Criteria for Setting up of CGHS Dispensary 

The criteria fixed for setting up a Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) dispensary in a particular area are as under:

(i) In an existing CGHS city: For opening of a new Allopathic CGHS dispensary in an existing CGHS city, there has to be a minimum of 2,000 Card holders (serving employees of Central Government and Central Civil pensioners). 

(ii) Extension of CGHS to a new City: For extension of CGHS to a new city there has to be a minimum of 6,000 Card holders.

However, due to financial and other resource constraints it is not always possible to adhere to the above criteria.

Keeping in view the financial and other resource constraints, a decision has been taken  not to expand CGHS to cover new cities /areas. There are some States and UTs which do not have the presence of CGHS as yet. Accordingly, the Ministry has mooted a proposal to open at least one CGHS dispensary in the capital city of such States /UTs namely, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Manipur, Mizoram, Sikkim, Nagaland and Pudduchery. One dispensary is also proposed for the capital city of Gujarat.           In addition, there is also a proposal to open one CGHS dispensary in Indore in compliance of the High Court’s directions.

This was stated by Sh Ghulam Nabi Azad, Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare in a written reply to the Lok Sabha today.
