As per the announcement, family members of employees, who succumbed to Covid-19, would receive their last-drawn salary till the time the employee would have turned 60.

Apart from this, they can also avail medical benefits and housing facilities. Moreover, the company stated that if a frontline employee gets infected while on the job and dies, the company will bear the entire educational expenses of their children till they graduate.

“Tata Steel’s best-in-class social security schemes will help ensure an honourable standard of living for their families, whereby the family will get the last drawn salary till 60 years of age of the deceased employee/nominee,” the Jamshedpur-based company said on Twitter while announcing the schemes.
