The train is on time. Clean compartment. Working power plug for charging laptop and cell phones. Nice food and clean Railway Station. Rates of coolies were very reasonable. A/c in the train was working fine and coach staff are very helpful. I recommend travelling in train, since it's a comfortable journey. Overall, everything is good.

I boarded from New Delhi to Varanasi Junction via Swatantrta Express at 8.35 pm from NDLS. Many people who did not had their reservation were also boarding the train and were occupying our reserved seats.

Secondly, the train was not clean at all and the food was also not good in taste and was also cold.

This train is one of the best train to reach Varanasi, express train most of the time it reaches on time, will drop you at 8 am in the morning. You can directly reach the temple for darshan, can take either rikshaw or an auto rikshaw, both are easily available.
