Is my Mother(Widow) entitled to receive pension from Mazgaon Dock?






My father was an ex-employee of Mazgaon Dock and was retired as Stores manager in the year Sep-1988 adter a service of nearly 18 years.He passed away in the year 2004 and had never received any kind of pension until then.Recently,I came across one of my friend whose father works for Mazgaon Doc and he did mention that they do have pension benefits.

1)Would my Mother who is 70 + years old be eligible for any pension(My father for soem reason had not received any kind of pension until h ewas alive for some reason).

2)Was the provision for pension sanctioned for Mazgaon Doc employees later than 2004?In that case would my mother be entitled for my father's pension?


Thank You.

What was the reason for your father not getting pension? Widow is entitled for family pension only when the retired &/or deceased employee was drawing pension.


The case is more than 25 years old and the record retention period (of service register) is only 5 years after retirement.
