Retired from railways? Now, you can seek re-engagement till 65 yrs

Yet to turn 65 years? Want to work with the railways even after your retirement? Don’t worry! Now, retired rail employees can seek re-engagement with the national transporter till they attain the age of 65 years.
The age limit of the retired employees seeking re-engagement has been increased from 62 to 65 years, the Railway Board told to all the general managers on Tuesday.
However, the suitability or competence of the Railways staff should be assessed before their re-engagement. Also, the safety record, as well as other operational requirements, should be adequately addressed.
“The board has decided to enhance the maximum age limit for re-engagement of retired hands to 65 years from the existing age limit of 62 years. Further, it has also been decided to extend the validity of the scheme of re-engagement of retired employees to January 12, 2019, as against the existing validity up to September 14, 2018,” the letter stated.
On October 16, the Railway Board had empowered the divisional railway managers (DRMs) to re-engage retired rail personnel in appropriate posts. “The monthly remuneration of such employees would be determined by reducing the pension amount from their last drawn salary,” the letter written in October had stated.
Currently, the retirement age for all the railway employees is 60 years.
