Clarification of CGHS rates on 2014 which have been placed on CGHS website for information and acceptance only

F. No. S. 11011/20/2014-CGHS (HEC)
Directorate General of Central Govt. Health Scheme
Ministry of Health & Family Welfare

Nirman Bhavan, New Delhi
Dated, 16th July, 2014
CLARIFICATION

It has been brought to the notice of the undersigned that some of the CGHS empanelled Health Care Organizations have started charging new CGHS rates 2014 which have been placed on CGHS website for information and acceptance only. Since these rates have not yet been notified by Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the empanelled HCOs cannot charge these new rates and CGHS 2010 rates would prevail. Charging these new rates 2014 from CGHS beneficiaries by empanelled health care organizations would amount to overcharging and suitable action including recovery of overcharged amount and forfeiture of performance bank guarantee would be initiated against those HCOs by CGHS.

Reservation for Minorities

Reservation for Minorities

The Government considered the recommendation of the National Commission for Religious and Lingusitic Minorities (NCRLM) regarding reservation to minority communities. A sub-quota of 4.5% reservation for minority communities as defined under Section 2 (c) of National Commission for Minorities Act, 1992 [viz. Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhist and Zoroastrians (Parsis)] was carved out of the 27% reservation for the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) in admission to Central Government institutions and in Civil Posts under the Government of India and this was notified by the Government on 22-12-2011 to be effective from 01-01-2012. The Hon’ble High Court of Andhra Pradesh in its judgement dated 28-05-2012 set aside the carving out of a sub-quota of 4.5% reservation to minorities out of the 27% reservation for OBCs. The matter is presently sub-judice in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India.

This was stated by Dr. Najma A. Heptulla, the Minister of Minority Affairs in Lok Sabha yesterday.
