Subsidy in Group Mediclaim Scheme – NOINO’s one more demand accepted
You all are well aware of the continuous efforts made by NOINO for the fulfilment of the just aspirations of the Class I Officers in particular. The diligent efforts & the rigorous follow-up which has been the USP of NOINO have started to give results & the last 5 to 6 years have seen a steady trickle of benefits & achievements for the Class I Officers which was a neglected Class before the formation of NOINO in 2002.
NOINO will continue to fight for the just demands of the Class I officers.
The latest achievement is regarding the subsidy in Group Mediclaim premium. You may be aware that for all these years, the subsidy given to the Class I Officers in Group Mediclaim premium was 2/3rd of the premium whereas for all other classes it is 3/4th of the premium. Even retired employees (including retired Class I Officers) are given 3/4th subsidy. This was devoid of any logic. In terms of the amount, it may seem insignificant. However, it amounted to discrimination & hence NOINO was continuously taking up this matter with the management. The management saw reason in our argument & accepted our demand. The circular enhancing the subsidy is available at Jeevan Sanchar site ref:- CO/OS/Mediclaim/2012-13 dated
15th March 2013. We thank the management for accepting our
