All Sections of Main Office.
All Sub-offices (As per standard list).
Subject:- CGHS deduction of officers and staff posted in DAD offices located in CGHS covered areas.
It may be noted that DAD officers and staff residing within 5km radius of the wellness centres located in the north-eastern cities of Guwahati, Shillong, Agartala, Aizawl, Imphal, Kohima (and others, if and when wellness centres are functional in other places) should mandatorily be included in Central Government Health Scheme-CGHS (unless specifically exempted due to other reasons-as per CGHS rules).
However, it has been noticed that contribution towards CGHS is not being deducted from some of the DAD employees posted in offices located in CGHS covered areas. Hence, it has been decided to start appropriate CGHS deduction from all officers and staff posted in offices located in CGHS covered areas from June 2019 subject to the following-
All the officers and staff posted in offices in CGHS covered region and eligible for exemption as per CGHS rules (due to place of residence being outside CGHS coverage or any other reason) may officially intimate to AN-Ill section of CDA Guwahati by 31st of May, 2019, indicating their place of residence (or documents validating exemption for any other reason), and submit original CGHS card/ surrender certificate ,in case of those who are already in possession of CGHS card, so that no deduction is made from their pay and allowances from June,2019 onwards. Such officers or staff would be treated as CS(MA) beneficiaries henceforth (until a change in residential address is indicated in future).
Moreover, all the officers and staff posted in CGHS covered region and who do not seek exemption from the CGH scheme are requested to apply for CGHS cards for all the eligible family members including self, so that they may avail the benefits of the CGH scheme.
