No.I/13(a)

Dated: 04/06/2018

Sub: Grant of Children Education Allowance to the railway employees implementation of Board’s decision – problems – reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s RBE No.147/2017 letter No.E(W)2017/ED-2/3 dated 12/10/2017.

Pursuant to Government decision on the recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission, the DoP&T vide No.A-27012/02/2017-Estt.(AL) dated 16/08//2017 had issued instructions revising the amount for reimbursement of Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy. The Railway Board vide RBE No.147/2017 dated l2th Oct, 2017 has issued corresponding instructions to the General Managers for ensuring payment of Children Education Allowance & Hostel Subsidy at revised rates from 01/07/2017.

On Zonal Railways, the staff are facing much inconvenience on account of non-issuance of proper proforma/format for preferring claims, consequently the reimbursement is delayed and claims continued to remain pending due to queries being raised at different levels. It is further learnt that the Eastern Railway, South Eastern Railway and Central Railway have issued proforma/format which are however not common. Other Zonal Railways have not at all issued proforma for preferring the claims. It has however been found that the Eastern Railway Administration has not only circulated format, but also issued JPO.

NFIR is of the view that it would be necessary to bring reimbursement to avoid delay as well staff grievances.

NFIR therefore requests the Railway Board to arrange to issue proper format to enable the employees to prefer claims without hassles together with certificate from the Heads of the Institutions. Such uniform format will be advantageous to the Railway Administration as well to staff who are entitled for reimbursement of Children Education allowance/Hostel Subsidy.

Yours faithfully,
