CBI arrests former Chairman of Railway Recruitment Board, Mumbai

The Central Bureau of Investigationhas arrested Chairman, Railway Recruitment Board, Mumbai(under suspension) and Senior Divisional Personnel Officer, Raipur in a railway recruitment scam relating to examinations of the Assistant Loco Pilot and Assistant Station Master.

The CBI had earlier arrested eight accused persons i.e. son of Chairman Railway Recruitment Board (RRB), Mumbai; the then Additional Divisional Railway Manager (ADRM); his son; one Raipur-based agent; one employee of Health Department of Government of Andhra Pradesh and three Hyderabad-based agents and all were in Judicial Custody. These eight accused persons were taken into three days CBI custody from the designated Court at Hyderabad today.

Though the CBI had concrete evidence that Sharma's son, Vivek Bharadwaj Sharma, was the one who leaked the examination papers of Assistant Loco Pilot and Assistant Station Master held on June 6 and 13 respectively, they wanted to probe the role of the former Chairman in the scam. The CBI has unearthed the scam by conducting simultaneous raids at Mumbai, Bangalore, Raipur, and Kolkata & Hyderabad. It is estimated that the scam runs into several crores of rupees. Further investigation is continuing.

Hospital would then give the flexibility of providing generic equivalents of the prescribed medicine

(Medical Hospital-I Section)

Nirman Bhawan, New Delhi
Dated the 26th May, 2010


It has been observed that Doctors in the Central Government hospitals and autonomous institutions under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare prescribe specific brands of medicines quite often with a rider that no substitute should, be supplied. Instances have also come to notice where the prescribed drug was very expensive and cheaper substitutes were available. However, the patient did not have any choice but to procure the prescribed drug.

The matter has been considered by the Competent Authority. It is observed that generic drugs are usually much cheaper than branded drugs. Therefore, Central Government hospitals must provide only good quality generic medicines. It has, therefore, been decided that whenever any branded drug is prescribed in the above mentioned institutions, it shall invariably also be mentioned that any other equivalent generic drug could also be provided. For instance, if the prescription is for Tablet Crocin, then the prescription should read as ‘Tab Crocin’ or any other equivalent generic drug. The hospital would then give the flexibility of providing generic equivalents of the prescribed medicine.

It has also been decided that henceforth the prescription will be regularly monitored in Dte.G.H.S. to verify compliance with these instructions.

Lok Nayak Bhawan

Dated: 22nd June, 2010


Subject:      Inclusion of names of the widowed or divorced or unmarried daughter/ parents / dependent disabled siblings (i.e. brothers and sisters/) in the PPO – Procedure for – Regarding.

          The undersigned is directed to state that it was clarified earlier vide this Department’s O.M.No. 1/21/91-P&PW (E) dated 20.1.1993 that the revised PPO format introduced w.e.f. 1.1.1990 contains provision for entry of details of all members of the family of the pensioner. The PPOs issued prior to 1.1.90, however, do not contain the names / details of children of the pensioner. In cases where the names of eligible children have not been mentioned in the PPO for various reasons, the pensioner can furnish a list of eligible children to the pension sanctioning authority and obtain an acknowledgement thereof from that authority. This acknowledgment will be produced at the time of submission of family pension claim to the pension sanctioning authority. However, the production of an acknowledgment will not be a pre-condition to the processing of claim for family pension. Even the spouse of the dead Government servant/ pensioner can furnish the details of such Children, if not furnished by the Government servant/pensioner earlier, to the pension sanctioning authority as clarified vide this Department’s O.M. No. 1/21/91-P&PW (E) dt. 15.1.1999.

2.          Representations have been received in this Department from Pensioners/family pensioners and Pensioners Associations indicating the reluctance on the part of Ministries / Departments / Organisations to include the names of eligible family members (i.e. widowed / divorced / unmarried daughters; parents and dependent disabled siblings (i.e. brothers and sisters) in the PPO thereby delaying the sanction of family pension to such eligible family members. This is not only a source of frustration and denial of rightful claim to such eligible family members but at times causes undue hardship to them.

3.        With a view to streamlining and cut delays in the pension sanctioning process, it is hereby clarified that in cases wherein eligibility of family members (i.e. divorced or widowed or unmarried daughter/ parents/ dependent disabled siblings (i.e. brothers/sisters) occurs after issue of the PPO, the pensioner himself or his/her spouse may intimate the details/ names of divorced or widowed or unmarried daughter/parents/dependent disabled siblings (i.e. brothers and sisters), to the pension sanctioning authority as per the procedure indicated in para (1) above. Similarly, in cases where the pensioner or his/her spouse has expired, the widowed or divorced or unmarried daughter/ parents/ dependent disabled sibling can themselves intimate such details to the pension sanctioning authority. However, the family pension in such cases can be processed by the pension sanctioning authority even without such intimation / acknowledgment, if sufficient proof of entitlement is produced by the claimant and all other conditions for grant of family pension are fulfilled.

4.        This issues with the concurrence of the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure vide their U.O. No.368/EV/2010 dated 15.06.2010.

5.        Hindi version will follow.

Yours sincerely
(K.S. Chibb) Deputy Secretary to the Govt. of India
