Friday, June,28 2013

CHANDIGARH: In continuation of implementation of the recommendation of the 5th Punjab Pay commission regarding pension and other retirement benefits, the Punjab Government has issued instructions regarding payment of ex-gratia for death of a government employee under different circumstances.

Disclosing this here today, a spokesperson of finance department said that where death occurs in harness or the employee is permanently disabled and rendered unfit for further service, the ex-gratia payment shall be made at the rate of Rs. one lakh only on a uniform basis.

He said that in case where death occurs in harness due to causes attributable to service i.e. for reasons which are directly or substantially connected with the performance of official duties and directly is clearly relatable to performance of such duties, the payment of ex-gratia shall be equal to 24 times the revised basic pay of the employee on the date of his/her death, with a minimum of Rs. two lakh and maximum of Rs. four lakhs.

 Similarly if death occurs in performance of duty such as dealing with riots, terrorist attack or enemy action, ex-gratia shall be paid Rs. ten lakhs on a uniform basis, he added.

The Spokesperson further said that these instructions are issued in the light of implementation of the recommendations of the fifth punjab pay commission regarding pension and other retirement benefits and shall be deemed to have come into with effect from 1-1-2006.
