DoP&PW – Success Story
1. Sanction of Family pension under CCS (Extraordinary Pension) Rules after 36 years
Naik Karam Chand of 42bn of Border Security Force died in 1987 due to an electric shock while performing his duty. His widow, Smt. Jashodan Devi, was granted and was being paid family pension at minimum rates under the CCS (Pension) Rules.
Smt. Jashodan Devi registered a grievance No. DOPPW/E/2022/17598 at CPENGRAMS portal on 26.05.2022 claiming family pension at higher rates under the CCS (Extraordinary Pension) Rules. The Grievance was taken up for consideration in the Pension Adalat on 17th May, 2023. The petitioner as well as representatives of BSF attended the Pension Adalat. It was revealed that the authority for revision of family pension, which was being paid under CCS (Pension) Rules (instead of CCS (Extraordinary Pension) Rules), was also not issued in the 5th, 6th and 7th Pay Commissions.
BSF was directed to take immediate action to sanction EOP family pension, if due, and to pay the arrears of family pension after revision in the 5th, 6th and 7th Pay Commission.
BSF has now informed that the case for grant of Extra Ordinary Pension has been approved by the competent authority and has been sent to DIG RR Cell for further action on 8th June, 2023.
