Hi Subhasis,

C2960 is a L2 only switch. VRF is L3 features, and it is not available to 2960.

Thanks Jerry

If any alternative option is there to integrate 2960 switch with MPLS network, please let me know , we are creating sub interface on the router,and want to distribute multi vrf to the user.

Well, that's the only option if you just have a 2960 available.

Subinterface on a router with a vrf associated to that interface. This subinterface will belong to a specified Vlan with the 'encapsulation dot1q' and the users on the 2960 will use that router interface as their L3 gateway.

You will just create the L2 Vlans on the 2960 and you should have a VRF aware environment with the available hardware.
