Conveyance Allowance admissible to CGHS Doctors

The doctors working in Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) are paid conveyance allowance for domiciliary visits and performing other official duties beyond office hours.

The conveyance allowance admissible to doctors including specialists, are as under:-

Sr.No. Mode of conveyance

Maximum per month (Rs)

Minimum per month (Rs)

1. Own Car

3300

160

2. Own Scooter/ Motor cycle

1080

80

3. No Own Conveyance

900

60

The Conveyance allowance is payable only if the number of visits is not less than six and for claiming the maximum amount of conveyance allowance, the number of visits should not be less than twenty per month on an average, counted on a quarterly basis. The conveyance allowance is reduced proportionately in case the total number of visits is less than twenty per month.

No record is currently being maintained at the dispensary level. The Conveyance allowance is paid to Specialists/Medical Officers who maintain their own vehicle on the basis of a certificate that the conveyance allowance is being drawn in fulfillment of conditions stipulated for grant of conveyance allowance and in case of others, who do not maintain their own vehicle, on the basis of a certificate that the amount of conveyance allowance claimed is not more than the actual expenditure.

Instructions have been issued recently requiring the doctors to furnish the details of visits made in a prescribed format on a quarterly basis while claiming the conveyance allowance.
