Bharuch has two industrial estates of Ankleshwar and Nandesari nearby, and would attract business travellers. Plus a lot of traders travel from Bharuch to Mumbai regularly, who may prefer using the bullet train for quick travel.
Whats more surprising is the inclusion of Billimora and omission of Valsad

Thanks guys but I feel the population as per 2011 census doesn't encourage for a stoppage at Bharuch. No offences to anyone, would be happy if it's a viable stoppage.

Bharuch has a population of > 2.23 lakhs as per 2011 census, which is more than Anand (~ 2.01 lakhs) and Vapi (~1.63 lakhs). What's so discouraging about that? In contrast, Bilimora has a population of ~53000 and Boisar ~35000. [Source: click here

New Facilities/TechnologyBMRC/Bangalore Metro  -  
May 01 2015 (16:14)   Reach 3B of Metro rail flagged off

rdb*^   130973 news posts
Entry# 1450354   News Entry# 222872         Tags   Past Edits
After months of delays, the largest industrial area in the city, and perhaps even South India, gets a spot on the Metro Map.
The services on the Reach 3B extension of Namma Metro between Nagasandra (Close to Bangalore International Exhibition Centre) and Peenya Industrial Area Phase I was launched here on May 1. The new stations added are: Peenya Industry, Jalahalli Cross, Darasarahalli and Nagasandra.
The addition of four stations along the 3.4 km extension will now see commuters able to travel 10.5 kms between Mantri Square on Sampige Road station and Nagasandra
within 25 minutes.
After flagging off the services, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said the entire 42.5km metro network will be thrown open by March 2016. “Moreover, tender bidding for works on 72-km under Phase II will be finalised within a few days,” he said.
Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu said the Union was placing emphasis on developing metro networks in cities across the country. “The eligibility for approval has been lowered to a city of population more than 10 lakh, instead of 20 lakh,” he said.
The formal programme at Peenya depot of the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL) saw a couple of protests interrupting speeches. Many held placards and shouted slogans against the project for having failed to provide “basic facilities” of toilets and drinking water at the stations.
“May Day” on November 1
Perhaps it was the incessant evening drizzle and cool nights that confused Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. During the inauguration of Reach 3B of Namma Metro on Friday, the Chief Minister repeatedly referred to ‘May Day’ as being on November 1. “On November 1 today, we celebrate May Day, and we need to remember our pledge to labourers,” he said to suppressed laughter from the audience. Immediately there was another reference to November instead of May.
