No. 200-F (Pen) Dated, the 26th Feb, 2007.

MEMORANDUM

Before allowing the family pension for life to any son or daughter of a pensioner in terms of rule 104A of WBS (DCRB) Rules, 71 the sanctioning authority of such pension is required to be satisfied that the handicap is of such a nature as to prevent him or her from earning his/her livelihood and the same is required to be evidenced by a certificate to be obtained from a medical officer not below the rank of Civil Surgeon Stating out as far as Possible, the exact mental or physical condition of the child.

After careful consideration of the matter, the Governor has been pleased to adopt the following procedure for the redressal of such inconvenience in line with that followed by the ministry of Welfare, Govt, of India, vide their No. 4-2/ 83-HW III dt. 06.08.86 and the Department of Social Welfare, Government of West Bengal vide notification No. 2101-SW/1A-14/97 dt. 08.07.99.

No. 201-F (Pen) Dated, the 26th Feb, 2007

MEMORANDUM

At present the son or daughter of a Government employee who is suffering from any disorder or disability of mind or is physically crippled or disabled so as to render him or her unable to earn a living even after attaining the age of 25 years, the family pension shall be payable to such son or daughter for life subject to some terms and conditions laid down in rule 104A of WBS (DCRB) Rules, ’71. But in case of a handicapped child it is difficult to claim family pension for life in terms of the above rule when his/her turn comes as there is no provision .to incorporate the name of the minor children other than spouse in the P.P.O.

After careful consideration of the matter, the Governor has been pleased to adopt the following procedure for the redressal of such difficulty in the lines as followed by Government of India :—

i) The disability as mentioned in rule 104A of WBS (DCRB) Rules, ’71 when manifests itself in the child which makes him/her unable to earn his/her living, the fact Should be brought to the notice of the P.S.A. duly supported by Medical Certificate issued by a Medical Officer not below the rank of Civil Surgeon.

ii) The PSA shall on receipt of the said form get it pasted on the Service Book of the Govt, employee and acknowledge the same.

iii) In case where P.P.O. has already been issued without mentioning the name of the children eligible for family pension, the pensioner, if he/she so desires, can furnish a list of eligible children to the PSA, inter-alia, indicating also if any child is handicapped, supported by a Medical Certificate as in (i) above. Receipt of the same will also be acknowledged by the PSA.

iv) The acknowledgement as in sub-para (ii) or (iii) above may be preserved by the family members or by the legal guardian in case of mentally handicapped person. The production of a acknowledgement will, however, not be a pre-condition to the processing of claim for family pension.

v) The spouse of the deceased pensioner/Govt. employee can be allowed to furnish the details of the eligible children including handicapped children if not furnished by the Govt, employee/pensioner before his death.

vi) When the claim for family pension in terms of Rule 104A of WBS (DCRB) Rules, 71 arises, the legal guardian of the child as mentioned previously should make an application to the PSA with a fresh Medical Certificate from a medical officer, not below the rank of Civil Surgeon to the effect that the child still suffers from the disability.

Necessary amendment to the relevant rules of the State Government will be made in due course.
Note : The Words ‘Civil Surgeon’ have been clarified in Memo No. 200-F (Pen) dt. 26.02.07, a copy of which is enclosed.

Hi Bristy. I would like to reply you as follows:-
bristy ray Wrote:1) Is there any additional facilities that can be added to our family pension?
I dont think so.
bristy ray Wrote:2) After my parents death will I be eligible to get family pension during my whole life?
You will be eligible to get the family pension only if you furnish a certificate issued by a Medical Board to the effect that the handicap is of such a nature as to prevent you from earning your livelihood.
bristy ray Wrote:If yes, what I need to do for apply my pension?
Please read the above mentioned G.O. carefully, the following steps should be taken as per my knowledge.
1. Visit a Superintendent of a local Govt. Hospital and file an application for obtaining a Certificate to the effect that the handicap is of such a nature as to prevent you from earning your livelihood. You may enclose copies of the Govt. Orders with your application. I am enclosing herewith the PDF file.
2. After obtaining the certificate your father should visit his Office and file a list of eligible children for family pension including you as a eligible person along with a copy of the certificate. An acknowledged of the same should be issued by the Pension Sanctioning Authority.
3. After death of your parents, you should file an application to the Pension Sanctioning Authority with a fresh Medical Certificate to the effect that you still suffer from the disability and the handicap is of such a nature as to prevent you from earning your livelihood.
