The Union Cabinet has approved the restructuring of the Railway Board, including reduction in the Board strength as well as merger of the different cadres into a central service called the Indian Railway Management Service (IRMS).
The government said this would help end “departmentalism”, while ensuring smooth working of the Railways.
The Board now consists of eight members, including the Chairman, from different service departments such as traffic, civil, mechanical, electrical and signal & telecom.
Research in India has shown that an alarming number of Indian athletes miss their periods and are deficient in key minerals, putting them at major risk of suffering career-threatening injuries as well as long-term health consequences, including osteoporosis.
Indian women athletes showed higher deficiencies and health risks when compared to their counterparts worldwide. This condition is called Female Athlete Triad syndrome.
The potential injuries because of Female Athlete Triad include ACL damage, stress fractures, back and knee injuries in wrestling, and shoulder injuries in case of a boxer.
