As per paragraph 2 (a) (ii), of the letter dt. 9-1-2008 Pharmacists were also made eligiblle for grant of HPCA/PCA subject to fulfilment of the conditions of admissibility except exclusive store Pharmacists who were not involved in dispensing of medicines. Both the recognised Federations, namely AIRF and NFIR have raised the issue in the forum of PNM stating that there is no particular designation of Store Pharmacists in the Indian Railways. The matter has been considered in consultation with the Health Directorate of Railway Board and it has decided to remove the exception made for exclusive Store Pharmacists in paragraph2(a)(ii) in Railway Board’s letter no. E(P&A)II-98/HW-6 dt. 09.01.2008. Pharmacists will be entiled for payment of Hospital Patient Care Allowance / Patient Care Allowance. This would have effect from 01.01.2008 as mentioned in Railway Board’s letter no.E(P&A)II-98/HW-6 dt,09.01.2008.
