Passes for widows of Railway servants

                      As per extant scheme of  Widow Pass, widows of Railway servants who were in service on 12.3.87 and opted for the scheme of Widow Pass or widows of those Railway servants who joined service on or after 12.3.87 and are compulsorily governed under the scheme of Widow Pass are eligible for Widow Pass. Instructions were also issued vide Board's letter No.E(W)95 PS5-1/29 dated 24.4.98 that the widows of Railway servants who were in service prior to 12.3.87 will also be eligible to be admitted to the scheme of Widow Pass on a one-time payment of Rs.250/- as  the notional value of two sets of PTOs.

 

2.         Arising out of discussion with AIRF in the PNM Meeting, it has now been decided that widows of Railway servants who had opted out of Widow Pass scheme, may also be admitted to the Widow Pass scheme subject to the condition that they make a one-time payment of Rs.250/- as the notional cost of 2 sets of PTOs. Accordingly, Schedule V of the Railway Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986 (2nd Edition, 1993) may be amended as per enclosed Advance Correction Slip No.33.

 

3.         In all other respects Board's letter No. E(W)85 PS5-8/2 dated 30.6.87 ( RBE No.174/87) and Board's  letter No. E(W)95 PS 5-1/29 dated 24.4.98 (RBE No.83/98) shall be followed.

 

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

 

5.         Wide publicity may be given to the contents of the letter.
