PROCEDURE FOR PROCESSING OF ECHS APPLICATION
IN CASE OF MARITAL DISCORD / FAMILY DISPUTE AND
PARENTS OF SOLDIERS AFTER DEATH IN HARNESS

1.A number of petitions are recd from spouses of veterans as a consequence of marital discord and parents of the serving soldiers who died in harness wherein the primary beneficiary does not apply for ECHS membership for the dependents. The extant rules do not permit anyone else to apply for ECHS membership except the primary member.

2. ECHS is akin to CGH’S in many regards and ECHS rules are similar too. Since the CGHS rules extend CGHS facilities to a judicially separated wife (CGHS Rule Book, Chapter 3, Page 25), it is axiomatic that since a judicially separated wife is auth CGHS facilities, a spouse during the period of marital discord will also be allowed CGHS facilities. Further, the meaning of ‘family’ as per Govt Rules are as under :-

(a) Husband/wife, including more than one wife and a judicially separated wife.
(b) Parents (excluding step parents), subject to the following:-

(i) In case of adoption, adoptive parents and not real parents.
(ii) If adoptive father has more than one wife, only the first wife: and.
(iii) In case of female employees, parents or parents-in-law, at her option, subject to the conditions of dependency and residence etc. being satisfied.

(c) Children, including step children, legally adopted children, children taken as wards by the Government servant under the Guardians and Ward Act, 1980, provided that such a ward lives with him, treated as a family member and is given the status of a natural born child through a special will executed by that Government servant :-

(i) Son is eligible till he starts earning or attains the age of 25 years or gets married, whichever is earlier.
(ii) Daughter is eligible till she starts earning, or gets married.

(d) Sons suffering from permanent disability either physically or mentally, without any age-limit.

(i) Disability means blindness, low vision, leprosy- cured, hearing  impairment, locomotor disability, mental illness (includes schizophrenia), autism, cerebral palsy or a combination of any two or more of such conditions and includes a person suffering from several multiple disability.
(ii)’Permanent disability’ means a person with 40% or more of one or more

(e) Dependent divorced/abandoned or separated from their husband/widowed daughters (irrespective of age).

3. The ECHS facilities will hence be extended to the spouse/her dependent children/  eligible parents/dependents, during the period of marital discord.

4. In so far as, the parents of ESM are concerned, there are cases where the spouse of ESM becomes the primary member after the demise of the ESM, but due to strained relations (family dispute) is reluctant to obtain ECHS membership for the parents, despite their meeting the dependent criteria including income criteria. Such cases will also be addressed under the meaning of the term ‘family’ and ECHS facility will be made applicable to eligible persons.

5. The procedure for processing of ECHS application in case of marital discord / family dispute cases will be as under :-

(a) Spouse/ dependent children and dependent parents will be eligible to apply for ECHS membership on production all supporting documents for eligibility of self and his / her children and similarly for dependent parents.

(b) On the basis of ibid provision, the spouse I dependent children / dependent parents should apply to DIAV for Army, DESA for Navy & DAV for Air Force who will facilitate in obtaining copy of PPO from respective Record offices. The application should be duly supported with an identity proof in the form of Aadhaar Card, PAN Card, Ration Card, Marriage Part II order & Dependent Card issued by District Soldier Board. DIAV/DESA/DAV will endorse a letter to the primary beneficiary to give him/her an opportunity to apply for cards himself/herself within 30 days for eligible family members. In case of non receipt of reply within 30 days / refusal to apply, obtaining copy of PPO will be facilitated for the applicant.

(c) Having obtained the copy of the PPO, the spouse / dependent children I dependent parents should apply through ‘Online Application’ portal of ECHS website for issue of ECHS Smart Card. Once the online application is successfully filled ‘up alongwith payment for the card (s), the indl will be able to generate ‘Temporary Slip’ for the affected persons. The same will be activated at dependent Polyclinics with a validity of three months at a time or till receipt of card whichever is earlier. The Temporary Slip will allow need treatment to the concerned persons till receipt of Smart Card.

(d) In marital discord cases, the ECHS membership granted will be for a limited period of one year or till resolution divorce whichever is earlier. The same will be renewed in case of status quo beyond a year.

