Any idea when this train would start getting electric traction from end to end (SC-YPR), now that SBC Rajdhani which travels on the same route is getting(GZB WAP-7)?

These are the links SBC Rajdhani has been getting end-to-end :-
Day 1 : LGD WAP7 30452
Day 2 : GZB WAP7 30228
Day 3 : GZB WAP7 30244 (failed at SC) + LGD WAP7 30275 (till SBC)
4 : TKD WAP7 30395
GZB is not regular yet! But before July, LGD was the fixed link.

Yes. GZB doesn't have sufficient passenger locos.
At the same time LGD is getting HOG-capable locos, which might be used with Rajdhanis.
But for now, it will keep getting random links.

Yesterday I have seen 22692 behind GZB WAP7 crossing HTCY (Hitech City) around 19.15hrs, but couldn't note the number.

It's a mixed bag. P5 requires more rigorous maintenance for it's gear box as that is the component most prone to failure. On perfect track conditions, this would not be a big issue, but since our track conditions are less than perfect, the 3-stage gear box requires rigorous maintenance. On the other hand, because the motors are bogie-suspended in the P5, they would require less rigorous maintenance than the traction motors in other locos. Also, other than the gear box, all other components will have lesser wear-and-tear for a P5 compared to a P7.
