The undersigned is directed to refer to the Ministry of Earth Sciences’ SFS File No. DGM-HQ-43011(10)/5/2022 Note dated 8/8/2022 regarding seeking guidance/direction of this Department on the subject mentioned above.

It is stated that there is no provision under CCS (Pension) Rules, 2021 or CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 to delete the name of daughter from Pension Payment Order (PPO) of the Government servant. The daughter is assumed to be a member of family of Government servant as and when intimated by the Government servant in the prescribed proforma. Hence, the name of family members will remain in the PPO. The eligibility for Family Pension is decided after demise of Government servant according to existing rules. Ministry of Earth Sciences may take action accordingly.
