Welcome to India Rail Info Gaurav. I have just checked there is only one train 17038/ BKN SC EXP from Jodhpur for Secunderabad Jn which runs on 2 days in a week,Friday and Sunday and on 5.3.2015 it is Thursday, train will not run that day. Please check it.
If you want to travel on 6.3.2015 then its booking will open on 5.1.2015 at 08.00 am. Before that go to station master and get all the info from there for your requirement for your convenience.

Since 60 of you are going why don't you book a coach itself. You will have to pay for 72 persons but you will have a full coach for yourself. Since JU is a division visit divisional office and enquire same.
Five Simple Steps to book a Special Train/Coach

Yourself by paying Rs. 50,000 per coach by cash to the Station Manager of the journey commencing station or Demand Draft in favour of Chief Cashier,Western Railway ,Churchgate at Cash Office Churchgate as registration cum security charges. [ At least 18 coaches would have to be booked for a special train. Hence a minimum of Rs. 9,00,000 shall have to be paid as registration cum security charges for booking of a special train." An enhanced security cum registration fee Rs.10,000/-(Ten thousand only) per coach per day for programme exceeding 7 days.

2)Submit an Application in the prescribed format to the Chief Passenger Transportation Manager of the Railway on which your journey commences at least 30 days in advance or a maximum of six months prior to the commencement of the journey. Attach Xerox of the money receipt obtained by paying registration fees.(Application Proforma can be downloaded from the Western Railways website at http:// www.wr.indianrail.gov.in)

3)Await Acknowledgement which shall indicate your position on the waiting list. Final Programme will be confirmed only after examining operational feasibility and haulage confirmation from other concerned Railways.

4)Collect Final Confirmed Programme copy and folder from the office of the Chief Passenger Transportation Manager at least 72 hours before the date of commencement of journey.

5) Approach the Station manager of the journey commencing station with full list and details of intending passengers at least 48 hours in advance for preparation of your ticket

this is for WR. visit JU divisional office and get details

The range of tickets will be lie between 50 and 60.. and it will cost less than 40k if tickets are booked as per standard procedure. then why to waste 50k and secondly, scheme of booking a special train is irrelevant to me. Will you please tell me that, can I adopt this same procedure to book 60 TICKETS ?

first of all 50000 is security deposit and not the cost. cost is calculated per ticket for two and fro once your request is accepted. for bulk booking you will have to take permission from divisional office. BULK BOOKING opens at 9 am on ARP day
In case you require reservation in excess of the above limit of 6 passengers you may contact the controlling officer/Chief Reservation supervisor of the concerned reservation office for permission to book more number of passengers in a group. However, such booking of bulk accommodation is available only after 09.00 hrs on computerized reservation system subject to overall limit on trains as per extant rules and availability of accommodation . Here is step by step guide to
help in bulk booking of berths
Step I Please submit a letter (in two copies) to authorized` officials giving details such as train number, date of journey and of berths and the list of passengers.
Step II Get the permission of the authorizedofficials
Step III Contact the bulk booking counter for purchase of tickets
