Commissioner is the HOD. Can the HOD sanction his own Medical claim? The patient has taken treatment in CGHS referral hospital under emergency condition. For emergency cases HOD is deciding authority. Kindly give guidelines as to whether HOD himself can sanction his own medical claim?

Sir, No any Authority in India (Except President of India) has power to sanction his own medical bill or any other bill like TA,DA, LTC etc. In case of HOD, next higher authority like joint secretary or Secretary is the sanction authority. For bill of Secretary, minister is the sanctioning authority. Ultimate sanction authority is the president of India and He/She is the self sanctioning authority only as per constitution of India. Sanction of own bill by any HOD (other than President of India) is illegal as well as immoral.
