Providing 2 water bottles on day 1 itself is a very good practice, as later on 2nd day passengers won't have to run after pantry staffs & ultimately make their journey experience bitter.

If pantry guys can supply second day's coffee, what's the problem in supplying water bottles too? It's absurd practice to dump everything on passengers on day one itself, where will they store it?

Food available on board is really good. This train was surprisingly a good experience like Rajdhani's . I think this change has come after the LHB transformation ,
even in the sleeper coach every coach has staff member's . The train has on board cleaning staff . There is no food sold on the train though ,
so if you need extra food you'll have to buy it off the few stops it make on route . The train journey was very smooth and fast . All coaches and toilets are

Newspaper is given to all irrespective of weather you have paid for meals or not .

Passengers traveling in the SLEEPER coaches have to be cautious b/w HABIBGANJ & ITARSI. Though the TT & RPF persons onboard closes all the coach doors, due to negligence of some passengers they are left open and the chances of looters entering into train between these two stations are high, as these stations are wide open and crossed in the mid night, provides great instance to perform loot and escape into the dark. You know what to do. BE CAUTIOUS, TRAVEL SAFE. --Happy journey--

It runs non stop between Bhopal and Nagpur right?. Then how does it become a safety concern?. Do you mean slowing down before and picking up speed after each junction?.

Avoid this train if you are a cleanliness freak, and like to have food on time. They will give 2 bottles of water as soon as you board. Food is cold and will be served early.
bathrooms have no handwash, is dirty. Bed linens dirty as well. Avoid if you can.

If you are a cleanliness freak I think you would have to avoid IR as a whole. The word doesn't exist in IR's dictionary. Basically we Indians don't give much importance to hygiene or cleanliness.

Absolutely 10 on 10. My family won't travel in train but me alone for the same reason. For a rail-fan like me it is unfortunate.
