Railways to consider jobs to children in lieu of VRS

Job in lieu of VRS

Making the safety-related voluntary retirement scheme (VRS) more lucrative, Railways today said it is considering a move to provide employment to the ward of an employee availing the scheme as well as relaxing the age limit under it.

At present, the scheme is available to only gangmen in group D and drivers in group C attaining the age of 55 to 57 years.

Under the new proposal, the scheme will be extended to all safety category staff like pointsmen, khalasi and others.

The age limit will be reduced to 50 years and a ward of the staff will get employment on availing the scheme.

We are considering the move to provide employment to the ward of a railway employee availing the scheme,” Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee said attending a All India Running staff Conference organized by All India Railwaymen’s Federation today on 13 July, 2010 at New Delhi
