Pension Rules for Bed Ridden Patients

Dear Sir,

My father Mr P S Joshi, retired as APO from Bhusaval DRM office in the year 1994.

He is bed ridden from last 4 years due to a minor injury in the right leg which was operated. He has problems with blood supply to brain, due to this he cannot stand, walk and cannot sit at one place for more than 15-20 minutes. Hence he is bed ridden from last 4 years.

Recently one of my retired railway person informed us the Central Railway is giving some additional pension to retired central railway pensioners who is bed ridden.

Requesting you all, to guide me with the exact rule/circular and if there is such facility how to get the same.

Right now myself and my mother is taking care of my father along with one male person from nurses bureau.

Thanking you in advance.
