Sub: Appropriate stamping on the passes as per revised travel entitlements.
Ref: Board’s letter No.E(W)2016/PS5-1/8 dated 31.01.2019.
It has been brought to the notice of Board that even after passage of more than 4 months from issue of revised travel entitlements on different kinds of passes vide Board’s letter cited under reference, the stamping of entitlement of berth by some of the Pass Issuing Authorities (PIAs) is still not revised causing difficulty in booking ticket on such passes.
2. It may be noted that in the aforementioned revised travel entitlements, the maximum number of berths admissible to railway servants in each Pay Level in Pay Matrix (PLPM) has been clearly stipulated in numbers (viz. 1, 2, 3) and the same is available for travel by any of the eligible member (ie. self or spouse or family member or dependent relative) included in the pass without any restriction, except in the case of duty passes where self travel is mandatory.
3. The Railways are, therefore, advised to check and ensure that stamping of berth entitlement on the passes is made strictly in accordance with the revised travel entitlements. A compliance report in this regard may also be furnished for the information of Board.
