Elevator Hoistway Branch Circuit Wiring

Requesting clarification on NFPA 70, NEC Handbook 2017:

620.24 Branch Circuit for Hoistway Pit Lighting and Receptacle

(A) Separate Branch Circuits. Separate branch circuits shall supply the pit lighting and receptacles. 

1. Required lighting shall not be connected to the load side of the ground fault current interrupter. 


Does the above indicate: 

A separate circuit for the lighting and a separate circuit for the receptacles?


A separate circuit supplying both lighting and receptacle?

Thank you in anticipation.
