After the unfortunate spread of coronavirus many organizations, including government, are considering providing health benefits to their employees so as to maintain their interest in jobs and uplift their morale in the hard times. Regarding this, Indian Railways is now proposing to widen the scope of health insurance or medical treatment of railway employees.

Accordingly, a committee has been constituted to examine all the aspects of the ‘Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme’ for its staff in order to provide insurance cover against their financial risks during medical emergencies and other similar situations. It also invited suggestions and reviews of its heads like Zonal, Regional, and other higher rank officials.
