Family pension for Central govt employee dying within 7 years of service hiked to 50 %


The family of a Government servant, who dies within seven years of joining service, will now be eligible for family pension at the enhanced rate of 50 per cent of last pay drawn for a period of 10 years. Earlier, the government servant who had rendered service of less than seven years before his death, the rate of family pension was 30 per cent from the beginning and family pension at an enhanced rate of 50 per cent was not payable to the family.

According to an official release, the government has amended Rule 54 of the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972 by a notification on 19th of this month after it felt that the need for family pension at enhanced rate is more in the case of a government servant who dies early in his career. The amendment will be effective from 1st of next month. However, the families of government servants who died before completion of service of seven years within 10 years before 1st October, 2019, will also be eligible for family pension at enhanced rates with effect from 1st of October.

The release said,the benefit of amended provisions would be available to the families of all government servants, including the personnel of Central Armed Police Forces. The family pension is payable at enhanced rate of 50 per cent of the pay last drawn for a period of 10 years, if the government servant had rendered a continuous service of not less than seven years and thereafter that rate of family pension is 30 per cent of the pay last drawn.
