Fixed medical allowance claims have already been turned down by the Aadalat,on the grounds that the said element is applicable to the areas which are not covered by CGHS.The distinction between areas covered by CGHS and not covered by CGHS has to be got regularised with adequate guidelines with relevant OM from Health Ministry alone.
