Its a complete waste of money travelling in Rajdhani Express. The catering manager and the serving staff were completely cheap and bloody bastards didn't gave water bottle. I was travelling from New Delhi to Balasore. In night I got a bottle before soup. Today morning at breakfast I asked the staff of B-9 to give water . He said water will be given after 20hours of journey and said to pay 20Rs (mrp was 15) if I need now. My journey time was of 19hours 7 minutes that's why...then staff said to come along with me to Pantry Car to clarify with Manager. I said you call him here. He said its not my duty. I went to then manager which was 3 coaches behind B-9. Manager showed a book where it was written only 1 bottle for passengers going upto Balasore and next bottle after 20hours of journey from Boarding*...
two types of things were written. Today train reached Balasore at 13:27 pm delayed by 1 hour 15 minutes...At 1:05 pm I asked the staff now its 20hours of journey give a bottle...He said in this case you ask to Manager he will surely give..this was 2nd time I went to the manager inspite saying the staff to call him here with complain book..staff went on arranging trays...Now manager says ask to your staff of B-9 because all bottles have been given to serving staffs of respective coaches.Nothing is there in pantry car now ( because it was already lunch time)....then I asked to the staff of B-9 ...usne kaha jo Balasore se aage ja rahe hain mai unko bottle de chuka hun ab mere pass bhi ek bottle nahi...this is the scene in a train like Rajdhani Express...Worst journey ever.
PNR no. 2219003346
B-9 RAC 63
( it got confirmed because the other RAC passenger did not came)
I have given a strong complaint on this water bottle issue. I have seen the TTE also allowing passengers to board from Kanpur Mughal Sarai upto Kharagpur by taking bribe and they sat near the attendant . India kabhi nahi sudharne wala. ye hai India ka Rajdhani Express.

What They Said ...It was 100% right and authentic.
IR rules says that 1 Rail Neer Bottle for 20hrs journey. But You can purchase them from PC for MRP only. This was done wrong by Pantry Staff for asking Rs 20.
You should have complaint about this extra Money demand to the manager. And regarding this rude attitude, you should PG Portal or Send your Complaint through COMS website.

If not getting tkts in 12302/14 or 12260 in heavy rush time also, pls book in this or 22824 upto KGP (for Kolkata bound passengers).
Will Give u RAC for sure if not CNF. Good chances of Confirmation as well.
On board RAC gets CNF mostly.
U can get many trains from KGP for HWH side, after arriving KGP. Just have to
get a GN tkt.

Food Timings:-
Welcome Juice: Just after the train leave NDLS. Served before GZB.
Evening Snacks: Served after train crosses GZB.
Soup & bread sticks: Served by 8 pm.
Dinner: Served Before Kanpur. So Kanpur travelers
don't get Dinner. Do fill your tummy before boarding from Kanpur.
Morning Tea: Served before Koderma.
Morning breakfast: Served between Gomoh and Adra. So Adra boarding travellers don't get Breakfast.
Lunch: Served between Balasore and Bhadrak. Balasore alighting travellers won't get Lunch but passengers alighting at Bhadrak should complete their Lunch in a Hurry. Train hardly takes 55min to 1 hr for BLS to BHC. If catering guy is good enough, then he can parcel your lunch while alighting at BHC , but its completely the catering guy's personal decision.

Bhubaneswar Rajdhani(Via Adra) hauled by Ghaziabad Wap-7 or Wap-4 is the fastest train from New Delhi to Bhubaneswar (As Bhubaneswar Duronto runs with avg delay more than an hour).The power and legacy can be enjoyed in New Delhi-Moughal Sarai Strech where it reaches 130-135kmph Speed.This train follows Howrah Rajdhani and Patna Rajdhani follws it.All these three Trains maintain a time gal of 10minutes.It makes a delay of 15-30 minutes as it reaches Kanpur Central and continues it upto Kharagpur without much change.From Kharagpur to Cuttack it Covers delay and generally reaches cuttack on time or atmost 5-10min delay.From Cuttack to Bhubaneswar the trains runs very slow and some times accumilates 5-10 minutes in Cuttack-Bhubaneshwar strech.It finally reaches Bhubaneswar with a delay of 0-15minutes.Rarely it reaches 5-15 minutes early.
best part of journey is new Delhi-Kanpur with avg speed 93kmph and reaches Mps.

