As per the existing scheme of the Delhi govenrment, ex- gratia payment is made in cases of defence, paramilitary forces, the Delhi Police, Home Guard, Civil Defence, Delhi Fire Service personnel dying in discharge of bonafide official duty.

Baijal had said Grewal's case does not qualify the parameters.
