OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Simplification of procedure for payment of Central Government Employees  Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) dues - regarding

It has been brought to the notice of this Department that in a number of cases delay occurs in payment of Ccntral Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) dues, owing to missing entries, despite the fact that a provision has made for making entries of subscription for CGEGIS, recovered from pay & allowances every year in Part- VII-C of the service book.

2. In terms of para 8.1 Of the Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme, 1980, as contained in this O.M. No. F.7(5)-EV/89 dated 15th May, 1989, which relates to Savings Fund of the Scheme, the total accumulation of savings together with interest thereon will be payable to the member on retirement or on cessation of his employment with the Central Government or to his family on his death while in service. The total accumulation under Savings Fund is provided for in terms of the applicable Table of Benefits pertaining to a particular year as prescribed under the relevant Orders issued by this Ministry from time to time.

3. The issue has been considered in consultation with Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare and Controller General of Accounts. It has been decided that in order to ease the process of payment of Savings Fund on account of CGEGIS at the time of retirement Of a Central Government employee, in all cases where the service of the retiring Central Government employee has been verified, payment of the accumulation under Savings Fund of CGEGIS be made without awaiting confirmation of deduction of each monthly subscription of CGEGIS, as service verification is carried out based on the monthly salary payment and the CGEGIS subscriptions are mandatory deductions from these payments.

4. All Ministries/ Departments are accordingly advised to ensure compliance of above instructions so that the dues of CGEGIS in respect Of Government servants retiring on attaining the age of superannuation are discharged with due promptness. Further, it may be ensured that Ministries/ Departments send their budget requirements for payments under CGEGIS to CCA (Finance) well in advance, preferably, at the time of RE/ BE so that the budget under this head is made on a realistic basis.

CGHS does not procure and provide any stents to its beneficiaries directly and reimburses the cost of procedures at rates prescribed by CGHS to empanelled hospitals. The stents and other products, if any, are supplied by hospital concerned to the patient. Further, no complaint about inferior quality stents having been provided has been received from any CGHS beneficiary.

National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) has informed the views expressed by some stakeholders during consultations with NPPA that stents supplied to CGHS stream are very basic. The Ministry is vigilant about all the services being provided to CGHS beneficiaries including stents.

The Minister of State (Health and Family Welfare), ShFaggan Singh Kulaste stated this in a written reply in the Lok Sabha here today.

7th CPC: AIIMS nurses to go on mass casual leave tomorrow


7th CPC: AIIMS nurses to go on mass casual leave tomorrow

Services at AIIMS are likely to be hit tomorrow as around 5,000 nurses of the premier hospital plan to go on mass casual leave to protest against the "discrimination" by the Seventh Central Pay Commission.
The AIIMS Nurses Union has also threatened to go on an indefinite strike from March 27 if their demands for revision of their pay scales and a hike in allowances are not met.

We are protesting against the retrograde recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission. Our demand is that the entry pay grade for staff nurses should be enhanced to Rs 5,400 from the existing Rs 4,600 and the nursing allowance should be enhanced by Rs 7,800.

Besides, risk allowance and night duty allowances should be given to all nurses as it is given to all other government employees, said Harish Kumar Kajla, President of AIIMS Nurses Union.

We deal with the deadly infections daily but we are not provided enough risk allowance. If the demands are not met, we will go on an indefinite strike from March 27, Kajla added.

The association further claimed that the AIIMS management despite giving assurances has not addressed their issues for over a year.

On the assurance give by the management in a meeting regarding recommendation of enhanced pay scale, the Nurses Union had withdrawn the agitation called upon by the All India Nurses Union and subsequently withdrawn the mass casual leave called on February 26, 2016.

The AIIMS Nurses Union was patiently waiting for the last one year for the fulfilment of the promises made by the administration but our demands went into deaf ears. Despite repeated representations, the administration has shown no mood to address the issue raised by the Union, Kajla claimed.
According to faculty members, the move will badly hit the emergency services and the functioning of the operation theatres of the institute apart from other patient services.

The pay scales proposal has been sent to the Ministry of Health for consideration while the report of government on the allowances has not yet been finalised, a senior AIIMS official said.
