Thats because of RSA with RNC/DBRG Rajdhani.
This 3 Rajdhani doesnot have any dedicated rake and have RSA so sometime old rake and some time rake with new coaches are seen.

Have some shame NR zonal staff, your zonal Rajdhani (Bilaspur) which is on time is being stopped/halted for letting in another Rajdhani (Bhubaneshwar) of a different zone, which is I believe is late. Please terminate this Rajdhani at Nizamuddin. It will benefit many passengers.

Compounding the woes of the Railways, total earnings from goods and passengers fell by over 11 per cent from the target in September this year as against the last year for the same period, causing concern in the rail administration.
Railways have earned Rs 12,413.96 crore in September this year as against the target of Rs 13,961.91 crore for the month, a decrease of 11.09 per cent.
The total earnings from goods in September was Rs 7,719.52 crore as against the target of Rs 8,564.27 crore, a decline of 9.86 per cent, according
to Railway Ministry data.
In passenger segment also the earnings are way behind the target as railways earned Rs 3,815.43 crore as against the target of Rs 4,253.71 cr, a decrease of 10.30 per cent.
Passenger bookings were also fell short of target with total 683.17 million passengers booked in September as against the target of 686.61 million.
The Railways has recently rationalised the freight rate to attract more loadings and introduced flexi-fare system in premier service including Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains to shore up revenue collection.
Admitting decline in revenue collection, a senior Railway Ministry official said, “There is a general decline in demand and it is a cause of concern. Several steps are being initiated to perk up the earnings.”
Railways has announced many ambitious projects including massive expansion and modernisation of rail network and the shortfall in earnings could cause problem in its future plan.- PTI

Yes it is bound to fall as a result of surge pricing mischievously coined flexi fare. Almost all short distance passengers who used to utilize the services of the Shatabdi are going by Volvo, deluxe, super deluxe AC buses. Moreover Spicejet, Air Asia, Air India are offering very good schemes. In a market driven economy this is bound to happen. Who will pay 50% above the regular fare for journey in trains which lack punctuality, cleanliness, good catering facilities.

Oct 12 2016 (12:12)   Rajdhani, Shatabdi travel time reduced, says Railways

Route Relay Interlocking system was installed on busy routes to ensure faster movement of trains and this has resulted in reduction in journey time of several trains
New Delhi: A signalling system upgrade on congested routes has helped the Indian Railways reduce the running time of 14 premier trains, including the Rajdhani Expresses from the national capital to Howrah and the Patna and Delhi-Amritsar Shatabdi.
A total of 350 Mails/Expresses and 74 Superfast trains, including Rajdhanis and Shatabdis, are now reaching destinations 5-25 minutes before time because of removal of bottlenecks and rationalisation
of timetable, said a senior railway ministry official.
The journey time of Rajdhani services for Bhubaneswar, Sealdah and Dibrugarh and Chennai-Coimbatore and Howrah-Puri Shatabdi trains has come down due to the improvement in the signalling system.
The official said the Route Relay Interlocking (RRI) system was installed on busy routes to ensure faster movement of trains and this has resulted in reduction in journey time of several trains.
Route Relay Interlocking system is used in large and busy stations that have to handle high volumes of train movements. Under the system, an entire route through the station can be selected and all the associated points and signals along the route can be set at once by a switch for receiving, holding, blocking, or dispatching trains.
Interlockings operate solely without a human operator. “We have managed to save total 130 minutes in 12 Rajdhani trains and 60 minutes in six Shatandi trains due to various measures being undertaken in a gradual manner,” he said, adding that “major changes were carried out at Allahabad junction, the most congested section, to speed up services.”
Besides, construction of rail overbridges, underbridges and limited height subways at many level crossings on the busy routes resulted in doing away with halting time. The reduction in journey time has been included in the new timetable, effective from 1 October.

Oct 03 2016 (12:56)   Your travel on Rajdhani, August Kranti to get better

Passengers on Mumbai-New Delhi Rajdhani and August Kranti Express travelling in AC coaches will soon be greeted and welcomed by train staffers.
The Western Railway has planned to introduce new service protocol with the help of Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) by October 10.
The railways has proposed the initiative in Mumbai after the introduction of rail hostess in Delhi-Agra Gatiman Express.
the idea behind the initiative, Mukul Jain, division railway manager of Mumbai Central division of WR, said the ticket checkers and catering staff will greet every passenger before the journey.
“The train superintendent, ticket checkers and staffers will welcome passengers and introduce themselves. They will hand over napkins, water bottles and Rail Bandhu magazine to passengers,” added Jain.

IRCTC will train staffers in etiquette and protocol before implementing it, said a senior official.
WR also launched printed bed sheets, recyclable napkins and pillow covers and eco-friendly bags made of newspapers. These have been made by inmates of jails in the state.
Railway officials said low-cost printed bed sheets, smaller than the previous ones, be introduced for the first time. Passengers will be asked to give feedback by filling forms which will be distributed with the bedrolls. They can also give feedback through a mobile app. Jain said this initiative has been launched on three coaches of Mumbai-Jaipur Express on an experimental basis and will be extended to other trains based on the feedback.
Deputy inspector general (prison) Swathi Sathe said they are in talks with the railways to allow prisoners to make furniture and do laundry work. “This is just the beginning and we are eyeing to provide more services to the railways,” she said.
The railways has said it would display paintings in three Duranto and a Shatabdi trains departing from Mumbai. The WR officials said they have collaborated with the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists’ Association for the art work.

Stop this show business and roll back surge pricing mischievously termed flexi fare. That will be the greatest service to passengers.
