TREATMENT OF SENIOR CITIZENS

1. Ref the u/m letters of Central Org ECHS on the subject :-

(a) B/49701/AG/ECHS dated 15 Mar 2007.
(b) B/49701-PR/AG/ECHS dated 19 Nov 2007.
(c) B/49701-PR/AG/ECHS dated 12 Dec 2013.

2. Directions had been issued vide the a/m letters to allow priority in medical attendance to the ECHS male members above 75 yrs and female members above 70 yrs of age in the Polyclinics.

3. Inadvertently, these Veterans above 75 yrs and dependent female members above 70 yrs have been mentioned as ‘Senior Citizens’, whereas as per Govt norms all citizens over 60 years are referred to as Senior Citizens. Accordingly some Veterans are demanding that priority should be accorded to all members above 60 years being Senior Citizens. The very purpose of priority will be defeated in case all are granted same dispensation.
