Rs. 10 Lakh Compensation if Government Employee Dies During Election Duty

The Tamil Nadu Election Commission’s Chief Commissioner, Praveen Kumar says that the Election Commission has announced a compensation of Rs. 10 lakhs for employees who die while on election duties.

Normally during state elections, more than 3 lakh state and Central Government employees, including teachers, local police personnel, police personnel from the neighboring states, paramilitary forces and private videographers, participate.

If death occurs in poll-related violence or if the employee dies of cardiac arrest while on election duty, his/her family was, until now, given a compensation of Rs. 5 lakhs. This has been increased to Rs. 10 lakhs from 2014 onwards. Under this scheme, personnel who had died on duty during the May elections will be paid a compensation of Rs. 10 lakhs, says Praveen Kumar.


If the death is unfortunately caused due to any violent acts of extremist or unsocial elements like, road mines, bomb blasts, armed attacks, etc., the amount of compensation would be Rs.20 lakhs. In the case of permanent disability, like loss of limb, eye sight, etc., a minimum ex-gratia payment of Rs.5 lacs would be given to the official (which would be doubled in the case of such mishaps being caused by extremist or unsocial elements as aforesaid).
