Transport Act, 1963

Amendment of section 14 of Act of 1958.

19.—(1) Section 14 of the Act of 1958 (which provides for compensation for certain employees of the Board whose services are dispensed with or conditions of service worsened) is hereby amended by the substitution in subsections (1) and (6) of “on or before the 31st day of March, 1964” for “within five years after the passing of this Act”.

(2) For the purpose of reckoning the pensionable service under the Fourth Schedule to the Transport Act, 1950 , of a person to whom the said section 14 applies, if the person was taken into the employment of the Board as a specially qualified person at an age exceeding that at which transport service usually began, his pensionable service may be increased by the addition of such number of years as may seem just.
