If  a Government servant dies while 
in service
, the  Children Education  Allowance  or
 hostel subsidy shall be admissible in 
respect

 of  other 
conditions for its grant provided the

employed in service of the Central Govt.
, State Government, Autonomous Body, PSU, Semi-Government Organization such as Municipality,

 such  time the employee would  have
  actually received the  same, subject to  the condition that other terms and 
conditions are  fulfilled. The  payment
