Some of our members are confused about the CGHS and CGHIS schemes. We may clarify these schemes as –

1.      CGHS – Central Govt. Health Scheme – This scheme is run by Ministry of health and family welfare Govt. of India. This is the Scheme for which RTOWA is pursuing and the final proper orders have not been issued till now.

 

2.      CGHIS – Contributory Group Health Insurance scheme – This scheme is run by MTNL management. All MTNL retirees are getting medical facility under this scheme. We broadly call it MTNL indoor Medical Facility.

 

Members please do not get confused between the two schemes.

The copy of letter is given on RTOWA website.

MTNL Corporate Office has circulated a modified Annexure – G which is a “Self Declaration Form for availing MTNL CGHIS Facility”. Thus MTNL retirees have to give a declaration that those who want to avail themselves of MTNL CGHIS facility, must give undertaking that they will bear the 50% of CGHIS premium. Simultaneously MTNL Corporate Office has enhanced the annual premium for CGHIS policy substantially as follows:-

Annual Premium for CGHIS Policy :

1     For single beneficiary  :   Rs 5393/- + Tax as applicable

2     For double beneficiary : Rs 8944/- + Tax as applicable

i.e   As per the orders retirees will have to pay 50% of the premium amount plus Service Tax which is more than Rs. 5000/= for both husband and wife beneficiary and Rs. 3000/= for single beneficiary.

RTOWA took initiative and wrote a strong letter on the Joint Forum platform to CMD MTNL.

08-10-2016 -  Life Certificate by Pensioners , Jeevan Pramaan Method –

All retirees have to submit their life certificate in the month of November every year to be eligible to continue to draw pension. Govt. of India has announced introduction of system of Jeevan Pramaan system for pensioners to submit the life certificate without physically visiting the pension cell. There have been lot of queries from members about the functioning of this system. The information as given on Govt. of India Website is given below for the guidance of members who are interested to use it –

The complete information is given on Website - https://jeevanpramaan.gov.in/

On the website links are given to explain  each items. Members may first read the “FAQ”  link whereby the details of the system is given in the Question –Answer form.

 

Further brief detail of the system is -

-       What is Jeevan Pramaan -

Jeevan Pramaan is computer generated digital life certificate for pensioner. Jeevan Pramaan Certificate is produced for individual pensioner using his Biometric Credentials.

For this certificate individual pensioner has not to present himself/ herself in front of seniors authorised Officers. This can be generated even from home. Only you need a internet connection and Biometric devices

 Pl note that - this facility has been given to get hassle free Life Certificates. The conventional life certificates are also valid.

 

How it Works

Jeevan Pramaan uses the Aadhaar platform for biometric authentication of the pensioner. A successful authentication generates the Digital Life Certificate which gets stored in the Life Certificate Repository. The Pension Disbursing Agencies can access the certificate on-line.

                     Enrol Yourself

Download the PC/ Mobile application or alternatively visit the nearest Jeevan Pramaan Centre to get yourself registered. 
Provide necessary information like Aadhaar number, Pension Payment Order, 
Bank Account, Bank Name and your Mobile number.

                     Aadhaar Authentication

Provide your biometrics, either a finger print or Iris and authenticate your self. 
(Jeevan Pramaan uses the Aadhaar Platform for on-line biometric authentication )

                     Life Certificate.

After a successful authentication a SMS acknowledgement is sent to your mobile number including your Jeevan Pramaan Certificate ID.
The certificates are stored in the Life Certificate Repository for making it available any time and any where for the pensioner and the Pension Disbursing Agency.

                     Access your Certificate

You can download a PDF copy of the certificate from the Jeevan Pramaan website by providing the Jeevan Pramaan ID or Aadhaar number.

 

-       Locate a centre – centre can be located by entering one’s PIN No in the link provided for locating Jeevan Pramaan centre.

 

-       Download Applications - The applications can be downloaded through the link provided on the website.

 

 

Suggestions by RTOWA -  

-      This system is designed for the retirees who has the PPO Book issued by CCA office and not applicable for the retirees holding MTNL PPO book.

 

-      This method is very useful for the retirees who are residing out Delhi and are not able to come to Delhi to submit the life certificate.

 

-       The system has still not been tested or utilized by any of our members , so its working system has not been practically tested.

 

-      RTOWA Delhi representatives will meet the officers of Pr. CCA Delhi and discuss about the implementation of Jeevan Pramaan  & process of life Certificate for MTNL retirees having MTNL PPO book.

11-09-2016 – RTOWA Delhi News - Appeal to VRS Optees-

RTOWA is committed to resolve the problems of retirees. This association has resolved many problems of the retirees particularly Govt.Pension, Revision of pension from 2007 and the pension arrear, VRS issues ,CGHS issue and other important issues. We are aware of the very important issue i.e TIME BOUND PROMOTION of VRS Optees. The association has taken up this case at all levels. The case was discussed with CMD, DIR(Fin), DIR(HR). In all our formal meetings we are pressing MTNL management to resolve this issue. But the result has not come to our satisfaction. The very important issue like Revision of Pension and payment of arrears was on priority and we have resolved these issues. There was some delay in some cases, but the issue was ultimately resolved.

Few of our members are always in hurry to get all the problems resolved in one go. Now a day, it is very difficult to get any issue resolved with MTNL due to its financial position.

Some of the VRS retirees are planning to go to court of law for time bound promotion. These people seem to be misled by the forces who do not want the RTOWA to function smoothly. Going to Court of Law will complicate the issue. It will give MTNL management an excuse not to resolve the problem across the table.

Association has many important issues in hand Viz. Pension revision w.e.f Jan 2017 and CGHS issues which Association is trying to resolve across the table by discussion with different levels of management . Going to court of law at this juncture will have a adverse impact on these issues.

Hence we appeal to the affected members to wait. It is not the right time to go to court of law.  Let the arrears be paid to all. We will pressurize Management to get it resolved across the table at the earliest.

 

Hoping the members will cooperate. 

S S NANDA GS

 

 

11-09-2016 – RTOWA Delhi News – CGHS Status –

 It is known to all that with the great efforts and persuasion of RTOWA,  MTNL management and DOT have issued orders for implementation of CGHS facility to MTNL / BSNL retirees. But the CGHS authorities have raised the objection that they want ‘the equivalent CDA Basic Pay at the time of retirement’ to be mentioned on the PPO Book. They are not ready to accept the DOT orders for it.

Calculating the equivalent Basic Pay of each and every retiree is very difficult task and MTNL management does not have the resources to calculate it.

Association is taking this issue at all levels of management and finding the possible solutions to resolve this problem.

We appeal to all retirees to have patience and wait till this problem is resolved. Association has already reached to a deciding stage to get the orders of CGHS issued and we are determined to get other problems resolved at the association level.

Moreover, members may note that MTNL indoor / outdoor Medical scheme will continue till finalization of CGHS scheme. They should not be worry about it.

Members should cooperate in resolving this problem.
