In reference to the Board’s letter on revised pay limits for entitlement of Privilege Pass/PTOs,
we would like to bring to your kind notice the following issue for your favourable consideration.

1.  Residential Card Pass is issued to a Railway servant for performing rail journey from the
place of residence to the place of his work.

2.  School Card Pass is issued to each such student son/ daughter of the railway servant to commute between the station of the residence of the railway servant and the station nearest to the school/ college on production of a certificate from the recognised institution where the student is studying.

3.  School Cheque Pass is issued to each such student son/ daughter who is dependent on the railway servant on production of a certificate from the recognised institution where the student is studying and which is away from the headquarters of the Railway servant for undertaking journeys specifically listed in a schedule.

4.  Prior to the issue of Railway Board order on revised pay limits for entitlement of Privilege Pass/PTOs, (Railway Board’s letter No. E(W)2008/PS 5-1/38  dated 6th Jan, 2011 (RBE 3-2011)) travel eligibility for all the three kinds of passes referred above were same as that of passes issued on privilege account. Refer Board’s letter  No. E(W)97PS5-1/62 (RBE No/119/2003) dated 08/07/2003 in the annexure.
