Railway Board has taken an important decision to allow
Senior Citizens to take Cashless treatment in Recognized
Private Hospitals in emergency under Retired Employees
Liberalized Health Scheme (RELHS).
This scheme will now be available in all Metros, State Capitals
and Zonal Headquarters of the Indian Railways. Guidelines to this
Scheme have also been formulated and enclosed as annexure to the
Order dated 18.07.2012 issued by Railway board in this regard.
In an endeavour to alleviate the problems faced by the Sr. Citizens
in getting treatment in emergency, a cashless service for RELHS card
holders to take treatment in recognized private hospitals of National
Capital Region was introduced by Northern Railway vide Board.
Retired Railway employees covered under RELHS-97 will be provided with
all medical facilities as for serving employees.
