Directions and Routes
Arrival at NWA
Reaching NWA campus is perhaps the only difficult part of attending a program at NWA. Although we are trying to make available transport on arrival, presently we are unable to do so, particularly when participants arrive individually. Transport to railway station/ bus station is usually provided on the day of departure. Participants will have to make their own transport arrangements to reach NWA.
Khadakwasla being outside Pune limits, three-wheelers may sometimes be reluctant to come or charge something extra. Pre-paid service is available at Pune railway station and airport and is the best option. A reasonably good bus service is available from the Railway station (Route No. 49); from Shaniwarwada in city center (Route No. 50, 51 and 52). These last three routes also come via the Swargate inter-state bus terminus. The bus service runs upto 2230 Hrs. Facility of Radio Cab is available in Pune. ( OLA cabs : 020-33553355; Easy ride cabs : 020-27400800; Wings cab 020-40100100 ). Facilty of pre-paid taxi is also available from Pune Airport. The NWA campus is located right on main road, with a bus stop close to the hostel entry gate, and therefore there is no distance to be walked from the bus stop. Check-in desk at the hostels operates round the clock.
Reaching NWA when arriving in Pune at late night can be a little difficult. Although Pune is generally considered a safe city, NWA is located somewhat outside the city limits and travel at midnight is not exactly the best thing to do.
As a policy, NWA requires the participants to attend the program completely, from first session to the last session. Attendance certificates are given only to the participants who attend thus. For this, it is advisable to arrive a day before and plan the departure after 1700 hours of the concluding day. Accommodations allotted to Participants should normally be vacated within 24 hours after the conclusion of the course to facilitate preparation for receiving the next group of participants.
