OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Subject: Clarification on family pension admissible to NPS employees on their death attributable to Govt. service – regarding.
The undersigned is directed to refer to CPAO d.o. letter No. CPAO/NPS CRPF-BSF/2017-18/89 dated the 24th July 2017 on the above cited subject. As per this Department’s OM No. 38/41/2006-P&PW(A) dated 5 th May 2009, Government servants covered under National Pension System (NPS) on their death, attributable to Government service are provisionally entitled for benefits under CCS(EOP) Rules 1939. 

2. The benefit of family pension under CCS (Pension) Rules and CCS(EOP) Rules has been extended to the employees under NPS, vide OM dated 05.05.2009. On death of an NPS employee, the family is, however not paid the benefit from NPS accumulations. The entitlements of the family on death of an NPS employee, are at par with the employee borne on a pensionable establishment, both under CCS(Pension) Rules and CCS(EOP) Rules. Therefore, in case of death of an NPS employee, the family should be entitled to family pension under EOP Rules at the rate of 60% of the basic pay and not at the rate of 40% of basic pay applicable on death of holder of a non-pensionable post.
