Government Employees responsible for Deletion of the name of an ineligible Dependent


Government Employees responsible for Deletion of the name of an ineligible Dependent

The undersigned is directed to state that in accordance with the definition of 'family' mentioned in Ministry of Health Memo. No. F.6(1) 1-54-H, dated the Ist May, 1954 the family of a beneficiary for the purpose of CGHS scheme includes husband/wife of the CGHS card-holder, as the case may be, wholly dependent children or step-children and parents, who are mainly dependent on and residing with the Government Servant. While it is incumbent upon the card issuing. Authorities, i.e. various departments and offices participating in the scheme, to ensure that the names of only genuine and eligible persons are included in the CGHS token cards, it is the responsibility of the employees concerned to apply for a deletion of the name of the dependent from the CGHS card, when the ward is no more entitled to the benefit eligible under the scheme. The failure on the part of a cardholder to get the name of a child deleted from the CGHS token-card when he is no more dependent on him is a good and sufficient reason for initiating disciplinary proceedings against him in terms of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965.

All Ministers/Departments of the Government of India are requested kindly to ensure that the above said provisions are complied with fully. These instructions may also be brought to the notice of all employees concerned.

Opting out of the C.G.H. Scheme
Spouse employed outside Central Government and availing Medical Facilities provided by his/her Employer
Central Government Servants covered under Central Govt. Health Scheme and whose spouse is employed in Defence or Railway Services, State Government or Corporations or Bodies financed partly or wholly by the Central or State Government, Local Bodies and private organizations which provide medical facilities to the employees and their family members, can opt out of the CGH Scheme and avail medical facilities so provided by the above mentioned organizations.

It is to be ensured that neither of the two nor their family members avail medical facilities from both the sources at the same time and for this purpose, the concerned Central Government employee shall give an undertaking to the authority issuing the CGHS Card.

Re-admission under CGHS after 'opting out'
Such Government Servants, who have opted out of CGHS, may apply for readmission and avail the benefit of CGHS in case their spouse dies or resigns or is dismissed from the office/organization, which provided medical facilities.

Availability of 'Opting Out' Facility
The facility of opting out of CGHS can only be availed twice during the whole service career of the employee. Administrative Ministry/Department shall record the same by making an entry in the employee's Service Book.

7th CPC - Payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum


7th CPC - Payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum

No. III/DR/2/Part IV
Dated : 05/09/2017
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Implementation of recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission - payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum - reg.

Federation invites kind attention of Railway Board to para 8.16.14 of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission, according to which, the Track Maintainers, Running Staff Car Drivers, Points Man, Technicians in Workshops etc., on Indian Railways who are supplied uniform and are required to wear dress regularly have been recommended to be paid Rs. 5000/- per year as Dress Allowance (including shoes).
Vide foot note to the above recommendation, the 7th CPC has also recommended that the
Ministries/Departments may take a decision on "whether the rates should be Rs. 5000/- per year or Rs. 10,000/- per year". This recommendation has been accepted by the Government.

In this connection, NFIR points out that the Dress Allowance amount of Rs.5000/- per annum is very much inadequate to take care of the annual requirement of the staff in Railways, particularly due to the reason that staff of Railway categories' are required to wear the uniform regularly while on duty as per extant rules.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider payment of Dress Allowance at Rs.10,000/- per annum to the Track Maintainers, Running Staff, Ticket Checking Staff, Pointsmen, Technicians etc., and accordingly issue instructions to GMs etc.,

A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.
Yours faithfully,
S/d,

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub : Grant of increment on promotion within merged scales in the same Grade Pay Rs.4200 - reg.
Ref: FA & CAO/T/SC Railway's letter No. ACP/KOO/Pt. VI (Restructuring) dated 06/01/2017 & 21/03/2017 and letter No. ACP/AO2/Pt. VI dated 01/08/2017 to Railway Board.

Federation invites attention of the Railway Board to the letters of FA & CAO/T/SC cited under reference, seeking clarification as to whether the staff promoted from same Grade Pay to same Grade Pay (Rs.GP 4200) i.e. from the post of Senior Cashier (GP 4200) to the post of Inspector of Cashier (10C/GP 4200) are entitled to draw an additional increment as they are shouldering responsibilities.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that the references sent by the South Central Railway have been pending in Board's Office since Jan 2017, even though the employees are eligible for additional increment on promotion to identical Grade Pay, shouldering higher responsibilities in terms of Rule S-13.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarificatory instructions allowing benefit under S13 to GM, S.C. Railway, endorsing copy to other Zonal Railways as well to the Federation.
Yours faithfully
S/d,
