SECOND FAMILY PENSION
I have given sufficient information about the eligibility of second family pension to the widows of the re-employed ex-servicemen in public sector banks as per latest government orders. Please refer the postings in my Blog “indianexserviceman.blogspot.com” dated.14.09.2009.
So far the Department of ex-servicemen welfare or the record offices has not issued any circular to this effect. I personally know few widows who are eligible for both defence family pension and bank’s family pension as per the latest government orders are now drawing only bank’s family pension.
The Department of Ex-servicemen Welfare and the respective record offices should take up the matter and arrange for the release of the 2nd family pension without any delay.
I request all the Ex-servicemen welfare associations to take up the case on top priority.
