Department’s Office Memorandum No: 45/07/2008-P&PW (F) dated 16th March, 2009, provided that ex-gratia lump sum compensation to the families of deceased Government servants including from sundry Government sources, such as the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund, Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, etc. should not exceed the aggregate of Rs. 20 lakhs in each individual case.
However, Government has now relaxed this condition and it has now been decided that there will be no ceiling for grant of ex-gratia lump sum compensation.
