Red bus showed me the 9 no. seat, which is lower, but in the bus it was upper. Very bad and wrong information shared by red bus. Although the staff was arrogant, keeping quiet was the only solution as RED bus contact numbers at that moment also proved to be useless. In future do not book the bus from red bus.
14.5 hrs taken to complte the journey which is max worst case 12hrs only

Bus driver put off ac by regular intervals and some passengers are sleeping in the lobby.bus quality was poor .I suggest to prefer reputable travels like purple and khurana
