no change in duties as in the case of movement from Goods Guards to Sr. Goods Guards and Goods Drivers to Sr. Goods Driver etc. However, the benefit of fixation under above rule would be admissible in the cases of functional promotion such as Sr. Goods Guard to Passenger Guards and Sr. Goods Drivers to Passenger Drivers etc. though in identical scale of pay.
