If you are traveling from Pune to Ratlam/Udaipur and you ticket is in waiting list, then check booking from Miraj Junction (MRJ) to your destination, there are more chances that you will get confirm ticket with less fare (due to dynamic fare).
e.g. For this Diwali Pune to Ratlam is Waiting List 22 (Fare - 1855) while that from Miraj is Available 162 (Fare - 1500).

Now a days Humsafars are getting good patronage.
Yes, but Dynamic pricing need to be removed from Humsafars.

One of the most important station of Central railways.From here,you can get buses of pmpml to different parts of pune city.Also,for going towards mumbai,Volvo and scania buses of MSRTC are available near pune railway station,walkable distance of 2 mins.Taxi is also avaible but they charge high.
Swargate bus stand is little bit far away but pmpml buses/auto are avaible.Swargate is one of the busiest and important bus station as from here many routes are avaible to go towards like kolhapur,nashik,nagpur,baramati,solapur etc.
Strict 5-6 TCs will be there for checking the ticket at pune
From pune station,two different routes gets diverged:- One towards miraj and one towards daund.
One of the best place for railfanning,though regularly guarded by rpfs so be careful.
Local EMU services for lonavala are avaible at pune.
Washrooms Restaurants are avaible at platform no 1.

If you want to reach Bhopal in time, then don't prefer this train. Instead go for Pune - Habibganj Hamsafar.
This Special always runs late.. and have no schedule if delayed..

What you say maybe true. But the two trains run on different days of the week, so the day of departure has to be convenient to the traveller. If you travel by Third AC, it is okay as both trains have it. But sleeper class is available only on 01663

As it is using Hawrah Duranto & Nagpur AC Express slot.. it will run on time till Bhusaval for sure..
While this special is delayed in it's Bhopal - Dharwad journey itself, so due to less TAT at Dharwad it will keep on rescheduling..

General coaches are a hell. Gets fill up to the brim (but still lesser crowd than Indrayani exp) from Pune itself. Worst even on Weekends or Festive time.
So if you wish to travel between Pune-Mumbai/Dadar , then book a 2S seat. The tickets are generally available even at morning on the journey date. But do book in advance if its weekend or Festive time like Shiv jayanti or Ganpati.
CC are generally available all the time and its CC has good cancellation rate.
If you have to go from Pune-Mumbai CST/Dadar , then don't opt afternoon Deccan. Instead Take this train as Deccan take hell 1hr excess to cover Pune-dadar stretch and gets heavily crowded in reserved coaches also.
