Government of Pakistan, Finance Division has issued Notification No. F.2 (2)-Reg.6/2015-894 dated 10-02-2015 in connection with Clarification of Two Pensions. The detail can be read on the copy of the Notification. Some points on the same matter are as under:
Here is a very important and very good news regarding family pension. It has been categorically confirmed by the Finance Division through their O.M. No.F.2(2)-Reg.6/2015-894 dated 10 Dec 2015 that there is no embargo upon the widowed / divorced daughter of a deceased pensioner to receive her father’s pension in addition to other sources of income, including:
(a) pension of her late husband;
(b) her own salary in government service; or
(c) her own pension as a retired government servant.
In fact, only the father, mother, brother u/21, eldest unmarried sister, widowed sisters, to whom pension of a deceased government servant cannot be allowed “without production of a reasonable proof that such a person was dependent upon the deceased government servant (pensioner) for support”.
The condition of producing such a reasonable proof does not apply to all eligible widows and children and grand children (including widowed / divorced daughter).
Let us hope all Provincial governments also issue similar orders at the earliest.
Special Thanks to Mr. Agha Amir for sending the details of Notification of Clarification of Two Pensions by Finance Division.
