The amount of premium shall be decided by the transparent process of bidding amongst the Insurance companies participating in the Scheme. In case of serving employees, the premium would be deducted by the Drawing & Disbursing Officer. In the case of pensioners, they would be required to authorize the Band branch from which they are drawing their pension, to deduct the insurance premium.
