  2. Has the wellness centre started operating ? The GMC staff is clueless and no proper guidance is given to the patient :/

  3. Sir, there is no counter.I ran from pillar to post on 10 April.They did not even accept my CGHS card..but wanted my Voter card.I am a pensioner with 35 years experience and retired in 2008. With reluctance, they registered my wife but were clueless as to where treatment would be given.

  4. I visited GMC on 10 April 18.I am entitled for pvt sard but I was told at counter 1 that he does not know about CGHS at all.I can register for treatment only if I got voter card of Goa.I showed him my Adhar card with Goa address. But he said it is nor relevant.I am sure CGHS has not been opened at GMC as no staff is aware of the counter.THERE IS NO BOARD AT GMC REGARDING CGHS COUNTER.THEY TOLD ME TO SHOW VOTER CARD .
