I am a central govt employee. My father is a railway pensioner. My mother stays with me and father lived separately. May I claim medical claim or LTC for my mother since she us entirely dependent on me.
Yes, but she should not get benefits in the railway department.
Can you share me the rule position?
Kindly, Refer CCS (LTC) Rules, 1988 under Home Town LTC Rule (h).
Point (h) above speaks about husband/wife/children. Question is about separated parents, where father is a pensioner.
As far as LTC is concerned, “Family” means:-
(i) the Government servant’s wife or husband, as the case may be, and two surviving unmarried children or step children wholly dependent on the Government servant, irrespective of whether they are residing with the Government servant or not;
(ii) married daughters who have been divorced, abandoned or separated from their husbands and widowed daughters and are residing with the Government servant and are wholly dependent on the Government servant;
(iii) parents and/or step mother residing with and wholly dependent on the Government servant;
(iv) unmarried minor brothers as well as unmarried, divorced, abandoned, separated from their husbands or widowed sisters residing with and wholly dependent on the Government servant, provided their parents are either not alive or are themselves wholly dependent on the Government servant.
Should I give any declaration on this. When I told my office they ask me to give declaration though I have noted my mother as dependent in SD.
Basic principle is that, any dependent should avail facilities from any one of them.
that means either from son or father. If she is dependent. that means she would be dependent either of them.
Not on bothm
