Staff Side stated that government have already included widowed/ divorced/ unmarried and dependent daughters, who have attained 25 years of age, in the definition of family for family pension. Dependent disabled siblings (i.e. real brothers/ sisters) are also now eligible for family pension. Unmarried/ divorced/ widowed dependent real sister of a Government servant / pensioner may also be made eligible for family pension.

Reply of the Official Side :
It was a considered decision of the government to grant family pension to dependent disabled brothers and sisters of Central Government Employees / Pensioners. There are no fresh grounds to reconsider this decision and to extend family pension to all dependent siblings.

The Chairman desired that this may be re-examined
