Hello Mangesh,

as per feature navigator Q in Q is not supported on GSR

I made a search by platform using 12000 PRP and I've found just 802.1Q support (1 tag)

This confirms my experience with GSR.

I would suggest for L2 transport to investigate EoMPLS that is supported on 3GE engine 2 linecard I did extensive tests on this.

In this way you should be able to transport QinQ frames over MPLS.

Hope to help
