Divorced daughter of freedom fighter not entitled to pension: HC

The Punjab and Haryana HC has held that the divorced unemployed daughter of a freedom fighter would not be entitled to family pension after her parents' death. It said “a divorced woman has an alternative means of sustenance for her life by way of claiming maintenance from ex-husband and is, thus, not exclusively dependent upon the amount of pension of her father as a freedom fighter“.
