JE/SE Track Machine will be in charge of a Track machine employed for Track maintanance. The job includes extended stay outstations, you will be constantly moving within the Zonal Railways with the machine for work. Mostly you will be sleeping in the machine itself or makeshift tents.

Railway administration can refuse it in the exigencies of service. But there is a Board order saying without valid reason the application should not be refused. Normally if you are clear from vigilance and depertmental proceedings it is not refused.
