Not very great seats- except for the middle deck(Generally marked L while booking) which is as normal as other CC coaches the seating is good- but the top and lower decks and quite cramped
Consider yourself lucky if you get in the upper deck- the lower deck is not suitable of anyone above 5"7 as the ceiling almost touches your head- will be tough to even put the luggage in the rack
Not a train for heavy luggages- light luggage you can manage (Like Hand luggage of Planes)

main positive point about this train is speed and punctuality- both are excellent
To be kept as last option if no other tickets available- its worth spending a bit more and travel by shatabdi or to take CC of Lalbagh or Express

Upper is better than lower, taller people can at least stand. The order of preference is middle (regular CC) > upper > lower.

Book this train as a last option.
Travel light when travelling in this train.
NO luggage space if you get Lower or Upper. There is no luggage space below the seats as well. Not advisable for people above 5'9".
The seats are horrible, very small, goes downward |\. Mosquitoes follow the vendors who come in while selling.

Best for last minute travellers. . Speed and punctuality must be lauded. Less luggage is advisable due to cramped luggage rack. Eatables and drinking water are available throughout the journey.

Traveled in DD today from Chennai to KRP. train departed 10 mts late and arrived 15 mts late at KRP. We were in C2 105/106. Journey was comfortable. Good breakfast and other eatables available in the train and are reasonably priced. The train looks really majestic and was happy that I was also a passenger who traveled in this train. 4/5 ratings for this train

Seats though not as comfortable as Shatabdi but back to back like that of Shatabdi and way better than the face to face seating of Howrah Dhanbad Double Decker.. Also you get the foldable table in front of every seat.. Food available for purchase is not too good in taste.. Only vegetarian food available..
