Appeal from FA&CAO/South Central Railway

We may all remember that Shri R.V. Subba Rao, IRAS officer of the 1979 batch, who superannuated on 30th September 2011, expired on 16.12.2012. He left behind 3 children - two minor children and one mentally challenged son, who is not capable of independently taking care of himself or his financial responsibilities. Sadly, his wife had predeceased him. His colleagues on South Central Railway have therefore formed a society called “The Railway Officers’ Family Welfare Society, Hyderabad”. The society has been registered (Regn.No.294/2013) with the Registrar of Societies, RR District, and has applied for guardianship, which is still under process. So far, the financial needs of the children have been met through contributions from Shri R.V. Subba Rao’s colleagues and retired officers of South Central Railway as well as his batchmates. The IRAS Officers Association had also initially extended financial help. All IRAS Officers are requested to contribute to look after the children till the issue of their guardianship is resolved. Contributions may be made to “The Railway Officers’ Family Welfare Society, Hyderabad” (Registration No.294/2013) preferably through NEFT, to The Railway Officers’ Family Welfare Society, Hyderabad.

About IRAS

As a part of the scheme of reorganization of the Railway Board as recommended by the Acworth Committee (1921), the Financial Commissioner for Railways was appointed in April 1923. This was followed by the Separation Convention of 1924 by which the Railway finances were separated from the General Finances of the Government of India. The process of the separation of the Accounting and Auditing functions on the Railways was completed in 1929, with the responsibility for the compilation of all the Accounts for the Indian Railways passing on from the Auditor General to the Financial Commissioner, Railways. This, incidentally, marked the beginning of the Indian Railways Accounts Service (IRAS) as a cadre distinct from that of the Indian Audit and Accounts Service. The Financial Commissioner for Railways represents the Ministry of Finance on the Railway Board and also functions ex-officio as Secretary to Government of India in the Ministry of Railways in financial matters. In this capacity, ...
