Grant of family pension to childless widow of a deceased Central Government employee after her re-marriage has been clarified. It has now been decided that the childless widow of a deceased Government employee who had expired before January 1, 2006, will be eligible for family pension following the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission irrespective of the fact that the remarriage had taken place prior to / on or after January 1, 2006.
The financial benefits in such cases, however, will accrue from January 1,2006. This would be subject to the fulfillment of certain conditions laid down. The income criterion includes that the income of the widow from all sources does not become equal to or higher than the minimum prescribed for family pension in the Central Government.
