F / BC SERIES. BC stands for Battle Casualty.
Eg. F/BC/ 123/1982, F/ WAR/ 123/1982 ,some times F/ TI/ 123/1982 etc.
The award is granted to spouse first, and after the her death it goes to children seniority wise. If the PBOR was not survived with wife or children, then it is granted to mother as first recipient.
The Rate of LFP is the last pay drawn by the deceased :
A Sepoy , Group- D . LFP was Rs.2920 as per Vth PC, CDA cir 282
As per VI th PC, CDA cir 456 it is 9200. ( 5200+200+2000=9200)
Note: If the first recipient dies with in 7 yrs from the date of death of PBOR, then the Second awardees will be paid at the same rate till the period of 7 yrs completed, then the rate will be reduced.
The LFP is granted for the benefits of the entire family members. If the widow does not support her mother in law, then the competent authorities may divide the pension in such a as deemed fit..
If the first recipient ( other than parents dies, the LFP will be granted to the eligible beneficiary as Second Award at the rate of 60% of the first award. i.e at present : First award= 9200.
Second+ 9200 X 60%= 5520.
We understand that still many LFP are being paid only Ordinary family pension by the PDAs , not knowing the category and Rate.
This LFP is further revised as per the latest CDA cir 503.
Now The Rate is calculated on Rank, Group and length of service.;
