The existing provisions contained in Finance Department’s Memo No.F.8(3)-Fin(G)/99 dated 16.08.1999 indicate that parents who are wholly dependent on the Government Servants when he/she was alive, shall be included in the definition of family in cases where the deceased employee had left behind neither a widow nor a child. Such parents shall be entitled to family pension after the death of the deceased Government servant.
2. Several proposals have been received from various departments seeking clarification on the issue. The matter has been examined in Finance Department. On careful consideration of the matter, the undersigned is directed to clarify that in case the deceased Government Servant is not survived by a widow/widower or a child, the dependent parents become directly eligible to receive family pension. In cases where a deceased Government servant is survived by a widow/ widower or a child, and the position changes subsequently because of death or re-marriage of spouse and/ or death or ineligibility of child /children, the dependent parents shall become eligible for family pension.
3. This is issued with immediate effect.
Under Secretary to the
Government of Tripura.
