Disability compensation will be given to government employees for being crippled in duty

Government employees will receive disability compensation if they become disabled while on duty. Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Friday said that compensation has been increased for all disabled employees of the central government who are crippled while on duty and remain in the job despite having such disabilities.

Singh said an order was issued on Friday which would provide huge relief to the Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) personnel, especially CRPF, BSF, CISF, etc., due to their work requirements and duty environment. Disability during discharge usually occurs in their case.

State Minister for Employees Singh said the new order would eliminate a discrepancy in the service rules considering the problems facing employees. According to a statement issued by the Ministry of Employees, the government’s 2009 order did not provide for such compensation to government employees employed on January 1, 2004 or under the National Pension System (NPS). Come on.

Added to this, however, with the new order issued by the Pension Department in the Ministry of Personnel, the workers covered under NPS will get benefits under Rule (9) of the Additional General Pension (EOP). Singh said the Modi government was making every effort to simplify the rules and remove discriminatory clauses.

According to the statement, Singh said that all these new initiatives are aimed at providing better living conditions to government employees, whether they become pensioners after retirement or family pensioners or senior citizens.
