Govt of the Pakistan Finance Division has issued Notification No. 1(1)-Reg.6/2008-44 dated 8th April 2014 in connection with the clarification of Grant of Invalid Pension to an Individual Having Less Than 5 Years Service.
There has been made amendment in Article 474-B of CSR vide Notification No. F.1(1)-Reg.6/2008 dated 24th June 2008 (SRO 58 (KE)/08 dated 24th June 2008. The query raised by MAG is as under:
Whether the condition of 5 years service has been abolished in newly added sub-clause ‘aa’ in the light of Finance Division dated 24-06-2008.
The case has been examined and it is clarified that sub-clause ‘aa’ is an addition in article 474-B to extend benefit of pension, as per eligibility of invalid pension to those civil servants who are unable to work and retired on account of invalidity due to accident, illness, terrorism or earthquake during service having less than 10 years service but more than five years service and who otherwise are not entitled for pension under Article 474-B ‘a’. Therefore condition of five years service has not been abolished.
