Is this train reliable during monsoon? Does it get stuck or delay in departure due to heavy rains?? Next week I am planning to go to Pune for work then return same day evening any time after 5 PM, that too on a weekday. I might prefer this one or Indrayani express as both will reach Pune before 10 am and I can start my work then. If I reserve a seat in AC CC coach and board from CST itself, do I have to worry about ticketless passengers occupying reserved coaches, taking my seat or asking me to vacate my seat for them? Same question when returning same day in the evening after 5 PM from Pune.

read a lot in news about ticketless passengers occupying reserved coaches being rampant in trains which are not Shatabdi or Rajdhani, even TTEs and RPFs show helplessness and disappear.
Bindas. Be least bothered about the timings and schedule. Intercity is one of the best train between Mumbai and Pune which maintains its schedule anytime and every time. Only in extreme circumstances it gets delayed. Indrayani also runs on time but since it goes all the way till Solapur many unreserved passengers board in 2S before hand which sometimes leads to fight too scene which is not common in Intercity. And CC is always best option. Happy Journey.
Unless there is water logging en-route (in which case all the trains are bound to get delayed), this train will maintain its schedule. Also, do not worry about the ticketless passengers occupying your seat in AC Chair Car coach. That only happens in 2S (Second Sitting) coach. However, if you're not boarding the train from the originating station itself, then MST pass holders might occupy your seat. No worries at all if you're boarding from the starting station itself.
