Department of Health & Family Welfare

Dated : November 22 , 2010


OFFICE MEMORANDUM (Circular No. 1/2010)


Subject : Streamlining of functioning of CGHS dispensaries.

The question of streamlining the functioning of CGHS dispensaries has been engaging the attention of the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare for some time now. After considering the suggestions received from various quarters and after discussing the matter with officials of CGHS, it has been decided, as an initial measure, to streamline the functioning of CGHS dispensaries as below :-

(i) There is a need for officers and staff in CGHS dispensaries to further improve the delivery of service to CGHS beneficiaries. There should be a constant and conscious effort to redress most of the grievances and problems of these beneficiaries at the dispensary level so that there is no inconvenience caused to them forcing them to approach higher authorities for redressal of their grievances. The entire staff at the dispensary level have to ensure a polite, positive and responsible attitude to make the service delivery better. The CMO In-charge must make every effort to ensure this user friendly environment. Complaints of rude/impolite behavior need to be checked and stern action taken by CMOs (Incharge).

(ii) It is well established that CGHS beneficiaries need to be provided better service. Senior citizens/pensioners among the CGHS beneficiaries deserve special attention and response. It is re-iterated that senior citizens/pensioners need to be given out of queue treatment and service at each activity level. Despite repeated instructions in this regard, this system is generally not being enforced at the dispensary level. CMOs incharge must ensure compliance of these instructions.

(iii) CMOs In-charge of the dispensaries shall personally make rounds of the dispensary particularly during peak hours to ensure that there is proper environment and beneficiaries particularly pensioners/Senior Citizens are being treated promptly;

(iv) The Zonal Additional Directors/Joint Directors shall convene the meetings of Pensioners Associations once in two months alongwith CMOs (Incharge) without fail.

(v) A complaint/suggestion/feedback Box with details like number of complaints received and disposed etc. under a seal and lock will be kept at each dispensary and will be opened by the CMO In-charge in the presence of at least two members of the Advisory Committee when the Advisory Committee meeting is being held and necessary action taken by the Advisory Committee with regard to complaints/ suggestions/feedback thus received and, wherever required, the matter will be referred to higher authorities for necessary action.

(vi) All Zonal Additional Directors and Joint Directors shall conduct at least five surprise inspections of the dispensaries in Delhi and at least two in other cities in a month and report the outcome of the inspection indicating the areas such as punctuality, availability and behavior of officers/staff, special care for pensioners/Senior Citizens, deficit areas/complaints and also the good work done in each of the dispensaries inspected, by way of a confidential monthly d.o. letter to reach AS & DG (CGHS) without fail on or before 10th of the succeeding month;

(vii) It is seen that a large number of beneficiaries go to the dispensaries for taking repeat medicines. Authorization of repeat medicines will hereinafter be done by any of the CMOs, apart from the CMO In-charge, available in the dispensary;

(viii) The Zonal Additional Directors/Joint Directors will personally monitor and ensure that the empanelled hospitals etc. do adhere to the terms & conditions of MOAs. They will also supervise the services, if any, being provided by the private parties in their zones such as dialysis, dental services etc.

2. Director, CGHS and all Additional Directors/Joint Directors and CMOs In-charge are hereby directed to fully comply with the instructions contained in this Office Memorandum in both letter and spirit. Noncompliance shall be viewed seriously.

One Rank One Pension for ex-servicemen

with 0 Comment



One Rank One Pension for ex-servicemen

The Parliamentary Standing committee on Defence has urged the government to reconsider the demand of “One Rank One Pension” for the ex-servicemen.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defence (15th LOK SABHA) on 1st and 7th Reports reiterated that the Government should consider the issue of ‘One Rank One Pension’ afresh. Since the issue of One Rank One Pension was not accepted in the past and more recently the Cabinet Secretary’s Committee set up to consider it also did not recommend the same, it has not been found feasible to accept the demand of One Rank One Pension.

In the case of Original Application No. 15 and 45/2010 the Armed Forces Tribunal, Chandigarh had passed the order dated 3.3.2010 with directions to the respondents to take final decision in the matter.

The said order was examined and speaking orders explaining the position were issued on 10.07.2010 to the petitioners.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shri MM Pallam Raju in a written reply to Shri Vilas Muttemwar and others in Lok Sabha today.

