Dear Comrades, Good evening. All of u aware that Com. D.Gopalakrishnan  CHQ VP, Com.Gangadhararao Our General Secretary, Com.Vittoban CHQ Treasurer had 4 day visit to NewDelhi and posted regarding their meeting with Minister, DOT SECRETARY, MEMBER FIN, DDG Est etc about Pension Revision. In addition to the above, they discussed the following  issues with DOT 

  1. To issue direction to CCA TN  to implement PAYMENT for 78.2 revision based on CAT Chennai judgement for  Extra increment without going for appeal 

 2.To issue direction to CCA to revise pension based on LPD for the Telecom Machanic cadre retirees without reduction of increment, which was being drawn for several years. Reducing the pay based on the executive order violating the statutory rules is in cirrect. They agreed to the suggestion of our leaders.

3.The case regarding reduction of increment to the executives who retired between July 2017 and April 2018. Our leaders suggested that their pension has to be revised like those who retired from May 2018. This partiality can be removed. Officers in DOT replied that they are aware of the issue.They agreed to resolve the issue. We hope that orders from DOT will be issued. We thank the CHQ  leaders for their sincere attempt.

 MEETING WITH CGHS INSPECTION TEAM

Dear Comrades,Good Afternoon. A team of doctors from the O/o Director CGHS Health Ministry New Delhi came to Chennai to have a surprise inspection of the wellness Centres located at Chennai. Information received by Com.V.Ramarao Circle President by 1030 hrs that they are at Guindy and will be visiting Meenambakkam next. Sri.V.Ramarao and Sri.Nagaraj Retd Defence Accounts are the committee members of Meenambakkam Welness centre. Sri.Ramarao asked me to accompany. One Dr.Pramod kumar from Delhi accompanied by one of the office bearers of Federation of Central Government Pensioners visited the wellness centre Meenambakkam. .He enquired us about the functioning of wellness centre and any improvement to be done. Enquired the patients about the problems come across by them. We submitted the copy of memorandum earlier given to Addl Director CGHS Chennai by AIBSNLPWA TN CIRCLE. Wherein We insisted the requirement  of enrolement of more Private Hospitals in Chennai. We also insisted for setting up of Wellness centre at Tambaram. We insisted for the revision of rate as the present rate is as per the MOU approved during 2014. One of the patient expressed his view that only opthalmologist at KK Nagar directly refers to Private Hospital. Other specialist after diagnosis, they refer to registered wellness centre. Either referal to Private Hospital, or to get medicines we have to come back to wellness centre. If the medicines are not available, to get the medicine waiting period is of 5days. We told instead of refering back to regd. wellness Centre,KK Nagar Main wellness centre can give direction for referral or supply medicine.Thereby the delay and unnecessary travel  to Pensioners can be avoided. He noted all our points and left  to other station.  ,,,,,V.Ramarao CP   TN

 OUR LEADERS MEETING DOT OFFICERS IN NEW DELHI YESTERDAY

Today we (P Gangadhara Rao, Anupam Kaul, T S Vittoban, M K Bagchi and myself) discussed extra increment case with DDG (Estt) and Director (Estt).

We showed her copy of Chennai CAT judgement. She told that she has not received any information from Pcca TN sofar.

After hearing our explanation she wanted copy of  BSNL C.O order dated 18/11/2003

Copy of DoT order of July 2009 authorising for pensionary benefits

Copy of Kerala HC judgement

Copy of DoT order to CCA Kerala for implementation of that judgement.

I have asked Ramarao to go to my house and get those orders from the file.

He has scanned those orders and sent me.

We will be handing over those orders to her on Friday.

Our assessment is that they may not go for appeal since it pertains to few hundred pensioners that too in TN only.

After meeting her on Friday further input will be given.

Com S. Sundarakrishnan, 

Divisional Secretary Speaks:

CCA office issued guidelines for submission of application from pensioners residing in Non CGHS AREA TOWARDS  sanction of Fixed Monthly Allowance of Rs 1000 which will be paid along with Pension . Contacted Joint Cca/Dy CCA telephonically, clarrified some doubts.

1.Applications can be sent directly to CCA OFFICE also.

2.IDA pensioners whose address in the PPO is in CGHS COVERED AREA whereas they have been residing in CGHS non covered area can also apply if proper support of address proof like AADHAR.

3.This FMA PAYMENT of Rs 1000 is in lieu of OPD Treatment .So,surrender of MRS CARD is a must.

3.This facility will be extended to CGHS CARD HOLDERS residing in Non CGHS areas in place of OPD TREATMENT.              It means CGHS CARD can be used only for inpatient treatment like  hospital admission. No medicines can be obtained from Wellness centre   as per para 2(i) of ANNEXURE A.   

4.Para 2(ii) if Annexure A is, by surrendering MRS CARD, without applying for CGHS card pensioner can avail FMA. No inpatient treatment facility even in case of EMERGENCY.  

5.Our suggestion, apply for CGHS CARD as BSNL IS REIMBURSING.

Annexure B is little bit confusing.       The pensioners are eligible for FMA only if they surrender MRS card. If they don't get CGHS card then they can't get any indoor treatment.  We would like to caution that enhancement of FMA from 1000/- to 3000/- is only a recommendation of the parliamentary standing committee. It's for the government, particularly finance department to take a decision because the expenditure will triple. In our opinion the government may not take a positive decision. We wish that our opinion should be wrong.          The filled in form need not be sent through SSAs.

 FIXED MEDICAL ALLOWANCE OF RS.1000/- TO BSNL PENSIONERS RESIDING IN NON CGHS COVERED AREA
