dated 22.07.2016 restores the provisions of the scheme as it existed prior to

benefit of GPF was available to temporary status Casual Labourers prior to

the purpose of contribution in GPF including those Temporary Status Casual
Labourers who have not been regularized as yet. In this context, provisions of
