Subject : Inclusion of names of the widowed/ divorced/ unmarried daughter/ parents/ permanently disabled children/dependent disabled siblings (i.e. brothers and sisters) in the PPO - Procedure regarding.

I am directed to refer to this Ministry’s letter No. 1(07/2013-D(Pension/Policy) dated 15.05.2015 regarding simplification of pension process for permanently disabled children and dependent parents/ siblings for family pension. It has been noticed that name of divorced/ widowed/ unmarried daughter has not been included in MoD letter No. 1/(07)/2013/D(Pension/Policy) dated 15.05.2015 causing delay in sanctioning of family pension to such eligible members 1.e. widowed/ divorced/ unmarried daughter, although name of such eligible members was a part of DoP&PW OM No. 1/6/08-P&PW(E) dated 22.06.2010.

(7)/2013-D(Pension/Policy) dated 15.05.2015 ceases to be payable, the PDA will allow family pension to such widowed/divorced/ unmarried daughter in their hierarchy of DoB after production of marriage/ re-marriage/ death certificate, as the case may be, in respect of all the categories of claimants mentioned in Sub Para - i) and (i) of para 5 of GoI, MoD letter dated 15.05.2015, if any.”

(c) After inserting above clause in Gol, MoD letter dated 15.05.2015, remaining sub clauses under para -5 may be renumbered in following manner:
  • Existing Clause 5(iii) “To the dependent parents-first mother, then father” to be renumbered as 5(iv)
  • Existing Clause 5(iv) “To the permanently disabled siblings” to be renumbered as 5(v).
3. The word “Farther” in first line of para 5(iii) of GoI, MoD letter no. 1(7)/2013-D (Pension / Policy) dated 15.05.2015 may be replaced by word “Father”.

4. The renumbered para 5(iv) referred above may be amended as follows:-

For: “When claimants in (i) and (ii) die or become ineligible- on production of death certificate/ re-marriage-intimation of spouse and/ or death certificates of all permanently disabled children, family pension would be allowed by PDA to dependent parents.”
