One of the smoothest highways that country has . No extra precaution required apart from usual stuff like puncture kit (rarely required. a good to have kind of), first iad and medicines.
You will get plenty of dhabas and numerous food joints like kfc, dominos, pizza hut and so on. Just plan and enjoy :)

Roads are very good of course. Mumbai - Ahmedabad - Udaipur - Jaipur - Rewari - Rohtak - Panipat - Ludhiana - Amritsar. Only the Udaipur-Beawar stretch is two lane , everything else is pretty much 4 or 6 lane smooth highway. Do not take the Chittor-Bhilwara - Kishangarh option to get from Udaipur to Rewari turnoff although many travel forums might have suggested it - this is four lane, but right now there is a lot of road widening work going on and it is full of diversions and random potholes and so not worth it. Even though the direct route through Ajmer is two lane, it is an easy ride with not too much traffic.

Couple of things to be wary of

- The Udaipur-Jaipur stretch has 80kmph speed limit on the 2 lane section and 90 kmph limit on the 4 laned section. Rajasthan Police have invariably a speed dectector van stationed (often at Rajsamand). The Jaipur - Gurgaon section has a speed limit of 80kmph even though it is a 6 lane highway. Again there is a speed detecting van somewhere on that stretch. Equally, from Panipat, in Haryana the speed limit is 90kmph and again there will be a radar van lurking there. Watch your speeds - the fines are stiff and the formal rule is that the licence will be suspended for 3 months for overspeeding.

- The Gujarat section from Ahmedabad onwards is again in the process of 6 laning and there are diversions and potholes. Watch out.

No issues with food joints, hotels and the like. Plenty of them all along.

Have a great drive.
 
Alternate route if you dont want GJ side:

Mumbai - Nashik - Dhule - Manpur bye pass - Ratlam- Mandsaur-Chittorgarh-Ajmer-Jaipur-Rohtak-Panipat-Amritsar.

Mumbai to Chittorgarh - Stay. Facilities are OK en route but Chittorgarh is excellent place for night stay. Good roads throughout. You can avoid all traffic in GJ route. After Chittorgarh it's all good esp once you cross Ajmer and Jaipur. Less than 80 kmph speeds in Haryana.
