It has a ruling gradient of 1 in 65, sharpest curve is 4.95 degree, maximum depth of rock cutting is 22.75 meter and maximum height of bank is 16.13 meter. The commissioning of the section involved major yard remodelling at Chichonda and Teegaon yards. Due to steep gradient, catch cum slip siding has been provided at Gudankhapa and Teegaon yard.

Provision of two lifts at Betul and two lifts at Pandhurna stations will help the Divyangjan, senior citizens and other passengers to go from one platform to the other easily.
