I have travelled on this train in Feb 2015, in SL class. Right from LTT, the water supply in SL coaches was erratic, in my coach. I checked and found that there is a leak, so water is escaping. But there was water in other coaches. But by the next day, water had disappeared in all SL coaches. The toilets were stinking, basins were completely choked, so much so that I had a fight with cleaning staff at Rouirkela the next noon. They simply refused to clear up blockages and supply water, and we had to continue to HWH in this condition. After HWH, things gets worse. There is abolutely no food available in the train after HWH, so please stock up at HWH. I got dates and bread. The TT told me that there will be no food nor water till NJP the next day. I checked the bathrooms...

at MLDT early morning, all the bathrooms were choked, overflowing, and no water. Finally, I had to go to a bathroom in the AC coaches. Complaining to the TTs does not help, I did so at Rourkela station, after which I got into a fight with the cleaners at Rourkela

Best train to travel between bilaspur (bsp) to tata and ckp. Ac coaches are better than sleeper.

Unfortunately in 2AC there is no charging socket on Side Lower which makes difficult for laptop/Mobile charging.Only option to use it from same charging point available in lower birth bay.

Don't opt this train for end to end travel. Keep it as second last option (last option as legendary kolkata mail).
This trains takes too much time.
So if you want to travel from kolkata to mumbai,and all trains have seats available,then keep priorities as follows:
1. Duranto.
2.
...
more...
Jnaneswari deluxe.
3. Mumbai mail
4. Gitanjali
5. Weekly trains
6. Shalimar ltt
and last as 7. kolkata mail.
And if u are travelling from mumbai to kolkata,then keep priorities to book seats as :
1. Duranto
2. Jnaneswari
3. Gitanjali
4. Mumbai mail
5. Weekly trains
6. Ltt shalimar
7. kolkata mail.
I am saying bcoz i have travelled in all these trains from both ways in 3rd a.c and sleeper. And on the basis of crowd,cleanliness and avaibility,i have ranked them. So plz take it in consideration before doing reservations.

and that's bcoz bro if we consider end to end travel,samarsata is taking a much longer route as compared to jnaneswari deluxe. Even though both these trains shares rake,still i'll go for jnaneswari as it would take less travel time with less fare.

Train originates from Mumbai CST.

Correct announcement. This train is known by the name of Mumbai mail ( 12321 )in the up direction & Kolkata mail (12322 )in the down direction.

Oh !! Then i think it's wrong only because either they should have announced it (12322) as Mumbai - Howrah mail or simply Kolkata mail .Even i have heard Shipra express being announced by it's old no.19306 instead of it's new one 22911at MGS.

Instead they should go for Shaktipunj exp which is more reliable than this one especially in terms of punctuality.

Unpredictable train...
Some times running with right time, and reaching destination by 3~4 hours delay or some times start with delay by 15~20 hours at CSTM

If you have to travel from mumbai to kolkata or vice versa, then don't go for this train. The name "imperial" is now faded away. Instead once try the other mail (via nagpur mail).
This imperial train's punctuality is bit doubtful. Sometime it arrives with just 20-30 min but many days it arrive nearly 4-5 hrs delay. So if having a link or connected journey, then do keep a buffer of atleast 6-7 hrs.
Ticket availability is very poor. End to End people generally keep it as a last option but for people
...

of dhanbad, asansol and gaya region, its the 1st and foremost option to travel to mumbai.
But Food is good and way better as compared to other trains of same sector like gitanjali and azad hind.

Phone charging is available. Usually, I never fight for plug though there is only one plug for 4 persons in a coach. Whoever wins oral fight, he puts charger for whole day.
