In continuation to the above cited references, the Federation desires to convey that the Ministry of Finance has since given clearance. (as informed by the E.D/FE. Railway Board, during discussions) for applying liberalized pension scheme to those substitutes who attained temporary status prior to 01/01/2004 but, however, got regular absorption subsequent to 01/01/2004 with continuous service.

Railway Board is processing the case for issuing orders. This is NFIR/PNM item being pursued by Federation since the year 2011.
