There is no proposal to extend the CGHS (Central Government Health Scheme) facility to the teachers teaching in Government Schools – Minister replies in Parliament
A question was raised in Rajya Sabha on 10th December 2019 regarding the entitlement of the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) to Government school teachers.
The minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Shri Ashwini Kumar Choubey said in written reply as follows…
“CGHS facility is available to all Central Government employees and pensioners residing in areas covered under the scheme. Their dependent family members are also eligible to avail the facilities under the scheme.
Central Government Health Scheme is primarily meant for Central Government employees and pensioners, Hon’ble Members of Parliaments, ex-Members of Parliament and their dependents. Only few other categories of beneficiaries like Hon’ble Chief Justice of India, Judges and former Judges of Supreme Court of India and former Judges of High Court, etc., and some Autonomous Bodies (on cost to cost basis) have been extended CGHS facility under the scheme“.
