The rail service will not only provide better connectivity for the residents of the New Ashti-Ahmednagar belt, but will also promote commerce and industries in the local area. Ultimately, the project will help promote socio-economic growth of the Marathwada region. The Diesel Electric Multiple Unit (DEMU) train running on this route will stop at Kada, New Dhanora, Solapurwadi, New Loni and Narayandoho.

Under the share of the state government in the project, the Nagpur-Nagbhid narrow gauge railway will be converted to wide gauge at 107.22. Along with that, the Ahmednagar- Beed- Parli Vaijyanath wide gauge railway will be established for 350 crore.

During the inauguration ceremony, several other celebrities including State Minister for Railways Raosaheb Danve and other political leaders will also be present.

15 crore (approximately) to be spent on modernized land survey

For an accurate and efficient land survey in the area, approximately Rs, 15 crore will be spent on the project. With this money, the land records division will purchase continuously operating reference stations (CORS) and electronic total stations (ETS) to make modern land surveys faster and more efficient. These devices will also bring accuracy to land records.

The project has been stalled since 1996, the year it was approved. Even after the approval, the lack of political will caused the Nagar-Beed-Parli railway project to be repeatedly delayed. At that time, the project cost was estimated at 4000 crores. In a similar line, Nagar Ashti Marg showed some progress when it was completed, but the train was not running.
