    It is not possible to answer your question accurately since it will depend on the relevant rules that are applicable in the case and you have not even specified under which Government, she was working, and also you have not provided details about her husband and/or children.

    Generally speaking, under the Central Government rules, for these purposes, “family” of a female Government servant is considered to be the husband and children of the subscriber, and the widow or widows and children of a deceased son of the subscriber. Further, the relevant rules require that if the female employee has a “family” (as above), then she cannot nominate any person other than from the “family” for her GIS. Moreover, if the female employee has no family (such as before her marriage), then she nominate some other person for her GIS, but such nomination shall become invalid once she gets a “family” (i.e., she gets married) since thereafter she has to nominate one or more persons from the “family” only.

    Now, in your question, you have not specified as to whether the female employee has surviving husband and/or children. If yes, then her nomination in favour of her mother would be invalid.

    So, please get this issue examined in the light of the relevant rules applicable to her (i.e., the concerned State Government rules or Central Government rules). You may make enquiries in her office / department with the concerned staff.
