Coaches are old, dusty & rusty. There are no charging points near seats except the S14 coach which is 2008 built in ICF, also AC coaches are old, bad cleanliness, toilets are smelly like hell and it's vinyl floor mats are always soaked in water like sponge with comes out.
This train has onboard 'Janitors' (cleaning staff) whom sweep at regular intervals but still inspite of it train is dirty.
Gitanjali lives upto it's name only in terms of Speed & Punctuality

The train is no longer the prestigious train that it was earlier.As you rightly said some of the coaches are really bad. Also the number of stops has increased a lot .....though still preferred by passengers for its timings.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. .

Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
