2nd FAMILY PENSION TO THE WIDOWS OF RE-EMPLOYED
In a reply to a letter written by a retired Canara Bank officer (ex-serviceman) to the Personnel Manager, Canara Bank, regarding 2nd Family Pension, the Bank had given the reply as follows:-
REF: CBEPF/mil.pen/2009 DATE: 15-05-2009
This is to certify that Sri V.Murugan (24594), Ex-Officer, isour pensioner, and pension is paid in terms of Canara Bank Employees’ Pension Regulations, 1995. The Scheme is managed by a Pension Trust approved by the Income Tax authorities and Pensionery benefits are paid from a separate Income Tax approved Fund created for the purpose.
Under the Canara Bank Employees’ Pension Regulations, 1995 there is no prohibition on the family of the deceased ex-serviceman employee from receiving family pension from the bank even if the family is in receipt of family pension from other sources.

Comment: A well written reply by the Manager, Personnel Wing of the Canara Bank, Bangalore. It clears all doubts and now all the widows of ex-servicemen who were re-employed in Canara Bank can apply for the family pension in addition to the defence family pension, if they are otherwise eligible.
This may also be noted that, the same will be applicable to other public sector banks also.
However, the State Bank of India gives a different reply. The reply received from PPG department SBI, LHO Chennai on the subject will be published tomorrow.
