Did IR ever use these Tiny WDS with any passenger train as an engine or it was originally invented for shunting only?

WDS is a dedicated shunting loco, an indigenised version of a diesel shunting loco in use in UK since 1960s. See this link - click here for the obvious similarities

Privately owned WDS (of somewhat different make), used for shunting iron ore and sinter.
