What is the rule of commutation of pension in case of family pension? If a person had commuted a part of his pension, will it be commuted from his family pension too after his death?
DCRB Rules in this regard-
Rule 103. Rate of family pension in case of death of a Government servant-For a period of seven years from the date following the date of death or till the date on which the officer would have reached the normal age of superannuation had he remained alive, whichever period is shorter, the pension pay able will be at fifty per cent, of the basic pay last drawn subject to a maximum of twice the pension admissible under rule 102, provided that the said benefit will not be admissible if the Government servant has put in less than 7 years continuous service prior to his death. Pension payable thereafter will be at the rates laid down in rule 102. This additional benefit will be admissible with effect from 1st April 1969.
Note.—The method of determining the amount of family pension under this rule would be calculated as follows:
Pension payable under the rule 102 should first be calculated at 50 per cent, of the basic pay last drawn. Simultaneously the pension admissible under rule 101 should be determined by applying the maximum and minimum limits. The pension thus arrived at should then be doubled. The resultant amount or 50 per cent, of the basic pay last drawn whichever is less is the amount of family pension admissible under this rule. The family pension shall be rounded off to the next rupee at the final stage.
