Volunteer Traffic Police?

On the 24th of April, 2019, as I passed the IIM-B/HSBC junction in a bus, I found this elderly gentleman working very hard to direct traffic.

He was working with a smile, which is not usual for any traffic policeman around that time of day, 9am, which is peak traffic and congestion time.

I was definitely struck by his enthusiasm and cheerfulness, so I wondered if the Traffic Police are enlisting the help of volunteers? I would certainly like to know…and to thank this particular gentleman for stopping my bus driver, who was creeping forward, with a smile…whether or not he is a volunteer!
