Authorities workers to get ‘disability compensation’ in the event that they get disabled in line of obligation: Jitendra Singh
The order will bring great relief, especially to young employees of the Central Armed Police (CAPF) of the CRPF, BSF, CISF, etc., since in their case there are general reports of disabilities in performing tasks
“Invalidity allowance” has been extended to all central government employees who are disabled on duty and remain on duty despite such disabilities, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said on Friday.
He said an order was issued on Friday that would bring great relief especially to young Central Armed Police (CAPF) personnel from CRPF, BSF, CISF, etc., as their case is generally disabled due to limitations in the Fulfillment of tasks is reported as work requirement and hostile or difficult work environment.
“It should be noted that this new regulation will eliminate an anomaly in the service rules, given the difficulties faced by the staff,” said Minister of State for Personnel, Singh.
A government decision of 2009 did not provide for such compensation for civil servants who were appointed on or after January 1, 2004 and who are covered by the National Pension Scheme (NPS), according to a statement by the Ministry of Personnel.
“With the new order of the Ministry of Pensions in the Ministry of Personnel, however, the employees falling under NPS also receive benefits under rule (9) of the extraordinary pension (EOP),” it says.
In other words, if a government official is hindered in the performance of his duties and that hindrance is attributed to the civil service, in that case he will be paid a flat-rate allowance on arrival if he continues to serve despite the disability at the activated value of the disabling element with reference to the Commutation table valid from time to time, it says in the declaration.
Mr Singh said the Modi government was making every effort to simplify the rules and remove discriminatory clauses.
“The ultimate goal of all of these new initiatives is to make life easier for civil servants even after they have become obsolete and retirees or family retirees or senior citizens,” he was quoted in the statement as saying.
In another employee-friendly decision, the Department of Human Resources recently abolished the 10-year minimum skill benefit for retirement when a government official is incapacitated and retired from government due to physical or medical ailments.
Accordingly, rule 38 of the CCS rules (pension rules) was changed to the effect that an invalid pension in the amount of 50 percent of the last earnings is granted even if the employee has not achieved the minimum qualification performance of 10 years.
In addition, another reform of the pension rules decided to change the rule and said to give a higher pension to the family of a worker who died while on duty before completing the required service of at least seven years.
“As a result, the family pension of 50 percent of last earnings is now also allowed for the family of workers who die before the end of seven years of service,” the statement added.
