Respected Madam,

Sub: Review of the Income criteria for the dependent parents of Government employees in the wake of the recent legislation of “Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior citizens Act 2007”.

The above demand was discussed as Item No.23 of the Standing Committee meeting of the National Council (JCM) held on 7-3-2019. The extract from the minutes of the above meeting is given below for your kind ready reference.

‘Staff side requested to consider removing the enactment of the above act by the Parliament, to enable the dependent parents of Govt. employees to avail medical treatment, since the Act has made it mandatory for the Children to care for their parents at the old age. The CAT Ernakulam Bench has also given a judgment in this regard.

Chairman desired that the Min. of Health may review this issue.’

The Ministry of Health have not yet taken a favorable decision to implement the above provisions of the “Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act 2007”. It is therefore requested that since the CAT Ernakulam Judgment was already implemented for the petitioner i¢ is requested that a General Government order may please be issued for extending the benefit of the above Act to all the
Central Government employees.

Thanking you.

Yours sincerely,

(SHIVA GOPAL MISHRA)
Secretary

    Dear Staff news team,
    There are cases,where the Dependant parents in receipt of minimum pension ceased to be the beneficiaries when the parents attained age of 80 as their minimum pension got enhanced by an increment of 20%. This factor also needs to be kept in view.
