2A = 4 (inside lower berths)
3A = 6-8 (side lower berths)
SL = 8-12 (side lower berths)

In all the above classes, 1 lower (or side lower) berth is used as seats instead of berths, 1 berth = 2 RAC seats.

These numbers and seat/berth locations are for normal ICF coaches, it may be different in the larger LHB coaches.

I've seen 10 in Sleeper Class many times, and the reservation charts I used to have actually had 12 in all Sleeper Class carriages and 8 in 3A (Darjeeling Mail).

Thumbs up Number of RAC seats in 3A

Since I am about to travel to Indore and my ticket status changed from W/L 1 to RAC 28 and my cousins W/L 2 changed to W/L 1, I conclude as follows:

There are 28 RAC seats in 3A for Avantika express (Mumbai-Indore), which has 5 3A coaches, so there are about 3 RAC seats per coach (6 passengers).
The number of RAC seats will be more in Sleeper Class and lesser for 2A and the least in 1A.

Cheers!

I remember Steven saying some where that in FC the seating is for 6 people during the day in a cabin and for 3 people during the day in a coupe.

The only time I've noticed RAC in FC they used the first 4-berth cabin, the 2 lower berths.

It's not the kind of thing I used to look out for.

Can any members get hold of actual reservation charts? I used to have a few, but lost them.

I've got the reservation chart for the Bagh Express in a document, but can't seem to upload it, but unfortunately it doesn't have the most interesting pages, the WL/RAC pages.
