It will never travel as per schedule. Every time it leaves with 30 minutes delay from Vijayawada and continue the delay till the end. Even we also don't know why this train halts every time at secunderabad outer for 15 to 20 minutes

Travelled on 7-2-2018 from BZA to SC in 12705 ice, the train reached BZA with delay of 48min which got extended to 1hr20min at final destination i.e SC.what made even worse and frustrating was even with more than one hour delay it was made to halt at SC outer at 22:51 for about 20mins to enter SC. It gets delayed regularly, with Avg 20mins late.

From BZA, 12795 ICE is better than this. It will reach with out any delay. Everyday this 12705 ICE will be late for 1 hour by the time it reaches SC.

Actually while onward journey, Morning i was to board BZA intercity but couldn't reach station on time so boarded krishna Exp. For return i booked in advance for 12705 because i thought it reaches sc earlier than BZA(believed tt of 12705). But 12705 departed Bza before 12795 and reached SC after 12795.

I travelled by this train from Secunderabad to Warangal on October 4,2017. I travelled in AC chair car. I was allotted a window seat when I booked the ticket through IRCTC. But to my surprise it was an aisle seat in the chair car coach. IRCTC should check the seat allottment w.r.t the coach being allotted. But luckily as the window seat beside my seat was not booked, I shifted to that seat. The train started bang on time at 7:40 AM from Secunderabad. The coach was overall very neat, neat compartment and neat toilets. The AC was at top notch, very comfortable for me as it was vey sultry and humid in Hyd that day. But after the train started, within 30 minutes, all my co-passengers were closing the AC vents as they were feeling cold. I don't understand, if people can't bear AC even for 30 minutes, why...
do they travel in AC coaches. The speed of the train was okay. Sometimes it ran at MPS and sometimes it made unscheduled halts. The catering was good too and vendors came regularly. The onboard house keeping staff were cleaning the coach and collecting garbage very well at regular intervals. This train is even very good for rail fanning. It was overtaken by SBC-NZM Raj at Janagaon station. I spotted quite a lot of trains that day. Some of them were VSKP-SC garib rath, cocanada, narayanadri, gauthami, karnataka Sk . Most of the trains were running late when compared to their actual schedule because it was raining heavily in Hyd that day. Charging plugs were available, but not sufficient for all passengers. So it is better to carry a power bank. The train reached Warangal at 10:40 AM, around 40 minutes delayed. This delay is experienced almost everyday. Overall it was a 3 hour journey. Overall it was a good experience travelling by this train. People with heavy luggage can find problems as the AC chair car cannot accommodate much luggage. I would suggest that it is better to travel to Warangal by AC busses as they take almost 2.5-3 hours, and are less costly. It is even better to travel by Telangana Express in Sleeper class from Secunderabad to Kazipet if people are not very particularto travel by AC class. Tickets are mostly available in current booking quota.
