Left and reached on time and very clean train


The train departed on time at 1830 hours and reached New Delhi next day almost 10 minutes before time. As soon as the train started we were served soup and bread-sticks along with a bottle of water and a tetra pack of Frooti. The dinner comprised of chicken curry, rice, rotis, dal, gulab jamun and curd. During breakfast next morning we were served toast, omelet, preserves and tea/coffee. The service was exemplary and food was very good. The price was included in the ticket and we only gave tips to the cleaners and the person who served us meals. The toilets were very clean and the janitor would clean the toilet after every 2 - 3 uses. Bedding and pillows were provided. There were plug points for charging your phone or laptop. Overall, a good experience and one of the better trains to travel to New Delhi.

A scenic route


When you do not get Tatkal tickets you get Premium Tatkal tickets. I got the same a day before travelling. Thankfully I got. The journey was good. Same food. Similar to Duronto. 12301 Rajdhani is via Gaya. A scenic route. The train leaves at 4.55pm from Howrah and next day at 10am you are in NDLS. Though this was around 30 minutes late. This was January, 2015. Remember all North India bound trains suffer along this time due to heavy fog. I was lucky that way. :)

Had a good comfortable travel and amazing view


Boarded the train in the afternoon but travelled with lots of luggage as I was on transfer in the fag end of my working professional career. Which was not desirable but had to do it out of compulsion. Had a major operation but had to travel out of my comfort zone. Some of the views were truly amazing but the food was awesome the comfort very good in first A/c compartment with my life partner. Only that the compartment was the last compartment and always was out of any platform and rocked like mad when the train travelled at fast speed. No one disturbed, food was clean hygienic wash rooms very neat and clean. The refreshments were quite good for vegetarian people. Bedding provided. The Station of our Rajdhani New Delhi was very disappointing as we had to climb stairs which were really very high and had to walk lots about for 15 min. I almost got lost in the parking lot with the coolies and the people who came to help us as drivers etc. DO NOT: Please do not tryst people at Delhi they are not trust worthy I cannot trust any auto driver or taxi driver be careful of your belongings and they do not keep their word or promise. They mention of 400 rs as fare but loot you of Rs 600 this is common in Delhi auto fares are exorbitant if you can reach in 70 rs they overcharge you for 100 rs and refusal of passengers is rampant. Visit Chattarpur Katayani Mata mandir, Kutub Minar, India Gate Dilli Haat, Haus Village. You could visit all markets likeINA (Expensive) sarojini nagar market(OK), karol bagh. This is the best market i loved the stuff here at Karol Bagh both on the foot path and the branded shops are best. But you could travel by auto or metro. Metro are neat clean and they are efficient. Autos are v v costly. You could go to Gurgaon and Noida use the metro but try to do some google study before you leave. Be careful of your money and your belongings you may not get to sit its quite crowded but still okay. Food and living in Delhi is exhorbitant so are the room rents. Try to stay at Oyo rooms books them only and they are good.

A good experience


The travel experience with my family is most enjoyable with a short time travelling, the train run fast like rajdhani. It has 5 stations, such as asansol, kanpur, allahabad,howrah, and new delhi etc. The train arrived with its right time of arrival time. Finally the journey with my family is a good experience.
