CGHS Silchar


The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is providing free treatment facilities to central government employees and their families in selected private hospitals under the ‘Central Government Health Scheme CGHS’. This scheme was started so that the burden of patients on government hospitals could be reduced and more than 45 lakh central employees of the country could get better treatment on time. It has now decided to open a wellness center of CGHS Silchar as well.

In pursuance of the decision taken by the Government on recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission, the following 33 (thirty-three) postal dispensaries presently functioning in 33 Cities i.e. Agra, Ajmer, Aligarh, Ambala, Amritsar, Bareilly, Behrampur, Chhapra, Cuttack, Darbhanga, Dhanbad, Dibrugarh, Gaya, Gorakhpur, Guntur, Jalandhar, Jalpaiguri, Jodhpur, Kota, Moradabad, Muzaffarpur, Nellore, Raipur, Rajahmundry, Saharanpur, Silchar, Siliguri, Tirunelveli, Tiruchirappalli, Vadodra, Varanasi, Vijaywada and Visakhapatnam are hereby merged with the CGHS

How To Take Advantage Of the CGHS Scheme?

Central employees will not have to deviate from rate to rate for treatment. To avail of this scheme, a CGHS card is required, through which they can avail free treatment facilities in government hospitals and get a discount on the fees of that hospital for treatment in private hospitals.

Documents required for CGHS card

  1. Proof of Residence.
  2. Evidence of dependents living.
  3. Proof of son’s age.
  4. Disability certificate from the competent authority, in the case of dependent son who is more than 25 years of age.

CGHS card is required

One had to first take the number from the dispensaries counter to take advantage of this scheme. They often had to stand in long lines and wait for the number to be taken. But now there is no need to stand in line. Now CGHS plastic card is being given to the employees so that they can get free treatment in any corner of the country.
