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 13 lakh 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.
