You will get NOTHING between Kendujhargarh-Jakhapura. Even after Jakhpura the train runs like a non stop superfast, thus catering facility is very very limited due to non-connectivity of coaches. Better would be if you take ample amount of water and light snacks before boarding the train. At Jakhapura station, it generally gets the Pf 1, thus you may get snacks from there like chip-biscuits.
This train runs like a fast passenger between Kendujhargarh-Jakhapura, and then like a Superfast between Jakhapura-Cuttack, but after that it runs like a MEMU train between Cuttack-Bhubaneswar, halting at nearly all stations and crossings. Still all in all it maintain its schedule and punctuality throughout the year.

Even though this station bears the name of the town, still its not much preferred by keonjhar localities. They prefer the Naranpur station more due to transportation feasibility.
Generally two trains connect this district HQ with Bhubaneswar- BBS Fast Passenger and Barbil intercity- both of which halts at Naranpur.
So if you have to go to Cuttack-Bhubaneswar, and wish to take the Morning fast passenger, then at morning hours the Auto wallas will drop you at Naranpur station. More crowd boards both these intercity type trains from Naranpur station, not from Keonjhargarh station (Kendujhargarh).
Still ample amount of auto will be found at the arrival of these trains.
D3 Coach is reserved for Ladies.
All other 8 general coaches are Second Seating (Chair Car) coaches.
An okayish train to travel from New Delhi to Haridwar. Although most people prefer the Jan-Shatabdi due to its afternoon departure. For availing the Shatabdi, you might have to stay the night at Delhi or have to be a local resident.
The train usually departs from PF 16 of New Delhi Railway Station. During my trip, the rake was shunted at New Delhi at 6:35 am., just 10 minutes before scheduled departure. Thus, there was total chaos at the gates of each coach. Still, we managed somehow. This situation might arise anyday with anyone.
The food served is extremely good throughout. Starting from the welcome drink to the breakfast, everything is excellent. The toilets are a bit dirty though.
The punctuality of the train is excellent considering it gets the highest priority throughout the entire route. The train has a loco reversal at Saharanpur, and thus halts over there for a long time. You may get down, buy some snacks from the stalls on the platform. Try not to go near the locomotive, because the smoke from the Generator Van is extremely harmful (myself experienced it during my trip).
For getting down at Haridwar, get up from your seat and proceed towards the gate few minutes before only, as there will be rush on the aisle and no one will give you any space to keep your luggage. The train usually halts at PF 1 at Haridwar.
