This refers to DoT O.M. No. 4-12(11 /2012-PAT(Part) dated 31 08.2016 and O.M. No. 4-12(12)/2018-PAT-Part (1) dated 01.07.2019 regarding CGHS facilities to pro-rata pensioners. In this regard, it is mentioned that the matter has been examined in consultation with Ministry of Health & Family Welfare In this regard, it is clarified that:
- The above mapping is applicable for the Combined Service Optees who retired from BSNL/MTNL with IDA pay scale.
- This mapping is not applicable for pro-rata pensioners who retired from DoT under CDA pay scale. Also, as per guidelines issued from Directorate of CGHS, MoHFW, ward entitlement is based on the last basic pay and CGHS subscription is based on the pay scale as mentioned in the Pension Payment Order (PPO) of a particular retiree. Accordingly, ward entitlement and CGHS subscription in case of pro-rata pensioners of BSNL/MTNL is to be decided based on last pay drawn in DoT before absorption, as mentioned in their respective PPO while retiring from DoT, Govt. of India. Hence, no mapping of IDA/CDA scale is required in case of pro-rata pensioners.
