The State cabinet in its meeting today has taken a slew of important decisions especially related to the die in harness benefits of the Government employees.
The state government has changed the existing Die in Harness cases to make it more beneficial for the victim families, said Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath.
If a government employee dies within the age of 50-60, his/her family will get full salary and other benefits untill the deceased attains 60 years and then the family pension will come into effect automatically.
However, the family will get government job, he said.
Similarly, if an employee dies at the age below 50 years, his/ her family will get job in the concerned department and if he/she doesn’t get job for one year of wait, his/ her kin or any of family member could get job in other department too. “The cabinet okayed the proposal to provision 15 percent posts of the total vacant posts of each department for die in harness cases”, he said.
“If the victim family doesn’t have candidate to get a government job, the government will give the family a compensation of Rs. 10 lakh which was only Rs. 1 lakh in the previous regime”, he said.
