the introduction of many trains, even Himsagar 1980 was around that time, which Mr. Gaurav Dhaka got it right.

Today many trains reach NGP/Durg 5-10minutesearly as there is slack time at these stations.
But in late 70s Geetanjali express used to reach almost all destinations between Mumbai & Durg about 20-45 minutes before time at it never made unscheduled stops for many times I traveled during those golden years. Today it hardly reaches 5-10 minutes early and that too occasionally.
