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.

While departing from Howrah , the rear end SLR is always a Military personal bogie. No civilian is allowed to board this SLR. Door is always closed from inside and you have to tell at window that "I am a defence personal.Open it" Then only they open the door or else they will ask you to board the adjacent General compartment.
This tip will be very beneficial for Defence personals/Ex-defence personals and their wards who don't wish to travel in the ridiculous crowd of General compartments.
PS: There may be a chance that

the Military SLR may be in the ahead or rear portion, but it will be definitely present either at rear side or front side. So please before boarding do check the proper position. During my last journey from Howrah , it was at rear end.

Some of the 3rd AC coaches are newly made (Post 2010 but still maintenance wise very poor) , so even on aisle side charging sockets are present.
But its all your luck because not all the 3A coaches are new. Old ones still don't have charging sockets on aisle side.

Mine was Feb 2010 made. The interiors were extremely good furnished as compared to exterior but maintenance was very very poor. AC vent was broken and seats were dusty as if from decades its been not used.
SER gets new coaches sometimes but don't know what happens to them when it comes to cleanliness and maintenance.

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.

east coast is not the dirtiest train of SER..the dirtiest train of SER is coromandal/chennai mail...East coast is much better than these two trains in regards of cleanliness and hygiene.......
