Government of the Pakistan, Establishment Division has issued Notification No. 8/08/2016-E-2 dated 8-09-2017 in connection with Notification of Assistance Package Missing Govt Employee. Detail is as under:
The undersigned is directed to say that while disposing a Summary of this Division on the above subject, the Prime Minister has been pleased to approve that federal government employees who go missing during service and are not recovered within a period of twelve months from the date of disappearance, and where there is a reasonable presumption of their having died,. shall be treated at par with federal government employees who die during service to the extent of payment of compensation and retirement benefits etc., subject to the condition that where such employee is recovered alive, before or after the date of superannuation, the part of compensation linked to the presumption of death during service shall be paid back to the government or adjusted against pension payments of the employee.
However, since only few federal government employees have gone missing during service, the Prime Minister has desired that their cases be submitted individually, with complete justification, for his orders rather than seeking a blanket approval.
- All Ministries /Division are request to take further necessary action in light of the above decision of the Prime Minister.
Special thanks to Mr. Muhammad Imtiaz for sending the copy of the Notification of Assistance Package Missing Govt Employee.
