Enhancement of Fixed Medical Allowance from Rs.1000 to Rs.3000 per month

RECOMMENDATIONS/OBSERVATIONS WHICH THE COMMITTEE DOES NOT DESIRE TO PURSUE IN VIEW OF THE REPLIES GIVEN BY THE MINISTRY

GRIEVANCES PERTAINING TO PENSION POLICY, PENSION STRUCTURE AND OTHER RETIREMENT BENEFITS

Recommendation/Observation

2.20 The Committee takes note of the fact that Fixed Medical Allowance is granted to pensioners who reside outside the CGHS areas for meeting expenditure on day-to-day medical expenses (OPD) that do not require hospitalization. The Committee also takes note of the request of Pensioners’ Associations for enhancement of Fixed Medical Allowance from Rs.1000 to Rs.3000 per month as most pensioners are suffering from different diseases at old age and are unable to manage with meager pension as CGHS hospital is not available in every town. The Committee recommends DoPPW to take up this issue of enhancement of Fixed Medical Allowance with the Finance Ministry as Rs.1000 is a very meager amount for an old age pensioner and apprise the views of the Finance Ministry to the Committee in its Action Taken Replies. (3.21)

Action Taken

2.21 DoPPW will take-up the issue of enhancement of Fixed Medical Allowance with the Finance Ministry

Further observation

2.22 The Committee takes note of the reply and expects the Department to pursue the matter actively.
