Govt. Servant responsible for Deletion of the name of an ineligible Dependent

Govt. Servant responsible for Deletion of the name of an ineligible Dependent

The undersigned is directed to state that in accordance with the definition of ‘family’ mentioned in Ministry of Health Memo. No. F.6(1) 1-54-H, dated the Ist May, 1954 the family of a beneficiary for the purpose of CGHS scheme includes husband/wife of the CGHS card-holder, as the case may be, wholly dependent children or step-children and parents, who are mainly dependent on and residing with the Government Servant. While it is incumbent upon the card issuing. Authorities, i.e. various departments and offices participating in the scheme, to ensure that the names of only genuine and eligible persons are included in the CGHS token cards, it is the responsibility of the employees concerned to apply for a deletion of the name of the dependent from the CGHS card, when the ward is no more entitled to the benefit eligible under the scheme. The failure on the part of a cardholder to get the name of a child deleted from the CGHS token-card when he is no more dependent on him is a good and sufficient reason for initiating disciplinary proceedings against him in terms of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965.

All Ministers/Departments of the Government of India are requested kindly to ensure that the above said provisions are complied with fully. These instructions may also be brought to the notice of all employees concerned.

Opting out of the C.G.H. Scheme

It is to be ensured that neither of the two nor their family members avail medical facilities from both the sources at the same time and for this purpose, the concerned Central Government employee shall give an undertaking to the authority issuing the CGHS Card.

Re-admission under CGHS after ‘opting out’
Such Government Servants, who have opted out of CGHS, may apply for readmission and avail the benefit of CGHS in case their spouse dies or resigns or is dismissed from the office/organization, which provided medical facilities.

Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen - AIRF

Bonus (PLB) for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen - AIRF

Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen - Com. Shiva Gopal Mishra writes DO to Chairman Rly. Board
No.AIRF/387
Dated: September 7, 2017
The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen

Ref.: Meeting with the AM(Staff), Railway Board held on 04.08.2017

Please refer to our discussion held in the chamber of AM(Staff), Railway Board, on the above subject matter on 4th August, 2017. All India Railwaymen’s Federation(AIRF) has already explained in detail its viewpoint in respect of calculation formula for payment of PLB to Railwaymen.

You may recall that, PLB has been an outcome of the bilateral agreement between Ministry of Railways and Staff Side Federations, which was arrived at on 22.11.1979. The formula for calculation of PLB, that was formulated as a result of above-mentioned agreement, is sacrosanct, on the basis of which payment of PLB is being made to entitled railway employees every year till last financial year.

AIRF is totally against any deviation in the well settled formula devised to calculate PLB payable to railway employees under the said agreement.

It is, therefore, urged that, payment of PLB for financial year 2016-17 should be made on the basis of established formula as mentioned above and there should not be any effort to make any amendment in the same as also number of days, calculated last year for payment of PLB, should not be reduced, else this will lead to unwarranted impairment in industrial peace.

Yours faithfully,

Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 - NFIR

Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to be paid in the current year 2017-reg.

No.I/10/Part IV
Dated: 08/09/2017
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to be paid in the current year 2017-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2017/PLB-3 dated 02/08/2017.

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to the discussions held on 4th August, 2017 in the Chamber of Additional Member (Staff), wherein the Federation has explained the need to accord approval for payment if Productivity Linked Bonus equivalent to not less than 78 days wages as was done in the previous years.

NFIR again places the facts as below for immediate action for sanction:-
  • The output given by Railway employees has been very much on high side particularly in the context of non-filling of over 2 lakh vacancies and additional burden borne by the existing staff since the last two years.
  • Capital input should not be taken into consideration as the utilization of the said capital is not in the hands of workers.
  • During the previous six years, the PL Bonus was paid to the Railway employees equivalent to 78 days wages, therefore any reduction in number of days would cause serious resentment in view of the fact that Rail Workforce has been contributing for productivity inspite of difficult working conditions and heavy shortage of staff due to non-filling of vacancies and non-creation of new posts for new assets built.
  • In fact, the Railway Ministry should consider motivating the staff by granting more number of days wages than previous year at this juncture.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly take action for sanctioning the P.L. Bonus equivalent to not less than 78 days wages. It is also requested that payment may be arranged before commencement of Dussehra Pooja Holidays.

Federation may be kept apprised of the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully

(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
