This train has many halts but despite that, it maintains an average of about 50 km/h. The AC classes get filled up pretty quickly but getting reservation in SL is not a worry.. But SLs get packed like general coaches in rush period. Overall a pretty good train and maintains punctuality.

This train has OBHS Facility (Onboard House keeping), janitors clean usually during morning & evening hours, may ask for tips after passing Tatanagar.Jn, whom are very polite.
Water available almost everytime which are refilled at Bhusaval.Jn, Nagpur.Jn, Durg.Jn, Bilaspur.Jn, Rourkela.Jn/Tatanagar.Jn

Don't opt this train for end to end travel. Keep it as second last option (last option as legendary kolkata mail).
This trains takes too much time.
So if you want to travel from kolkata to mumbai,and all trains have seats available,then keep priorities as follows:
1. Duranto.
2.
...
more...
Jnaneswari deluxe.
3. Mumbai mail
4. Gitanjali
5. Weekly trains
6. Shalimar ltt
and last as 7. kolkata mail.
And if u are travelling from mumbai to kolkata,then keep priorities to book seats as :
1. Duranto
2. Jnaneswari
3. Gitanjali
4. Mumbai mail
5. Weekly trains
6. Ltt shalimar
7. kolkata mail.
I am saying bcoz i have travelled in all these trains from both ways in 3rd a.c and sleeper. And on the basis of crowd,cleanliness and avaibility,i have ranked them. So plz take it in consideration before doing reservations.

and that's bcoz bro if we consider end to end travel,samarsata is taking a much longer route as compared to jnaneswari deluxe. Even though both these trains shares rake,still i'll go for jnaneswari as it would take less travel time with less fare.

Unfortunately in 2AC there is no charging socket on Side Lower which makes difficult for laptop/Mobile charging.Only option to use it from same charging point available in lower birth bay.

Best train to travel between bilaspur (bsp) to tata and ckp. Ac coaches are better than sleeper.
