Subject:-Extension of CGHS facilities to retired BSNL employees.

Reference is invited to BSNL’s letter Nos.BSNL/Admn-I/14-15/9(pt.) dated 09.04.2012 and dated 11.1.2013 regarding extension of CGHS facilities to retired BSNL employees. The matter has been examined in consultation with the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and it has been decided that :-

i) The retired employees, who are in receipt of Central Civil Pension/Pro-rata pension only from Central Civil Estimates are eligible for joining CGHS, other retired employees of BSNL are not eligible for CGHS.

ii) Since CGHS is in operation only at 25 select locations in the country, the retired employees of BSNL who are in receipt of Central Civil Pension and therefore eligible for CGHS facilities, may also be considered for providing with an option to choose either CGHS or BSNL-MRS post retirement as per their convenience, in recognition of their services rendered to DoT / BSNL.

2. However, it may be noted that the retired BSNL employees who opt for CGHS would have to pay the requisite fee to CGHS as applicable to Government retirees.

3. This issues with the approval of Secretary(T).

Yours faithfully
(Sanjay Agrawal)
