Very Risky to Book Tickets In Sleeper with RAC 50 or Above ....
Very less chances of confirmation.....Even in off season...so better to go for Tatkal

Train takes the Howrah Barddhaman Main line route due to congestion in the Chord by Mumbai Mail and Darjeeling Mail, which it follows closely upto Malda Town with Padatik Express just behind. After New Bongaigaon Karmabhoomi Express takes the route via Goalpara Town - Dudhnoi and not Rangiya as mentioned in the time table..

Please be extremely careful of your luggage when you are nearing MLDT, rampant chain pulling, train stops frequently in complete darkness, lots of people enter SL coaches to help these chain - pullers get their luggage out.

the train was right time, even before time, all the way to New Bongaigaon . But please note, there is rampart chain pulling before and after MLDT, train stops frequently in the wee hours.

Breakfast at Visakhapatnam(arrives 30-40 min late generally)I suggest steaming idly because remaing food items can be preserved an can be the previous day's preparation.Idy is perishable item so they can't serve previous night's Idly and take only hot Sambar if not adjust with Pickle or Curry leaf powder which are available on platform.Never take Yellow rice(tiger rice) for breakfast because there's a probability that it's previous night's rice.
For lunch there is'nt much difficulty. You can have it in BZA(Vijayawada).There are plenty of options.If you want to get down at BZA and board another train you can have lunch at comosum in buffer time.Try tasty Onion Samosa after lunch if you wish.

For those those who want to travel upto Bhubaneswar but unable to get confirmed ticket, book till Cuttack as CTC comes in GNWL quota while BBS comes in PQWL quota.

Food idea for those who travel in this train from Hyderabad/Secunderabad to howrah.
1st day:
For lunch- Parcel good cheap food from Hyderabad/Secunderabad before boarding the train. Snacks and cold drinks are available throughout the route.
For evening snacks- Alight at BZA and buy some bananas or snacks from station. Train halts here for long time as it arrives sometimes before time.
For

dinner, the orders are taken between BZA-EE by a guy wearing irctc catering t-shirt and food is loaded from RJY. It contains three options-Biryani, roti-sabji and idli-sambhar. All of three are cold.
Instead purchase the same food from platform which will bit cheaper and hot. The train halts at RJY for about nearly 7-10 min which is enough to purchase food from pf.
2nd day:
For Breakfast- Buy food from KUR and fill your tummy or else wait. Here after KUR, a person with meals-on-wheel t-shirt comes and asks for breakfast order. Option are-Idli sambhar and bread cutlet. Only Veg available. Food is given either after BBS or after CTC. Food is good and in ample quantity.
For lunch- After BLS a person comes and asks for lunch order. Food is loaded at KGP. If not interested in heavy lunch, then at KGP quickly deboard and buy hot poori-bhaji. But be careful. Train hardly halts for 2-3 min (personal experience).
Through out the journey local vendors board and sell food items.
Like between KUR-HWH, "jhaalmoori" and "garam bhoobni" and many other things are sold which are yes, unhygienic and tasty.
PS: I am telling this all for 2A and 3A class. For SL, i have no idea.
