Your question is good one as there is an amendment in the recent pay commission implementation as far as definition of dependent family members is concerned. This is the exact wording given in official CGHS site

"DEFINITION OF FAMILY

In accordance with the initial instructions, the term of Family for the purposes of the Scheme shall consist of the Government servant's wife or husband, as the case may be children and stepchildren and parents who are mainly dependent on and residing with the Government servant concerned. Subsequently in pursuance of the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission, it has been decided that for availing the medical facilities under the scheme, parents, sisters,. widowed sisters, widowed daughters, minor brothers and children will be deemed dependent on the Government employee if they are residing- with him and their income from all sources including pension and pension equivalent of DCRG benefit is less than Rs. 3500 +DA per month."

Please go through the said site for more details
