Issuance of Special Passes on Medical grounds for follow-up medical treatment in outstation Hospitals

Special Passes for Medical Treatment – RBE 178/2018

Issuance of Special Passes on Medical grounds for follow-up medical treatment in outstation Hospitals: Railway Board Order

RBE No. 178/2018

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

No. E(W)2015/PS5-2/4

New Delhi, dated 16.11.2018

The General Managers (P)
All Zonal Railways &
Productions Units.

The Chief–Medical Directors
All Zonal Railways.

Sub: Issuance of Special Passes on Medical grounds for follow-up medical treatment in outstation Hospitals.

It has been brought to the notice of Board that difficulties are being faced by serving/retired railway employees & their family members due to the present practice or issuing of Special Passes on medical grounds for follow-up medical treatment. Such passes are being issued just a few days before the due date of visit to specialized hospitals located in outstations. Due to this practice, the beneficiaries of such Special Passes are unable to secure confirmed advance reservation.

2. The matter has been examined in consultation with Health Dte. of the Ministry of Railways. Keeping in view the fact that the beneficiaries of such passes are normally those who are suffering from serious ailments like cancer, renal failure, heart ailments, etc. and in order to facilitate securing of advance reservation for them, it has been decided to stipulate the following procedure for issuing of Special Passes [under Schedule VII of Railway Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986 (Second Edition 1993) for follow-up medical treatment:-

(i) The Competent Medical Officer in the Railway Hospital will issue necessary prescription on the basis of follow-up visit advice recorded by the outstation Hospital, as and when approached by the beneficiary, without waiting for the due date for follow-up visit to come nearer. In the said prescription, the period of travel validity (which is to be endorsed on the pass) must be indicated clearly, which shall be one week i.e. 7 days before and 21 days after the clue date of visit. For example, If a beneficiary has to reach a Hospital in Mumbai for follow-up treatment on 8th December 2018, the Medical Officer concerned should write in the prescription: “Special Pass valid for travel from 1st Dec, 2018 to 29th Dcc, 2018 may be issued.”

(ii) The PASS Issuing Authorities, on the basis of Aforementioned prescription and recommendation will issue Special Pass upto 5 months in advance endorsing thereon the travel validity period as “Valid for travel from __/__/_____ to __/__/_____” (i.e. the dates as recommended in the prescription).

3. Moreover, representations are also being received in Board’s office. from the beneficiaries of Special Passes issued on medical grounds complaining of delays in issue of such passes. In this context, the Railways are directed to sensitize the concerned pass issuing officials to issue the Special Passes on medical grounds on the very same day of receipt-of the application in case of serious ailments and at the most, next day in all other cases.

4. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of Ministry of Railways;

New Delhi, dated November 15, 2018

The General Managers,
All Zonal Railways.

Modification in the AVC for promotion to Goods Guards in Grade Pay Rs.2800 (Level-5).

Attention is invited to instructions contained in Board’s letter of even number dated 12.05.2017 regarding modification in the AVC for promotion to the post of Goods Guards in Grade Pay Rs.2800 (Level-5).

In para 2(i) of the aforesaid letter showing the feeder categories eligible to appear in General Selection against 60% quota for filling up the vacancies of Goods Guard in Grade Pay Rs.2800, the categories of Shunting Master-II and Shunting Jamadar, both in GP Rs.2400 (Level-4) may also be included.

This also disposes off Northern Railway’s letter No.752-E/42/E1B/Pt.I dated 31.08.2018.

Board’s letter dated 25.06.1985 has laid down that such appointment be considered as per the educational qualification possessed by the candidate.

2. As regards number of chances, this Ministry’s letter dated 28.04.1999 (RBE No. 84/1999), 21.09.2001(RBE No. 192/2001) and dated 02.03.2012 ( RBE No. 28/2012), specify the number of chances to be given to a candidate (wards as well as widow/wife), for appearing in the suitability test for appointment on compassionate grounds to Non-Gazetted posts on the Railways.

It has now been decided by the Board that in compliance of letters mentioned at para 2 above, maximum of three such chances to the wards and four chances may be given to widow/wife commensurate with their educational qualification to the post and suitability may be adjudged accordingly. Second chance should be given as a rule and uniformally followed.

6. In case a request has been received from the candidate for appointment on other Railway, his/her case may be transferred eylongwith all relevant papers to that Railway. Assessment of suitability may be done by the Railway where the candidate is to be appointed.

Recruitment of candidates from Open Market in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC against 20% vacancies reserved for Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways

Recruitment of candidates from Open Market in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC against 20% vacancies reserved for Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways

NFIR

No. II/94/Part I

Dated: 16/02/2018

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Recruitment of candidates from Open Market in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC against 20% vacancies reserved for Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s instructions contained in RBE No. 71/2016 dated 21/06/2017 & RBE No. 34/2017 dated 12/04/2017.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. II/94/Part I dated 17/07/2017 to Board (CRB).
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)II/2016/RR-1/8 dated 12/08/2017.

Kind attention is invited to the instructions issued by the Railway Board vide RBE No. 71/2016 dated 21/06/2017 and 34/2017 dated 12/04/2017 wherein decision has been taken to reserve 20% vacancies against direct recruitment quota in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC pay matrix from amongst Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways.

In this connection, Federation has come across the Centralized Employment No. CEN 02/2018 (published on 10/02/2018 and Closing date 12/03/2018) wherein the Course Completed Act Apprentice trained in Railway establishments have been allowed to compete along with other outside candidates (Para 12.0 of the notification may be seen) for which respective RRBs have been entrusted the job to recruit the candidates for the Zones to which the requirement is to be catered for. In this connection, Federation conveys that this process is time consuming and the designated RRBs are likely to take more than six months to finalize the panels. The Zonal Railways on receipt of the panels will take further period of about 2-3 months to get the selected and empanelled candidates medically examined for issuing posting orders.

In order to ensure quick availability of candidates, Federation suggests that the quota of 20% vacancies in respect of Railway Act Apprentices may be allowed to be filled by the Zonal Railways directly without linking to RRB/RRC recruitment process.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board (CRB) to kindly arrange to review the matter and see that instructions to the General Managers are issued for inducting Course Completed Act Apprentices to the extant of 20% vacancies in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC Pay Matrix without linking to the recruitment process conducted by RRBs/RRCs.

Federation may kindly be kept advised of the action taken in the matter.

 

Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
