Death Relief Fund

The Death Relief Fund was introduced in the year 1985-86 in order to give relief to the family of a member who dies in harness with a meagre contribution of Re. 1/- by each member per month. The amount of relief which was Rs. 5,000/- in the initial stages has now been raised to Rs. 12,00,000/- to mitigate the financial hardship caused to the bereaved family. At present, the monthly contribution towards the Death Relief Fund by a member is Rs.300/-, out of which Rs.150/- along with interest is refundable at the time of retirement of the member.

As decided in the last Annual General Body meeting (9th September-2017) the monthly contribution toward DRF has been revised to Rs. 450 per month out of which Rs.150/- will be refunded to the member at the time of closure of membership along with interest as decided by the board from time to time .
