Sub: Providing option of choosing CGHS Medical Card to officials retiring from Zonal Railway/PU & other field units.
Presently, the Railway officials retiring from Zonal Railways / PUs and other field units have options of availing Railway medial facilities under RELHS only, whereas the officials posted in Railway Board and retiring from there are allowed to opt for CGHS medical card and avail CGHS medical facilities along with RELHS.
The Railway Medical Card does not provide the level of convenience and facilities as the CGHS Card provides.
There has been a request from large numer of officials to extend the facility of CGHS Card to them also at par with officials posted and retiring from Railway Board. In view of the better reach of medical facilities available under CGHS Card, it is requested to extend the options of availing the same to officials retiring from Zonal Railway/PU and other field units also at par with officials posted / retiring from Railway Board.
An early action is solicited.
