Punjab Police has entered into an informal arrangement with local hospitals to provide affordable health facilities to its personnel and their families, Additional Director General of Police MF Farooqui said on Saturday.

“We have signed an MoU with some multi-specialty hospitals in Jalandhar under which they will provide all facilities including diagnostics at Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) rates to police officers and their dependents. These CGHS rates are considerably lower than their extraordinarily high charges,” Farooqui said. This facility will be extended to all police officers including Special Police Officers (SPOs), Punjab Home Guards (PHGs) and Class-IV staff. This project will be implemented in Hoshiarpur, Jalandhar Rural, Kapurthala and Jalandhar Commissionerate with PAP in the first phase.

The officer said it was an informal arrangement as police officers would pay their bills and later submit their claims to the department as per procedure. “This will save them from an immediate heavy financial burden that often forces them to borrow money from private financiers,” he added.
