Thanks once again, onlymakarand. After weighing pros and cons all the 3 alternative routes available, I have finally decided to drive on Bangalore>Pune>Ahmednagar>Shirdi>Malegaon>Dhule>Indore route. My MMI navigator shows a distance of 1450 km with a timing of 29.5 hours from my home to Ginger, Indore. The distance is the longest and the timing, the quickest of all the 3 alternatives. On this route, except the Ahmednagar-Malegaon bypass stretch of 170 km, which is a 2-laned SH, the remaining roads are all excellent 4-laned toll roads.
