Delhi Government’s Pensioners are facing great difficulty in getting medical facilities. While giving details in this regard, Mr. Inder Mohan Singh, Executive Member of Delhi Government Employees Welfare Association (Regd) said that as per information some empanelled hospitals like Max and B.L. Kapoor hospital have stopped providing cashless medical facilities to the Delhi Government Pensioners due to the reason that Delhi Government has not cleared their long pending dues worth crores of rupees.
He said that similarly due to delay in finalizing the tender process, pensioners in most part of Delhi are not being provided medicines thereby compelling them to purchase these medicines from open market on cash basis.
He said that even in North and North-west districts of Delhi, no Chemist took part in the tender process because their long pending bills amounting to crores of rupees have also not been paid by the Delhi government.
Mr Inder Mohan Singh said that the Pensioners with their meager limit income are unable to get their treatment on cash basis and purchase medicines from open market. He made an appeal to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Health Minister Satyender Jain to immediately sort out the problems of the Pensioners and ensure that the senior citizens in their last leg of life should not suffer due to lack of basis essential medical facility.
