Sub: -  Providing CGHS facilities at Vijayawada, state Capital of Andhra Pradesh.

Even though four year years are over after the formation of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states by dividing erstwhile Andhra Pradesh state, no separate CGHS Head Quarters is established for Andhra Pradesh state at its capital Vijayawada and the discrimination continues inspite of Several memorandums submitted earlier by various organisations and people’s representatives. As a newly formed state capital Vijayawada is entitled for establishment of CGHS facilities as the CGHS existing at Hyderabad has become a part of Telangana state. It is reported that state Govt. is providing required land for establishing Central Govt. offices in the proposed city “Amaravathi” the future Capital City of Andhra Pradesh. Land will be allotted for establishing CGHS also in the proposed capital city, if applied for by CGHS authorities new itself. AIIMS has already been allotted land. Pending Construction of own building the CGHS can function in rented buildings as being functioned in many others states.

Your kind intervention is requested to Immediate establishment of
(1)   New CGHS Headquarters of Andhra Pradesh at Vijayawada with branches at Visakhapatnam and Tirupathi.
(2)   Further those pensioners who enrolled CGHS membership from Non-CGHS area and continuing since 10 years may be granted permanent membership on payment of ten years subscription as per the rate of subscription on the date of their retirement excluding the amount already paid by them on temporary basis.

Awaiting early favourable action,

Yours faithfully,
