FIXED MEDICAL ADVANCE ENHANCED
FROM 300/- TO 500/-
DATE OF EFFECT: 19.11.2014
The Government has issued orders for enhancing the Fixed Medical Allowance to Pensioners from the present 300/- per month to Rs.500/- per month. This enhancement will take effect from 19.11.2014. The Pensioners Organisations have been demanding the raise of FMA from Rs.300/- to Rs.2000/- per month on par with the employees of Provident Fund Department where the employees are granted a monthly medical allowance of Rs.2000/-. This issue has also been taken to the notice of 7th CPC for necessary recommendation.Meanwhile the Government has marginally enhanced it from 300/- to 500/- which is quite inadequate to meet the medical needs of the family of Pensioners.
