Based on Recommendations of 1st Works Standards Committee meeting held on 16th June 2005, it has been decided by Railway Board to form a separate “Works Directorate” in RDSO.
Works Directorate started functioning independently from September 2008. Works directorate is dealing with unification and standardisation of works matter, issue guidelines/specification of works matter and preparation of works Programme. Works directorate conducts Works Standards Committee meeting and follow up action on Works Standards Committee items and other technical issues cropping up from time to time, through unit of Director/Works. Works unit of the directorate also deals with vendor registration of TMT Reinforcement Bars for supply in Indian Railway.
Works directorate is also responsible for maintenance of RDSO offices, colony & other infrastructural assets including construction of new assets through unit of Director/Civil
