Govt rejects demand for higher Fixed Medical Allowance to Central Govt Pensioners:

Appeal for revision of fixed medical allowance for the Central Govt. Pensioners:

No.4/4/2013-P&PW (D)

3rd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhawan
New Delhi-110 003.
Dated the 8th July, 2013

Shri Harchandan Singh, Secretary General,
32, Phase-6,

Sub:- Appeal for revision of fixed medical allowance for the Central Govt. Pensioners.

Please refer to your letter dated 23/6/13 on the above mentioned subject. Comments item concerning this Desk is as under:

2. The Govt. had on the recommendation of the 5th Central Pay Commission sanctioned Fixed Medical Allowance (FMA) @ Rs.100 p.m. as in the year 1997. After 6th Central Pay Commission this amount was raised to Rs.300 p.m. w.e,f. 1/9/2008. The demand for further enhancement of FMA was raised during the meeting with representatives of staff side (JCM) on pensionary matters held on 18/5/11. The demand has been examined in great detail. In view of the fact that the FMA was increased three-fold from Rs.100 to Rs.300 p.m. in May, 2010 (effective from 1stSeptember 2008) at a substantial cost to the exchequer, any further upgraded increase in FMA at this stage may not be appropriate given the constraint on the fiscal side. Govt. is in the interim, also contemplating introduction of Central Govt. Employees and Pensioners Health Insurance Scheme to meet the health care requirement of Central Govt. employees and pensioners. Therefore, the demand for any enhancement of FMA cannot be accepted at this juncture.

Yours faithfully,
(Deepa Anand)
Under Secretary to the Govt. of India

    to me
    Mr. S.K. Vyas. Hope you are also a retired central govt employee. But hope availing medical treatment form AIIMS or other famous private hospitals recognized for treatment to central govt employees, families and pensioners who are residing in CGHS areas. So you simply ignored the persons like me who are residing away from CGHS areas. I recollect I wrote about it to you years back. Those who are residing out of the CGHS areas may be allowed to have medical treatment both in patient and OP as in the case ex. servicemen to whom many private hospitals are recognized and the treatment is known as cashless. Same hospitals may be recognized for treatment to central govt pensioners too and their families since both of them are paid from central budget. I hope you may take up this point also to 7thCPC. CGHS is functioning far way and who fell ill may not be possible to reach CGHS dispensary to get treatment. It will be better to go to Govt hospitals and stand on Q as others.
