I have a question and please answer it.

"Family" means wife or husband, children including adopted children, step children and parents living with the government servant.

Parents in the definition of family above will include only such parents whose monthly income does not exceed rupees 5000.

In the above sentence does it mean monthly income of individual parent or monthly income of both the parents in aggregation.

Hi A H Wani,

I'm afraid it's not clear. In other words, it could mean them separately or as an aggregate.

All the best,

Sir please explain when it could mean in aggregate and when it means seperatly

Hi A H Wani,

'in aggregate' means together. In other words, if there are two people, 2,500 each, which is 5,000 together.
