Sub: Service Certificate issued to the retiring Railway Employees – modification of proforma requested – reg.
Ref: NFIR’s letter No.II/28/Part VI dated 15/03/2017
Railway Board’s kind attention is invited to Federation’s letter of even number dated 15-03-2017 on the above subject.
while enclosing copy of Federation’s letter dated 15-03-2017, NFIR once again requests the Railway Board to expedite decision to streamline the proformae of service certificate and last pay certificate so that retiring employees may not face hassels for availing health care facilities. A copy of the communication sent to the GMs etc., may be endorsed to the Federation.

Sub: Service Certificates issued to the retiring railway employees – modification of proforma requested.
NFIR has since come to know that in the Service Certificates being issued to the retiring railway employees, it has been mentioned as ” Is he member of RECHS or RELHS – Yes or No”. However, in the Last Pay Certificate being issued to retiring emplyees, it has been mentioned as ” Last Basic Pay drawn to be recovered from settlement dues towards RELHS”. Photostat copies of the Last Pay Certificate as well Service Certificate of retired employee of south central Railway are enclosed.
In this connection, NFIR conveys that the sentence in the sentence in the Service Certificate ” Is he member of RECHS or RELHS – Yes or No” is unnecessary as the Last Pay drawn amount is compulsorily being deducted from the settlement dues of retiring employees. Instead, the Service Certificate should contain an endorsement ” He/she is member of RELHS for which an amount of Rupees which is equivalent to the Last Pay Drawn was deducted”. the present proforma of service certificate and LPC needs to be suitably modified in order to remove confusion and hardships of retiring staff in future days.
Incidentally, it is mentioned that when the above deficiency was pointed out at Zonal level it has been conveyed that the proforma cannot be changed at Zonal level as the formats have been designed and operated by CRIS, New Delhi.
NFIR, therefore, requests Railway Board’s intervention to re-design formates of service certificate and LPC suitably, duly taking into account the points mentioned above.
