ABOUT THIS COMPENDIUMThis is a compilation of Railway Boards circulars and instructions on the various aspects of Works Finance covering Surveys, Preparation of Estimates, Tenders, Contracts and Arbitration. The instructions have been arranged based on the subject and hence will not be in strict chronological order.
