South Western Railway introduced AC chair car fare for 3-tier AC coaches of five trains between Bengaluru and Mysuru since last month.
According to Pradeep Kumar, a rail enthusiast from Mysuru, one can travel AC 3-tier by paying Rs. 260 on Kaveri, Myladhutharai, Hampi, Golgumbaz, and Tuticorin Express trains with Railways earmarking one each 3-tier AC coach in these trains for the purpose. Normal 3-tier AC fare is Rs. 490 for this section.
The decision appears to have been taken following 3-tier AC coaches remaining empty between Mysuru- Bengaluru-Mysuru.
the current booking of seats commences one hour before the departure of these trains, online booking is available for journeys starting from February only, he said.

Oct 16 2016 (10:07)   Dasara over, but no sign of additional train to Bengaluru

MP had promised that a new service would be introduced during Dasara
Hundreds of daily commuters on the Mysuru-Bengaluru section are having to suffer through overcrowding in trains during peak hours because of the delay in introduction of the additional service promised by the authorities.
Though Pratap Simha, the Mysuru MP, had gone on record, and even announced on social media sites, that a new service would be introduced during Dasara, there appear to be no signs of a new train even after the festivities.
a commuter, said that because of the rush, many people are forced to stand in toilets in Chamundi Express. “I have travelled in toilet class on many occasions as it is difficult to find a place to stand, let alone sit,” he said.
The occupancy rate in Chamundi Express is often in excess of 200 per cent of its carrying capacity, as its scheduled departures from both Mysuru and Bengaluru suit office-goers. Thus, people are almost always packed like sardines inside.
Mr. Simha had said that the new service would to be a “shadow” or “duplicate” service to Chamundi Express, which leaves Mysuru at 6.45 a.m. and Bengaluru at 6.15 p.m.
Senior Divisional Operational Manager Vinayak says a proposal on a new service was sent to the Railway Board long back but there has been no response yet. “But we also need rakes, without which the service cannot be introduced,” he said.
At present, 32 pairs of trains (including bi-weekly and weekly ones) operate between the two cities. But most of them are long-distance services. Chamundi Express is the only train suitable for office-goers.
While Mr. Simha was not available for comment, the MP’s office said he was fully aware of the problem faced by commuters and has been seeking intervention at the ministerial level to get the proposal cleared.

I don't think booking for coach in rajdhani or duronto is allowed. But you can bulk book your seats. visit DCM office or chief reservation supervisor and they will guide you.

If I book from Birur/Arsikere to SBC in 2S on Sunday, Will I be able to get my seat? Because in NZM-AII Janshatabdi, there was no place to seat even I had confirmed ticket. People with general ticket were sitting on our seats. Please suggest whether to go for this train or not. Also, How is general coach in 16580 in SMET-YPR Intercity?

you will definitely get your seat. Both from RRB and ASK. 16580 general coaches are good and clean. In fact its a LHB rake so coaches are good.
