Subject: Clarification regarding Declaration of Employment/Independent income for claim under dependent family pension under the Swatantrata Sainik Samman Pension Scheme, 1980 now renamed as “Swatantrata Sainik Samman Yojana”.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Ministry’s letter of even number dated 3.3.2016 issuing clarification regarding review of policy relating to eligibility for dependent family pension under the above-mentioned Scheme. It has been clarified vide 0.M. dated 3.3.2016 that all the spouses/daughters have to submit a declaration regarding their.employment/indepenclent income as per the revised Annexure-VIl issued by Tehsildar or Revenue Officer Sr. to Tehsildar.
It has come to the notice of this Ministry that in some States the employment/income certificate issuing authority is not the Tehsildar but some other officers in different ranks. Hence, to remove this anomaly, it has been decided that frarn now onwards the banks are advised to accept declaration on employment/independent income issued by the designated officer and equivalent to Tehsildar for this purpose in the concerned State.
