Sub: Grant of Fixed Medical Allowance to Railway pensioners/family pensioners — change in option.

In terms of Railway Board’s letter No. PC-V/98/I/7/1/1 dated 15-7-2002 (RBE No. 107/2002), the Railway pensioners/family pensioners eligible to opt for FMA had been provided, once in a life time, an opportunity to change their option to avail the benefit of FMA or otherwise on furnishing proof of change in residence. The issue of allowing this one time opportunity to change option for FMA/OPD facility had been under consideration with DoP&PW for quite some time. It has now been decided that the Railway pensioners/family pensioners residing beyond 2.5 kms from Railway Hospital/Health Unit and eligible for RELHS shall be allowed opportunity to avail change in option, once in a life time, from FMA to OPD or a vice versa without linkage to change in residence.
