4.Train never rich on time to destination the station-(5 to 6) hours late.

Mr. Shiv Kumar Mishra when i travel by this its reached Chhapra at 01:30 a.m. where as actual arrival timing is 18:35 that means 7hrs 05mins late. Its pathetic(its starts delaying after Varanasi Drastically).

The Official Indian Railway site shows that the train reach Chhapra at 18:35 but practically its different. Its actually reach at 01:30 a.m. This is my personal experience.

I agree. Passengers consider the train compartments as dust bins. Watrr bottles, peanut shells, chocolate wrappers are all thrown in the seating areas instead of dustbins. If this part of train is untidy, its passengers who makes such situations.

st division provides bed sheets in cover so that the same can be used as garbage bags. Passengers tend to throw them under the srats or fold them and keep them in the seat pockets

There is no on board Housekeeping in this train may be reason of dirtiness,you can also condition of the toilet that is not up to the mark. This section is pathetic and this my worst travelling experience.

Its the Duty of the passengers to keep the surrounding clean.But i have seen people throwing garbage here and there in the compartment. Its sounds that i am travelling in general class instead of AC III Tier. Is anyone can explain reason behind this condition in this section.

I travelled twice by this, find pathetic Train. Indian railway mean least Punctual, dirty compartment,dirty platform,dirty waiting hall and dirty sanitation. The main problem in Indian Railway is the Maintainance of their belonging. Hope so condition will improve in near future after so much increase in fare.

Very dangerous train. Specially stay away from General coaches. Its always heavily excessively crowded. Getting inside a tedious task.
And also if you want to travel in SL, then book minimum 3-3.5 months in advance.
And during summers and festives, forget about confirmed seats.
And if you have to travel and you believe in "service as per money", then i would

say,opt for some other train. 72 people coach carries nearly 100-110 people.

Wohi pareshani hai na mishra ji. Ek matra train hai, iss wajah surat ke aas paas basne wala pura bihar-poorvi u.p isi train mein safar karta hai.
Tabhi toh na, jo khud ko VIP samajhte hain, wo iss train mein na safar kare.
