Dear Sir,
As per Govt. of India standing instructions, the legal heir has right to get the gratuity and other benefit. No doubt the father is also a legal heir in one of them but wife and children has first priority over it. In this regard, you have to prove that she is legally weded wife of the deceased. The concerned department will consider it.

According to Rule 53 (1)(i) of CCS (Pension) Rules 1972, a Government Servant has a family, the nomination shall not be in favour of any person or persons other than the members of his family. As per Rule 50(6) ibid, father and mother also comes under the definition of familyfor the purpose of Rules 51, 52 and 53. Hence the nomination made by the deceased official in favour of his father is valid even after his marriage unless he revised the nomination. In the instant case the father will get the DCRG and the wife and children have no right to claim it. However, the wife will get family pension.
