A division bench of the Central Administrative Tribunal comprising Justice B Seshasayana Reddy and Ranjana Chowdary on Tuesday dismissed applications filed questioning a corrigendum notification issued by the South Central Railways to admit trainee apprentices after the tribunal granted an interim order against the notification.

The Railways pointed out that it was not a matter in relation with employment and therefore the petition was not maintainable. The Railways under the prior notification had sought to select apprentices on the basis of a written test. However, under the impugned corrigendum, it placed a higher priority for ITI holders.
