The train is outstanding, especially the schedule and speed maintained throughout. The only crying shame is when it is on the home stretch to Secunderabad station. As soon as the train approaches Lingampally or just prior, it starts being signalled down and forced to stop at every MMTS station along the way. For crying out loud this is a Duronto! Do railway authorities in SCR and Secunderabad division have no shame! They handle less than a tenth of the traffic that Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata and Chennai metros handle. Yet they can't manage smooth passage to a platform at Secunderabad to a train of this stature. The train is delayed by more than one hour to satiate a fool (GM or similar rank) who lacks imagination and the drive to improve the timing of trains approaching Secunderabad. What is even more dismal is trains from SCR division are forced to undergo the same treatment when they have better prestige at other locations. Case in point Falaknuma Express. When will Secunderabad division and the pathetic condition of Secunderabad Railway station as a whole change?
It would equally nice of you, if you could introduce the facility of knowing the people what is the exact menu that will be served to the passengers and time (approx) / station nearby. This is applicable to all the trains (Duranot / Rajadhani / Shatabdi Exp)

For example, Secunderabad - LTT Duranto Exp, it is rarely the water bottle is supplied and that to if at all by the time Vikarabad / Tandur is approached. This is nothing but to watch the passengers go to sleep and then avoid issue of water bottles. Secondly, I was told that the issue of fruit juice has been suspended post boarding of the train. Next day morning and till the time the train reaches LTT, what is the menu and where and what items will be delivered should be notified.

Last month when my daughter-in-law was travelling, she was told that the coffee is finished. How can the coffee over when no ONE in the bogie was given. Secondly, this was complained on cell number 97013 60702, within next 10 minutes coffee was served. Thirdly we were also told on one occasion that the morning only TEA will be served and NOT the coffee. As there are thousands of passengers who do not drink tea, what should they do. Is this the decision of the IR or the contractors.

It is better IR / IRTC send their employees in the guise of a passenger and check how the malpractices are being done

As you have requested - Please help us to serve you better, I am narrating my own experience.
