i must say punctuality was poor. being a Duranto reached Howrah 2 hours late . I had to catch 12321 at 22.00 hrs from HWH which I thought would miss but anyway boarded 12321 at 21.50 hrs.
Duronto was almost 30 mins late at Nagpur , 1 hour late at Bilaspur and after it moved very slowly, made many unscheduled halts . I thought it would show some duronto like run after it enters South Eastern territory(being the most important train of SE Railway) after jharsuguda , but there also stopped at almost 7 stations between Jharsuguda and Rourkela , seemed like it was running behind a goods train.
I had to tweet regarding this and got a reply within 30 mins and after that from Rourkela onwards the train showed action and covered the rest of journey without any unscheduled halt.
The train runs more or less like an express train for most part of its journey.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
