(iv) TRD Staff working on track.
(v) PWI Khalasis working on track.
2. Pursuant to issue of the ibid instructions, the employees’ Federations have been demanding removal of the term “working on track” suffixed with these categories on the ground that the same employee who-has been covered under this Scheme may be working at different places at different point of time and may not always be working on track. The matter has been considered by the Board and it has been decided to delete the term “working on track” suffixed with these categories.
3. The revised instructions would be applicable from the retirement/recruitment cycle of January- June 2016 onwards.
