I usually tip the guy before the journey commences. This way I get all the extras I want and different flavors of ice cream too.

Depends on what service you expect from them. I myself have had good service everytime I have traveled by 1st AC in this train. Those guys knew exactly what kind of food I prefered, whether or not to give me extra rice/roti/chicken; when to wake me up in the morning and acted as per my convenience and liking.
Consequently, I did not mind paying 200 Rs. for both of them every time I had board the train.

Some of them just stand there with a "gimme the tip" face.

The father of the nation on a currency note is a great motivator and the more you pay the more likelihood of you getting a better service but yeah don't go overboard......start off with a low amount and depending on the service you get pay them accordingly and don't be hard on yourself if you pay a smaller amount if the service is "Iffy" as it's your hard earned money and you deserve it more than anyone else.
