I have been refused reimbursement of Medical expenses incurred by me on my mother who was suffering from cancer. My mother stayed at Patna & I am posted in NE Region, she was dependent on me,the hospital where she was treated was a Govt. Hospital and my place of posting is not covered by CGHS. The refusal was on the allegation that I had not taken prior permission from the Department. In my considered opinion there is no provision for prior permission required under CCS(MA) Rules 1944. The three conditions that are (i) she is my dependent, (ii) she stayed in Patna where Govt. Hospital had treated her and (iii) I am only eligible under CCS(MA) Rules 1944 were fulfilled by me. Incidentally my mother expired.
I shall be grateful if some one through some light on this issue.
