*******
Federation desires to invite kind attention of the Railway Board to NFIR’s
PNM agenda Item No. 41/2016 relating to the simplification of procedure for
reimbursement of medical expenses claimed by the serving and retired
Railway employees. The subject matter was discussed in the NFIR’s PNM
meeting held with the Railway Board on 22/23-12-2016 when the Official Side
explained that a simplified procedure is being drafted and it Will be
finalized shortly in consultation with the Federation. 
Federation is surprised to note that while no further consultation with the
Federation has taken place the Railway Board vide letter dated 01/06/2017
quietly issued revised reimbursement claim form with Correction Slip to
Annexure-III of Para 648 of IRMM 2000, without citing the NFIR’s agenda
item No. 41/2016. This action has disappointed the Federation whose track
record has been “strengthening IR and improving efficiency levels”. 
NFIR, therefore requests the Railway Board to issue corrigendum to Board’s
letter dated 01/06/2017, incorporating NFIR’s PNM discussions on the
subject matter at the earliest. 
Yours faithfully,
