This bus has lot of stops for loading and unloading the cargo it is indeed a Luggage carrier instead of passenger carrier. so if you have enough patience you can take a ride.
Initial 3 hrs they stopped many times . But later managed and with no stop reached on time. Though we traveled with non AC it is good give FAN facility at all seat.
The bus was poorly maintained, nothing working nor was bedding provided, which I expected being a sleeper bus. Firstly, The bus started from a different location than what was written on the ticket, and the person wasnt very friendly while explaining the same, instead when I arrived to the new location, he was blaming me for being late. Secondly, the bus stopped every 10 mins to passengers and sometimes would stop for 30-40 mins to pickup goods, and being a passenger bus, I think its illegal.
