Payment of Transport Allowance to Central Government Employees posted in offices located at Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Gurgaon, and Noida Dated 7th March, 2014
Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Ministry of Health and Family Welfare
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.

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
Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation,
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.
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.
1. Hon’ble The Minister, Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation, Sardar Patel Bhawan, Sansad Marg, New Delhi for his personal intervention on the matter.
2. The Director General, NSSO, Sardar Patel Bhawan, New Delhi.
3. The Additional Director General, NSSO (FOD), New Delhi.

Sub: - Terms of Reference of the 7th Central Pay Commission.
We have gone through the Terms of Reference of 7th Central Pay Commission approved and notified by the Government on 28.02.2014. We find that the Terms of Reference finalized by the Government is at variance in many respects to the Draft Terms of Reference the Staff Side had submitted to you on 25.10.2013 after holding in-house discussion on 24.10.2013.
At the conclusion of the meeting held on 24.10.2013, it was agreed that the Government would consider our suggestions in the matter and will convene another meeting with the presence of the Secretary (Expenditure) to iron out the differences, if any, and explore the possibilities of an agreement in the matter.
We regret to inform you that no such meeting was convened and no attempt was made by the Official Side to arrive at an agreed Terms of Reference. We find that the Government has rejected the suggestions of Staff side for either taking a decision in the matter of Interim Relief, Merger of DA, representation of labour nominee in the Commission itself,inclusion of the Grameen Dak Sewaks within the purview of the 7th CPC, bringing parity in pension between the past and present pensioners, covering the employees appointed on or after 01.01.2004 within the ambit of the Defined Benefit Pension Scheme, date of effect, settlement of the pending items in the National Anomaly Committee etc. or referring those issues to the Commission itself for an Interim Report.
Besides, we are to state that the existing Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) Scheme, being a bilateral agreement, cannot be subjected to scrutiny and examination by the 7th CPC.
We, therefore request you to kindly convene a meeting of the Standing Committee of National Council (JCM) to discuss the issue, so as to make amendments to the Terms of Reference finalized by the Government arbitrarily.
