Even on 12102 Jnaneshwari Delx Meals on Wheels guys sell Dinner/Lunch at ₹.120 which it's not worth.
Reason is they have many buyers whom readily buy at any price. In a recent journey by my sister in 12860 Gitanjali Express on 14/07/16 (Sunday) was charged ₹.170 for dinner which she demanded bill & when it was refused, she threatened to complain over Twitter, then only they returned ₹.100 to her! While co-passengers were least bothered about this over charging, so just imagine what's mentality of people!

I have travelled in Jnaneswari and Samarsata , and i have pressurized the PC guys to provide me the actual priced Food. They 1st became off-guard and rejected saying that its the Railway price. I asked for Menu card and they gave up.
In end, their reply came , " Sir railways ke different food rates hain. 170 hai, 120 hai, 70 hai and 55 bhi hai. Aap jo demand kar rhe thhe wo sasta wala meal hai."
I replied, " Koi baat nahi. Tum wohi leke aao and AS PER
...
more...
THE MENU hi lana or else ek call karunga , tumhare manager ki hawa tight ho jayegi."
So, the only thing matter is Passengers mentality. While this much scene was happening, my co-passengers were least bothered and were busy filling their tummy with "Overpriced Food".

True! boiled eggs in curry without light frying gives feel of chewing rubber, I too opt for veg as paneer is very much better to eat...
Thanks for the tip!

Awesome Great trip dairy Nice writeup.
TRIP REPORT - 22324/ER GCT KOAA (GAYA - BWN)
Trip report for my journey done along with our IRI member & friend Mr.Amit Kumar Singh (Bhilai) on 17th December 2016 (Saturday) from Gaya.Jn to Barddhaman.Jn
Reached Gaya.Jn station at 05:40 Hrs, spotted Mumbai Mail arriving at pf#01 along with a WAP-7 HWH, while we moved along with our luggage on pf#02-03, it was 05:45 Hrs but still no announcement or name over display board then heard a shrill sound of horn along with bright headlight, yes that was our train to board -
...
more...
much hyped 22324 Shabd Bhedi Express over pf#02 but along a red WAP-4 HWH. Still there was no announcement nor coach position displayed over pf, we hurried on to our coach that was S6 33LB, 34MB, 36LB. As soon as we got seated over berths finally the announcer woke up to announce this trains arrival, that too with very unpleasant hoarse sound but by that time train was already rolling! I would say I was very much disappointed by this poor behaviour at such important station! Well after departure train started gaining speed it was very cold outside & a bit foggy too! After passing Paharpur we started slowing down for upcoming Gurpa - Gujhandi Ghat section ahead, which was a new experience for me as in past journeys this section was passed during night time. I took out the cellphone & starting recording the section admist chilly cold winds, which literally froze my hand of it's warm blood, but still kept on with railfanning! At this section we crossed many trains which were re-scheduled from Kolkata side, at Gomoh.Jn we overtook a train. Arrival at Dhanbad.Jn was very early at around 30 mins from it's scheduled arrival over pf#01. We hopped outside over platform to get some tea & snacks, we over train too vendors were selling tea, but we preffered station tea & samosas (singara). We cheched the loco link again to take some front snaps but due to presence of large numbers of RPF guys & instead returned towards backside & Ranchi Shatabdi Express arrived at pf#05 with a WAP-7 HWH. While departing saw a WAM-4 MGS over pf#02 with some Passenger service awaiting to depart. Till Asansol run was good just at one place we slowed down to cross Maithoon river, thereafter straight halt at Asansol.Jn. At Asansol ELS saw couple of WAP-4's, WAG-7 & twin WAP-7 (probably new). halt at Durgapur.Jn was short & sweet over pf#04. After that we started sorting out over belonging to alight at next halt that was at Barddhaman.Jn while Amit was to alight at Kolkata Terminus (Chitpur). Prior to entry at BWN we were kept waiting at outer while a WAG-7 JHS hauled CONCOR rake was slowly in parallel direction overtooking us, but withinn some moments we were given to proceed to finally overtake that freighter & I was just waiting to board BWN CHORD EMU. Arrival at Barddhaman.Jn was over pf#05, we bid farewell to Amit & ran to buy tickets, finally when arrived saw HWH CHORD EMU had already arrived over pf#04. We boarded EMU & I finally dozzed off over window seat & proceeded to have cubersome journey till Dankuni.Jn.
Thank you for reading the trip report & positive feed backs expected!

Ok... so you got the privilege to take snaps of this newbie train at Gaya, Dhanbad, Asansol, Durgapur and Bardhamman... all biggie stations covered between Mughalsarai and Kolkata for this train. Nice snaps... did your train slow down at GMO or skipped at a decent speed since track renewal work was going on over there some months ago ? :)

Pic 23 is Barakar river bridge is sort of border that marks end of Jharkhand and beginning of West Bengal. With KMME (my home station) in Jharkhand and Barakar station in WB. Besides as this train goes to KOAA its route must separate from Dankuni JN so it would halt for signal or something. I have once seen SDAH Rajdhani halting there. So u could have debaorded there. In case it didnt halt there was no way but to come back from KOAA by bus or train.

Travelled in this train on 11 september 2016. I would advise fellow travellers, if possible don't book your tickets in SL class of this train, especially single males or males travelling in group. The enunchs/hijras would start bothering you right after train departing from hatia. But situation gets worse after 1am i.e. from baragarh road (i don't remember station name correctly as it was dark outside). 3 enunchs came in sleeper coaches and started slapping the WL passengers sleeping at doors to wake them up and forcibly took money from them. They did the same in whole coach. And every male passenger was forced to give atleast 10 rs. 5 rupee note not accepted. Were they out of their mind or what, extorting money at mid of night? After that from Raygada till renigunta you can expect that at every stop (only scheduled stops, this train hardly has any...
more...
unscheduled stops, in my journey unscheduled stop was only twice for 2 -4 mins before vizianagram and 10 min at vijaywada outer) enunchs will come and demand money and most of them do such " nautanki" that ultimately you pay. So do book your tickets wisely. I don't guarantee that they don't enter AC coaches, only assuming as normally they demand money only in SL coaches.

Yes! As a responsible traveler you must complain over PG Portal or directly to Railway Minister over Twitter.
Problem of this eunuchs are most severe in Eastern India I'd faced. & till date I haven't given even a Paisa to such eunuchs, instead I abuse like hell & threaten to make video to send to DRMs & Rail Minister.

Finally today i.e. 6/02/2017, I got the reply regarding this complaint I have sent on pgportal on 19/10/16. I got a letter as attachment in mail from chief security commissioner, SCR stating that they are trying to curb this menace by conducting raids on trains time to time and they are sorry for inconvenience faced during the journey. I had given up the hope of getting my complaint addressed but at last after about 4 months got a reply. Hope they do their work with full force so that passengers may enjoy their journey instead of thinking when this journey will end.
