To

Sub: Outsourcing of Specialist Medical Services.

   A number of references were received in HQrs. office seeking clarification on outsourcing of medical services in the Armed forces and accordingly the matter has been reviewed denovo.

   2.    On a careful examination of the list of services which can be outsourced (refer Part IV and Annexure III of Govt. letter dated 13.04.2012), it is observed that there are certain overlapping areas and certain services which were being outsourced have not been included in the current list of services. However, it does not imply that these can not be outsourced now. The guiding factor is that the outsourcing should be confined to the ‘non-core’ areas. However, if the necessity of a non core service has been established, outsourcing of the same may be allowed. Further, under AMC in Part IV, Technical Medical Services can be outsourced, which can also be interpreted to include specialist medical services. It is, therefore, felt that outsourcing the services of specialists existed prior to the issue of Govt. Order dated 13th April 2012 and the Govt. Letter dated 13.04.12 has since been issued to streamline the system of outsourcing.

PENSION BILL OR PENSIONLESS BILL? - Confederation News.

   Finally the ruling Congress party and the main opposition Party BJP joined together and passed the  Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) Bill in the Parliament. In the year 1982 on 17th December, the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court consisting of Justice (s) Y. B. Chandrachud, V. D. Tulzapurkar, O. Chinnappa Reddy. D. A. Desai and Bahrul Islam delivered the historic judgment on pension in the D. S. Nakara case, which declared as follows:

   “(i) Pension is neither a bounty nor a matter of grace depending upon the sweet will of the employer and it is Fundamental right (ii) Pension is not an ex-gratia payment, but it is payment for past service rendered (iii) It is a social welfare measure rendering socio-economic justice to those who in the heyday of their life ceaselessly toiled for the employer on an assurance that in their old age they would not be left in lurch.”

   After 30 years, the bill passed by Parliament categorically proclaims that the Contributory Pension Scheme introduced w.e.f 01.01.2004 will not give any guarantee for a minimum pension of 50% of the pay drawn at the time of retirement of the employee. Nor does it provide for the protection of the family members in the form of family pension in the event of death. New pension is going to make the social security uncertain and dependent on market forces. Government compulsorily imposed the scheme on one section of the employees in a most discriminatory manner, inspite of the fact that such scheme had been a failure in many countries including Chile, U K and even in USA. In USA the entire pension wealth (fund) has been wiped out leaving no pension due to the economic recession and share market crash. In Argentine the contributory scheme which was introduced at the instance of IMF was replaced with the defined benefit pension scheme. In majority of the countries “pay as you go” is the system of pension.
