I have traveled in this train many times. Not good in any term, be it punctuality cleanliness or coach conditions. Earlier this used to be the only train between delhi and mangalore and there was no choice (except rajdhani, which is expensive). Now there are much better trains around. LHS coaches are a must for these kind of long distance trains. arrives at a very odd time at mangalore. Avoid if you can.

You are absolutely right with regards to condition of coaches. I have travelled many times in Ac 2 tier coaches of this train. Its a real pity that AC 2 tier coaches are much older and not at all maintained properly. Even the washrooms are not cleaned at regular intervals. This is the condition of AC 2 tier coaches, cant imagine the condition of sleeper coaches. AC 3 tier coaches are much well maintained than AC 2 tier coaches. Only plus point for this train is the food which is of acceptable standard. Punctuality and cleanliness as you said better to forget the same.
