As part of its annual activities the Railway Women’s Welfare Central Organization (RWWCO) distributed merit scholarships to the wards of non-gazetted employees working in Ministry of Railways. The purpose of sanction of such scholarships was to encourage railway children to excel well in education especially technical education courses like B.Tech, B.E., M.B.B.S., and also other forms of higher education. This year 38 such scholarships were distributed to beneficiaries by Smt. Rashmi Mital, President/RWWCO at a function held here in March 2015.
RWWCO is the apex body of the chain of women’s welfare organisations spread over all Indian Railways engaged in the task of welfare of railwaymen and their families through various need-based socio/welfare activities. The organization started its activities in 1962 after Indo-China War, and While the primary concern of the Organisation is the welfare of Railway employees and their families, it has always risen to the call of the society and the nation- be it environmental awareness, family welfare drives, disturbances on the borders or the natural calamities. It is one of the fore-runner voluntary Organisations in the country today.
