Traveleed some time ago in 2016 from MAS to WL
Punctuality:- Not good on both sides (Avg Delay may be 1 to 1.30 Hrs)
Food:- Just OK (No PC but vendors will be there through out journey as you can think this as plus point as this train have more halts.)
Cleanliness:- Don't think much (in A/c also.) including Toilets.

Runs with HCPV for Mail transportation between states. Overall train cleanliness is average. If you are travelling from a station which is far away from train's Source station, do not expect water from taps. Washrooms do not have water throughout the journey in Delhi NCR to NR - SVDK region. Some coaches have only Indian-style W/C & some coaches have only 1 Western-style W/C.
Regarding Safety. As the train passes through Delhi-NCR region at night time, please keep your belongings & luggage under tight security yourself. As I have myself observed, and as some IRI memeber also suggested, train is not safe to travel between Faridabad New Town to Shakurbasti (Delhi - NCR Outskirt to Outskirt).

than half of the Sleeper coaches do not have Chains to stop train during emergency in each block of seat/sleep arrangement. Please be careful. *Another thing. It is very hard to find GRP Security force people on board. Even a single security person is very rare to find.
Regarding Punctuality now. Train does not get good priority in the same section where stealings happen. Runs pretty slow on Non-stopping station outers especially between Palwal & NZM. Even 30 minute delay upto Faridabad can get converted upto 1.5 hrs delay by the time you depart NDLS. Expect delays in Jakhal - Ludhiana section because this is single line section and this train may be made to wait for passenger crossing too.
In brief :
Punctuality : 4/5
Safety : 3.5/5
Cleanliness : 4/5
Water availability : 2/5
Tkt availability : 3.8/5 (Maximum bookings are done from Andhra/TN side)
** Additional Info : Running with one extra AC 3 TIER Coach BE 1.
