Gitanjali Exp is very good train in terms of Speed, Puncuality, & Priority. But in terms of Cleaning very Bad. In my journey my coach was S11 2014 made Coach no 14217 is in very pethentic from inside. In my Journey on 30/03/17 toilet cleaning done only at Roukala. Full coach is dirty.

Gitanjali is a train known for its speed and punctuality despite the rather high number of halts between Bhusaval and Jharsuguda. The tickets in this get sold out very quickly and hence getting one is difficult. However, the Sleeper class coaches were as good as unreserved (I travelled from NGP to DURG). If you are travelling in AC then peace of mind is guaranteed but for Sleeper class, prefer Jnaneswari/Samarsata/Mumbai Weekly SF etc. ! (Based on personal experience)

This train is almost running punctual i.e. somewhat running late upto 1 hour. Its speed is increased with entering the state of Maharashtra, especially, Nagpur. I travelled in this train several times but I got only 2 results. One of them is that its punctuality. Its scheduled time at NGP is 7:20 but it sometimes reach at 7:45. Another one is that if it is running late then slowly-slowly its speed is increased between 2 halts that's why the late duration also decreases upto its destination.

I Personally Have Traveled By Gitanjali.... There Are Some Restaurant Guys, Who ll Come Onboard With Ready To Eat VEG MEALS.... They Charge Around INR 125/- [ It Was 125 In 202]. You Wont Even Need To Get Down From Your Comfortable Seat... Non-Vegeterians [ Like Me] Still Got "Areas Of Concern]

Freinds, the problem is we do not the exact rate of the meals. If I want a veg meal I quietly tell the pantry boy that I want 'standard meal.' which comprises on paratha, rice, 1 sabzi, dal, curd/sweet and small packaged water. These people force extra stuff into the meal and the price becomes higher. If the pantry boy is adamant with the higher price then talk to the pantry manager and let him know that you are aware of the actual price. If they don not budge tell them you will file a written complain to the railway board along with other passengers. IRTC catering complaint helpline no is -1800111321. Just make sure you do not fight with them. You may use powerful words but the tome should be soft and nice, because they do not want other passengers to know exactly what you are talking about.
