Second sitting or 2S is an ordinary coach with seating arrangement. Normally, it has 3*3 seating type arrangement.

Usually, RAC tickets are allotted Side berths, even if the status moves to "confirmed". If the three tickets are in a single PNR, then chances are that you might get seats together. However, nothing can be said for sure. All the best!

Personal Opinion...
Try For Tatkal... If You Get a Confirm Seat, Cancel the RAC Ticket...
Most probably, You will get a Confirm Seat... Due to Low Season...
But First Get a Confirm tatkal Ticket... Before Cancelling RAC... as RAC too Stands a Good Chance for Confirmation...

173 seats are available sir, Better to try by PRS Since IRCTC website will be too busy at 8 am, Try to get the tatkal tckts as early as possible, to get the preferences you give. it will open by tomorrow 8 am
Thank you sir
