Subject: Determination of relevant date from which senior retired AIS officers should be paid additional 20% of basic pension.

Sir/Madam,

Reference is invited to Rule 18(1-A) of AIS (DCRB) Rules, 1958 which provides that in addition to pension admissible in accordance with clause Rule 18(1 )(b) of AIS (DCRB) Rules, 1958, after completion of eighty years of age or above, additional pension shall be payable to the retired member of the service in the following manner:

Age of Pensioner Additional Pension
From 80 years to less than 85 years 20% of basic pension
From 85 years to less than 90 years 30% of basic pension
From 90 years to less than 95 years 40% of basic pension
From 95 years to less than 100 years 50% of basic pension
100 years or more 100% of basic pension

2. In this context, as per the admissible Rules / provisions, additional pension shall be payable from first day of the calendar month in which it falls due and not from the date of completion of 80 years of age. For example, a pensioner born either on 01.08.1942 or on 20.08.1942 shall be eligible for additional pension at the rate of 20% of the basic pension with effect from 01.08.2022.

3. State / UT Governments are requested to ensure that there is no discrepancy in the interpretation of the aforementioned Rule and the retired AIS officers are paid additional pension as per the above provision.

Yours sincerely,