Till last year this train was dark spot for the name of rajdhani. Dirty coach, poor tasteless food and rude attendents. Last year i promised myself not to travel again in this train.
But this month unwillingly had to travel in this train as purushottam was damn full and regret.
Just as i reached near the H1 coach with my heavy luggage, the attendent asked me for my cabin number and happily helped me to reach my seat. I was surprised by this humble nature.
shock for me was the pleasant scent of room freshner that i got after boarding the coach H1. Just as train departed NDLS, T.T.E came. He was very humble and polite. I was in a cabin and with me a old group of uncles were travelling. We were given welcome snack and a water bottle was provided. It comprised of 2 eclairs and a marie gold packet with a mango juice. I asked for some other drink in place mango juice. He politely replaced it with a coke can.
Just after some time evening tea came. It comprised of: Eclairs toffee, Fresh juice/Coke or Pepsi in can, Roasted Dry fruit Cashewnut, Vegetable Patties,Cheese /vegetable sandwich triangle,Good quality besan ka ladoo,Tomato Sauce sachet along with Tea/Coffee.
Then at about 2000 hr tomato soup with butter was brought.
Dinner was served. I asked for veg food as i was having a bit of less trust on the type of chicken/fish IR would serve.
It consisted basmati rice, dal tadka, mutter paneer , roti or parantha, pickle and curd. All this was given in ceramic utensils. No disposable type utensil was given. The paneer dish was delicious and fresh. You can ask for extra roti or rice to the pantry as after serving dinner he will make round and ask you if anything else you need. After that at about 2145-2200 hr, Vanilla Ice cream served. It was of barista company.
AC vents were all working good and a RPF attended was present in the bogie with the attendent and he was checking the whole bogie. At CNB he deboarded and boarded the guard's van. I think he travelled till KGP in the guard's van as per night duty.
Early morning tea was served at 0600hr and it was same as of evening tea.
Breakfast was served way before kharagpur. It was bread slices, cornflakes,butter and jam. For veg it was veg cutlet or paneer cutlet along with finger chips whereas for non veg it was cheese ommlette or normal egg ommlette. Tea/coffee was again served with juice and biscuits.
My timing at BLS was 1200 hr so i was not entitled for lunch.
While deboarding, the attendent came and happily helped me to carry my 3 trolley laguagge till the door. He helped me alighting the train at BLS. After alighting he asked for some tip and i would say i have to give him as after all he helped me to board and deboard the train both at delhi and balasore.

Tickets remain available throughout the year. But for the vacation duration i.e from april last to june first week, getting confirmed ticket in it is bit difficult, specially in 2A. Personally i have suffered this. RSWL 1 didn't even got confirmed even though doing reservations 2 months prior. RLWL, PQWL and RSWL quotas in 2A are very very difficult to confirm.
If in emergency, opt for 3A as it has better chance of getting confirm seats as compared to 2A.

I had travelled in New Delhi - Bhubaneshwar Rajdhani Via Adra in 2'nd AC on 27'th April 2015 . As Soon as we Boarded and left New Delhi Platform, We were given Water Bottle and were given Snacks.
Day 1 :-
Snacks Comprised Of 1 Aloo Patties , 1 Veg Sandwich , 1 Bikano Sohan Papdi Sweet and Tea/Coffee Sachets and Hot Water In Plastic Kettle.

At around 7:30 pm - Soup was Served near Tundla Jn. Tomato Soup is Served which is good in Taste along with Butter Chiplet(In this case it is Nutrilite ) and Soup Sticks and Salt and Pepper Sachets.
At around 8:15 - 8:30pm :- Dinner is Served Comprising Of Paneer Subzi , Yellow Daal , Jeera Rice , Chapatis , Paras Curd and Pickle Sachet. Followed By Cream Bell Vanilla Ice-Cream( Not Seen in Pic ).
Order For Breakfast will be taken After Kanpur (Options are Veg Upma/Veg Cutlet for Vegetarians )
Day2 :-
Around 6:15 am Bed Tea was Served with two Marie Biscuits.
At 7:45 - 8:00 am Before Train Reaches Adra , Breakfast is Served Comprising of 2 Slices Of Brown Bread , Butter Sachet , Boiled Vegetables and Cutlets and Tea/Coffee Sachet.
At 11:30 am Again Same Tomato Soup is Served.
At 12:15 pm after Balasore , Lunch is served again comprising Of Paneer Subzi , Yellow Daal , Jeera Rice , Pickle , Parathas and Paras Curd , Followed by Cream Bell Vanilla Ice Cream.
Overall The Food Quality in this train has improved a lot. Dinner and Snacks from Delhi Base Kitchen are good. Breakfast is very good and Lunch is also good provided by Kharagpur Base kitchen. The Paneer Dish given by Kharagpur Base Kitchen is superb and one of the best you will eat in any Rajdhani , but Daal is just Plain Boiled Water (Tasteless). Rest all the Food provided is of good quality.
Train reached Bhubaneswar 15 Minutes Before Time and Cleanliness Provided on this Train has improved a lot. It was even Cleaner than Howrah Rajdhani( My return Journey was by Howrah Rajdhani ) Thanks to OnBoard Housekeeping staff who were cleaning the floors after every Meals and Toilets were cleaned after 2-3 hours regularly . Overall I had a great journey in this train. It has really improved a lot in terms of Cleanliness and Food Quality, From being the worst Rajdhani it has largely improved.
Beware , You can ask for Extra Dal , Subzi , Roti , Breakfast and he will Politely give but at the end of Journey in all coaches the Pantry Staff will come asking for Tips and will charge a minimum 50-100 Rs.
Overall :- 8/10
Cleanliness - 9/10
Food - 7/10
Bed Rolls - 8/10

This Rajdhani has got good speed.
Punctuality: Unreliable during winter season due to heavy fog but still got good punctuality.
Cleanliness: This train can't be considered as a clean train.
Food quality: Filthy not good.
