From a User Perspective, while 'Advisory Committees' exist at station level, no such mechanism exists at Service Hq level.

An 'Oversight Committee' has accordingly been created vide Army Hq letter No B/49760/AG/ECHS dated 4 May 2012, to provide regular objecttive feedbacks about functioning of the scheme to COAS/ AG.
This will facilitate MD ECHS in ensuring that the quality of medicare provided to the beneficiaries is maintained at desirable level.

Maj Gen RR Oberoi, YSM (Retd). -Chairman.
Brig Trigunesh Mukherjee, AVSM (Retd). Brig Sateesh Kuthiala (Retd).
