as mention by you " security agency which was there earlier in which he worked has changed and a new security agency has come" it doesn't make any difference.Edli scheme is get entitled on the very first day of joining the establishment.and it is generally claim through Form-5 IF.
it is calculated on the basic,means the 30 times on the basic to the nominee use to be paid.
suppose member having 5000/- basic , nominee we get (30*5000)150000/- as an EDLI amount against this insurance scheme.
beside you have stated they have told you that "According to them that your father is not eligible for EPS and EDLI as he was not in service from last 10 months." kindly ask them for the EPF detail or else you can also take from member portal of www.epfindia.com. because i smell something foul when they say you father is not eligible for EPS and EDLI " make sure either they make the contribution in EPf or not.And probably you will have to submit the copy of Muster attendance Record of the company they was working during the demise along with medical certificate of the doctor for proving although the member was not attending the duty but same was on role of the company.
you can call me in case of any problem - 09527355623

Family Pension & EDLI benefits are available only if the PF Member is in continuous employment at the time of death. You have mentioned that your father was taking treatment between July, 2016 to Feb. 2017. What about March & April, 2017? Had his employer given him authorised leave and have you submitted medical reports and sickness certificate to the Company?. What was his nature of employment, whether contractual or regular? If it is contractual and the security agency's contract expired say in March 2017, he is not eligible for any benefit. Moreover, if the contractor has recorded in the monthly PF return that the member has already left services than also he will not get any benefit.
Pls check whether your father was covered under ESIC? if yes, that will help to prove that he was under medical treatment and thus was in continuous employment.
