Railway Board Letter No

Circular Subject
Surrender of Metal Pass by retiring Railway Officers

Instructions   already   exist  vide   Board's   letter No.E(W)/89  PS5-1/9 dated 17.2.1992 that retiring officers  shall return the Metal pass, before/at the time of retirement,  failing  which post-retirement complimentary pass shall be forfeited  till  such  time the Metal Pass is surrendered or 3 times the  cost  of the Metal Pass is remitted by the retired Railway Officer.


Instances  have come to the notice of Board  that  Duty Pass (Metal Pass or Card Pass) issued to Railway Officers are not being  surrendered  before/at the time of retirement,  which  has  resulted  in its misuse in some cases.  It has,  therefore,  been  decided by Board that retiring Railway servant shall obtain a "No Objection  Certificate"  from Pass Section and submit it  to  the concerned authorities before his settlement dues are released.


3. In  view of above, Schedule I Part-II of Railway  Servants(Pass)  Rules, 1986 (Second Edition, 1993) may be amended  as in Advance Correction Slip No.22 enclosed.


4. In  all other respects, the provision of Railway  Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986 shall apply.


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



1986 ( 2nd EDITION 1993 )
