– Murtajapur to Karanja is 31 kms in distance

– There is good frequency (I guess 30 mins) ST buses from Murtajapur to Karanja and vice-verse.  While reaching to Karanja, 2 ST buses crossed our vehicle.

Same thing, while coming back from Karanja, while I was sitting in the ST bus, 2 more ST bus were stationed for Murtajapur



  1. Is there any chance to start travelling from Shegaon to Karanja by road only?. How much travel time by road? We have booking of Vidarbha Express from Thane to Shegaon & return by Vidarbha from Shegaon to Thane next day.
