It has total 3 no of rakes, but all are not in same composition and you may get a different one from the one which is updated here at the time of boarding. Specifically one rake is in the reverse coach composition.

If you are traveling from Tatanagar to New Delhi and getting waiting list from Tata then book tickets from Bhadrak as it comes under GNWL and you can get confirm tickets or in case of waiting, it would have high chances of confirmation. Change the boarding point accordingly

Today's dinner served in Bhubaneswar - New Delhi Rajdhani Express (via TATA - BKSC)
Pic 01 : Chicken meal
Pic 02 : Tomato soup
Food quality is awesome & if required extra meal too is given.
& cooling is too excellent in coach.
My aunt boarded from Kharagpur.Jn & lunch was served as soon as train past Kalaikunda, lunch had option of either Paneer subzi or Chicken meal.
Overall this train improved a lot from past & is one of the best currently.

Most of Rajdhanis/Durontos & Shatabdi Express menus are same but may vary according to some popular demands or regional specialities.
Eg : Most of Bengal bound Rajdhanis have Rassogollas in place of conventional Gulab Jamuns many times!

I think food quality depends on the base kitchen and the caterers such as IRCTC, Meals on wheels etc... coz in the travel tip for 22812 (possibly) once i found a person blaming the food quality and catering services...what is ur opinion ??

This train has improved considerably in the past 6 months. I travelled on 23rd June and will travel again on 4th August.
>Cleanliness of the coaches are par excellence. As soon as you board the coach from NDLS, the coach smells of pleasant room freshner and is very very clean.
>As sson as it departs from NDLS at 17:05, you will be provided snacks which include vegetable sandwich, patties and other stuff. It's strange that the coach attendants come to ask you about your choice of food, although you have mentioned
it while booking the ticket.
>Dinner was not very good I'd say. The veg dish was average, but the dal was not upto the mark. All in all the food was OK.
> After dinner you will be served ice cream. I thought that it would be some cheap local brand ice cream, but to my astonishment it was a Barista ice cream, which is a premium brand.
>And by the way, they give you one water bottle as soon as you board. You are entitled to 2. Be sure to ask for the 2nd one. If you ask for a 2nd one the same night of the journey, they'll say that it'll be provided the next day. Don't listen to all that bullshit. These coach attendants are really cunning people. Any unclaimed water bottle is sold by them for cheap prices. It's your money. Claim what is rightfully yours.
>I had the upper berth and so I thought I'd have to face a lot of inconvenience because the ac vents are very close to the berth. But in fact, the ac is turned down at night time, so the passengers don't freeze to death. I actually didn't need the bedsheet to cover up anymore because after a while, it got sort of hot.
>After about 6am, the morning tea is served. If you are asleep, the attendant wakes you up. A word of advice to all passengers: Since you are all travelling together, please learn to adjust and co-operate. There are routine fights early in the morning in almost every sleeper train I've travelled in because the lower berth passenger doesn't want to wake up, and the passengers who have woken up to sit and have the breakfast that has arrived. There was a fight in our our coach because of this reason. Please remember that the train is not your home. You can wake up in the noon if you want at home, but please not on the train. Other passengers have paid for their seat too and you should learn to adjust for just 1 day. It's not that hard believe me. In fact if you wake up early, you can enjoy the scenic beauty of the Gurpa-Gujhandi ghats!
>Lunch is served after KGP if I can remember correctly. It was better than the previous nights dinner. But the sweet dish was some kind of sugar fruit jelly instead of ice cream which was frankly pretty bad.
>Finally the afternoon tea and snacks are served at around 3:30pm.
>The coach attendants come to ask for tips before reaching Bhubaneswar. I don't want to generalize, but the coach attendants in my coach were very bad at service. They hesitated if you asked for the extra water bottle, which you should get. These people don't deserve tips because they sell all leftover tea bags, sugar satchets and even milk powder to platform vendors. These people are paid a salary and IRCTC doesn't encourage tipping. Still, I gave Rs.20.
So, overall it was great journey. The scenic beauty while passing through the ghats of Jharkhand during monsoon was mind blowing.

Agree! One must adjust during journeys but one thing is clear new age youngsters are seldom interested in sightseeing during rail journey, instead they're busy glued into their gadgets...
I give tips to janitors rather than those rude coach attendant/pantry guys.
Overall nice & exhaustive tip you've provided.

True, these days people stay on their phones during a trip, even when there is no signal busy playing games. If they would just draw the curtains and look outside, I bet they will never look back to their phones again. The scenes were so beautiful. And yes, the coach attendants treat the janitor/sweeper very poorly. That's why, the janitor comes separately (not with the attendants) and he asks very politely for tips. Seeing as the coach was spotlessly clean even though the train was nearing the end of the journey, I happily gave him tips.

yes you are right. But till last year this train and its brother (bbs (adra) rajdhani) were in terrible condition. I was shocked this time when i travelled in the BBS rajdhani via adra this month. I didnt got the chance to taste the lunch as i deboarded at balasore but still i was very satisfied and happy to see the cleanliness and maintenance.
