On February 21, after completing the necessary processes, the Railway Board issued an order in this regard. Accordingly, the 234-kilometre route from Daud to Manmad division was asked to be omitted from the Solapur division and incorporated in the Pune division beginning April 1, 2024.

As per the information given by railways, currently 2 DEMU trains run between Ahmednagar-New Ashti. This area was previously under the Solapur division; however, the 65 km section is now included in the Pune section.

Soon, the Beed-Parli section will be included in the Pune division. The Pune division, the smallest in terms of territory in the Central Railway, would now be considered a larger section.

Previously, the Pune segment was 531 km long, but with the addition of the Daund-Manmad stretch, its perimeter has increased to 830 km. The Solapur division’s area has decreased from 981 km to 757 km.

“The Pune division will now operate more trains and 29 additional railway stations. The Daund-Manmad stretch also contains some significant stations and cargo facilities. With the new stations, Pune divisions’ income will rise in the future,” Ramdas Bhise, senior divisional operations manager, Pune Railway Division, said.
