The matter of providing medical facilities to son of Railway employees/pensioners after being unemployed has been under consideration of this Ministry due to various representations received from different forums. Similar representations have also been received on the issue of providing medical facilities to divorced or widower son. Ministry of Railways has decided not to provide the medical facilities, once a son gets employed/married though he becomes unemployed or divorced or becomes widower later on, as the case may be.
Advance Correction Slip (S. No. 02 Health 2018) amending Para 601 (5) of IRMM-2000 is enclosed.

Railway Board is taking decisions unilaterally, irrespective of other central government civil employees, while its retired employees are occupying the seats of Managing Committees of Central Government Pensioners’ Associations at different cities. Railway Board may allow financial assistance/grant-in-aid for formation of Association of retired railway employees and direct its retired employees/officers not to venture anywhere beyond railway facilities. Is it not a Shameful act on the part of Railway Board????
sad to hear it. A very controversial policy between the government and its people. We just pray the best. Hopefully given a way out so that all can feel the benefits.
