yes..majority of kolkata and odisha people takes this train due to its enough aggresive and fast tt....it gets a bit late near around BZA,but still covers the late between BZA ad VSKP in night time....but then gets late near BBS and CTC ...and also sometime if more than 3omin late,then gets overtaken just near balasore by rajdhani exp......
At the last leg of its journey, between KGP and HWH it punches maximum speed and reaches HWH exactly at 17:45 (its correct arrival time at howrah).It makes up all delay between KGP and HWH.
If its late at ctc,then just before balasore it gets rampaged by bbs rajdhani. Then it gets bit more late at balasore also becoz it has to wait till rajdhani gets cleared of balasore as rajdhani also stops at bls. But after bls,falaknuma only has 2 stops and enough slack is given. 231 km from bls to howrah,,and time taken is 3hr 53min. Avg speed is just 59kmph.
