BHUBANESWAR: The State Government has decided to extend financial benefit in the form of ex gratia in case of death and permanent incapacitation in favour of teaching and non-teaching employees of non-Government aided colleges.

Sources said while `two lakh would be provided for death, `1.5 lakh will be granted for permanent incapacitation. The benefits will be extended to both teaching and non-teaching employees of non-Government aided colleges covered under grant-in-aid orders 2008 and 2009.
The Higher Education Department has framed guidelines to claim the ex gratia. As per the guidelines, in case of death of an employee, the principal of the college concerned will furnish a proposal to Director of Higher Education with death and legal heir certificates. The Director, in turn, would sanction the amount and disburse it in favour of the spouse or one of the legal heirs or among the legal heirs proportionately on basis of the representation from the same.

In case of permanent incapacitation, the Director, after receipt of recommendation from the college principal on the basis of the medical certificate, will refer it to the district medical board concerned through the CDMO for authenticity of the medical certificate. Soon after authentication, the amount will be disbursed in favour of the employee.
Cases of death or permanent disability occurring on or after July 1 will be eligible for the ex gratia benefit.
