I wanted clarification from BSNL CO "whether BSNL family pensioners are eligible to migrate from BSNLMRS facility to CGHS medical facility". There is no clear reply to my RTI question whether BSNL family pensioners are eligible to migrate from

BSNLMRS facility to CGHS medical facility now. BSNL has quoted Aug-20, 2010

clarifications order which explains about BSNLMRS facility alone.I want a clear reply from you whether BSNL family

pensioner are allowed for migration from BSNLMRS facility to CGHS medical facility now.
