You are aware that AIIEA has been demanding improvements in our Mediclaim scheme.  Finally, LIC issued instructions introducing Family Floater Policy under Group Mediclaim Scheme. Please refer LIC circular nos. CO/PER/ER-1/058 dated 4th March, 2014 and CO/PER/ER-A/066/2014 dated 28th April, 2014 introducing and revising the limits of cover under Group Mediclaim Scheme.

The sum insured under compulsory family floater is enhanced to Rs. 3 lacs, 4 lacs and 6 lacs depending on the basic pay of the employee. The LIC will continue to give a subsidy of 75% premium on the basic sum insured i.e., compulsory floater cover. There is also provision wherein an employee can opt for increased sum insured on floater basis for different amounts ranging from 4 lacs to 20 lacs. However, the maximum sum insured including compulsory floater sum insured shall not exceed Rs. 20 lacs.  The instructions are clear in the above mentioned circulars about the benefits available and premiums charged. The new floater policy in respect of basic sum insured is made effective from 1.4.2014 and increased optional sum insured will be operative from 1st July, 2014. Please note that the last date to opt for increased floater cover is 31st May, 2014.

Employees are aware that in the present day circumstances the cost of hospitalization has increased manifold.  A broad observation of the premium rates for covering optional floater sum insured looks to be not too expensive.  As such, we suggest that the employees should carefully analyze needs of the family keeping in view the rising medical costs, the size and age group of the family, etc.  After the expiry of the last date for exercising the option for increased cover, there may not be further chance for option till next three years. Therefore, we advise all the employees to opt for increased sum insured to the maximum extent possible depending on their needs.

We are sure that all the employees will avail of this opportunity of exercising option for the increased cover to the maximum extent under the new family floater policy under Group Mediclaim .

All India Insurance Employees’ Association (AIIEA) deeply mourns the demise of Nelson Mandela, anti-apartheid activist and an iconic freedom fighter of South Africa, who passed away on 5 December 2013. Mandela led a long and arduous struggle for freedom against one of the most brutal regimes in the world. He was a symbol of all the people in the world who struggle for freedom, democracy and human dignity.

Nelson Rohlihlahla Mandela, born on July 18, 1918, joined the African National Congress at the age of 25. He was instrumental in the establishment of the ANC Youth League. He played a crucial role in the drafting of the 'Freedom Charter', the guiding force of the freedom and anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa.

Mandela was confined to rigorous, solitary imprisonment for 27 years in the dreaded Palesmoor High Security Prison in Robben Island, off the coast of South Africa. This could not break his indomitable spirit or make him bow his head before the authoritarian apartheid regime. The apartheid government and its imperialist supporters were forced to release Mandela by the popular pressure exerted by people world over.

After his release from prison in February 1990, Mandela became the President of ANC and then went on to win the elections of free South Africa and became its first black President. Unlike many leaders who cling to power, Mandela voluntarily retired after serving one term as the President of South Africa. He was the Secretary General of the Non-aligned Movement during 1998-99.

In Mandela's demise, the world has lost one of its finest sons who fought lifelong for the betterment of the peoples' living conditions. In his death, all the people fighting for freedom and against injustice have lost a valuable ally. His death is a great loss to humanity. At the same time his life and work remain a source of inspiration in the onward march of humanity for freedom and liberty.
AIIEA expresses its profound grief at the demise of this legendary leader and extends its heartfelt condolences to the people of South Africa.

1. AIIEA has taken up with LIC for increase in advance for the employees affected in Uttarakhand flash floods and the Phailine Cyclone.  Management responded positively and a decision is expected.

2. AIIEA came out with an appeal to donate for PM's relief fund to meet the relief activity in Uttarakhand.

3. AIIEA discussed with General Secretary, ECZIEA about the relief activity to be taken up in Ganjam and other districts of Orissa. An amount of Rs.5,00,000 (Five lakhs) is being sent to ECZIEA to meet the immediate relief activity. This amount is being sent from the AIIEA reserve funds since some amounts which were unutilized by some zones in earlier relief activities were transferred to AIIEA and are in the reserve fund.

Dear Comrades,

We have been receiving queries from some units about placing a demand for linking the food coupons with price index.

We have already clarified on this issue in the year 2011.

The original scheme of food coupons announced in September 2010 provided for linkage of the food coupon amount with price index and to revise the amount every year subject to costing of the scheme.

That is how, in the year 2011 and 2012 the food coupon amount was revised.

So, this year also in the month of September 2013 the circular on revision of food coupon is expected. You may inform this to the divisional units.

 

Comradely yours,
