Dear Brother,

Sub: Ex-gratia payment to the families of Railway employees who caught Covid-19 infection in the course of performing duties, hospitalized and unfortunately passed away-reg.

Ref: NFIR’s letter No. NFIR/Covid-19/2020-I dated 0110712020 addressed to Hon’ble Finance Minister, copy endorsed to Hon’ble MR, Cabinet Secretary, CRB & GSs of affiliated Unions.

The above subject was taken up by NFIR at various levels i.e. Central Government and as well at the level of Railway Minister and in this connection, affiliates attention is invited to NFIR’s letter dated 01/07/2020. cited under reference.

Affiliates may please take note that the case for considering ex-gratia payment to the families of Covid-19 victims (Railway employees who got infected in the course of performing duties and unfortunately passed away) is being processed by the Railway Ministry. I have also spoken to the Financial Commissioner”(Railways) today and requested for positive action for providing relief to the families. Further development, if any, on this will be conveyed to the affiliates.

It is hoped that the above position may be apprised to the staff at field level.

Yours fraternally.
