With due regards, your attention is invited to the letter cited under reference on the subject matter whereby MoL&E, Govt of India has been requested to issue necessary clarification/instructions so that disparity amongst the civilian employees of Min of Defence & Min of Railways may be removed.

However, it is regretfully reminded that the matter is still pending in Min of Labour & Employment, Govt of India which is causing discontentment amongst the non-petitioner civilian employees of MoD.
Therefore, you are requested to expedite the matter.
