Bedding packet with pillow and kambal was in place while boarding the train. Cant say pillow cover and bedsheets were good, but they were not bad either. towel was also in the pack and it was clean. kambal was also fine, no itching or rashes. (TD:29/01/2016 cbe-njp)

pantry is by ""meals on wheels". food is good but dinner may get little late.
this time i tried station food in many places.
attaching pics of the same.
Erode - Cell Kitchen - Veg meals - 40RS inside stall. Quantity less - quality average.
Salem
...
more...
- Arenco catering - Lemon rice, Curd rice - 25Rs each sold with premium in platform (look for the seal before buying). Quantity good - quality very good. Those who have travelled in 12677/12678 Bangalore - Ernakulam intercity express will be knowing well about Arenco catering. The food was good till night.
Renigunta - IRCTC food stall - veg meals - 60Rs. quantity less - quality average.
Vishakapatnam - platform vendors - idli, masal dosa. quantity, quality - average.
Brahmapur - Food track stall (almost at the end of the platform) - Egg meals - 110Rs. Quantity ok - quality good. Ask for roti or you may not get. Fish / Chicken meals - 140Rs.
hijli / midnapore station - Veg / fish / egg meals - from local vendors.
Malda Town - platform vendors - Idli - 60Rs - 3 pieces (!!!)

A1 coach was a 2014 rehabilitated (if im right coach number is 98055). Curtains were clean , with all clips. coach was neat. no coackroaches or rodents sighted. AC was maintained really good. Never felt inhaling stale air or headache in 50 hrs journey. In all the four toilets in the coach the lower attachments were found dislodged from the toilet sink. so irrespective of cleaning the toilet appeared dirty. God knows when it goes for overhauling, gets noticed and repaired.

The last charting takes place at NJP. Hence, even if you have a ticket from CBE to CAPE, the charting will take place about 4 hours before the train reaches NJP and not your source station.

Better carry your own power banks as there are no ports in some of the coaches.Forget about the individual ports , there are no common ports even.

IRCTC supplies food that is loaded from stations on the way. Breakfast - bread 3 slices with double egg omlette - 40INR. Lunch and dinner rice with veg / non veg - veg lunch has rice (qty is less), dhall, subji, pickle, spoon and disposable plate - costs 60. Better to depend upon local food available in platform - you can enjoy varieties economically. Biriyani is available in almost all stations , anytime.

Till you get out of orissa, you will get hawkers selling various food varieties inside the coach, itself - even if it is 2A. but once when the train enters andhra - you have to get down to stations.
In andhra if you are interested to buy dry grapes from hawkers inside the coach, dont feel any urgency. The offer starts at 3 packs for 100INR and goes till 10 packs for 100 INR.

You'll get relief only after the train enters BZA where the coaches are cleaned properly.After TVC you may find yourself lonely as there will not be anyone in TVC - CAPE section
