Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar: Despite a very strong demand from passengers to change the timing of the Jalna-CST Mumbai Jan Shatabdi Express, the South Central Railway (SCR) has not made any change in the journey schedule of the train. The SCR announced a revised timetable for train operations from Sunday, with minor changes in the arrival and departure timing of three trains only. While the Jalna- CST Mumbai Jan Shatabdi Express used to leave from Aurangabad station at 6am before the Covid outbreak, it is leaving at 9.20am every day now.
