Additional Quantum of Pension with Advancing Age
10.2.23 The Services have sought a modification in the existing old age pension scheme for JCOs/ ORs whereby the additional quantum of pension should commence at the age of 70 rather than the existing age of 80. The quantum of increase has also been sought to be raised upwards for various categories of old age pensioners.
Analysis and Recommendations
10.2.24 The scheme of additional pension and additional family pension with advancing age was introduced subsequent to recommendations of the VI CPC. The amount of pension for existing pensioners will be revised upwards in accordance with the fitment formula that has been prescribed by the Commission. No further increase in the existing rate of additional pension and additional family pension with advancing age is therefore recommended by the Commission
