OFFICE-MEMORANDUM

The employees of KVS after their retirement are neither provided with) a fixed medical allowance of Rs 100/- p.m. nor any medical facility under the CGHS as provided to the retired Central Govt employees. Even the serving employees of KVS who are CGHS beneficiaries have not been allowed to avail benefits under CGHS after their retirement.

Looking into the genuine needs of the retired employees of KVS for medical assistance, the matter was placed before the Finance Committee in its meeting held on 13th November 2006. The Committee recommended for payment of Rs 100/- pm as fixed medical allowance to the pensioners of KVS as a welfare measure as they are not covered under the CGHS Scheme/CSMA-Rules after their retirement till the appropriate authority does not extend the CGHS facilities to them.

The above recommendation of the Finance Committee was approved by the Board of Governors in its 76th meeting hed 4th December 2006.

Accordingly, all the retired employees of KVS would be eligible to draw a fixed medical allowance of Rs.100/- pm with effect from 1.1.2007 till the appropriate authority does not extend the CGHS facilities to them.
