3. Enclose aXerox copy of PPO (Both for civil and defence pension).
4. If you have already applied for family pension earlier for defence family pension, and it was refused by the record office, please mention the reason and attach a xerox copy of the correspondence.
5. Please inform to the record office, if the endorsement of family pensionis pending with them due to previous government orders.
6. Enclose a copy of the govt. order to grant 2nd family pension.
Wait for the reply from the respective offices for further action.

  2. Sir you have given the procedure to get dual pension from the defence side but how about from the civil side? My husband served in the Indian railways for 19 years and as per the dual family pension circular i m eligible for the 2nd pension i.e, from the railways and even approached the railway deptt with the copy of cir 504 but they are telling that they have not got any information from the ministry of railways. kindly tell me what can i do in these matter.

  3. Thanks for helping. My father was getting two pensions (Army and BSF). After his death in Jan 1998, my mother is getting only one family pension from Army. There are many similar cases a few in our village. Some may not be having PPO copy of other pension which they stopped getting after the death of their husband. Then what to do? What I understand, I have to approach BSF. If you kindly clarify both the points then it can save lots of time.
    Regards.

    Thanks for your information. After having discharged fro Air Force, i was re-employed in Railways. At the time of my retirement from re-employed service, i was asked to obtain NOC from Air Force for the sanction of Family pension from Railways which was financially beneficial to me. I did the same and got my family pension sanctioned from Railways after getting NOC and Corr.PPO de-notifying my wife`s name.
    Since i am eligible for the dual family pension now, i applied to AFRO, Dy CDA(AF) with all the relevant enclosures by speed post and through e.mail on 30-06-2013.
    Kindly advise me further
    Regards

  5. Sir, my husband joined in Army 1963 and retired from Army on 31.03.1991 and joined in Civil Service in 09.06.1992 but suddenly he expired due to heart attack on 26.06.1999, so after the death of my late husband I opted pension from Army and now orders have been issued by MOD and now I want to know that whether I am entitled for family pension from Civil Side or not.

    Please clarify to me
    widow of subedar major (Hony)
