The General Manager (P),

Sub: Grant of Children Education allowance/Hostel subsidy to third child when first / second child is not in a position to go to school due to severe disability.

References have been received from Zonal Railways seeking clarification regarding admissibility of Children Education Allowance / Hostel Subsidy in respect of third child of the Railway employee when the first / second child is not in a position to go to school as he/she is born with profound mental retardation or is totally invalid and cannot even go to a school meant for the special children.

2. The matter has been examined in consultation with DOP&T, the nodal Department in respect of aforesaid policy and they have intimated vide OM No.A-27012/1/2014-Estt(AL) dated 26-08-2014 that Children Education Allowance/Hostel Subsidy shall be admissible only for the eldest two surviving children except when the number of children exceeds two as a result of second child birth resulting in twins or multiple births. Copy of DoP&T’s OM is enclosed for information and guidance of all.

3. This disposes of CORE’s letter number E/O/39 dated 05-06-2-2014 & ICF’s letter number PB/WI/Misc/2014 dated 09-06-2014 on the matter.
