Ref: (i) NFIR’ s letter No. 11/13 (B) dated 14/02/2017.

Federation vide its letters of even number dated 10/05/2016, 23/05/2016, 22/08/2016 & 25/11/2016 has been requesting the Railway Board to extend the age limit of retired Railway Doctors upto the age of 70 years facilitating their appointment as Contract Medical Practitioners.
In this connection, NFIR invites the kind attention of the Board (DG/P and DG/RHS) to CMD, Central Railway’s letter dated 17/02/2017 (copy enclosed) wherein request has been made to allow re-appointment of Dr. Bansode an eminent Cardiologist who is well versed with ECHO studies and is dedicated, highly skilled, sincere and has special rapport with the Railway patients as Contract Medical Practitioner, as a special case. Federation is of the view that the proposal of CMD, Central Railway deserves to be considered, duly modifying the extant policy suitably so that the retired Railway Doctors can be appointed upto the age of 70 years.
NFIR therefore, requests the Railway Board (DG/P & DG/RHS) to kindly see that the approval is accorded revising the age limit to 70 years for the purpose of engaging retired Railway Doctors as Contract Medical Practitioner.
