You are right Jai. As per NTES the train will stop at the station at 0042 & depart at 0044. Sorry for my mistake which was based on the IRI schedule where the stop has not been updated.

Mar 30 2017 (06:26)   Bullet train on track, work to start in 2017

Indian Railways is better than aeroplane^~   6 news posts
Entry# 2215622   News Entry# 298060         Tags   Past Edits
Work on the ambitious Rs1 lakh crore Ahmedabad-Mumbai Bullet train project, the country's first high-speed rail corridor, seems to be picking up speed. The groundbreaking ceremony of the project, which involves construction of a 505-km line using Japan's Shinkansen technology, and was first proposed way back in 2004, is expected in the current year itself.
A recent report in Nikkei Asian Review said that the Indian government has brought forward the groundbreaking ceremony to within 2017. The report said that trains could be running between the two cities at a speed of 320 km per hour by 2023.
The
...
more...
Nikkei report said that detailed design study for the high-speed project has formally begun. On completion, the Bullet train will reduce the travel time between Ahmedabad and Mumbai from the current eight hours to just over two hours.
A senior Gujarat government official confirmed that there is a lot of movement related to the Bullet train project of late.
"The project's construction work is expected to start in 2018 and is estimated to be completed in five years," he said.
The timeline for starting work and making the Bullet train operational may not be coincidental, as the next Lok Sabha elections will take place in 2019 and the one after that in 2024.
Chief secretary JN Singh said that the Gujarat government holds 25% equity in the ambitious project, but primary execution of the project is being done by the railways.
The cost of the Bullet train project was originally estimated at close to Rs98,000 crore, of which the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) would fund 81% or nearly Rs80,000 crore. The remaining funds would be contributed by Indian Railways, and the governments of Gujarat and Maharashtra.
Minister of state for railways Rajen Gohain said in the Parliament recently that the cost of the corridor is expected to go up by about Rs10,000 crore due to the decision to construct it as a fully elevated project. The decision is aimed at enhancing safety and reducing land requirement for the project.
The terminal in Ahmedabad is planned to come up at the existing Sabarmati railway station, while in Mumbai, the plan is to build it under the Bandra Kurla Complex.
An engineering marvel
The Bullet train project, which is expected to revolutionise country's transportation infrastructure, will be an engineering marvel. Even as the government is mulling the entire project to be an elevated one, around 7 km stretch of the line between Virar in Mumbai and Thane will pass under the sea. This will be the country's first undersea tunnel.
As per feasibility studies, the line will have 12 stations between Ahmedabad and Mumbai. The trains will make halts at Surat and Vadodara. The travel time between the two cities will come down to two hours and seven minutes, which is almost one-fourth of the current travel time.
The planned fare for the route will be around Rs3,300, one-and-a-half times the price of a AC class I ticket currently. It is expected to carry about 35,800 passengers a day initially.
The trains will run on the same 1,435 mm track gauge as Japan's Shinkansen bullet trains

Because standard gauge has had a history of failure in IR for heavy rail. All heavy Standard Gauge Rail lines British constructed in India were faliures.
Broad Gauge has lower centre of gravity so it is more safer and also allows higher speeds than standard gauge. More people can be accommodated in broad gauge coaches so cheaper ticket fares.
Also whenever an emergency comes and HSR rail lines have to be used, there will be difficulties with standard gauge.

Reason is climate in the region and topography. Broad gauge is more stable than standard gauge.

THE GREAT IRCTC PANTRY CAR RACKET
Was travelling with my wife by this train which departed from MAS on 7th February. The next day I ordered an EGG MEAL THALI which was served by the PC staff a little before we reached VSKP. I had earlier seen the rate list displayed on a board in the pantry car which indicated that the rates were Rs.50 for a veg meal and Rs. 55 for a non-veg meal. After we had consumed the meal, at about 3 pm, the staff asked me to pay Rs. 160 for the meal. I was well aware of this kind of extortion in this and several other long-distance trains. But I quietly told the waiter that I would

go to the pantry car and pay there.
Later I enquired of the manager why I was being charged Rs. 160 for a meal which according to their own rate board cost only Rs.55. The manager conned me saying Rs.55 was for a STANDARD THALI whereas what I had been served was a DELUXE THALI (whatever that means). I came back without paying.
I whatsupped a few of my admin friends from IRI. They asked me to insist on a bill before payment. One of them also msgd me a mobile number to lodge a complaint which I promptly did. There was an instant response from IR saying the matter is being investigated and they will revert in due course.
Meanwhile the PC staff came again for payment at around 5pm and, as requested, gave me a bill for Rs.160 before collecting the cash. I immediately sent a snap of the bill to my WA group of IRI admins. What followed was a spate of tweets to the Railway Minister and EVERYBODY who is SOMEBODY in IR.
There was a lull till say 8.30 pm by which time the train had reached Khurda Road. Suddenly 2 staff from the PC came to my bay with a dinner thali. My wife and I declined it saying we had finished our dinner. They then REFUNDED me an amount of Rs. 105 (160-55) and requested me to withdraw my complaint. The guys looked pretty menacing and as my wife was scared out of her wits I had no option but to comply with their request. I immediately smsed saying the amount charged in excess had since been refunded and the matter may be treated as resolved. But IR was apparently in no mood to let go and msgd back saying matter will be closed only after due enquiry and action. I am sharing my experience so that it can serve as eye-opener to all my friends here who may face similar situations during train travel.

Pran, the stakes are high and the profit margins are huge. Politicians and railway officials too are involved in these rackets. So the contractors do not mind paying an occasional penalty which they can easily recover from subsequent sales............

Absolutely correct, what they are going to lose with 5K fine, when they are profiting in lakhs. Its nothing. Heavy Penalty, Suspension of Tender is reqd.
