New Delhi: More than 13,000 employees of the Indian Railways are likely to face termination of services over ‘unauthorised’ leaves.

The disciplinary action against the Group C and D employees came after railways minister Piyush Goyal asked top officials to launch a massive drive to identify long-term absentees in various railway establishments.

During the drive, it was found that 13,521 out of 1.3 million workforce were absent from service for a long time without any authorisation.

“The establishment has initiated disciplinary action under the rules to terminate services of such absentees,” read a statement by the Railways.
