Extension of CGHS facilities to KV teachers similarly as being extended to KVS(HQ) and KVS(Regional Office) staff and extension of CGHS facility to KVS employees at par with retired Government of India employees, AIKVTA pointed out in the JCM meeting of KVS.
Teachers should also be granted CGHS facility as is being provided to KVS HQ and Regional Office Staff. The CGHS benefits available to Government of India employees after their retirement should also be available to retired KVS employees as is being extended to NCERT employees.
Comments of KVS : The matter for extending CGHS facilities to all the KVS employees was taken up by the Sangathan with the Director, CGHS and the have informed that the matter was referred to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and who has opined that it is the policy of the Government not to extend facilitites to new category of beneficiary but consolidate only to those available to existing ones. KVS has pursued the matter with the Director, UT-II Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India, New Delhi so many times requesting the Ministry of HRD to reconsider the decision. But the same has been denied, though effort are still being made. However, the Sangathan will once again take up the matter with Ministry of Health through the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India to reconsider their decision and CGHS authorities has intended their inability to extend the scheme to any concerned group due to constraints of man power etc. vide letter dated 27.6.2012.
Decision/Recommendation : Although, the staff side and official side were of the view that the CGHS facilitites should be extended to all the serving and retired employees of KVS. Since the CGHS authorities have shown their inability in extending the facility for want of infrastructural facilities as such, it was unanimously decided that the matter may be taken up with the Ministry of Health again through MHRD and the progress should be submiteed in the next meeting.