Safety Related Retirement Scheme (SRRS) was introduced in January 2004 exclusively for two frontline safety categories i.e.. Drivers and Gangmen.

The ward of the employee seeking retirement under the scheme is considered for appointment in the respective category subject to fulfillment of eligibility / suitability etc. The existing scheme has been renamed as Liberalized Active Retirement Scheme for Guaranteed Employment for Safety Staff (LARSGESS) and will cover all safety categories including Gangman with grade pay of Rs. 1800/-.

Procedure Simplified for issue of Disability Certificate

with 1 comment



Procedure Simplified for issue of Disability Certificate

The Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Rules 1996 have been amended in December last year. The amended rules enable a simplified and decentralized procedure for issue of disability certificate. Disability certificate can now be issued by a single doctor in respect of obvious disabilities at the level Primary Health Centre (PHCs)/Government Medical Practitioner, Community Health Centres and Hospitals at the Sub-Divisional level. In case of non obvious disabilities, certificate can be issued by a specialist. Only in case of multiple disability, a Medical Board is required. Further, Medical Certificate is to be issued as far as possible within 7 days from the date of application but in any case not later than one month.

State Governments have also been requested to make similar amendments in their PwD Rules and notify their medical authorities accordingly.

A Committee consisting of representatives of various stake holders, experts in disabilities etc. has been set up in April this year to study the suggestions received from State Governments, concerned Central Ministries and several other sources on the proposed amendments to the PwD Act, 1995 and to prepare a new draft Legislation aligning it with the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

This information was given by Shri. D. Napoleon, the Minister of State for Social Justice & Empowerment, in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.

IRTSA proposes to demand Seventh Pay Commission for Revision of wage structure wef 1.1.2011

Proposal to Demand Setting up of Seventh Pay Commission

IRTSA proposes to demand Seventh Pay Commission - For Revision of wage structure wef 1.1.2011

IRTSA invites comments from its members & other visitors to irtsa.net on the following demand - proposed to be raised soon:

Seventh CPC for Revision of wage structure of Central Government employees should be set up forthwith - for a revision of wage structure with effect from 1.1.2011 - on following grounds:

i) Implementation of 6th CPC would complete 5 year period on 1-1-2011. Government has conceded to effect wage revision in the case of PSU employees after every five years. The same critiria of 5 years shoud be adoptd for revision of wages of Central Government Employees and Pensioners

ii) D.A component in the wages would exceed 50% wef January, 2011. But merger of DA is not proposed to be done at this stage (as in the past) due to retrograde recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission to the contrary.

iii) The disparity with PSUs & Corporate Sector have increased further since Sixth CPC - and will now further increase especially due to fast improvement in economy.

iv) Anomalies in Sixth CPC Report & its implementation cannot apparently be removed - except by a Pay Commission since the Government is not ready to agree on any of the major issues of concern.

Fixation of pay of re-employed pensioners - Treatment of Military service Pay

Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances 8 Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training


New Delhi, the 8th November 2010


Office Memorandum


Subject: Fixation of pay of re-employed pensioners -Treatment of Military service Pay

The undersigned is directed to refer to the orders issued vide OM dated 5.4.2010 on fixation of pay of re-employed pensioners. These orders inter-alia lay down that on re-employment in civilian organizations, Military Service Pay shall not be admissible. However, the benefit of MSP given to all retired Defence Forces officers/personnel by reckoning it at the time of calculation of their pension (notionally in the case of pre-1.1.2006 pensioners) should not be withdrawn. Accordingly, while the pension of such re-employed pensioners will include the element of MSP, they will not be granted MSP while working in civilian organizations.

In the instructions issued by the Ministry of Defence vide their letter No. 1/69/2008/D(Pay/Service) dated 24th July 2009, Pre-retirement pay has been defined as under:

(i) In respect of re-employment taking place onlor after 1.1.2006 pre-retirement pay for those who retired after 1.1.2006 means the pay in the pay band plus grade pay but inclusive of Non-Practicing Allowance (NPA) if any, last drawn before retirement.

