7th pay commission recommendations on Death Gratuity

7th CPC recommendations on Death Gratuity – One more slab introduced in the existing system.  5 to 20 years is split in to 5 to 11 years and 11 to 20 years.

The Commission has received representations pointing to a need for rationalization of current slabs for death gratuity, especially for the slab of 5 to 20 years of qualifying service in which family pensioners are stated to be placed at a disadvantageous position.

Analysis and Recommendations

As per Rule 50 of Pension Rules, the death gratuity admissible will be as follows, subject to the maximum limit prescribed for the gratuity:

 

Length of Service

 

Rate of Death Gratuity

 

Less than one year

 

2 times of monthly emoluments

 

One year or more but less than 5 years

 

6 times of monthly emoluments

12 times of monthly emoluments
