“A FEW WORDS” from Mrs Rashmi Kapoor, Additional Member/Finance while laying down office.

Dear members of the IRAS fraternity! Last week the day before Diwali when my RCT appointment was finalized, I reached home and told my husband that RCT was through. He looked up from the book that he was reading after a brief pause and told me “Your train has reached the final destination and your Rail Yatra is over!” As I sat down it hit me that my career span of over 37 years was over! I closed my eyes and all of a sudden like a kaleidoscope my journey spanning 7 different railway zones and Railway Board along with my some expe...

Message from Mrs. Rashmi Kapoor, Financial Commissioner(Railways)

During my recent visit to South Central Railway, I learnt about late Shri R.V. Subba Rao, IRAS (1979 batch). The appeal of FA&CAO/South Central Railway in this regard may kindly be seen. I would request IRAS fraternity to please come forward to help the family.. ...

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. Bank Account No.30191010004374 Syndicate Bank, S.D. Road, Secunderabad – IFSC: SYNB0003019 In case further clarifications are required, the following may be contacted: 1. Shri A. Gopinath, IRAS retd.

Parting Words Shri Arunendra Kumar, Chairman/Railway Board, other Board members, representatives of Federations, my colleagues, Ladies and Gentlemen. It has been a long journey – 37 out of 60 years of my life spent in this organization.

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, ...
