    Re: What is the New VRS scheme in Railways?

    New Scheme for Railway Staff taking voluntary retirement Indian Railways is all set to start new scheme for its employees who take voluntary retirement from service.
    Under the safety related retirement scheme, railways will provide employment to one of the family member of the retiring employee.

    This scheme can be availed by an employee, aged between 50-57 and employed under the safety category, who have completed the minimum tenure of 20 year service.
    General Secretary of All India Railway Federation, Shivgopal Mishra, on Wednesday said that this scheme would start with pay scale of Rs.1800 and the employee will be promoted to higher pay scale as well.

    “This scheme will be beneficial for the older ones and with young blood taking charge, productivity and safety in railways will also increase,” said Mishra.

    He further said that Ministry will formally announce this scheme soon.
    At present , there are around 2.5 lakh employees in the safety category but around 18,000 employees will benefit from the upcoming scheme.

    Under this scheme, apart from providing employment to one of the family members, regular pension will also be paid to the employee.

    Regarding the scheme, Mishra said that the said scheme was formulated at the time of NDA Government when Nitish Kumar was the Railway Minister.

    “The scheme was formulated when Nitish Kumar was the Rail Minister. But at that point of time, the scheme was not passed due to some issues,” said Mishra.
    Meanwhile, under the banner of All India Railway Federation a dharna was organised near the DRM office demanding welfare of the employees and putting a curb on the outsourcing of service sector of the railways.

    “This is in larger interest of the passengers, rail users and the employees.” Mishra said.

    New Scheme for Railway Staff taking voluntary retirement

    Under the safety related retirement scheme, railways will provide employment to one of the family member of the retiring employee.
    all safety categories including Gangman with grade pay of Rs. 1800/-. The condition of having minimum 33 years qualifying service has been reduced to minimum 20 years and the eligibility age group from 55-57 years to 50-57 years. However, in the case of Drivers, the condition of qualifying service i.e. 33 years and eligibility age group i.e. 55-57 will remain the same.

    I am listening from a long time of one year but no step has been taken till now Is it a false story of giving employment to the ward of railwaymen.
    Ministry of railway is playing game with railwaymen.

    Dear friend,
    The new VRS scheme in railway is a safety related retirement scheme, in which when a member of a family get retirement on safety basis from railway a younger one of same blood from the family gets the job. The minimum age limit of applying retirement in this scheme is 50-57 and he should also have minimum of 20 yrs of service. As your father is 51 yrs old n has 31 yrs of service, he can apply for retirement in this new scheme n hopefully you can join there.

    All the best...May you have a bright future that too much better than your father...

    Re: What is the New VRS scheme in Railways?

    Besides right to seek retirement on attaining 50/55 years or 30 years of Qualifying Service Railway employee can opt for Voluntary retirement.
    Railway employee who wish to retire voluntarily has to give a notice of 3 months.
    Shorter notice may be accepted at the discretion of the Appointing Authority.
    Minimum 20 years of Qualifying Service is necessary.
    Weightage upto 5 years Qualifying service may be added provided (i)total Qualifying Service does not exceed 33 years.(ii)period does not go beyond normal period of retirement. (iii) No other benefits like notional increase in pay etc. will not be done. (iv) Weightage is not admissible for those who who has been retired by the Government in public interest.
    Notice once given maybe withdrawn before the proposed date of retirement only with the permission of the competent authority. [Ref 1]
    Request for VR/ Withdrawal of VR

    Railways should consider requests for voluntary retirement or withdrawal of notice for voluntary retirement in a reasonable and rational manner and refuse only if there are valid reasons for doing so which should also be recorded and conveyed to the concerned employee within the stipulated time. [Ref 2 & 3 & 4]
    Accident free service award

    Accident free service award will be given to the staff who have taken voluntary retirement also. [Ref 5].
    Commutation of Pension

    In case of voluntary retirement lower commutation factor would be applicable as per Commutation Table, considering the age on the next birthday of the retiring employee after the date of birthday.
    Eg: Suppose an employee Mr. X has taken voluntary retirement just 2 days before his actual date of Superannuation as under:

    Basic Pension : Rs.7300/-
    Date of birth : 5th June, 1945
    Date of Superannuation : 30th June, 2005
    Date of Voluntary Retirement : 28-06-2005

    [ 7300 X 40% ] X 12 X 9.81 (Commutation factor for age 61 and not 60) = Rs.3,43,742/- [Ref 6]
    Leave at credit

    A Railway servant giving notice of voluntary retirement may also apply for the leave standing to his credit (except Extra ordinary leave) which may be granted to him to run concurrently with the period of notice.
    In case, a Railway servant applies for voluntary retirement while already on extra ordinary leave other than on medical ground, the notice period need not be insisted upon and his request may be accepted with immediate effect provided he is clear from vigilance angle.
    If a Railway servant while already on extra ordinary leave on medical ground, applies for voluntary retirement, the notice period, if any, given may be accepted and he may be allowed to retire after the expiry of the notice period subject to vigilance clearance.[Ref 7]
    Retention of Quarters

    A Railway employee on retirement /voluntary retirees / retired compulsorily may be permitted to retain the non-earmarked Railway accommodation for a period of 4 months on payment of normal rent/flat rate of licence fee/rent and the next 4 months on educational or sickness account on payment of special licence fee, i.e., double the normal rent or double the flat rate of licence fee/rent.
    Retirement/death gratuity or special contribution to P.F. can be withheld in full for non-vacation of railway quartersafter retirement / VR. One set of post-retirement pass should be disallowed for every month of unauthorised retention of Railway quarters by retired staff. [Ref 8]
    Benefit for Pass Rules

    A benefit of 5 years service on voluntary retirement is granted towards the qualifying service for the grant of post-retirement complimentary passes. [Ref 9]
