This train and JB are easily the best non-premium SF train between Kolkata and National Capital region. Speed upgradation to 130 mps has done wonders, the train has a terrific run and is punctual throughout the route, infact remains BT on most stations. One complain is that the train was not maintained and cleaned at ANVT. Toilets of AC3 were already dirty when the train was placed at ANVT, and OBHS also didn't do a good work of cleaning the coach enroute. Unfortunately the pantry has not started functioning fully, just basic stuff and meals are available as of now. Earlier had an exceptional pantry service. Less stoppage also means less local passengers and less chances of theft, hence safety too is pretty good.

There was a time this was a good Train.

But then it has lost its name. After having less stops it got delayed in any season not matters it's summer or winter.

ANVT to CTC, delayed doesn't hurt much

But in return journey it can create huge problem as it's schedule time is 7:30 PM at which it will/had never reached. Generally arrive at Delhi around 12 midnight.


Food and Cleanliness - Both are worse , In AC class or in Sleeper . LHB coaches also didn't help to improve cleanliness

Ticket Availability:
In sleeper - Very Bad need to book before 45 days generally

it is impossible to travel in Sleeper class. There is so much rush.

People sleep on floor, gates. Your confirmed seat became a waiting list seat.

RPF is also a problem, They came and sit on your seat this also applicable on AC Class also

Punctuality - Except in Winters, Train not get delayed by more than 2 hours.

Since Timing at Destination (Puri or New Delhi) is so early that 2 hours doesn't matter

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
