1. PA system of almost all the coaches unserviceable.(Carry print out of time table with you , it will help you to monitor the stations, and running status of train)
2. Serving trays bulging out due to prolonged use, needs replacement. (Please use news papers on your laps / tables else cracked and bulging out trays will spoil ur clothes (and moods))
3. Spoons and cups are washed in a un-hygienic way in the coach itself.(Try to wash spoons yourself before use and ask for disposable cups from waiters).
Ice creams are served after much delay of meals (by the time pax get sleeping specially after dinner) and most of the pax say NO. ( Do not say NO as they are making money out of it by selling to platform vendors at low less rates< better you keep with you and ask for your colleagues if they require..( I am always interesting in it for ice creams :))
5. Condition of liquid soap is very poor. It is either missing or cheap one. ( Carry personal small soap with you) .
6. If you got upper birth , then there are chances of bitter experience of cold breezes from vents of AC panels. In night time it is too cool and causes trouble...( Better to keep additional clothing as no one will listen you in night time to adjust the AC ( however you can go and switch OFF the COMPRESSOR1 and COMPRESOR2 CBs in AC pannels to make yourself comfortable...(switching OFF anything in that panel will not cause any negative results ..)
7.In most of the curtains well-crow is out of order.(please carry safety pins as a alternative )
8. In ACII/ACIII there are 6/8 pax depending on only 02 electrical outlets for 40+hrs journey which is less. ( Please carry multi-plug for seamless use of outlets ( be cautious do not use heavy loads use only mobile or laptops in this case)
9. Attendant will ask for bed sheets , blankets and towels by saying " SIR AGLA STATION TO AB DELHI HAI ..." do not give all these... as train may get delayed due to unforeseen reason and then you will not get it back ...
10. Attendant and waiters are seen taking money to park extra loads like steel trunks, bulky bags, cartoons etc ... It is comfortable to individual but can prove fatal in case of emergencies. In case of any incident/accident they will block the ways/subways and you can be trapped inside to face consequences. Believe me I faced similar situation in 1994 while traveling from Bangalore to NDSL in KK express. Try to report the matter to TTE for keeping ways/sbways clear all the times.

11. Now a days military/paramilitary personnel are observed smoking inside the toilets of Rajdhani Trains... Even I noticed they were drinking in side the coaches. ( I do not have any tip in this regard that how to stop them as complaining against then is not fruitful) .

It is better to avoid 'Travelling by this Train, instead of suffer the hardship even after paying such a high Fare....."

Great and correct observations. Faced the same difficulties every time I travel between NDLS and KIR.
