CGHS Non Covered Cities

Where as Cities which do not fall under the scheme enrolment order are not allowed to have any employee applying for the scheme and even if they apply, the application will not move forward, and the reason is simple because there are cities which are exempted from the scheme but these cities have some other scheme in the health sector.

There are quite a few cities which are not under this scheme right now but the Organization of CGHS has passed down orders to merge many of these into same functioning order in same state, so that the scheme can be implemented, and a total of 33 Pin codes have been issued orders by the CGHS department but it will take some time.
