In this note we present a new sufficient condition which guarantees martingale approximation and central limit theorem $\textit{a la Kipnis - Varadhan}$ to hold for additive functionals of Markov processes. This condition, which we call the \emph{relaxed sector condition $($RSC$)$} generalizes the strong sector condition (SSC) and the graded sector condition (GSC) in the case when the self-adjoint part of the infinitesimal generator acts diagonally in the grading. The main advantage being that the proof of the GSC in this case is more transparent and less computational than in the original versions. We also hope that the RSC may have direct applications where the earlier sector conditions do not apply. So far we do not have convincing examples in this direction.
