11.06.09

AIFUCTO President Prof. Thomas Joseph and General Secretary Prof. Asok Barman have welcomed the issue of the pay revision fitment table by MHRD,Govt. of India and expressed their strong reservations against the provision of the fitment table which is at variance with the notification of MHRD dated 31-12-2008. The fitment table order has denied one bunching benefit to all teachers in selection grade/reader designation. AIFUCTO has demanded that the anomaly be corrected immediately, failing which AIFUCTO will be compelled to respond by direct action.

AIFUCTO also demanded that all state governments immediately implement the new pay scales in accordance with the MHRD notification dated 31-12-2008. The leaders pointed out that the scales have already been implemented in central universities and that state level implementation is already long overdue .AIFUCTO warned that the teachers would resort to agitational action if there is any further delay in the implementation of scales in the states.

The National Executive Committee of AIFUCTO which is scheduled to meet at Shillong on 6.7.2009 will review the status of implementation and decide on the appropriate form of action to be resorted to at the central and state levels for the rectification of anomalies and implementation of the scales

Government have proposed to introduce a new "Central Government Employees & Pensioners Health Insurance Scheme" for all serving & retired employees

with 1 comment
Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India have proposed to introduce a new "Central Government Employees & Pensioners Health Insurance Scheme" (CGEPHIS) for all serving employees and pensioners.

Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) is a scheme for providing health care to serving Central Government employees and their dependant family members. Over the years, the scheme has been extended to cover central government pensioners, their dependant family members and certain other categories like members of parliament and ex-members of parliament, freedom fighters etc. Employees of some select autonomous bodies as also PIB accredited journalists have also been extended CGHS facilities on cost-to-cost basis in Delhi. Central Government Health Scheme is available in 25 cities [Delhi (including Noida, Gurgaon, Faridabad, and Ghaziabad), Ahemdabad, Allahabad, Bangalore, Bhopal, Bhubaneshwar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Dehradun, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jabalpur, Jaipur, Jammu, Kanpur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Meerut, Mumbai, Nagpur, Patna, Pune, Ranchi, Shillong and Thiruvanthapuram]. Central Government Employees living outside the CGHS areas are entitled to reimbursement for medical attendance and treatment under the Central Services (Medical Attendance) Rules [CS(MA) Rules]. Pensioners of the Central Government are not covered under these rules. At present, Central Government Pensioners living in non-CGHS areas are paid a sum of Rs. 100 p.m. for meeting their medical expenditure. Consequently, there has been a long standing demand from Central Govt. pensioners residing in non CGHS areas for medical services at par with those available to Central Govt. pensioners in CGHS areas. The VIth Pay Commission has recommended the introduction of a health insurance scheme in lieu of the CGHS.
Government of India, therefore, proposes to provide inpatient health care services to their all personnel of the Central Government including All India Service officers, serving and retired, and others who are covered under the existing CGHS (Central Government Health Services) and under CS (MA) Rules [Central services (Medical attendance) Rules] through a Health Insurance Scheme catering to their health care requirements. The proposed scheme shall be on voluntary basis for current set of employees & pensioners but compulsory for future employees & pensioners. The existing CGHS beneficiaries will have an option to avail CGHS facilities for OPD requirements and the insurance scheme for inpatient treatment.
With the introduction of health insurance scheme, the Central Government Employee (existing/ retired) will have the choice to select the best available health facilities for meeting their health care and can get best available treatment in areas in the close proximity.
Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India invites Expressions of Interest from Insurers and Health Insurance consultants for the proposed scheme.
NAME OF THE SCHEME
The name of the proposed scheme is Central Government Employees & Pensioners Health Insurance Scheme (CGEPHIS).
BENEFICIARIES
All personnel of the Central Government including All India Service officers, serving, newly recruited, retired and retiring and others who are covered under the existing CGHS(Central Government Health Services) and under CS (MA) [Central Services (Medical Attendance) Rules] Rules shall be offered Health Insurance Scheme on voluntary or on compulsorily basis . This could be:
CGEPHIS shall be compulsory to new Central Government Employees who would be joining service after the introduction of the health Insurance Scheme.
CGEPHIS shall be compulsory to new Central Government retirees who would be retiring from the service after the introduction of the Insurance Scheme.
CGEPHIS would be available on voluntary basis for the existing Central Government Employees and pensioners serving in CGHS area/ covered by CGHS. In this case such serving Central Government Employees and Central Government existing Pensioners shall have to opt out of CGHS scheme. They will also have the option of choosing both CGHS and Insurance policy. In such case the total premium has to be born by the beneficiary.
CGEPHIS would also be available on voluntary basis for the existing serving employees and pensioners in non-CGHS areas not covered by CGHS. In this case such serving Central Government Employees and existing Pensioners (who have opted for CGHS facility) shall have to opt out of CGHS scheme. They will also have the option of choosing both CGHS and Insurance policy. In such case the total premium has to be born by the beneficiary.
