Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare (DOP&PW) has informed that there is no provision in the Contributory Provident Fund Rules (India), 1962 for grant of monthly pension to the Contributory Provident Fund retirees. However, an ex-gratia is paid on monthly basis to those CPF beneficiaries who retired before 1.1.1986 after 20 years of regular service or died while in service before 1.1.1986. The rates of the monthly ex-gratia have been revised with effect from 4th June, 2013 as under:-

Group - Monthly Ex-gratia (in Rs.)
‘A’ - 3,000/-
‘B’ - 1,000/-
‘C’ - 750/-
‘D’ - 650/-

DOP&PW has informed that they do not have the information of CPF beneficiaries who are getting ex-gratia as on 31.03.2013.
