Govt issues notification announcing amendments in pension rules

President Ram Nath Kovind approved the amendment to the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972.


These rules called as the Central Civil Services (Pension) Second Amendment Rules, 2019 will come into force from October 1, 2019.

Key highlights:
  • The government felt that the need for family pension at enhanced rate is more in the case of a government servant who dies early in his career as his pay at the initial phase of service is much less, the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions said in a statement.
  • The Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972 by a notification dated 19th September, 2019.
  • As per the amended Rule 54, the family of a government servant, who dies within seven years of joining service, will also be eligible for family pension at enhanced rate of 50 per cent of last pay drawn, for a period of 10 years,
  • The families of government servants who died before completion of service of seven years within 10 years before 1st October, 2019, will also be eligible for family pension at enhanced rates with effect from 1st October, 2019.
