SUBJECT : Restoration of withheld portion of Ordinary Family Pension to widow of ESM in Nepal.
The proposal regarding restoration of withheld portion of Ordinary family pension to the Widow of ESM in Nepal has been under consideration by the Government of India. As per extant provision, ordinary family pension can be divided in the event of a pensioner having more than one wife. Plural marriages are apparently very common in Nepal. Therefore, Record office, Indian Embassy has recommended apportionment of ordinary family pension depending upon the number of wives recorded. PCDS(P) is the pension sanctioning authority and full share of family pension to a claimant is not agreed unless it is established that the other widows whose names are recorded are dead.
