All India Railwaymen’s Federation

Dated: August 10, 2017
Sub: Admissibility of House Rent Allowance in the event of non-acceptance or surrender of railway residential accommodation
Ref.: Railway Board’s letter No.E(P&A)II-2010/HRA-2 dated 08.12.2010(RBE No.176/2010)
Vide Railway Board’s letter No.E(P&A)II-2010/HRA-2 dated 08.12.2010(RBE No.176/ 2010)(photocopy enclosed for ready reference), delegation of powers to the General Managers and other heads of the organizations, directly controlling allotment of quarters to Railway Servants, for sanction of House Rent Allowance, in accordance with prescribed conditions to the categories of Railway employees, had been modified w.e.f. 01.04.2010 up to 31.03.2017.
Now, the modified period has since been completed on 31.03.2017 and accordingly House Rent Allowance is not being sanctioned to eligible railway employees, as a result of which eligible staff are facing acute financial hardship.
The Board are, therefore, requested to further extend the currency of period, as was done earlier vide Board’s letter supra dated 08.12.2010.
An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.
