The Railway Board has decided to revise the subscription rates of Railway Employees Liberalized Health Scheme (RELHS) as per the Pay Matrix Level recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.
Following the subscription calculation method of CGHS for Central Government Employees and Pensioners, the Railway Board has now decided and published the revised subscription rates for all the group of Railway employees through its official portal.
On 9th January, 2017 the Health Ministry published the new rates of monthly subscription for availing the CGHS facility. The Central Government Pensioners have an option to get their CGHS Pensioners Card by either making CGHS contribution on an annual basis (12 Months) or by making contribution for 10 years for life time validity.
The rate of contribution to join RELHS shall be last month’s basic pay drawn or the subscription rate indicated in the above table at different levels as per the 7th Pay Commission whichever is lower.
The revised rate of subscription as above shall be applicable to those railway employees who shall be retiring and joining RELHS on or after the date of issue of this letter (23.2.2017). Those who have already retired and are not member of RELHS shall be governed by the rules which were prevalent at the time of their retirement
