The former champions ended the day at 76 for no loss with wicketkeeper-batsman Aditya Tare unbeaten on 43 and Kaustubh Pawar on 26.
Rajasthan resumed the day on 269 for two, but lost centurion Vineet Saxena early when Tare held on to a snick off pacer Dhawal Kulkarni.
Robin Bisht (34), Ashok Menaria (26) and R R Parida (28) failed to cash in on starts, but wicketkeeper Dishant Yagnik stayed unbeaten on 76 off 123 balls.
