I traveled in this train from Guwahati to Agartala in 3AC. The train reaches GHY almost on time. Once you board it, private caterers will come to take orders from you. However, I will advise you not to take food from them. Instead, for food in your journey, you can do the following things.
1. The train reaches Lumding bang on time at 8.45 am. Because of rake reversal the train stop there for 30 mins. You can get down and from that platform, purchase your breakfast. You can also get lunch from Lumding. Dal, Rice and Curry costs Rs. 50. The private caterers also load food from Lumding but they always charge more for the food so it is the cost
effective option. If you don't want to get down from the train or have some problems then don't worry about not ordering before. The caterers always have food with them and so you can order later also.
2. After Lumding, the train stops at New Halflong. There you will find freshly cut fruits on sale by local vendors. Do try the papaya which is delicious. However, you will not find rice or other conventional food items there so do be careful
3. Badarpur or Karimganj is the place where you can purchase your evening snacks and tea. Karimganj is a slightly smaller in comparison to Badarpur and they will charge more for tea. However, the tea is really good. Stock up biscuits and other items from those two stations and you will be ready for the final stretch.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
