Subject-Suggestions for review of Staff Benevolent Fund – Regarding.
The undersigned is directed to say that the Central Government being the largest single employer in the country, bears the major responsibility of looking after the welfare of a large number of employees spread all over the country. This Ministry recognizing that welfare of employees is one of prime tasks of personnel management, provides and aids a large network of staff welfare programmes underlining the fact that improvement in the working and living conditions of the employees and their families, leads to efficiency and high morale amongst them. A compendium of instructions giving a brief account of such welfare programmes was brought out by this Ministry in 2001. A need is felt to update/revise the compendium.
The Staff Benevolent Fund is one of such staff welfare programmes. A copy of the extract taken out from the compendium related to this programme is sent herewith with the request that suggestions of your Ministry/Department, if any, for revision/modification of the provisions of the Staff Benevolent Fund may please be furnished for consideration of this Department by 31.10.2014.
