my wife with two children travelled fr ndls to tata on 5 oct on this train , these are some observation
1. the service provided by the Meal on wheel vendor is very poor. the food is tasteless and of poor quality, almost everybody complaining about it and meal was not served on time breakfast is not provided till 11 a.m. further there are serving food items on selective basis (items are not provided to each passanger) because of this there was chaos/confusion in the coach b5. they are refusing to serve food to child ( having half tkt with seat) giving excuse of name not mentioned in the chart ( althogh the fare includes catering charges),
they were giving only one bottle of water during the travel fr ndls to tata, when demanded one more in the next moring by my wife there are demanding rs 20 for this . this is height of negligence by the railway to leave this premium train in the unworthy hand of non deserving contractor in spite of railway increasing rajdhani fares day by day.
2. the train is losing its premium status due to poor service of attandand, food, late running .
3. the charging points in B5 coach is not working.
4. there was no train supritendant to look after the passanger.
5. the attandant not provding newspaper to all passanger,
6.the train reached tatangr by more than 3 hour late

Sir, Good you have written it here in this forum and highlighted the same. As others have mentioned, you may please do the following
1) Tweet to the railministry & RB
2) Log onto complaint management portal & register your complaint online [click here
3) Also try and registering in the grievance portal. [click here
maximum it is highlighted, the better it is, even though you might get a standard response : 'The matter has been taken into consideration' OR 'We have warned the caterer '.
I think we should not shy away from highlighting such things

Next Time if you suffer this kind of attitude in Any train, kindly register your complaint in the complaint book provided to the PC manager and also with the Coach attendent.
Now everything what you said is correct and unacceptable. BUT regarding Water bottle, Sir The Railways Catering Rules say that Only ONE water bottle is to be provided to a passenger for a time span of 20hrs. NDLS-TATA journey duration is 17:30hrs, so you are allowed for 1 bottle only. This doesnt means that If the train is delayed by 2-3hrs, the will give away the bottles for free.You have to purchase the extra bottle if you need.
the rest of the points, Sir kindly complaint it to COMS or Twitter handle or PGportal. And from next time kindly register your complaint in the complaint register before alighting.
