Question: Is it bad to have duplicate title tags?
Answer: YES. As per the Google DOCUMENT, all pages should have unique, accurate TITLE tags –
Accurately describe the page’s content choosing a title that has no relation to the content on the page using default or vague titles like “Untitled” or “New Page 1”
Create unique title tags for each page
Each of your pages should ideally have a unique title tag, which helps Google know how the page is distinct from the others on your site. using a single title tag across all of your site’s pages or a large group of pages
Use brief, but descriptive titles
Titles can be both short and informative. If the title is too long, Google will show only a portion of it in the search result. using extremely lengthy titles that are unhelpful to users stuffing unneeded keywords in your title tags
