2. It has now been decided that BSNL pensioners who draw their pension from Central Civil Estimates are entitled for CGHS facilities. In case of their switch over again to CGHS from the health scheme of BSNL, they are required to pay subscription at the prevalent rates only for the balance period for life time membership i.e. the number of years for which subscription was already paid by them to CGHS before being switched over to BSNL health scheme, will be deducted from the ten-year subscription period. However, the option of payment of subscription at prevalent rate on annual basis will continue to be available to them for the balance period and the life time CGHS card will be issued on completion of payment of subscription for the total period of ten years.
