Son, daughter suffering from disorder eligible beyond age of 25

Unmarried daughters of retired government employees in Rajasthan will be entitled to a share in the family pension even after attaining the age of 25. The Rajasthan Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1996, will be amended to facilitate this decision taken by the State Cabinet.

According to the proposal, a government employee’s son or daughter suffering from any disorder or challenged mentally or physically and not able to earn a livelihood will be eligible for family pension beyond the age of 25 years. The monthly income limit for eligibility in such cases has also been increased from Rs.2,550 to Rs.6,000.

The Cabinet meeting also approved allotment of 150 bighas of land free of cost to the Dargah Committee of the Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti Dargah in Ajmer for construction of a rest house or “Vishram Sthali” for pilgrims. A proposal for grant of a special allowance of Rs.500 to Gram Sevaks with effect from August has been cleared. To improve the prospects of promotions for Gram Sevaks it has been decided that 265 posts of Panchayat Prasar Adhikari would be created.

Government Polytechnic College in Dausa will be renamed after the late Union Minister Rajesh Pilot who had represented Dausa constituency in the Lok Sabha. The meeting decided that the buildings being constructed in the district Collectorate and the Zila Parishad premises for public facilities will be named “Bharat Ratna Rajiv Gandhi Bharat Nirman Seva Kendra”.

In another step, to boost the morale of the Secretariat employees, the Cabinet decided to change the designation of Senior Personal Assistant to “Additional Private Secretary”. Necessary amendments will be carried out in the Rajasthan Secretariat Service Rules, 1954, and the Rajasthan Secretariat Ministerial Service Rules, 1970, for this.

The Cabinet granted special exemption in minimum pass marks in Teacher Eligibility Test to candidates from the Scheduled Tribes belonging to the notified areas. It has been decided to add a new provision in Rule 14(2) of Rajasthan Police Subordinate Service Rules, 1989, to consider cases with a minimum 5 cm inflation of chest during the chest measurement in the recruitment tests along with the provision of deflated 81 cm chest and inflated 86 cm chest measurements. In the case of Sahariya Adivasis of Shahbad and Kishanganj in Baran district, it has been decided that special exemption in physical measurements be allowed in the police constable recruitment.
