Should IR think of introducing AC EMUs on popular business routes like Ahmedabad Mumbai?

I would say running EMUs for almost 500 kms will be bad idea not least because it does not have toilets on board plus after paying that sort of fare, no one would want to stand through the journey so that puts the capacity down to just around 80 odd per coach. So that makes it a 12 coach AC Express, just like the Double Decker but with reduced capacity. Although if given a proper timetable and speed it would not be too far fetched to start a regular EMU service between Mumbai and Vapi instead of a passenger. It would definitely save some time as EMUs have a lot better braking and pickup, plus with the new Bombardier EMUs now using regenerative braking it would bring down the electricity usage too.

I can't believe Geetanjali has got a vote. That train has probably the worst SL in whole of IR

On its maiden run itself, HumSafar gets a taste of NCR and ECR and the train which was running on time till KTE and reached 30 minutes late at STA in WCR gets late by over 5 hours in reaching PNBE. Wonder how will this fare on its regular runs.

Do you think MAS CSTM/CSMT connection must be made faster and moreover, there is only 2 dedicated slow M/E and a over crowded MS DR SF of 18 coacher is only there. as both are metropolitan cities, a connection of standard class trains are definitely required What class of trains are preferred by you which should complete distance in less than a day and standard should be nice?

The MAS-CSMT section along with SBC-CSMT section are probably two of the most under developed sections of IR. Despite all the three above mentioned cities being huge, combined there is only 1 super fast plying on these two routes. There has been a state of complete lack of attention and apathy from railways over the years and due to that the major traffic carrier between Bangalore to Mumbai has been road and recently air while Chennai Mumbai route is dominated by air traffic too. Railways, in spite of the knowledge of the facts is doing nothing. So much so that the this leg of golden quadrilateral hasn't even been fully converted to electric, let alone being doubled. So, in my opinion all this concerned talks and polls which we have here are completely useless, because even if IR does decide to address the issue in near future, it'll prove to be...
a useless and too little too late sort of move.
