and fur blanket.

>>hygiene: 3.5/5 rating. toilets were super clean and well maintained. vestibule area was also clean. jampacked AC class --- do not expect much cleanliness by fellow passengers.

>>punctuality: 3.5/5 rating (condition applies). Even though we were running late after Pune/Gulbarga and the train made up lost time (courtesy: slack time) and we departed from DMM right time. But reached KJM horribly late by 2 hrs.

>>Speed: 4.5/5 rating. ED alco was doing good 100-110 kmph speed at many stretches.

>>Catering: catering was good (as reported by fellow passengers) till we were under WR/CR and after that same SCR/SWR style stale/dull food.

Note: No charging points in Side berths. AC cooling was upto mark.
