ANSWER

THE MINISTER OF HEALTH AND FAMILY WELFARE
(SHRI JAGAT PRAKASH NADDA)

(a): During 2012-13 & 2013-14 the allocations under Non-Plan Budget were fully utilized. In 2014-15 approximately Rs 32 crores could not be utilized under Salary Head.

Under Plan Head budget Rs. 19.89 crores in 2012-13, Rs.46.47 crores in 2013-14 and Rs. 41.18 crores in 2014-15 could not be utilized mainly under Capital Head and Supplies and Materials.

(b): The funds in the Non-Plan Budget were not fully utilized during the FY 2014-15 due to non-filling of vacant posts of GDMOs by UPSC.

In the Plan budget funds could not be utilized due to under-utilisation largely under Capital Head due to delay in requisite approvals and failure on the part of CPWD to execute the work.

Efforts have been made to rationalize the sanctions under Capital works.

(c): OPD consultation and issue of medicines prescribed by doctors of the private empanelled hospitals is not permitted except in post-operative follow-up cases of Neurosurgery, Cardiac surgery (including Coronary Angioplasty & implants), Cancer treatment, Kidney transplantation, Hip/Knee Joint Replacement and Accidents where prior permission has been obtained for follow- up treatment.

In addition OPD consultation is also permitted in satellite cities of NCR, viz., Faridabad, Noida, Gurgaon and Ghaziabad.
(d): Medicines prescribed by doctors of CGHS empanelled hospitals in above cases are issued by the concerned wellness centres as per the available Generic or Brand name.
