It will never travel as per schedule. Every time it leaves with 30 minutes delay from Vijayawada and continue the delay till the end. Even we also don't know why this train halts every time at secunderabad outer for 15 to 20 minutes
it starts from secundereabd bang on time but reaches destinations with an average delay of 20-30 minutes
Travelled on 7-2-2018 from BZA to SC in 12705 ice, the train reached BZA with delay of 48min which got extended to 1hr20min at final destination i.e SC.what made even worse and frustrating was even with more than one hour delay it was made to halt at SC outer at 22:51 for about 20mins to enter SC. It gets delayed regularly, with Avg 20mins late.
From BZA, 12795 ICE is better than this. It will reach with out any delay. Everyday this 12705 ICE will be late for 1 hour by the time it reaches SC.
Bza ice is better it is short route and no stops, it doesn't start at sharply. 5.30 at bza nor reaches Gnt without delay.
Actually while onward journey, Morning i was to board BZA intercity but couldn't reach station on time so boarded krishna Exp. For return i booked in advance for 12705 because i thought it reaches sc earlier than BZA(believed tt of 12705). But 12705 departed Bza before 12795 and reached SC after 12795.
many times 19412 Ajmer Ahmedabad ICE. takes 20-25 Mins from Sabarmati to Ahmedabad for 3km
