ATTENTION VETERAN BROTHERS SERIES-7




ATTENTION  VETERAN BROTHERS –SERIES  7

KNOW ABOUT EX-GRATIA PAYMENTS TO PRE-1968 RESERVISTS.

The Pre-1-4-1968 reservists had the option of either to :

1)  Opt for pension at the rate of Rs.10/- per month

OR
2)  Opt for a Lump Sum gratuity of Rs. 750/- in lieu of pension.

Most of the reservists  opted for Lump Sum , because they felt that Rs.10/- per month was too less compared to the Lump Sum gratuity of Rs.750/- at that time.

Latyer on, the lump sum optees made  representation to Government for grant of pensionary benefits.  The Govt. was kind enough to sanction monthly Ex-Gratia payment for Reservists and their families.

The condition for Ex-gratia payment was , that they should have:
1)  Opted for lump Sum gratuity of pension.
2)  Has not availed the benefits of rehabilitation assistance granted by Govt
3)  Are not in receipt of any other pension.
4) They should refund the Gratuity amount with interest for getting Ex-gratia pension.
