Closure of AFGIS Scheme : Financial Assistance to Officers Hospitalized Beyond Six Months

1. Consequent to implementation of Sixth Central Pay Commission’s recommendations, officers are entitled to full pay and allowance for the entire duration of hospitalisation if such hospitalisation was due to reasons attributable to service.  Thus, only cases of extended hospitalisation due to illness / causes not attributable to service remained to be covered under the ibid scheme of AFGIS.

2. Considering the fact that during the past  period  of over 10 years,  no case had arisen and /or no request for financial assistance had been received at AFGIS, the Board of Trustees of AFGIS has decided in the BoT meeting held on 12 Aug 15 to discontinue and close the ibid scheme.
