Requests from various institutions for the extension of CGHS facilities to their serving / retired employees.

The below information was stated by the Minister of Health and Family Welfare in Lok Sabha on 6th December in a written reply to a question about requests from various institutions to include in Central Government Health Scheme…

Government has been receiving requests from various institutions including Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) for the extension of CGHS facilities to their serving / retired employees. An illustrative list of institutions, who have requested for CGHS facilities, is at

Annexure.

Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) is primarily meant for the Central Government employees and pensioners drawing their salary / pension from Central Civil Estimates of Government of India. The Scheme is not available to the persons drawing their salary / pension from other sources. Although CGHS facilities have been extended to some statutory / autonomous bodies in the past, it is no more being extended to any new group of persons or organisation as a matter of policy. Government has expressed its inability to extend CGHS facilities any further to new institutions / organisations / Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) etc. on account of severe financial, logistic and human resources constraints. Moreover, it is primarily incumbent upon the autonomous / statutory bodies / PSUs to provide medical facilities to their employees by devising their own schemes as per their ways and means.
