    Husband expired, wife became pensioner and daughter was given job. Later pensioner mother was hospitalised for treatment and died. Now, can her employee daughter claim the bill for reimbursement as her mother was a dependent?

    It is absolutely true and correct as for as Government Orders are concerned. But it is unfortunate that, in practice the Employees in Commissionerate of Intermediate Education of Telangana State are not processing the Reimbursement proposals to Aided employees who are drawing pension on par with Government employees, even though there is no such discrimination between the employees in the eyes of Government. The employees are creating such hurdles because their presumptions am afraid that The Telangana Government may earn bad name because of theses employees. I feel that this issue be addressed at the earliest. Where as in Andhra there is no such discrimination as for as reimbursement is concerned.
