As per a circular issued on Friday, by the government, all the administrative secretaries have been asked to ensure that the drawing & disbursing officers make regular deduction of Rs. 20/- and Rs. 10/- per month respectively from gazetted and non-gazetted employees, as contribution towards the ‘ Cancer Treatment and management Fund for Poor’.

In the event of default in deduction in earlier months, and also in the case there is no objection from the employees, the same should now be deducted Rs. 240/- and Rs. 120/- or the outstanding due amount, as the case may be, to account for the balance contribution in one go, from the salary for the month of February, 2013 as large amounts are required for the treatment of poor cancer patients.

It is worthwhile to mention here that the government has to issue these directions once again in view of the fact that contribution on account of ‘Cancer Treatment and Management Fund for Poor’ is not being deducted regularly by the drawing and disbursing officers, nor the Treasury Officers are ensuring implementation of the circular instructions issued by the Finance Department in this behalf, in the past.
