if you want to board previous station den you need to book a new ticket and if you want to change a boarding station after ur reservation station u can change it but only once.

Unfortunately that is not possible. You can always buy another ticket (Reserved or Unreserved) from your desired boarding point to the current boarding point and change your seat/coach at the latter.

I was a passenger by SL of 16176 Karaikal (KIK)-Chennai Egmore Express on 16 Nov, 2013. I noted that the coaches weren't swept, though KIK was the point of origin for the train, and the train was available for about 8 hours in the station. The toilets were also stinking as they were not cleaned. I don't know if this is the case daily, or my day it was so.
The railways charge us for all these amenities.

The cleaning of this train is ultimate. They have completely overhauled the cleanliness over the last one year. On-board house keeping facility is available on this train. Toilets are frequently cleaned by on-board staff in addition to the contract cleaning at Solapur station. Soaps, hand wash is available at toilets. Floors inside the coach also cleaned at time to time. Perfumes are sprayed at regular intervals. To be short, inside compartments will make you feel at genuine 3-star hotel. 2AC coaches are older look than 3AC coaches. Hence prefer 3AC over 2AC while booking.

Are the Sleeper Class Coaches also kept like this. An 'yes' reply would be superb!

I'm very sorry, I did not travel in SL coaches in last one year and did not even visited there to know more about it. However, with my old experience (over five years), it was average. Further, the return train 11014 cleanliness condition is very very worst because of very less buffer time given at CBE.

I don't think you're right. I had been at the NDLS station twice when the 12045 left in the evening. They were full as I noticed the charts. I had travelled by 12011 thru CDG and there were so many who got down and got into the 12011 at CDG. How do you know that 100-200 seats go vacant in 12031? I checked the reservations of Exct Class and they are full for atl east till 10 Nov. That is the reason.
