Fact is, Gitanjali Express is unsolved puzzle. it is unique case across IR that PC from one Div & Rake from another. beside that, Train no. from SER & Rake from ECoR, so it is better not to go in details about div of Gitanjali Express.

Not quite. 8xxx and 28xx series numbers are used for both SER and ECoR as ECoR too was part of SER earlier. This kind of numbering is common with all the trains from the new zones like SWR, ECoR etc.
17229 Sabari express also has a similar arrangement for PC. The rake belongs to BZA division of SCR, but it gets a PC and a UR coach from SC division. But, Gitanjali is probably unique in getting the coach from a different zone altogether.

Thanks for providing information about Sabari Express which new piece of information for me.
Before RSA with Sri Jaganath Express, Reff to old TT, After 2841/2 Superfast Number, SER has 2859/60 superfast number which was having SER Rake so after RSA, Number was not changed, so it is SER Train number for Gitanjali from my point of view.

Where is the need of changing the number after RSA dear? 28XX series sf train number is used by both SER and ECOR, so 2859/60 number can also be a number of ECOR like 2801/02 for purushottam and 2815/16 for nandan kanan..
