  6. While the Government was thinking to cover all the Central Government employees and Pensioners under the one window of Central Health Scheme, at the same time it is not understood why the Staff Side members of the JCM has reached to an agreement with the Official Side about fixed medical allowance of Rs300/-. I do not know how this meagre amount of Rs300/- will satisfy the pensioners. It is well known that Government is spending huge sum for the beneficiaries of Central Government Health Scheme. Compared to that the amount of Rs300/- so sanctioned is nothing. I, therefore request the leaders of staff side not to negotiate for this meagre sum. Instead it should try for the proper health facilities for the Central Government pensioners, on which Government of India has already initiated some action.
