The Indian Railways has scrapped the provision of minimum educational qualification for giving jobs on compassionate grounds to the wives or widows of its employees, who died in service or retired for medical reasons.

In its communications to zonal railways, the Railway Board said there were a lot of queries from zonal railways about cases in which the wife or the widow of the employee didn't have the minimum required qualification for a Level-1 job on compassionate grounds.

After deliberating on the queries for some time, the board decided the rule for mandatory minimum educational qualification be scrapped.

At present, the minimum educational qualification required to be eligible for such employment is Class X for Level-1 or Group "D" jobs.

"It has now been decided that in case of appointment of a wife not having requisite minimum educational qualification she will be placed in the Level - I of the pay matrix...without insisting on fulfilment of educational qualification norms," says the Railway Board letter.
