Measures taken by the Govt. to overcome the Inconvenience caused to Beneficiaries due to Shift in Treatment Policy of CGHS

Press Information Bureau

Measures taken by the Govt. to overcome the Inconvenience caused to Beneficiaries due to Shift in Treatment Policy of CGHS

With a view to plug the loopholes in the system, the Government decided on 25.8.2014 that only CGHS formulary medicines and those approved by Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) in India would be provided to beneficiaries under CGHS. The maximum period of issued medicines was also curtailed to one month instead of three months. It was decided ibid that only listed investigations/treatments at prescribed CGHS rates would be allowed.

The following measures have since been taken to overcome the inconvenience caused to the beneficiaries due to this shift in policy:

(i) The Government decided to adopt formularies of Ex- Servicemen Contributory Health Scheme (ECHS) and Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) also in addition to the existing CGHS formulary.
(ii) A technical committee under Chairmanship of Special DG has been constituted to consider inclusion/exclusion of medicines/ investigation/treatment/procedures /implant etc.

(iii) A Group of experts has been constituted on 25.9.2014 to review CGHS formulary to avoid denial of essential medicines to CGHS beneficiaries and revising the formulary.

(iv) Instructions have also been issued to CMOs In-charge vide Office Memorandum No. 2-2/2014/CGHS/PPT/CGHS-P dated 1.10.2014 to use their discretion to supply essential medicines to CGHS beneficiaries even though they do not figure in the formularies of CGHS/ECHS/ESIC.
(v) The Government also extended further relaxation to the beneficiaries by switching back to the previous arrangement regarding time period of issued medicines i.e. 3 months for chronic disease and 6 months in case of visit abroad.

Swachh Bharat Kosh Operational Guidelines, 2014

DA Merger and Interim Relief to be discussed in the National Convention of NC JCM Meeting


Date : 17.11.2014
All Office Bearers and Working Committee Members,
Sub: Holding of National Convention of the National Council (JCM) Staff Side – reg.
Ref: National Council (JCM) Staff Side circular No.NC.JCM/2014/SC Dated 25.10.2014
Dear Colleagues,
National Council (Staff Side) JCM for Central Government employees demanded and submitted a memorandum on Interim Relief and Merger of DA to the 7th CPC and also to the Ministry of Fiance. A reply has been received by the Secretary (Staff Side) National Council (JCM) from Ministry of Finance which is indicative of a refusal of both the demands. The 7th CPC have so far not communicated to us the decision they have taken on the memorandum submitted by the Staff Side, National Council (JCM).
The NDA Government has adopted the same plea made by the UPA II Government to reject our demands.
From the steps so far taken by the BJP Government, it is unambiguous that they would be pursuing the neo-liberal economic policies with much more intensity than even the UPA Government. Having got a clear majority in the Parliament, they would be able to push through necessary legislations to pursue reforms. The outsourcing of Railway functions, privatisation/Corporatisation of Defence manufacturing units, increased FDI inflow in various core sectors of economy, dismantling of the administrative price mechanism, de-nationalisation efforts in the Banking, Insurance and coal sectors and above all the adherence to New Contributory Pension Scheme are some of the bold anti-workers steps taken by the New Government.
The National Council (Staff Side) when they met during October, 2014 at New Delhi it was unanimous opinion to pursue the issues through organizational methods. Accordingly, it was decided to hold a NATIONAL CONVENTION, eliciting the participation of the representatives of all Service organisations participating in the JCM to discuss the emerging situation and decide upon future course of action. Incidentally, we must mention that the JCM conceived as a negotiating forum has been made in-effective by the Government over the years by not convening its meetings periodically.
It was decided that the National Council Convention will be held at
Venue : MPCU Shah Auditorium, Sree Gujarati Samaj, Raj Niwas Road, Civil lines (Opposite Civil lines Metro Station), Delhi
Date : 11th December, 2014 from 12 noon to 16oo hrs.
150 Delegates from Defence Federations (INDWF and AIDEF) are permitted to participate.
Around 75 Delegates from INDWF have to participate and therefore all the Office Bearers and Working Committee members are invited to participate in the convention. Those who are participating are required to intimate to the undersigned so that the DelegatePasses/Badges on their names will be arranged to participate in the convention.
Treat this as an important matter which will decide the issues of 7th CPC (merger of DA and IR) as well as present trend of the New Government on the future of Central Government Employees particulars about Defence Civilian Employees.
Yours Sincerely,
General Secretary
