Is RAC issued in this train and other garib rath trains?
If so which berth is allotted to passengers. ?Considering that this train also has side middle berths isnt it uncomfortable for RAC passengers also.?

As usual RAC is issued in this train. SL berth is allotted for RAC. Side Middle Berth has been removed from this train.

Very true. While waiting for Goa express at NZM, I just peeped into one of the compartments of the GR, and was surprised to see youngsters and business people in suits and sparkling clothes, with laptops and mobiles outnumbering the number of passengers in the coach

I dont think side middle berths has been removed from garib rath trains. At least the YPR-KCVL & KCVL-Mumbai garib rath do still have side middle berths

Since you have asked regarding 12202/KCVL-LLT GR Express I have answered to that train. Regarding other GR trains I doesn't know whether SMB is there or not. On January 22, 2015 when I last travelled from LTT to CAN SMB was not there. Before that in December 21, 2014, when travelled from CAN to LTT, SMB was not there in my coach but some other coach was having SMB. Now what I came to know is that they have removed all SMB from this train and permanently augmented with an additional coach.

Ok great. I was not aware that SMB has been removed for the KCVL-LTT Garib Rath train. It was anyways quite uncomfortable for lots of passengers.
