RAC allocation (General quota GNWL, HWH to YPR) in Sleeper class is 168.
That means, for example, if you have a Waitlisted ticket GNWL 70, here is how it works:
WL 70,69,68....3,2,1, RAC 168, RAC 167 ... RAC 2, RAC1, CNF, CNF

1. The train runs overcrowded for the entire journey. Sleeping on the floor next to toilet and between the lower berths is a common sight in sleeper coaches. Be prepared to go to the right exit to board/deboard the train.
2. The Sleeper rakes are full of cockroaches and rodents. Be careful with luggage/ food and kids.

What a sad scene! IR needs to introduce few more express trains between Howrah and Bangalore. Since this train pass thru so many big junctions, question is do most passengers travel end-to-end or is there high rush among intermediate stations for this train?

What I have seen is it has mostly end to end passengers. Intermediate stations have very less quota. Saw similar crowd in MYS-HWH weekly exp too!!

worst part is cause of ECOR it extended prasanthi from VSKP from BBS and there is no single trainf starting from VSKP to SBC if a train is introduced then half problems are solved but ECOR does not care about waltair division it is only concerned about orissa highly biased

True. BBS-YPR Exp is still better. One can book from VZM and change BP to VSKP. Took BBS-YPR train yesterday and almost 150+ ppl boarded from VSKP.

VSKP is a big junction. There should be one daily superfast express train from VSKP to Bangalore. Also there should be one daily train from Howrah to Trivandrum, ernakulam.

Kolkata - Chennai = Coromandal SF
Similarly,
Kolkata - Bengaluru = HWH YPR SF.
This train is Daily but still you will never find this train empty. Never even think of trying the General compartment specially during Festival seasons of Odisha and Bengal.

with Bengal , this train is severely packed from Odisha also. Sleeper are always crowded. At night time, WL/UR passengers would be sleeping near your berths and near doors.
And at Day time, the area near doors and basins is fully packed.
If you are traveling in family/with Ladies and can afford bit money, then kindly opt for AC class or else for YPR Duronto (If Bengal travellers) or else newly started YPR AC SF.
Sleeper class journey in this SF daily Train is a Pain of Body and Head.
PS: Good News is ALL the SL coaches of this train have Charging Points near every seat and are Bio-Toilets equipped. But then If you wish to use laptop, then take extra care of Theft or Burglary.

Passenger unable to get tickets in Durga Puja from Bangalore to Howrah in Duronto Exp or YPR-HWH SF Exp can try this option:-
22818- Mysore Howrah SF (Due to odd timing at Bangalore it doesn't get filled up).
Or you can try via/chain/buffer shown in IRI /search/136/0/1

It was 8:00 and I logged into IRCTC to book 2AC tickets from Yesvantpur to Howrah and when I paid and proceeded at 8:02, 2 of the 4 tickets were wait listed (This was peak summer, hence the rush). Even during other times, the rush in this train is very high. May lady luck be on your side while you book tickets in this one.
