National Federation of Indian Railwaymen
The Secretary (E),
Sub: Admissibility of House Rent Allowance in the event of non-acceptance or surrender of railway residential accommodation-reg.
Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 40/2012.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2012/F.E.2/4 dated 12/10/2015.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. I/5(c)/Part I dated 22/02/2016 & 25/04/2016.
During NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 19th/20th May 2016 while discussing the subject matter under Item No. 40/2012, it was decided that a clarification in the matter will be issued. In the meeting the Official Side also agreed that the draft letter to be issued to the Railways, PUs etc will be shown to the Federation. Thereafter a period of over two months has passed, unfortunately draft instructions to be issued have not been sent to the GS/NFIR till date.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to send draft instructions to the Federation for vetting and early return to enable the Board to issue instructions as per agreement.
