Sub:- Spot Check of Pension Payments by Pension Disbursing Banks.

Expenditure on Pension accounts has increased substantially due to revision of pension as per 7th CPC. It is therefore necessary that the pension payments made by the banks are monitored closely and the pension debits are checked concurrently to ensure that there are no excess payments and the debits are in respect of bonafide Railway pensioners only. .

Besides internal checks and spot checks of pension payments, a physical verification drive of pensioners may also be launched during November, 2018 like previous years to carry out inspections and verifications of the 'Life Certificate' by pensioners to the banks. A team of staff from Personnel and Accounts department may be deputed for this purpose to visit the banks in their proximity. A suggestive checklist for verification to be carried out is enclosed. A brief report of the outcome of the above verification may be submitted to Board by 15th December, 2018.

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

Special Passes for Medical Treatment - RBE 178/2018

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;

Pension of ex-Govt employees to be net of Income Tax

Honorable Cabinet Minister for Finance
Government of India


Subject: Pension of ex-Govt employees to be net of Income Tax

Sir,
With passage of time, the purchase value of pension due to steep rise in the cost of food items, caregivers and medical facilities etc gets substantially reduced. Due to inflation coupled with low interest rates value of their deposits in Banks/Post offices etc too go on reducing year by year adversely affecting the net-worth of Pensioners. Thus compelling them to compromise their standard of dignified living.

As was worked out & recommended by TECS (Tata Economic Consultancy Services) consultant to Vth CPC (Para 127.9 Vol III 5th CPC report) Pension need to be 67% of the last drawn to enable a pensioner to live with the same standard to which he was living while in service (Supreme Court pronouncement in DS Nakara vs UOI) but only 50% of last drawn is being paid. Old age relief given to Sr citizen in Income tax is too little to compensate.

You are therefore, requested to reconsider & accept the recommendation of Vth CPC vide their 167.11(copy attached) in this regard and spare the pension/family pension along with DR & FMA from the levy of income-tax.

Further to compensate fall in purchase value of their savings in deposits with banks & post offices rate of interests for senior citizens on their deposits should be 2% above the normal rate of interests as against the existing 0.25% to 0.50%.

Hoping for your sympathetic consideration
Thanking you in anticipation
With Regards
Sincerely yours,
S.C.Maheshwari
