No sleeper facility and got disturbed sleep because of passengers being called instead of silently waking them up.
It was a horrible experience. I was travelling with my 8 years old kid and it was his first travel in bus. But instead of having a great experience he had a nightmare. When we reached Vardhman, our bus broke down and we have ro halt in the dhaba for 4 hours!!! Due to the breakdown we had to wait in the heat outside and my kid had ended up with body allergy for which he is still under medication. By gods grace it was a dhaba where the problem happened. But if it would have been a roadside then god only knows how we could have waited there for the new bus from Kolkata. Thanks a lot for such an experience.
They use this Bus as Truck. there departure time was 8:30 PM and they started at 10PM reached Ranchi at 9AM. they stops there Bus at any location without any communication more than 1 hrs. I summer its really pathetic.
