Sub : Permission to retain Railway accommodation at the place of previous posting by Railway officers/staff going on deputation to Joint Venture Companies (JVs) set up by Ministry of Railways with various State Governments.
In terms of Railway Board’s letter of even number dated 13.08.2018 (RBE No.113/2018) instructions had been issued to permit retention of 02(two) quarters/State JV at Non-Metro locations and 01 (One) quarter /State JV at Metro locations for the officers/staff going on deputation to Joint Venture Companies (JVs) set up by Ministry of Railways with State Government, for a period of one year with the further stipulation that quarter retention permission will not be admissible for deputationists to State JVs in Delhi.
2. In exercise of the powers to relax in public interest the existing provisions regarding allotment/retention of Railway quarters and the rent to be charged therefor for a class/group of employees, the full Board, in partial modification of the above order, have now decided to dispense with the distinction between Metro and Non-Metro locations and permit parity in retention of accommodation at Metro and Non-Metro locations. However, the total number of quarters has to be within the same ceiling i.e. the overall ceiling should not change. Further, quarter retention permission will not be admissible for deputationists to State Ns at Delhi.
3. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.
