Office Memorandum

Subject: Documents regarding income required to be submitted for deciding eligibility for grant of family pension under Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 2021.

The undersigned is directed to say that Department of Pension has notified the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 2021 in supersession of the Central Civil Service (Pension) Rules, 1972. Rule 50 of the Central Civil Service (Pension) Rules, 2021 deals with payment of family pension on death of a Government servant/pensioner.

2. In accordance with Rule 50(12) of the Central Civil Service (Pension) Rules, 2021, family pension to a member of the family (other than spouse) of a deceased Government servant/pensioner is paid/continued, if he/she is not earning his/her livelihood. A member of the family, other than a son or a daughter or a sibling suffering from a mental or physical disability, is deemed to be earning his or her livelihood if his or her income from other sources is equal to or more than the minimum family pension (i.e. Rs. 9000/- per month) and the dearness relief admissible thereon. However, a child /sibling suffering from a mental or physical disability is deemed to be not earning his or her livelihood, if his or her overall income from sources other than family pension is less than the entitled family pension and the dearness relief admissible thereon, payable on death of the Government servant or pensioner concerned.

3. In order to decide the eligibility for family pension, a member of the family, other than the widow or widower of the deceased Government servant or pensioner, is required to submit, along with the claim for family pension, a copy of the last Income Tax Return filed by the said member of the family with the Income Tax Department. In case the said member of the family informs that he or she has not filed the Income Tax Return with the Income Tax Department, he or she shall submit a certificate of income from a sub-divisional magistrate. In case the member of the family is not able to submit either a copy of the Income Tax Return or a certificate of income from a sub-divisional magistrate, the Head of Office may rely on any other document produced by the said member of the family in support of his or her claim regarding income and decide the eligibility of the said member of the family for family pension accordingly.

4. All Ministries/Departments are requested that the above provisions relating to documents regarding income required to be submitted for deciding eligibility for grant of family pension under Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 2021 may be brought to the notice of the personnel dealing with the pensionary benefits in the Ministry/Department and attached/subordinate offices thereunder, for strict implementation.