(e) The membership of spouse will be discontinued once a divorce is granted & The responsibility of informing of divorce will be that of the primary beneficiary / ESM. If not informed and any treatment taken by the divorced lady post divorce recovery due will be on the primary beneficiary / ESM including for those children staying with him / her.

(f) It will be responsibility of dependent parents (in cases of serving soldiers died in harness) to give yearly affidavit for income criteria. Wife of deceased soldier should also inform if parents have more income which makes them ineligible. Responsibility of recovery will be on primary beneficiary.

(g) Membership of children will be based on the eligibility criteria as governed in terms of age, income and marriage criteria applicable as laid down vide CGHS letter No MH & FW No 4-24/96-C&P/CGHS/CGHS(P) dated 31 May 2007.

(h) The onus of informing of divorce for marital discord cases and income criteria for dependent parents will be of primary beneficiary.

6. This has approval of AG.

Sub: Payment of enhanced Monetary Allowance attached to pre and post independence Gallantry Awards.

Ref: This office Circular No. 9 dated 10/06/2011 and Circular No. 30 dated 22/12/2017.
The rates of Monetary Allowance attached to pre and post independence Gallantary Awards have been revised by the Govt w.e.f. 30/03/2011 and 01/08/2017 and the same have been issued to all the Pension Disbursing Agencies (PDAs) vide this office Circular No. 9 dated 10/06/2011 and Circular No. 30 dated 22/12/2017 respectively. These circulars are also available on this office web site www.pcdapension.nic.in.

However, complaints from various agencies as well as the pensioners/family pensioners & Pensioners’ Associations are being received at various levels including Ministry of Defence (MoD) stating that PDAs are not making payment of enhanced rate of Monetary Allowance attached to pre and post independence Gallantry Awards.

On examining the cases, it has been noticed that monetary allowance of Gallantry award has neither been revised as per this office Circular No. 9 dated 10/06/2011 nor Circular No. 30 dated 22/12/2017. Non-revision of monetary allowance of Gallantry Awards by the PDAs has resulted in huge arrears. Non-payment of dues to the pensioners/family pensioners as well as accumulation of such cases has been viewed seriously by the MoD. The MoD has further directed to ensure that such incidents do not recur.

Therefore, PDAs are requested to review all cases of monetary allowance attached to pre and post independence Gallantry Awards and ensure that revision as per circulars mentioned above has been carried out by them and payment is being made at correct rates. The Pension Disbursing Agencies are also requested to submit detailed status report on payment of correct rate of Monetary Allowance attached to pre and post independence Gallantry Awardees.

Details of Gallantry awardees extracted from pension payment scrolls for the month of January, 2018 received from the Banks in respect of whom monetary allowances are still awaiting for revision in terms of the above circulars is being forwarded separately to each CPPC for immediate revision of the same and to ensure credit the payments along with arrears in pensioners/family pensioners Bank Account. PDAs other than Banks are requested to review all cases of Gallantry awardees and confirm to this office that payment is being made as per the above quoted circulars.

Eligibility of Divorced Daughter of Armed Forces Personnel for Grant of Family Pension

Eligibility of Divorced Daughter of Armed Forces Personnel for Grant of Family Pension

As per Ministry of Defence (MoD) letter of September 2015, presently only those children who are dependent and meet other conditions of eligibility for family pension at the time of death of the Government servant or his/her spouse, whichever is later, are eligible for family pension. Accordingly, divorced daughters who fulfil other conditions are eligible for family pension if a decree of divorce had been issued by the competent court during the life time of at least one of the parents.

The Government has been receiving grievances from various quarters that the divorce proceedings are a long drawn procedure which take many years before attaining finality. There are many cases in which the divorce proceedings of a daughter of a Government employee/pensioner had been instituted in the competent court during the life time of one or both but none was alive by the time the decree of divorce was granted by the competent authority.

The matter has been examined and it has been decided vide Ministry of Defence letter dated 17 November 2017 to grant family pension to a divorced daughter of Armed Forces personnel in such cases where the divorce proceedings has been filed in a competent court during the life time of the employee/pensioner or his/her spouse but divorce took place after their death – provided that the claimant fulfils all other conditions for grant of family pension. In such cases, the family pension will commence from the date of divorce.

