Sub: Inordinate delay in payment of Medical Examination fees to the Doctors conducting medical of the new insurants of the new proposals of PLI and RPLI in HP Circle
It has been represented to this union that the medical examination fees payable to the Doctors examining the insurants of PLI/RPLI proposals are not paid for the last one year.
The field officers procuring PLI/RPLI proposals have themselves visit the concerned/authorized doctor for conducting medical examination of the insurant, the doctors while examining the insurant also complains the delay in payment of medical fees due to them.
As such, the field staff is also facing inconveniences/difficulties in obtaining the signature of the medical officers on the new proposals. It also reflects the approach of our department on such issues.
You are therefore, requested kindly issue suitable instructions to the Divisional Heads causing payment of medical fees to the eligible doctors, it will, I am sure will definitely facilitate a speedy procurement/finalization of PLI/RPLI Policies.
