Family to get Tk 5 lakh if govt official dies while on duty

Staff Correspondent

The family of the government officials, who would die while on duty, will get Tk 5 lakh and the officials who would suffer serious injury would get Tk 2 lakh in compensation from the government exchequer.
Following a proposal of the Election Commission to raise the ceiling of compensation for the government officials if they get killed or hurt while discharging duties, the ministry of public administration has recently finalised a policy in this regard.
The ministry sent the approved policy including a sample application form to the commission and the commission on Monday issued a circular to inform its officials.
The commission issued the circular at a time when the field-level officials sought additional security measures for them expressing concerns over the developments following some incidents of attack on commission officials at places.
The commission is going to hold the January 5 parliamentary polls amidst boycott by the opposition including the Bangladesh Nationalist Party-led alliance.
