We had taken the Pune - Baroda - A'bad - Udaipur - Ajmer - Delhi some years back. Delhi - Amritsar through Panipat - Ludhiana - Jalandhar.
Thanks for the reply, This route would be very long, Plus the issue is that I can only leave Pune after 3-4PM and this leaves me with a driving window of around 7 hours only hence Ankleshwar on Day 1, Since I don't have many days in hand hence looking for the most efficient route.

Thanks,
Ajit

How about this:

Day 1: Pune - Baroda
Day 2: Baroda - Ajmer/Jaipur
Day 3: to Amritsar

Problem with driving 7 hours only on day 1 is: you'll spend 3 hours just doing Pune - Mumbai.

Bypass Ajmer by taking the Chittorgarh route from Udaipur. That will save quite some time.

You can also investigate the NH3 (Old highway) from Pune to Agra. Then take Yamuna expressway to Delhi.

Just check the Indore-Jaipur route, during rains it may be hell. I prefer the route via Agra.

What happens during rain ?

Two weeks back, I did Delhi - Jaipur - Kishangarh - Bhilwara - Chittorgarh- Nimbahera - Ujjain - Indore.
1. Good roads all through.
2. Indore - Pune traffic is lot less compared to Pune - Mumbai- Surat route.

The Indore Jaipur route is used mostly by trucks, who want to avoid entering UP, so they create large potholes during rains.

NH3 runs through Chambal ravines, so night drive is risky - it is strictly a day drive through Chambal for lone cars.

Bangalore-Bombay-AMD-Ratangad-Hanumangad-Amritsar.
