Ref: Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India’s G.O.No.S.11011/10/2012- CGHS(P)/EHS dated 28.03.2017 .
Your kind attention is invited towards the above referred to O.M. dated 28″ March, 2017, wherein a condition of Minimum Qualifying Service of 10 years has been laid down for availing CGHS facilities for NPS covered pensioners.
In this connection, it would not be out of context to mention that, a substantial number of Gramin Dak Sewaks became regular employees of the Postal Department, crossing age of 50 years. All these GDSs, on having been regularized as Postal Employees after 50 years of age, are thus deprived of CGHS facilities on account of above-mentioned condition of minimum 10 years qualifying Service, as such, the said condition is uncalled for an irrational,
It is, therefore, requested that, the matter may please be looked into in the foregoing, and the same be dispensed with, So that, any regular Government Employee on Superannuation, may be NPS covered pensioners, should be allowed to avail CGHS facilities without any bar of Minimum Qualifying Service in the larger interest of justice.
