Charging points are present in Side Berths of the Sleeper coaches of 12834/3. I had 8 SU but remained in 7 SL as the SL pax wanted to sleep on the 6 UB which was empty.. I kept my phone charging throughout the journey. Tight security was there (observed till TATA as I got off there.)

Excellent timings. Not a single day will be wasted for Howrah - Tatanagar passengers. Please don't hesitate to book WL 200+ in SL, WL 50+ in 3A or WL 25+ in 2A. Under normal circumstances all will get Confirmed. If you don't want to take any chance then wait for the charting. Chart is usually prepared between 19:30 - 19:45. You will get in Current Booking. 🙏

I boarded the train on 14/10/2018 at CSMT. Train was running on time throughout. Train was late by 1 hour at Tatanagar Jn. After Mecheda, the train stopped at every station. Was stuck at Santragachi for 35 minutes. Finally reached Howrah at 2300hrs, late by more than 3 hours. But the RailYatri app shows that train reached at 2108hrs.
