CASE FILED

Dear friends,

      A case for the upgradation of the grade pay of LDC to Rs. 2400 has been filed before the CAT Jabalpur by this Association. Since UDC is a promotion post of LDC, the grade pay of the UDC would automatically go up. However, this Association is thinking to file a separate case for granting of Rs. 4200/ Grade pay to UDCs. The case of Steno Grade III (Rs. 2400 GP) is similar to UDC and as such a mention of their name has also been made in the table submitted.

      Copy of the case filed will be published in this web site in an appropriate time.

With warm greetings

Credit to CGHS Beneficiaries in Empanelled Private Hospitals to Continue


 PIB NEWS     -     19.3.14
                   Credit to CGHS Beneficiaries in Empanelled Private Hospitals to Continue


There have been reports in the Media that private hospitals on the panel of CGHS are denying credit facilities to the eligible CGHS beneficiaries for delay in settlement of hospitals bills. Lower package rates and inadmissible deductions etc. have also been reported to be the other reasons for withdrawal of agreed cashless /credit facilities.

24 out of 407 Private hospitals empanelled under CGHS decided unilaterally to discontinue credit facility to the eligible categories of CGHS beneficiaries. Show Cause Notices stand issued to these Hospitals and the empanelment of five Hospitals has been suspended for a period of six months or till further orders, whichever is earlier.

In this regard, the CGHS beneficiaries are advised not to be guided by misleading information as most of the private hospitals are continuing to extend the cashless facilities to the CGHS beneficiaries. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare will ensure that the CGHS empanelled private hospitals continue to extend cashless /credit facilities to the eligible CGHS beneficiaries in compliance with the terms and conditions as laid down in the Memorandum of Agreement signed by them with CGHS. Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has already taken special steps for clearance of pending hospital bills on a priority basis and the pendency of bills is almost cleared.

CGHS has already invited bids for revision of package rates through a transparent tender process, where the last date for submission of bids was 16th March, 2014. Steps are underway to conclude the tender process early.

WITH YOUR CO-OPERATION..

FILING OF CASE IN THE CAT FOR THE UPGRADATION OF GRADE PAY OF LDC & UDC-REGARDING

Dear friends,

          As has already published in our web site earlier, a case for the upgradation of LDC & UDC has to be filed in the Principle CAT Delhi by 1st week of March. But due to our inconvenience to file a case at Principle CAT at this moment, the Association has decided to file the said case in the CAT Jabalpur. Consequently, the date of filing of the case is shifted to 4th week of March. In this respect, I had visited the lawyer at Jabalpur twice and finally I am visiting Jabalpur in the 4th week to file the case. Anyhow, it will be filed in the 4th week itself and immediately after receipt of a copy, the same will be published in our web site.   I request you to please continue the co-operation and encouragement that given to us so far so that the fight for the upgradation of the Grade pay of LDC & UDC w.e.f. 1.1.2006 may be continued.

With regards

Extension of CGHS facilities to retired BSNL employees

File No: 4-12(11)12012-PAT
Government of India
Department of Telecommunications
Sanchar Bhawan, 20, Ashoka Road,
New Delhi-110001
Dated: 20-2-2014
To,

The Chairman and Managing Director,
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited,
Bharat Sanchar Bhawan
H.C. Mathur Lane Janpath,
New Delhi-11001

Subject:- Extension of CGHS facilities to retired BSNL employees.

Sir,

Reference is invited to BSNL’s letter Nos.BSNL/Admn-I/14-15/9(pt.) dated 09.04.2012 and dated 11.1.2013 regarding extension of CGHS facilities to retired BSNL employees. The matter has been examined in consultation with the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and it has been decided that :-

i) The retired employees, who are in receipt of Central Civil Pension/Pro-rata pension only from Central Civil Estimates are eligible for joining CGHS, other retired employees of BSNL are not eligible for CGHS.

ii) Since CGHS is in operation only at 25 select locations in the country, the retired employees of BSNL who are in receipt of Central Civil Pension and therefore eligible for CGHS facilities, may also be considered for providing with an option to choose either CGHS or BSNL-MRS post retirement as per their convenience, in recognition of their services rendered to DoT / BSNL.

2. However, it may be noted that the retired BSNL employees who opt for CGHS would have to pay the requisite fee to CGHS as applicable to Government retirees.

