2) The cabinet approved the Department of Revenue proposal for amendment in the Scheme for grant of ex-gratia payment to war widows, war disabled, prisoners of war/missing person in war/operation/Delhi Police personnel/Home Guards etc and families of those who lose their lives in defined uniformed services during the course of duty.
In furtherance of the Cabinet decision of 24/07/2018 on the above mentioned policy, families of such personnel would also be covered in this policy if his permanent address recorded at the time of joining the service is Delhi or is posted in Delhi at the time of action/incident or the family has been residing in Delhi for the last atleast five years.
As regards the proof of residing in Delhi, it shall be looked into by the Group of Ministers (GoM) headed by the Deputy Chief Minister.
The amendment was necessitated following the latest incident of the brutal murder of late Head Constable Narender Kumar of the Border Security Force (BSF) at the India Pakistan International Border.
It was noted that the family of late Narender Kumar has been residing in Delhi since many years though his permanent address is of Haryana.
