CORRIGENDUM

Subject: Grant of Dearness Relief to Central Freedom Fighter Pensioners w.e.f. 01.01.2022- regarding

Sir,

I am directed to refer to this Ministry’s letter No.45/08/2017-FF(P) dated 8th April, 2022 (copy enclosed) regarding 32% Dearness Relief to be paid to the freedom fighter pensioners w.e.f, 01.01.2022 in which the figures shown against s.no.4 [i.e. Department parents/eligible daughters (maximum 3 daughters at any point of time)] under column 4 the amount 16380/- to 18900/- may be read as 17,160/- to 19,800/-). The corrected table reads as follows:

SL
NO
CATEGORY OF FREEDOM FIGHTERS BASIC AMOUNT OF PENSION (PER MONTH) ENHANCED AMOUNT OF PENSION AFTER ADDING 32% DR (PER MONTH) W.E.F. 01.01.2022
1 Ex-Andaman Political prisoners/spouses Rs.30,000/- Rs.39,600/-
2 Freedom fighters who suffered outside British India/spouses Rs.28,000/- Rs.36,960/-
3 Other Freedom fighters / spouses including INA Rs.26,000/- Rs.34,320/-
4 Dependent parents/ eligible daughters (maximum 3 daughters at any point of time) 50% of the sum that would have been admissible to the freedom fighters, i.e. in the range of Rs.13,000/- to Rs.15,000/- 50% of the sum that would have been admissible to the freedom fighters, ie. in the range of Rs.16,380/- to Rs.19,900/-

2. Further, it is also clarified that as per Policy Guidelines dated 06.08.2014, TDS is not applicable in respect of Central Samman Pension.

3. This issues with the approval of Competent Authority.

Yours faithfully,

(Meenu Batra)
