Sub: - Non-depositing of collections from SAS/MPKBY agents due to Post Office closed in containment zone-reg. 

Madam/Sir, 

Various references received from SAS/MPKBY agents/agents association regarding non acceptance of their collection of SAS/MPKBY agents due to some Post Offices closed in containment zone in view of COVID-19. No depositing of collection from SAS/MPKBY agents may leads to many difficulties to the depositors. 

Instructions to resolve this issue has already been circulated through CEPT vide email dated 28.03.2020. 

It is once again reiterated that in case of any Post Office not working due to COVID-19 or network failure the collection of SAS/MPKBY agents may be accepted in other Post Office (HO/SO) under the same HO.  Before acceptance of deposit from SAS/MPKBY agents in other Post Office, modify respective agent's ID and change SOL ID to HO SET ID through HDSAMM menu and save it. 

This issues with the approval of competent authority. 
Yours Faithfully, 
(Devenclea Sharma)

CHARGES FOR COVID-19 TREATMENT IN STIPULATING PRIVATE HOSPITALS FOR THE CGHS BENEFICIARIES

No.NC-JCM-2020/Health (COV)                                                              June 20, 2020

The Secretary
Government of India,
Ministry of Health

New Delhi. 110 011

Dear Sir,

 Sub:-  Stipulating charges for covid 19 treatment in private hospitals
                         For the CGHS beneficiaries.

We solicit your kind attention to the directive issued by the Government of India to all State Governments in the country asking them to empanel and involve the private hospitals for treating the corona covid 19 patients.  In most of the States in the country, the concerned State Governments and their health departments centrally controls and regulates the treatment of covid affected patients. The Central Government employees if they are afflicted with covid 19 would be required to be shifted to hospitals for which their choice is seldom asked for. The Government of India has also stated in their order that the State Government might fix the charges for such treatment in the private hospitals  depending upon the facility the concerned private hospitals offer.  Naturally, the State Governments would be compelled to ask the patients about his financial capacity before he is shifted to such private hospitals. 

In the circumstance, it is necessary that the CGHS beneficiaries are informed of the charges the Central Government is prepared to reimburse in case any of the beneficiaries is afflicted by the corona disease and the  type of facilities they are entitled to .

We, therefore, request you to kindly cause an order to be  issued by the CGHS authorities  specifying the rates for each State or metro cities as the case may be . 

Thanking you,
   
                                                                                                         



CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES GROUP INSURANCE SCHEME(CGEGIS)

No.NC/JCM/2020                                                                                                    Date: June 18, 2020

The Secretary,
Department of Personnel & Training,
(Government of India),
North Block,  New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

Sub: Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme(CGEGIS)
Ref.: (i) Customized CGEGIS, Dept. of Expenditure, MoF’s OM dated 07.12.2018
         (ii) Brief on Customized Group Insurance Scheme (Dept. of Expenditure 06.05.2019)
        (iii) Brief Note on CGEGIS (DoPT 06.05.2019)
        (iv) Revised proposal for LIC’s customized Group Insurance(GI) for Central Government
Employees (13.09.2019)

1.                   Revision of Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) is long overdue since the rates of Sum Assured and the premium thereof continues to be the same since it was decided in 1990 inspite of much inflation and devaluation of money.

2.1.       Arising out of 7th CPC recommendations and based on JCM (Staff Side) representation, the Union Cabinet had asked the Ministry of Finance to work out a Customized Group Insurance Scheme for Central Government Employees with low premium and high risk cover.

2.2.       Staff Side had pointed out that the existing Scheme of CGEGIS is having a proven system. It is good except for non-revision of the scheme since 1990.

2.3.       Subsequently, some of the Customized Group Insurance Scheme for Central Government Employees prepared by LIC was shared with the JCM (Staff Side).

3.                   Main drawbacks in LIC proposals: Staff Side finds following major flaws in the proposal submitted by LIC to Department of Expenditure:

3.1               LIC has not given any proposal for the sum assured of 50 lakh, 25 lakh and 15 lakh at lesser subscription compared to the recommended by 7th CPC, as advised by the Cabinet.

3.2               The existing system of CGEGIS is a self-financing scheme, having non-transferable consolidated fund. When handed over to LIC, it will be treated as a profit centre. Hence subscription and other conditions will be changed to provide profit to LIC.

3.3               LIC has proposed a premium(for insurance) 20% higher than 7th CPC recommendations. In addition to that,18% GST on the Subscription have to be borne by employees. Hence, employee will end up in contributing subscription 41.6% more than the recommendations of the 7th CPC.

3.4               LIC’s proposal of revising the subscription every year will be disadvantageous to the employee and as such not acceptable to the Staff Side. 

3.5               LIC’s proposal of age based subscription increases monthly subscription by 4.28 times. It may result in different rates of premium for employees belonging to different age group working in the same pay level.

3.6               LIC also proposed for higher subscription if total number of employees covered in the scheme comes down. This will bring in total uncertainty as staff strength on roll continues to fluctuate due to retirement etc. and non-filling of vacancies.

3.7               LIC asked for transfer of existing corpus (around Rs.500 crore) which was most unreasonable, unprecedented and undesirable, particularly since it does not provide any matching relief to the employees in terms of lower premium.

3.8               Premium proposed to be charged by LIC was too high ,considering a very large group employees to be covered with a sanctioned strength of nearly 38.6 lakh Central Government employees in the CGEGIS.

3.9            a) In LIC’s Jeevan Amar Life Term Assurance Plan (UIN: 512N332V01), for the assured sum of Rs. 50 Lakh at the entry age of 20, annual premium is Rs.4,356, at the entry age of 30,it is Rs. 6,952. (The sample illustrative premiums for Jeevan Amar life term assurance plan is attached as Annexure-I).

b) Even after adding for Saving Fund under CGEGIS @ 3 times of the premium for Life Term Assurance Plan, the total amount of subscription for CGEGIS will be less than half of the monthly subscription proposed by the LIC and by the 7th CPC.

c) Monthly Subscription can be reduced by 20% when the scheme is applied for more than 30 lakh employees as a Group as per details given in Table-2, based on the Premium for Individual Term Insurance indicated in Table 1 below:-

4.3        Ratio of the Insurance Fund and Saving Fund should be 25% : 75% respectively.

4.4        In case of retirement, employees be paid a maturity benefit in proportion to the subscription, length of service and applicable interest rates.

4.5        The CGEGIS should continue to be handled by the Government as here to for.

4.6        The proposal to tie up with LIC should be dropped forthwith especially keeping in view the drawbacks in the proposal of LIC, as enlisted earlier in this letter,

4.7        The Revised Scheme, drawn after consideration of the above proposals, may please be discussed with the JCM Staff Side, and be finalised early as the revision thereof has already been delayed for too long.

Hoping for an early favourable decision on the long pending issue is solicited
