You have specified 8x10 in that seems OK. As space below LB is 20in appx. But be sure to specify always HxWxB, for clarity and good response.

@Dipyaman Basu*: Re# 189161-9
2302DN from New Delhi always arrives on platform 8 in the morning. But 2301UP usually departs from platform 9, at least all times I traveled, except once. On April 27, 2010, the train was rescheduled to depart at 19:00 due to Bharat Bandh. It departed from platform 8 that day. I guess railway officials try to berth important trains on platforms 8 or 9 near the cab road

Well, perhaps for all the times I had seen this train at platform 8 was merely a coincidence. :)

Everyone is paying full amount. No body is paying a penny more or a penny less. Berth allocation depends on availability, age, gender, journey legs and various other factors.

1) Snacks should be around 6 pm, dinner at 8:30 pm, breakfast at 7:30-8:00 am.
2) 3-4 hours before the scheduled departure of the train.
3) Click on the train page and check the coach composition.

1) While booking, the booking status was WL/Available.
The max booking status had gone up to WL 3 and due to some cancellations, berths were available.
This was the time when you had booked the ticket.
2)
...
more...
While booking, the current status was WL 3 and just after you booked or in these few days, some tickets were cancelled and hence your berth got confirmed.
Here Confirmed means that you have got a confirmed berth, and WL 3 signifies your booking status.
Similarly, if the current status at your time of booking would have been WL 1, then the Confirmed portion in the PNR would have been replaced by WL 1 and the rest would remain same.
If the ticket says:
Passenger 1: Confirmed (Booking Status: W/L 3, GNWL)
then situation 1 would apply
If the ticket says:
Passenger 1: WL X (Booking Status: W/L 3, GNWL) [Here X<=3], then situation 2 would apply.

I travelled in 2AC 12301up HOWRAH RAJDHANI on 21/6/11. It was my first experience in Rajdhani and wanted to share with you.
The train departed at right time. My 2 ac coach was very nicely cleaned . The toilets were clean. AC was functioning very nicely. The speed of train was marvelous.
Service of the crew was very good. They were prompt , sweet and well mannered.

soon as the train departed we were provided with water bottle. around half an hour later say 1 hour later we were provided with evening snacks which comprised of a sandwich a samosa a laddu a frooti and 2 eclairs along with tea/coffe kit.
around one hour later soup was provided along with bread sticks. it was tomato soup.
for dinner my dish comprised of panner butter masala rice dal makhni 2 piece of paratha ( i seem to forget something ). dinner was served after dhanbad.
at night we were given an ice cream of vannila flavour.
morning breakfast was too good. we were given veg cutlet. hot mix of matar and french fries , tea kit , frooti , a banana , bread along with jam and butter. tea coffe was also supplied.
one more thing to note was you can ask for the menu item more than once and they do not charge for them.
for me the food quality was very good. according to my co-passengers food was " for a change good in taste and of better quality"
It was a very nice experience to travel in Rajdhani.. the speed was very nice. we were travelling before time until when we entered new Delhi area. there because of platform issues or say busy line train was delayed by ten minutes.
A very enriching experience.

Thanks Kothari. Positive feedback about IR is quite rare. Good service is taken for granted but then rightly so as we, as passengers, are entitled to it. But nothing wrong in acknowledging it, at least once in a while.
