2. Doubts have been raised by some of the Zonal Railways as to whether the notifications for GDCE being issued by the Zonal Railways should include employees of all Production Units, or employees of only Production Units coming within the geographical jurisdiction of the Zonal Railway concerned.

3. To enable a view being taken in the matter, the actual practice being followed by the Zonal Railways in this regard during the last 5 years while issuing notification for GDCE was called for.

4. Based on the replies received from the Railways and discussions held on the matter in the PCPQs’ conference held on 23th and 24th December, 2019, the matter has been considered by the Board.

5. In supersession of the existing instructions on the subject, it has been decided that an employee of a Production Unit can have opportunity for GDCE in only one Zonal Railway. Accordingly, a list of the Production Units etc along with the Zonal Railway with which each is clubbed for the purpose of GDCE is enclosed herewith. Employees working in other attached and subordinate offices and any other offices will be eligible for applying for GDCE against notification issued by the Zonal Railways in whose territorial jurisdiction the said offices are located.
