Now-a-days it maintains timing only upto asn/kiul afterwards starts loosing time. Condition worsens in PNBE-MGS section by the chain pulling by daily up down passengers in the section and frequent stoppages like ara/buxar/danapur. And if it reaches MGS late more than 30 mins, then gets trolled by SK, and raj gang. Avoid this train specially in upcoming foggy winter season.
Apart from timing ,
coach condition - good,

- ok,

This Journey Turned Out To Be A Nightmare. The Worst Train Journey In Last 5 Years. It Maintained Its Schedule Till ASN. From There It Started Getting Delayed. Reached PNBE & MGS 1 Hr Behind Schedule. As We Woke Up In The Morning, We Learned That The Train Is Running 4 Hours Late. And Since Then It Never Behaved Like A "Super Fast". Reached NDLS At 12 Noon. Pantry Staffs Are Worst Of All. Through Out The Journey, They Only Offered TEA & No Coffee. Even There Wasnt Biscuits With Tea Even Though They Charged INR 10/- . Even On Board House Keeping Staffs Were Not As Efficient As In Gyaneshwari Or Gitanjali

Don't worry I am with you. I have faced same problem with 12304 a little year ago. I would like to mention you that 12381/12382 Poorva Express via Gaya is more Punctual than 12303/12304 Poorva Express via Patna.

Dipanjanda, Poorva has Super Service. It was First Super Deluxe Train of India. Poorva is fifth Best train After Howrah Rajdhani, Sealdah Rajdhani, HWH-NDLS Duronto and SDAH-NDLS Duronto Between Kolkata and Delhi

We travelled on 12303 Poorva Express on May 18 th to NDLS. On that day it was had its LHB coaches instead of ICF coaches. The train was run with LHB coaches on 3oth April for the first time. We reached NDLS at 7:02 AM, 3 mins ahead of scheduled time.
