It was a four hour journey and it was pleasant. The train was having pantry service and the food was average. You can have light snacks. But it has many stoppages before Kharagpur which makes you irritated but overall journey was good.

On time departure and arrival, very good for official trips, perfectly timed for official visitors The train can be a lot cleaner. The choice of food should increase. The toilets need a lot of makeover. Food needs to be purchased from on - board catering staff.
