  1. My wife is working in a Govt School as TGT teacher. She tried to submit medical claim for her mother in law but school principal is not accepting claim stating that Mother in laws can not be benefited under the DGEHS. We filed RTI and got an answer stated that mother in laws are allowed in case of women employees. We shown that reply to school principal but still she is not accepting the claim without any reason. Please suggest what can we do here?
