(Signature of Teacher)Copy of letter No. F-100/4/X-19(5)-65-66, dated October 12, 1965 from the Director of Education, U.P. Allahabad to this Office and others.Subject. – Payment of gratuity to the dependents of the teachers of aided educational Institutions.I have to say that under the scheme sponsored by the State Government with effect from April 1, 1964 for payment of gratuity to the dependents of teachers of non-Government aided Junior Basic, Senior Basic, Higher Secondary Schools including those managed by Local Bodies and Degree Colleges, the dependents of the teachers of those institutions are to be paid a gratuity equal to six months’ pay as admissible in the relevant approved scale in case of teachers both before retirement provided he has put in not less than three years of continuous service before death. No such pay would, however, be made to the dependents of the teachers after their retirement. In this connection the following procedure is laid down for obtaining and following the case to the Directorate for the sanction of gratuity.1. Within a fortnight of the death of a teacher in the circumstances which give title to the nominee/nominees of the deceased to the payment of gratuity under the rules, the manager of the institution will submit his recommendation in the matter to the District Inspector of Schools in the case of boy’s School including degree Colleges (both Men and Women) and the Regional Inspectress of Girls’ Schools in case of girls Schools along with the service book complete in all respects with all the periods of service duly verified from the School records and the date of death entered in it along with the following papers duly attested by him:

(i) Additional information on the enclosed proforma.

(ii) History of service.

(iii) Attested copy of the certificate having the date of birth.

(iv) Attested copy of the death certificate.

(v) Attested copies of rill such letters (appointment/confirmation etc. as are referred to or should have been referred to in the service book).

(a) In the event of no declaration having been made for this purpose nominating his/her dependents to receive payment on this account before the death of a teacher or in the event of any dispute, the case should be referred to the Directorate for a decision in the matter which shall be binding on all parties and shall be final without any appeal.

(b) You will after necessary examination forward the case with all papers complete and duly countersigned by you to the Directorate in a registered cover (except District Inspector of Schools, Regional Inspectors of Girls’ Schools, Allahabad, who should submit these papers through some responsible person) within a week positively. Before countersigning these papers you should satisfy yourself that the various entries made in the service book and other information submitted to you in this regard, are correct.

(c) You will adopt your own ways for having the information about the death cases of your District/Region immediately and to keep a watchful eye on them so that the required papers are submitted by the management of these schools within the stipulated time and no complaint without the delay in such cases is made to the Directorate. You should personally see that those cases are submitted to the Directorate within three weeks from the death of the teacher. If you find that the required papers would not be submitted by the managements to you within the stipulated time, special measures should please be taken to obtain them without delay. In this connection I am inclined to make it clear to you that it is the declared intention and policy of the department to arrange for the immediate payment of the gratuity to the dependents of the deceased and accordingly, I am to request you to deal with these cases on top priority basis and submit the required papers complete in all respects within the time schedules. It is expected that the managements of these schools would also realise their responsibility and would extend their support by way of submitting the required papers to you within a fortnight from the date of death of the teacher. If, however, you find that the required papers are not being made available to you in spite of special measures taken by you in the matter, within the stipulated time, you should immediately consider the case for suspending the payment of Government grant to the institution and submit your recommendation in this regard for the consideration of the Directorate along with a short note explaining the difficulties, if any, before the management of the institution for not submitting the required papers to you. This should reach the Directorate within three weeks from the date of death of the teacher without fail. Separate correspondence in respect of each case should please be made with the Directorate.

(d) In case of schools run by local bodies, the Deputy Inspector of Schools should please be made responsible for submitting the required papers complete in all respects and duly countersigned by him to you within a fortnight from the date of death of the teacher of these schools. The cases of delay at any stage would be seriously dealt with the Department.

(e) Cases have been reported to this office where no service book of the deceased was maintained by the authorities of the institution. In all such cases, the management of the institution should please be required to submit information on the enclosed proforma which should be collected by them from the acquaintance Roll of the staff. With the help of this statement the History of service of the deceased should be prepared by the management and submitted to you within stipulated time along with other relevant papers referred to above.2. Prior to issue of these instructions individual letters requesting you to submit the required papers in respect of all cases of death reported to the Directorate (name of the deceased given at the end of this letter) were sent to you. No such individual letters would be sent now in such case in future from the Directorate. Immediate steps should please be taken by you to submit these cases to the Directorate within a week positively, fresh cases should, however, please be dealt with according to the instructions given above with particular case of the time schedule.Additional information required in connection with the sanction of gratuity to the employees of educational institutions.Enclosure of D.E.U.P’s letter No. F/10074, dated 12-10-1976.
