Very dirty and unclean sleeper coaches. Always overcrowded (i.e, no of passengers greater than berths) due to boarding of Waitlisted passengers. Be careful of RAC/WL passengers who will always try to take your empty birth for a nap.

Punctuality has been drastically reduced of this train now-a-days. It is stopped several times in between Balasore-Bhubaneshwar, Visakhapattanam-Vijaywada stretch (obvious due to several unnecessary halts). Undergoes good run in Brahmapur-Visakhapattanam & Vijaywada-Chennai stretch.

Beware of regular veg meals being sold at Rs. 120/- instead on Rs. 50. They will not say anything while taking orders but will later say that was a la carte! Please complaint 24X7 at 1800111321 or SMS complaint to 9711111139

In Bogie S2, The toilet near seat S7 and 8, the door could not be closed, and the door remained open continuously, with unreserved passengers, present in the bogie, requesting to adjust the reserved passengers to allow them to sit. They slept on the floor with news papers as bed sheet, in the coupe and near toilet. There was foul smell, when the train stopped either for signal or at station.

Try not to order food from the pantry, worthless food. Use online train food ordering sites.

Try to track Up-Kandari Express which departs at 14:15 and due to greater stoppages it gets overtaken & overtake several times by Coromandel till Uluberia. It undergoes wonderful parallel action in this stretch.