(ii) In case of officers who retired before 1 .I ,2006 and also those who retired after 1.1.2006 in the pre-revised pay scales without opting for the revised pay scales promulgated on or after 1.1.2006 the pay will be basic pay including stagnating increment and Rank pay plus the Dearness pay and Dearness allowance drawn at the time of retirement.

As per these orders, for pre-2006 retirees rank pay is included as a part of pay but for post -2006 retirees, the MSP is not reckoned in the pre-retirement pay for the purposes of pay fixation on re-employment. However, for pension purposes the reckonable emoluments are - basic pay + grade pay + MSP + NPA wherever admissible. Therefore, while MSP is not taken into consideration for the purposes of pay fixation on re-employment, the element of MSP in pension is deducted.

It has been decided in consultation with the Department of Expenditure, that since the element of MSP is not reckoned in the pay fixation on re-employment, it need not be reduced from the pension either. Hence. In respect of all those Defence officers / personnel, whose pension contains an element of MSP, that need not be deducted from the pay fixed on re-employment.

EXPECTED DEARNESS ALLOWANCE (DA) FROM JAN-2011 FOR CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES...

with 18 comments


EXPECTED DEARNESS ALLOWANCE (DA) FROM JAN-2011 FOR CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES...

Expected DA from Jan 2011

The central government employees received 10% DA in addition to 35% earlier,which now stands at 45%.They got the payment as two months arrears for July and August.The DA for September was calculated in their regular monthly payments.Through this hike employees got an increase of Rs700 to Rs900 in their monthly salaries. There was no such increase before this.Let us see some of the reasons.

The main reason behind announcing DA is due to the increase of prices in essential commodities.’Labour Bureau’-which is under the central government takes the statistics of the prices of essential commodities in selected cities and this process is known as AICPIN -i.e.- All India Consumer Price Index. DA is calculated only as per the AICPIN.

Regarding the next instalment of DA which is to be announced from Jan 2011,numerous speculations are pouring in.The DA percentage will be calculated as per the AICPIN from September 2010 to December 2010.Suppose the AICPIN stands at 179 points or more,there are chances of getting 50% DA from Jan 2011.

Any way let us assume that the DA will surely cross the 50% which will enable increases in some allowances.

Children Education Allowance,Child Care Allowance,Washing Allowance,Cycle Allowance,Cash Handling Allowance,Conveyance Allowance,Split Duty Allowance will also be increased.

Workers eligible for interest on gratuity, rules Madurai Bench of HC

Workers eligible for interest on gratuity, rules Madurai Bench of HC

An employee becomes eligible for gratuity on the termination of his employment after he has rendered continuous service for not less than five years, according to Section 4(1) of the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972.

He is also entitled for interest on the gratuity in terms of Section 7(3) and 7(3A). Making these clear, the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court directed the Arumuganeri Salt Workers Co-operative Production and Sale Society Ltd, Thoothukkudi district, to pay the amount to its worker, Mr A. Rajan, within 30 days from date of receipt of a copy of this order without further driving him to any other forum.

Mr Justice K. Chandru, hearing a writ petition from the Society challenging the order dated January 27, 2009 of the Appellate Authority under the Act, Madurai (R-2), directing it to make interest payment if gratuity was not paid within 30 days from the date of his order, noted that from the beginning, it was the stand of the petitioner Society that R-1 (Mr A. Rajan) was not eligible for gratuity. If Sections 7(3) and 7(3A) were read together, then there was no difficulty in understanding the eligibility for receiving interest. In the present case, the Appellate Authority had correctly construed the legal provisions and there was no case made out to interfere with the interpretation placed by the Authority.

The petitioner contended that payment of interest would arise only when there was delayed payment, and in this case, there was no delay since they had paid gratuity as ordered by R-2, and hence the question of payment of interest would not arise. This Court was unable to accept the said statement, since the entire controversy was with regard to the legal provision.

Reading Section 4(1) of the Act it would be clear that the date relevant for determination of interest was the date on which gratuity became payable, which in the present case was when R-1 resigned his job on 1-6-2003. When R-1 issued notice for payment of gratuity, petitioner employer did not honour the notice. On the contrary, it was only when R-1 instituted a claim before the Controlling Authority, the petitioner contended about the irregular nature of his employment and his alleged disqualification from receiving gratuity.

In the light of these, the writ petition stood dismissed, the Judge held.
