<p>The spouse receives the family pension first in the event that a deceased government employee or pensioner leaves behind a spouse. The regulations provide that other family members may only apply for family pensions once the spouse of a deceased government employee or pensioner passes away or loses eligibility.</p>
<p>In light of recent regulation changes, the Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare (DoPPW) now permits female employees to choose their kid or children for the family pension in preference to their spouse.</p>
<p>“The amendment allows disbursement of family pension of a female government servant to an eligible child in precedence to her husband, in all cases where she has filed a divorce petition or a petition under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act or cases under Indian Penal Code,” V Srinivas, the secretary of the DoPPW, told</p>
<p>He stated that after reviewing the comments submitted, DoPPW worked with the Ministry of Women and Child Development to create the change.</p>

“The amendment is progressive in nature and empowers women employees in family pension cases,” said Srinivas, an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer of Rajasthan cadre who was born in 1989.</p>
<p>According to a DoPPW order, “such female government servant/female pensioner may make a request for grant of family pension after her death to her eligible child/children, in precedence to her husband” if the woman has filed a case against her husband under the Dowry Prohibition Act, the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, or the Indian Penal Code, or if her divorce proceedings are still pending in court.</p>
<p>According to the DoPPW, it has received numerous referrals from ministries and departments asking for guidance on whether a female employee or pensioner of the government may designate her eligible child or children for family pension in lieu of her spouse in the event that marital discord results in the filing of divorce papers in a court of law.</p>
<p>According to the order, a female employee may request in writing, “during the pendency of any of the aforesaid proceedings, family pension may be granted to her eligible child(ren) in precedence to her spouse,” to the head of the office in question in the event of her death.</p>
