For any misuse of the DDO Code or password or entry of incorrect data the DDOs will be personally held responsible and liable for disciplinary action under CCA Rules and also for criminal prosecution for any tampering of important information, specially data relating to the date of birth, date of initial entry into service, details of the local unit as per the presidential order, wrongful entries in the community status as SC or ST etc., Disciplinary action and or Criminal Prosecution will be launched against those employees who willfully provide wrong data on the above mentioned items.

Some DDOs like the District Police Office and the Mandal Education Officers act as DDO for a number of offices and they shall enter the details of all the subordinate offices without any omissions. Regarding the data of next higher office the DDO should furnish the details of the office to which his office will report, for example the DDO of an MRO office shall furnish the details only of the RDO office but not the office of the District Collector or any superior office. Similarly the DDOs of the District Offices shall enter the details of the zonal/ regional offices only if any, otherwise enter the details of the head of the department to which the district office directly reports. The offices below the level of district office should not show the office of the head of the department as their next higher office.

It is also clarified that only the details of such subordinate offices which have their own DDOs shall not be entered. For example, the DDO of the District Police Office shall enter details of the offices of all the Dy.S.Ps., Inspecors and the Police Stations whereas the DDO of the District Collector’s Office shall not enter the data of the offices of the R.D.Os and the M.R.Os. because those offices have their own DDOs.

However, in case if any employee has already entered his data online through the Arogyasri Portal he shall fill data of all other items except the details of the family members and dependents on CFMS application. The pensioners data shall be uploaded only on the Arogyasri Portal.
- (7) The subscription to Employees Health Cards Scheme is based on orders issued by the Health Department. Therefore the eligibility of the beneficiaries and the exemption to self or the spouse etc., have to be dealt with as per the instructions issued from time to time by the Health Department and the data as per the existing guidelines may be filled now which will be open for modification if any revised guidelines are issued in future by the HM & FW Department.
