Opening of CGHS centres at district locations or designate already functional Government hospitals in district headquarters as CGHS Centres
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
2.17 The Committee is in agreement with the views of Pensioners’ Associations that CGHS should not confine its operations to metro cities, state capitals and a few large urban centres only. The Government may explore opening of CGHS centres at district locations or designate already functional Government hospitals in district headquarters as CGHS Centres to provide treatment to CGHS beneficiaries. The Government may also include settlement of medical facility related grievances of pensioners on the portal of CPENGRAMS as requested by pensioners and the DoPPW should work in tandem with Health Ministry in this regard. (3.20)
2.18 Inter-departmental consultations with Ministry of Health & Family Welfare will be held in this regard.
2.19 The Committee takes note of the reply and expects the Department to pursue the matter actively.
