If travelling in sleeper opt for s6 as it is the only coach having working mobile chargers in each bay( starting from Anand vihar). This is 2010 coach but quite smooth.
Small rake acceleration is very good. Don't take chance at station as it moves faster than other trains.

If you book through IRCTC then it is mentioned preferred coach id . This is written below where the option for auto - upgradation is given .
The setas will be alloted after charting is done.
Though it is not guaranteed that you will get seats in your preferred coach .
can request booking cleark for desiered coach if you went at PRS

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake.
