Now the side lower berth also has a charging point. All thanks to the new 2015 made LHB coaches.
A big relief to Rajdhani passengers. As in old LHB coaches, there was no charging point on Side lower berths due to large window.
Here 're some pics of Charging point on Side lower berth of 2A coach. And same is the scenario of 3A coaches.

yes ofcourse. Here is a pic of Mao Rajdhani itself.
Coach B4 of Mao raj. 2015 made...
But in my personal opinion, TVC Raj is far better than Mao raj, in terms of cleanliness and services.
Many Coaches of Mao Raj are 2015 marked, but are very dirty.

All the best.
I boarded it frm Vasai road to delhi NZM. and that day, it's loco failed after ratnagiri, so arrived vasai road ~5hrs delayed. So, that may be a factor.
But many of the window glasses were broken too. and as i said dirty toilets and doorways.
Let's see how will be your experience.

I read somewhere that MAO raj was alloted fresh LHB rake and TVC raj rake was old and thus After RSA, MAO raj got bad name due to old coaches of TVC.

can be so... As far as i have observed for all NR's newly LHBfied trains, Pune duranto, Mao Raj, BSP Raj are now running with mixed coaches and most of them not so good.
While TVC Raj, MAS Raj with mostly new n good coaches. Only 2-3 coaches are old.
And Lucknow AC Express*(former lucknow rajdhani) , got the new shinny LHB Rake and it continues to run with clean and new LHB coaches unlike other newly LHBfied trains of NR.
Ps.:other
...
more...
NR's trains are DBRT Raj, RNC Raj, Jammu Raj, SC Raj.
When I travelled in TVC raj, my coache A5 was 2010 made, very dirty and not so maintained coach, pests were there too. But other coaches were fine.

Day-3, breakfast s served after Kota: Upma and some sweet dish, bread-butter-jam, Tea/Coffee. Another veg option is Parathas.
PS: You can always ask for extra food items: extra bread or butter or extra upma/sheera. They will happily serve you more, after all

If you are a vegan then order Jain Food as it is prepared in the panty car itself, and it is served hot and fresh.
Here is a pic of first Day dinner after departing TVC

H Nizamuddin Trivandrm Rajdhani is an excellent Train. Its the Longest Route Rajdhani Train in India.
Train departs from H Nizamuddin at 11.00 am from Platform no 5 and then at around 12:45 they serve Soup before they serve lunch.
All I want to say is they have to serve Soup twice a day before lunch and Dinner but to my surprise they give a glass of Rasam which is similar to Sambhar in taste saying this is a south Indian Soup. Please dont have that as its not at all good in

taste and also its affecting resulting by loss motion.
Apart from that the train is too good but to my observation in normal train in washroom there is a fan over head of toilet but in Rajdhani its not there which is a negative point.

Cheaper version is Marusagar which has SL and general too. Rajdhani is not good for rail fanning as doors are closed and the windows are tinted. Usually they don't allow you to open the doors as pantry guys are busy stacking food near them. Marusagar any day.

For railfanning in konkan railway kerala sampark kranti express is best in the route. Has sleeper coaches, less stoppages , good punctuality and also less disturbance from unreserved passenger like the UP bihar routes.
