16.

Subsidized Hostels

In some cases, capacity of subsidized hostels utilized is less than 50%. Overhead expenditure per student, in most cases is Rs. 1500 to Rs. 2000 per year and in some cases as high as Rs. 7000/-.

There is no 'built-in' integral link of these hostels with any academic institution, thus leaving a vital gap in ensuring a modicum of general discipline. Two subsidized hostels at Patna, and Alambagh (Lucknow) had to be closed down in recent years because of indiscipline.

Students residing in hostels are mostly studying in colleges or professional institutions and a substantial number out of them are children of senior subordinate staff drawing pay exceeding Rs. 579 P.M.

Fourth Pay Commission has recommended Rs. 150/- as hostel allowance instead of Rs. 60/- obtaining at present. Persuade students staying in Railways' subsidized hostels to find accommodation in the hostel of the institutions or a recognised hostel near it, as they are now eligible for a subsidy of Rs. 150/- per month. In case of children of staff in the revised scales of pay upto Rs. 579/-, they may be given additional subsidy of Rs. 150/ - per month per child out of Staff Benefit Fund which should provided with additional funds to that extent

The functioning of subsidized hostel should be improved. A Senior Railway Staff (preferably a teacher) to be provided family accommodation in hostel itself, if necessary, by suitable extension. Special allowance should be sanctioned and the warden granted disciplinary authority over the inmates.

Suitable facilities for the inmates should be provided.
