In a significant development, Jayesh Champawat, a prominent member of the Ajmer Divisional Rail User Advisory Committee, recently held discussions with Union Railway Minister Ashiwini Vaishnav to present a compelling case for the addition of new train services originating from Udaipur. The meeting between Jayesh Champawat and Union Railway Minister Ashiwini Vaishnav marks a significant step towards fulfilling the aspirations of the residents of Udaipur and neighboring areas for improved rail connectivity. As these proposals move through the decision-making process, they hold the promise of creating a positive impact on both passenger travel and regional economic growth.
During the meeting, Champawat conveyed the pressing demand from the residents of Udaipur and the surrounding areas for enhanced rail connectivity. He emphasized the need to elevate the existing Udaipur-Haridwar train service, which currently operates three days a week, to a daily frequency.
Furthermore, he proposed the introduction of a new train route that would connect Udaipur to Mumbai via key cities like Ahmedabad, Vadodara, and Surat. The proposed Udaipur-Mumbai train service would not only cater to the needs of travelers but also play a vital role in boosting commercial exchanges among these urban centers.
Another notable request made by Champwat was to establish a direct train connection from Ajmer to Sealdah, originating from Udaipur. This connection, he explained, would bridge a crucial gap in the current rail network and provide passengers with a convenient and efficient travel option.
