Sub: Certificate of re-marriage/marriage – reg. 

          The undersigned is directed to refer to Annexure XXVI of the Scheme Booklet of the O/o CGA, which is a proforma for Certificate of RE-marriage/Marriage. As

2.      This department has received request from Pensioners Union of Railway Employees, Chennai (copy enclosed) stating that the widows of the deceased
employees are required to submit the certificate countersigned by a responsible officer or a well-known person. More often the widow, when approaches the
show-called responsible officer/well-known person,are being harassed. They feel that the present stipulation of getting counter signature is not only
unwarranted but also an affront to the womanhood in the context of atrocity against women rampant in the country. This is inconsistent with acceptance of
certificates with self-attestation.
3.      Therefore, the Union has requested to eliminate the provison of getting counter signature from others duly accepting self attested certificates.