7th Pay Commission : Payment of Washing Expenditure to Industrial Employees with revised rate – BPMS requests

7th Pay Commission : Payment of Washing Expenditure to Industrial Employees with revised rate – BPMS requests

BHARATIYA PRATIRAKSHA MAZDOOR SANGH
(AN ALL INDIA FEDERATION OF DEFENCE WORKERS)
(AN INDUSTRIAL UNIT OF B.M.S.)

REF: BPMS / MOD / Allowances / 48A (7/2/R)

Dated: 01.10.2017

To,
The Secretary,
Govt of India, Min of Defence,
South Block, DHQ PO,
New Delhi – 110011

Subject: Payment of “Washing Expenditure” to Industrial Employees with revised rate.

Respected Sir,

With due regards, it is submitted that the industrial personnel in Min of Defence have been authorized for protective clothing/garments such as water-proofs, warm overcoats, overall, Dangries, Apron and protective accessories such as gum boots, boiler suits, goggles and gauntlets etc. These protective clothing & accessories are being issued to the specified categories whose duties require the issue of these accessories. Protective garments and accessories are provided either as a protection against inclement weather for those who works out-doors or against hazards such as are encountered in factories etc (kindly refer Para 1 & 2 of Chapter 64 – Staff Amenities, 3rd CPC Report and Para 26.44 of 4th CPC Report).

For the washing of some of these protective clothing garments, all the concerned industrial workers employed in Army Ordnance Corps were granted ‘Washing Allowance’ Rs. 4/ per month per worker and this amount was revised to Rs. 8/- per month vide MoD letter No. 82147/P.CIo/OS- 10A/2876/D(O-II), Dated 08 Sep. 1998 (copy enclosed).

Later, a corrigendum was issued vide MoD Letter No. 82147/P.CIo/OS-10A/1626/D(O-II), Dated 06 May 1999 (copy enclosed) to define that “Washing Allowance” mentioned in the letter dated 08.09.1998 will be “Washing Expenditure”. In due course, this “Washing Expenditure” has been revised on the introduction of subsequent Central Pay Commissions.

Now, on the recommendation of 7th CPC “Washing Allowance” being granted for the washing of uniform has been abolished and subsumed in dress allowance in respect of Nurses as per DoE, Min of Fin, Resolution No. 11-1/2016-IC, Dated 06.07.2017. It has to be kept in the mind that the “Washing Expenditure” being granted to industrial personnel for washing of protective clothing has not been abolished or subsumed in the dress allowance and there is no mention of “Washing Expenditure” in the 7th CPC’s Report or in the Resolution of Govt of India dated 06.07.2017.

In such circumstances, you are requested to take appropriate action so that entitled industrial employees may be granted the “Washing Expenditure” unflagging with revised rate.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours
Enclosed: As mentioned

Secretary/BPMS &
Member, JCM-II Level Council (MOD)

Subject: Stoppage of Holiday Over-Time in Ordnance Factories – Protest of.

Reference: MoD ID No.DDP-P0012/8/2017-D(Prod-II) dt.08-08-2017.

Respected Sir,

I have been directed to bring the following for your kind immediate intervention.

Vide Ministry of Defence letter cited under reference above, Ordnance Factory Board has been directed to completely stop Holiday Overtime in the Factories.

In this connection we submit that the said order issued by concerned officials is totally unjustified and is without proper application of mind, suffice to say that Over time in the Ordnance Factories is not granted as a matter of routine or luxury but there is a time tested and logical formula vis-à-vis production output on the basis of which the action is taken and it is quantifiable.

Here it may also be pertinent to note that as per the annual statement of accounts of the factories, the total cost of labour on the cost of production is constant between 12 to 13% whereas other elements like Material, Fixed Over heads ,Variable Over heads consumes bulk of cost of production.

Thus targeting Labour to cut cost is not only an unprofessional approach but also shows the biased mindset of the concerned Officials of MoD which is adversely affecting the moral, dedication of the employee and output of the OFB organization.

There is large scale resentment amongst employees as a result of which whimsical diktat of the Ministry and we seek your immediate personal intervention in the matter to provide justice to the workmen.

We therefore once again demand that status quo ante be restored, pending further discussion on the matter.

Thanking You,

Sincerely yours
