Just after/during departure of train from Pune, some men will come to take order for dinner. Veg thali cost will be 130 rs. Please DON'T order that. He will claim that he is pantry guy but he/they is/are not. The food will be 2 roti, rice, dal & so called mix veg with potato (that also without peeled) in majority and a pickle & salt sachet. He will give you your order within around 15 mins, that also totally cold. You will regret paying 130 after just one bite. The pantry guys come to take order some where just before Daund and after Daund they provide food. Their rate of thali is 120 rs containing the standard meal across IR network. Though the food is not that good but better than those outside party's. Caterer is 'Meals on Wheels'. The rate for B/Fs are as per IRCTC menu along with...

40 rs veg b/f also which contain some 2-3 potato finger chips and some boiled peas. B/F of this train is good. Worth trying.

Do not expect a clean coach, I travelled on 19th Jan 2019 from SEG to Pune and found the following
1) Old bedding not collected by coach attendant
2) Only bedsheets and Pillow cover handed over to us when we demanded for fresh bedding
3) No place to keep the old bedding since all berth were captured by passengers and passengers started placing the

Book from Champa to avail GNWL ...for journey from Bilaspur onward towards Pune ..GNWL has very high quota and the chart prepares one night before the journey ...RLWL is very hard to confirm in this train ...ex: for NGP to PUNE ( 3ac RLWL ticket cost ) 1200 ..while if you book from Champa ( 3ac GNWL cost 1500) , but GNWL ticket confirmation chances very very high ....

The interiors as well as exteriors of coaches are also dirty / unclean / paints peeled off conditions / rusty, etc. I have seen this train many many times at Pune and all the rakes used for this train are unfortunately in bad shape.

Its only for 3rd a.c
If you get the last seat or the first seat of 3rd a.c coach i.e seat no. 7,8,63 or 64, then i assure you that your night time sleep will be not good.
Personal experience sharing, i got 63 number seat of B2 coach. As there is no curtain and plus the cabin glass door is transparent from top which allows the light from tube-light which is near the door to come inside. This doesnt allows darkness while sleeping at these seats where else the rest of

the whole passengers sleep peacefully in darkness.
I request the IR to atleast put curtains on the cabin doors or attach curtains just on the last/first bay side seats i.e 7,8,63,64.

I traveled in SL between Kopargaon and HWH when the train used to be late due to Maoist fear(World's largest democracy scared of Maoists. Lol). Maybe in 2010,2011 or 2012. Cant remember the exact year. Worst train regarding cleanliness. Worst gutka spitting and non toilet flushing crowd. Nightmare of a journey.

I remember travelling in sleeper in july 2012 from pune to kharagpur. At that time it was good and clean. But as it passed Nagpur, from chattisgarh till tatanagar, it was heavily crowded due to WL passengers, hawkers and general ticket holders. That was a nightmare and from that day onwards i always prefer this train's a.c class.
