As per paragraph 2 (a) (ii), of the letter dt. 9-1-2008 Pharmacists were also made eligible for grant of HPCA/PCA subject to fulfillment of the conditions of admissibility except exclusive store Pharmacists who were not involved in dispensing of medicines. Both the recognised Federations, namely AIRF and NFIR have raised the issue in the forum of PNM stating that there is no particular designation of Store Pharmacists in the Indian Railways.

E(P&A)II-98/HW-6 dt. 09.01.2008. Pharmacists will be entitled for payment of Hospital Patient Care Allowance / Patient Care Allowance.
