Sub:- AIRF PNM Item No. 19/2016 – Provision for exclusion of retiring
railway employees from mandatory joining of RELHS – 97.

Ref:- Railway Board’s letter of even number dated 31.05.2012.
Vide Board’s letter cited under reference joining of Retired Employees
Liberalized Health Scheme (RELHS) – 97 had been made mandatory for all
retiring railway employees without any exit clause whatsoever. However,
repeated requests are being received from retiring railway employees
toprovide an exit clause from joining REHLS – 97. In some cases Hon’ble
Courts have also ordered for exclusion of certain retiring railway
employees from mandatory joining of RELHS – 97. 
The matter has been examined in consultation with Finance Directorate and
it has been decided with the approval of the Competent Authority that
exclusion from mandatory joining of RELHS – 97 may be given in cases of
those retiring railway employees who are covered for life-long
comprehensive medical treatment facility for self and dependents(s), if
any, on the RELHS or any other Central/State Government medical facility on
the strength of the medical card of their spouse. However, such retiring
railway employees will be required to submit a copy of medical card of
their spouse in which they have been included as a beneficiary for self and
dependent(s), if any, for life-long comprehensive medical treatment
facility on the RELHS or any other Central/State Government medical
facility on the strength of the medical card of their spouse along-with an
understanding that the retiring employee will never request for issuance of
RELHS card in future. 
This will take effect from the date of issue of these instructions. 
This issues with the concurrence of Finance Directorate.
