2nd FAMILY PENSION TO THE WIDOWS

2nd FAMILY PENSION TO THE WIDOWS OF THE RE-EMPLOYED EX-SERVICEMEN.


Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, Department of Pension and Pensioner’s Welfare through its Office Memorandum No. 1/19/96-P&PW(E) dt.19/7/2002 allowed family pension under the EPF Scheme 1995 and the FPS 1971 in addition to the Family Pension under Rule 54 of the CCS (Pension) Rules 1972.


This benefit is available from 27.7.2001. It means that all the widows of the re-employed ex-servicemen, whose husbands were drawing two separate pensions and died before 27.7.2001 and after 27.7.2001 are now eligible for two family pensions. But practically this benefit has not been availed by any widow till date. The reasons are:-


1. The O.M. No.1/19/96-PPW(E) dt.19.7.2002 by the Dept. of Pension and Pensioner’s welfare has not been widely circulated. The MOD, Dept. of Ex-servicemen Welfare had not circulated this order.


2. The Record Offices and the respective departments where the ex-servicemen were re-employed had joined together and ensured that only one family pension is released to the widow.


3. Since most of the ex-servicemen re-employed prior to 1986 had not done the endorsement of family pension, their widows suffered a lot to get one pension even though their husbands were drawing two pensions.


4. The Record offices refused to endorsement of family pension without getting an no-objection certificate from the re-employer that they will not sanction any family pension.


5. In some cases, the re-employers such as the Nationalized Banks, PSUs like the Indian Oil Corporation, Bharat Petroleum Corporation, etc., who are having EPF scheme 1995 released the family pension to the widow immediately. After accepting this EPF scheme 1995 pension, when the widow applied for the defence family pension, the record offices simply turn down the application stating that they are eligible for only one family pension. Thus the widow continued to lose her legitimate defence family pension even after issue of the order from 27.7.2001.


Thus the widows of the re-employed ex-servicemen whose husbands were drawing two pensions before 27.7.2001 or after 27.7.2001 and died subsequently are though eligible for two family pensions, but are being paid only one pension.


The MOD, Dept. of Ex-servicemen Welfare should issue a circular on the subject immediately and enable the widows to get both the family pensions in the last days of their life. Otherwise the name given to the Department “Dept. of Ex-servicemen Welfare” will become meaningless.


As of now all the widows of ex-servicemen, whose husbands were drawing two pensions are eligible for two family pensions w.e.f. 27.7.2001 depending upon the date of death. Those who have died prior to 27.7.2001, the family pension will be paid from 27.7.2001. Those who have died after 27.7.2001, the family pension will be paid from the next of day of death.


In these present state of confusion with the Pension Disbursing Agencies, even the living pensioners are struggling to get their correct pension, then who will help these widows to get their 2nd family pension.


The ex-servicemen welfare organizations like IESL, IESM, AFA, Naval Foundation etc., should take up the matter seriously with the government and render justice to these widows.

Department of Pension and Pensioner’s Welfare through its Office Memorandum No. 1/19/96-P&PW(E) dt.19/7/2002 allowed family pension under the EPF Scheme 1995 and the FPS 1971 in addition to the Family Pension under Rule 54 of the CCS (Pension) Rules 1972. This OM clarified only the effective date of original OM dated 27-07-2001 for its effective date i.e. from 27-07-2001 and nothing else. In fact,this date 27-07-2001 has no nexus with the objective sought to be achived by the EPS' 1995 which is effective from 16-11-1995 and the said Scheme was framed by the Parliament which has prevailing effect over the administrative action which can not be binding on the intention of the Legislture. Further, EPS'95 prescribes the contribution @8.33% on the wages of Rs.6500/-p.m. (max) (i.e. 541/- p.m.. If date is fixed effective from 27-07-2001, what happens to be contribution of re-employed employees from 16-11-1995 to 27-07-2001. Hence, the Cut off date 27-07-2001 is illegal and needs to be rectified as the second pension under EPS'95 is contibutory.

Further, though second service pension for re-employment has been granted, yet second family pension fr such service unlike EPS'95 has not been granted which also can be taken up.

A very nicely worded letter to open the eye of the concerned authorities to reissue the letter through news paper and other media for the struggling widows to get their second family pension.Exservicemen organisations should immediately take up the issue with utmost priority.In this case mainly PBORS widows are affected as second employment is done by them due to the truncated defence service.

Dear Veteran Muthu,
My organization has been raising the issue of 2nd Family pension for the widow of ex-serviceman, who drew two pensions during his life time, for the last so many years .It was raised by us with Sixth pay commision also.The commision did mention this demand of ex-servicemen but gave no comments on this point.We again raised this with the committee headed by Secy,Ex-Servicemen Welfare Deptt. Sh.SM Krishna but the Govt has refused it. We are going to raise it again. Dear Muthu please note ..I have changed my old blog .. pjsforpbor.. to... veteran PJS Chhatwal speaks.Please surface and see for yourself. Veteran Prabhjot Singh Chhatwal PLS Retd.

DEFENCE PBOR PAY AND PENSION said...

I am an exserviceman with 15 years of service getting defence pension. Later I joined a PSB and got special vrs in 2001 after 14 years of service. Now, my option for second pension is declined for not completing 15 years bank service. I request your help and advice, whether, 1)I can get service relaxation to get bank pension or 2)is there any possibility to merge the defence service 15 years with banks 14 years service to get ONE pension. pls reply at the earliest. smesan@gmail.com

1.My Late husband Maj K S Rathore, Regiment 4 KUMAON was commissioned in Dec 1975, with 57 Regular from IMA. He took Pre Mature Retirement in 1998. He was drawing pension. He took up a job with the Home Guards, Rajasthan Govt. He served 10+years in this job and would have got his second pension had he been alive.

2. The state government family pension is almost double, that of the Army family pension, for less then half service (22 years in the Army vis a vis 10 years in the Home Guards). The anomaly is that at the time when the family pension is desperately required from both the sources the rules say that I am eligible to draw only on family pension, from the source I choose and have to give up the other family pension. I obviously choose to draw the family pension of Rajasthan Government, being more till OROP is implemented. I will then choose the Army Family Pension after returning the state governments full amount drawn till date.

3. Is the above rule applicable to my case. Can i draw two family pension’s.

Awaiting your reply

Warm regard’s
Mr’s Yogeshwari Rathore

Dear Sir,
I am an Ex Jwo served in Central bank Of India,and eagerly waiting for Govt. orders in this matter.I have known two such widows cases in our bank whose husbunds have served in army and navy who are in receipt of only pension from bank.
I wish govt. would come out with some orders based on the out come of Kochis Tribunals judgement instructing AFRO to pay the second pension to wife of deseased Sgts wife.

Anyone having clear idea about the present state of the issue may kind reply me so that i can guide some effected widows.
