7th Pay Commission Recommendations on CGEGIS
Subsequent to the implementation of the 3rd CPC recommendations, Central Government Employees’ Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) was notified in 1980 and came into force w.e.f. 1 January 1982.
The scheme serves the twin objectives of (a) providing a lump-sum amount to the families in case of an employee’s death and (b) a lump-sum payment to the employee on cessation of employment, both on a wholly contributory and self-financing basis.
Present Rates of CGEGIS
CGEGIS Subscription Rates after 7th Pay Commission: The old subscription rates only continued for all Central Govt employees. The Govt not yet decided and published new revised rates of subscription for CGEGIS. The old subscription rate table is given below:
- 7th Pay Level 1 to Level 5: Rs. 30
- 7th Pay Level 6 to Level 9: Rs. 60
- 7th Pay Level 10 and above: Rs. 120
CGEGIS comprises a Savings Fund and an Insurance Fund in the ratio 70:30. The present rates of deduction, insured amount and savings units are as follows:
Table 1: Present Rates of CGEGIS
|Group||Monthly Deduction (Rs.)||Insurance Amount (Rs.)||No. of Units (for Savings)|
The value, in Rs., of each unit (for Savings), is published by the Ministry of Finance every year in the form of Tables of Benefits, and the total amount is worked out using the same depending upon when the employee joined the scheme and the year/month of cessation of membership.
Upon employee’s exit from the scheme, only the Savings amount, as applicable on the concerned date, is payable. In case of the demise of the employee, the Savings amount applicable on date plus the Insured amount is payable.
Demands Before 7th CPC
The Commission has received numerous representations from various stakeholders stating that the Monthly Deduction, as well as the Insurance Amount, have remained unchanged since 1990. In the present context, they are too low and should be increased.
7th CPC Analysis and Recommendations
As a logical comparator, the Commission considered the rates under Army Group Insurance Fund (AGIF), which have become applicable w.e.f. 01.09.2013. These are as follows:
Present Rates of AGIF
|Group||Monthly Deduction (Rs.)||Insurance Amount (Rs.)|
The Commission also took into view the fact that the pay of Defence personnel is by and large higher than that of Civilian employees of a comparable level. Hence, with suitable modifications for Civilian employees, the following rates of CGEGIS are recommended:
Recommended Rates of CGEGIS
|7th Pay Level of Employee||Monthly Deduction (Rs.)||Insurance Amount (Rs.)|
|Pay Level 10 and above||5000||50,00,000|
|Pay Level 6 to 9||2500||25,00,000|
|Pay Level 1 to 5||1500||15,00,000|
The Commission also took note of the fact that the Tables of Benefits published by the Ministry of Finance are based on the mortality rate of 3.75 per thousand per annum up to 31.12.1987 and 3.60 per thousand per annum thereafter.
In its report (brought out in January 1997), the V CPC had pointed out that the mortality rate, life expectancy, and health delivery systems have improved over a period of time.
They had highlighted the need “for a detailed review of the current mortality rates with a view to revising the apportionment between the Savings and Insurance Funds.”
Since it was likely to take some time, they had recommended a ratio of Savings Fund to Insurance Fund of 75:25, with “appropriate machinery for a periodical review of the mortality rates and adjustment of the apportionment ratio.”
All three factors viz., mortality rate, life expectancy and health delivery systems have further improved over the course of nearly twenty years following the V CPC recommendations.
Accordingly, this Commission recommends that the ratio of Savings Fund to Insurance Fund be modified from the present 70:30 to 75:25, as an interim measure, pending a detailed review.
It is also recommended that periodical reviews of mortality rates should be undertaken for suitable adjustment of the apportionment ratio. The Tables of Benefits may be modified accordingly.
Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme
A portion of monthly contributions paid while in service is credited in a Saving Fund, on which interest accrues. A Government servant while entering service has to apply in Form No. 4 of the above Scheme to the Head of Office, who shall issue a sanction for the payment of subscriber’s accumulation in the Savings Fund segment together with interest and arrange for its disbursement, soon after retirement. Payments under this Scheme are made in accordance with the Table of Benefit (as issued by Department of Expenditure) which takes in to account interest up to the date of cessation of service. Insurance cover benefit under this Scheme is available to the family in the event of death of the subscriber.
