The cleaning of this train is ultimate. They have completely overhauled the cleanliness over the last one year. On-board house keeping facility is available on this train. Toilets are frequently cleaned by on-board staff in addition to the contract cleaning at Solapur station. Soaps, hand wash is available at toilets. Floors inside the coach also cleaned at time to time. Perfumes are sprayed at regular intervals. To be short, inside compartments will make you feel at genuine 3-star hotel. 2AC coaches are older look than 3AC coaches. Hence prefer 3AC over 2AC while booking.

Had travelled in this train almost a year back from cbe till pune. The train arrived late from ltt and after just a 2 hr wait in the pf departed late from cbe. The 2 hrs were used to clean the coaches. Cleaning was very ordinary. Cant blame them. The buffer time at cbe is extremely less.
There was no onboard housekeeping in the train during that time for sleeper

Agreed... In return 11014 train, the cleaning is very ordinary because of less buffer time. I am also not sure about on board housekeeping for SL coach even now also. But, if the railways can change the TT of this train by providing an additional rake, it will be beneficial for passengers, which is more unlikely though.

Earlier when the departure from cbe was at 5 am, there was a buffer rake because the train that arrived at cbe at 7am only left next day at 5am so almost 20 hrs buffer time for maintenance,cleanliness also. After departure changed to 8am from cbe, the rake that arrives in the morning from ltt leaves again within 2 hours. Also its a logistical nightmare for the ac coach staff since they have to carry lots of extra bedrolls etc from ltt itself since nothing is loaded from cbe
