My elder brother passed away in an accident on 08.09.2018 while returning from office and I submitted all forms for claim of PF, pension and edli. He had completed 6 months and 8 days on the date of death. However the section officer whom the claim document has gone has been stalling me for months now and after nearly a year, he says me that I am not eligible for EDLI as my brother had not completed 12 months of job. I have repeatedly contended infront of him that irrespective of the period he is eligible for EDLI but he is a government employee and does what he pleases. Can anyone please kindly help me and show me the exact law and show the extract so that I can show him, and further tell me what to do in this situation.
This feels like unnecessary harassment. Please provide some help. 14th September 2019