3. This issues with the approval of Secretary (T).

Yours faithfully

NO WITHDRAWAL OF CGHS CASHLESS SCHEME - HEALTH MINISTRY’S PRESS NOTE:



Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Ministry of Health and Family Welfare
07-March-2014 
PRESS NOTE

            There have been reports in the Media that private hospitals on the panel of CGHS are denying credit facilities to the eligible CGHS beneficiaries for delay in settlement of hospitals bills. Lower package rates and inadmissible deductions etc. have also been reported to be the other reasons for withdrawal of agreed cashless /credit facilities.

            In this regard, the CGHS beneficiaries are advised not to be guided by such misleading information. Delay in payments in the last quarter of the financial year due to budgetary constraints is not a new phenomenon and the hospitals are aware of it. Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has taken special steps and the pendency is likely to be cleared within a week.

            CGHS has already invited bids for revision of package rates through a transparent tender process. The last date for submission of bids is 10th March, 2014. Measures have also been taken to streamline the payment related issues in the ensuing empanelment process.


            The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare will ensure that the CGHS empanelled private hospitals continue to extend cashless /credit facilities to the eligible CGHS beneficiaries in compliance with the terms and conditions as laid down in the Memorandum of Agreement signed by them with CGHS. As per the information received by the Ministry, most of the private hospitals are continuing to extend the cashless facilities to the CGHS beneficiaries.

POSITION AFTER 8 YEARS OF IMPLEMENTATION OF 7TH CPC

ALL INDIA ASSOCIATION OF ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF (NG)

MINISTRY OF STATISTICS & PROGRAMME IMPLEMENTATION
Web site: aiamshq.blogspot.in

Hall No. 201 & 205, Vijay Stumbh,
Zone I, MaharanaPratap Nagar,
No. Assn/1/2014/GS                                                         Dated 10/03/2014
  
To

            The Secretary,
            Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation,
            New Delhi-110001


Sub:    1. Non implementation of cadre restructuring of Administrative Staff in NSSO Offices   after long five years since start.
           2. Large number of posts of Assistant is lying vacant in NSSO Offices due to not taking up the merger of the posts of Office Superintendents & Assistants after a lapse of long 8 years since 6th CPC.
          3. Posts of Administrative Officers are lying vacant very long for want of recruitment rules for the post.
           
Sir,
            This Association had written a letter to your office vide letter No. Assn/2/2012/GS             Dated 23/07/2012 to apprise the inordinate delay in implementation of cadre restructuring of Administrative Staff in NSSO Offices thereby bringing you the disappointment of the Staff shouldering heavy responsibilities of Administrative Officers in the NSSO Offices retiring on the post of UDC/Assistants without getting any pay parity (copy enclosed). Thereafter, I have contacted the concerned authorities in the Ministry several times and explained the miseries of the Administrative Staff of the NSSO Offices carrying higher responsibilities without getting a matching pay scale. But despite of a lapse of 1 year and 9 months after the submission of the aforesaid letter no significant development in the implementation of the Cadre restructuring has been taken place.

            It is worth mentioning here that this is the only cadre restructuring for Administrative Staff which has been initiated by the Ministry since the very inception of the NSSO. But unfortunately the maiden Cadre restructuring itself has not reached anywhere even after 5 years from its initiation.

 2.         Non filling of vacancies of Assistant.

            Large number of posts of Assistant is lying vacant in FOD Offices where UDCs are discharging duties of Assistant in addition to their own duties as UDC without any additional remuneration and forced to retire on the post itself. FOD has informed that vacant post of Assistant is not being filled up due to the pending merger of the posts of Office Superintendent and Assistant. In the Regional Offices of FOD Office Superintendent with Gazetted status were functioning as Section Officer and DDO and on the ground a request for upgradation of the OS post to the Section Officer was made by this Association immediately after implementation of the 6th Pay Commission. But the same was not considered by the Ministry. And yet, merging of these two posts has not taken place even after 8 years of implementation of 6th CPC. This has largely affected career of the UDC and LDCs of the FOD.

3.         Non filling of vacancies of Administrative Officer.

            Majority of the posts of Administrative Officer, sanctioned in the FOD Offices has been lying vacant for the reason that the recruitment rule for the post of Administrative Officer has not been finalized. The initiation for change of recruitment rule for the post would have been started immediately after the implementation of the Pay Commission. But it pains to note that after 8 years of implementation of the Pay Commission the recruitment rule for the post has not been modified and due to this only reason, the person qualified to get promoted to the post of AO are suffering.

            It is requested to please take a favorable action on the matter immediately.

Yours faithfully
