Sub: Renewal of CGHS plastic cards In Delhi NCR – regarding.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Ministry’s O.M No. S 11011/1/2014-CGHS (P) dated 10.02.2014 vide which fresh instructions were Issued supplementing the existing guidelines on the issue of CGHS Plastic cards. In this regard attention is also drawn to this Ministry’s O.M. No. Misc. 6024/2007/CGHS(HQ)/CGHS(p) dated 27.12.2010 in respect of pensioner CGHS beneficiaries vide which it was clarified that :-
“The Plastic Cards (which are identity cards), would hereinafter be issued with validity till the pensioner beneficiary is entitled for CGHS benefits. In respect of pensioner CGHS beneficiaries, who have paid CGHS contribution for ‘Rest of Life’ CGHS facilities, the Plastic Cards would, hereinafter, be issued for ‘Rest of Life’.

The plastic cards already issued with a printed vahdity of five years to pensioner beneficiaries, who had paid CGHS contributions for ‘Rest of Life’ CGHS facilities, would be taken as valid for use for ‘Rest at Life’. However, such CGHS pensioner beneficiaries have the option to obtain new plastic cards after five
years, if they choose to do so.”

2. Accordingly, the CGHS pensioner beneficiaries have the option to apply for new CGHS plastic card which are now being issued with validity for ‘whole life’ printed on the plastic card Itself. However, the serving employees are issued CGHS plastic cards with validity of five years and they are due for renewal every five years on expiry of validity period indicated on their CGHS plastic card. Fresh cards are being issued in place of old cards on regular basis. Since the applications are being received for renewal of old cards in a very large number, It has created bottleneck and it is taking some time to issue fresh cards.

3. In light of the above, with a view to avoid inconvenience to the CGHS beneficiaries and to facilitate them in availing CGHS services, it has been decided to allow them to access CGHS facilities with the old cards for a further period of six months from the date of expiry of CGHS cards as indicated on their CGHS Plastic cards. However, they have to apply for renewal of CGHS plastic card in the prescribed Form as provided in this Ministry’s OM dated 10.02.2014 as referred to above.

4 In this connection, it is clarified that the beneficiaries  who have already submitted applications for renewal of CGHS cards on expiry of their validity period and have so far not received fresh CGHS cards, they will not be denied CGHS facilities, provided the beneficiary is entitled to CGHS benefits as per CGHS guidelines.

5. A CGHS beneficiary Is required to apply for new CGHS plastic cards three months In advance or within six months of expwy of validity of the plastic cards and it Is recommended to keep a copy of the same as a proof of submission of application for renewal of card which can be produced on demand before the CGHS authorities, if required, for availing the CGHS benefits on the basis of old card.

6. CGHS Weilness Centres will provide the medic facilities to CGHS beneficiaries on the basis of old CGHS plastic card upto a maximum period of six months from the date of validity as indicated on the CGHS plastic card after due verification of the entitlement and validity of CGHS card as per CGHS data base.

7. The CGHS empanelled private hospitals / diagnostic centres are requested to provide the medical facilities on the basis of old card upto a maximum period of six months from the date of validity as indicated on the CGHS plastic card, subject to the condition that the CGHS beneficiary has submitted the application for renewal of CGHS plastic card, complete in all respect, to the CGHS card issuing authority.

8. This OM shall come into effect from the date of issue and will remain in force for one year or till further order, whlchever is earlier.

7th PAY COMMISSION - Central Government Employees News

7th PAY COMMISSION - Central Government Employees News

7th CPC – STEP 1
The Prime Minister of India gave consent to the formation of 7th CPC on 25-09-2013.

Finance Minister P. Chidambaram announced that the Prime Minister has formally given his consent to the formation of the 7th CPC. Announcement was also made that it would be implemented on 01.01.2016.
Usually, not only employees, news agencies also would start guessing when the announcement would be declared. But this time, there were no such speculations. It has become clear that the Government’s decision and the date of announcement of 7th CPC are being kept secret.

The sudden announcement had caught everybody by surprise. There is no doubt about the fact that it was a pleasant surprise to all Central Govt Employees…!

7th CPC – STEP 2
Prime Minister of India gave his consent to the Composition of 7th CPC.

On 04-02-2014, Finance Minister P Chidambaram announced that the Prime Minister has given his approval to the composition of the 7th CPC. With the formation of a four member committee, led by Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur, the 7th CPC moved to the next stage.
With the Confederation announcing a strike on the 10th and 11th of this month, and with all the major Federations of Central Govt Employees and also Railways in the country declaring their intention to protest to central government, the move is being viewed by many as Government’s attempt to pacify.
7th CPC – STEP 3
Cabinet gives its approval to the 7th CPC Terms of Reference

On 28.02.2014, the Central cabinet clearly explained and gave its approval to the Terms of Reference of 7th Central Pay Commission.

One of the salient features was that the Commission has to present its recommendations to the Government within 18 months, and, if required, also submit an Interim Report.
There was no word about the much-anticipated Interim Relief and DA Merger.
