Payment of premia
10. (1) Every Railway Servant, other than a Class III or Class IV Railway Servant, shall be liable to pay to the Insurance Fund such sum of money as may be determined by the Board as premium for the insurance of his life as provided for in this Ordinance and the amount of such premium shall be deducted at the source from his pay and credited to the Insurance Fund.
(2) Where the amount of premium can not, for any reason, be deducted from the pay of the Railway Servant, the Railway Servant shall remit to the prescribed officer the sum of premium payable by him, and any premia remaining unpaid due to inadvertence or negligence of the Railway Servant or otherwise shall be recoverable from him in such manner as may be prescribed.
(3) Default in the payment of premia either for the reason that the pay of the Railway Servant was not drawn or due to his negligence or fault or for any other reason whatsoever shall not affect the right of his family to receive the sum assured in the event of the death of the Railway Servant, but the premium remaining unpaid at the time of his death may be recovered from the assured amount.
(4) The premium which is payable for the insurance of the life of a Class III or Class IV Railway Servant as provided for in this Ordinance shall be determined by the Board and shall be paid by the Railway administration on his behalf to the Insurance Fund in such manner as may be prescribed.
