AOC’s NOTE
Every individual after a life of sweat and toil dreams of a relaxed retired life, with the help of his
1.
retirement/ pensionary benefits. AFRO is committed to help all retiring Airmen/NCs (E) in getting their
Pensionary benefits within a reasonable time. However, Pension is a team game and for timely release
of Pension to the individual, all players (Individual, Unit, AFRO, JCDA (AF) and the payee Bank) have to
play their role. AFRO, JCDA (AF) and the Banks understand the entire ambit of pension; however, a lot
of scope exists for educating the individual and the Units on this matter. This handbook on Pensionary
benefits is an effort in this direction.
2.
This revised handbook has been completely restructured and improved to ensure transparency
and ease of understanding. This handbook not only provides relevant information on Pension but also
provides explanation regarding the various issues and procedures involved in sanction/disbursal of
pensionary benefits. Besides pensionary benefits, this revised handbook also provides comprehensive
information on Ex- Servicemen Contributory Health Scheme and other Post Retiral Assistance provided
by AFRO and Zila Sainik Boards.
3.
This book is only a guide and not an authority for claiming pension or any other benefits.
The information available in this book has been updated, till the printing of this book.

A PIECE OF ADVICE
When an airman is in service, his complete focus is centered on his
profession, his postings, his annual assessments, his promotions, and his
recognition (commendations/ honorary commission etc). However, it is surprising
to know that how little planning and foresight is displayed by an average
airman/NC (E) towards the second innings of his life, which starts after
retirement. This handbook aims to help an airman/NC (E) in understanding the
rules of the game in this second innings of his life, so that he can emerge as a
winner.

CHAPTER- I
INTRODUCTION
A BRIEF ON PENSION
An employee governed by the Pension Scheme gets a recurring monthly payment for life and a
1.
lump sum gratuity at the time of his retirement, both determined with reference to the length of his
service and the last pay drawn by him. For the PBOR who has spent all his active life in the service of
the nation, pension is not only compensation for loyal service rendered in the past, but it also has a
broader significance. Pension is a measure of social economic justice which provides economic
security even in that stage of life when physical and mental prowess are ebbing out corresponding to
the ageing process and therefore, one is required to fall back on savings. The term ‘pension’ has been
judicially defined as a stated allowance or stipend made in consideration of past service. Thus, the
pension payable to a Defence Personnel is earned by rendering long and efficient service and therefore
can be said to be a deferred portion of the compensation for service rendered. In the event of his death,
his spouse gets a monthly payment for life. Other beneficiaries get such payment for limited periods or
for life subject to certain conditions.
2.
A pension has in essence the character of a conditional entitlement and the root of the idea of
pension lies in a long term relationship between the employer and the employee of a service normally
spanning over employees whole working life, followed by the annuity for the rest of his life. Pension is
an objective and a cherished goal one works up to and looks forward to. It is the culmination of the long
journey in one’s service career. Once a man has earned his pension after hard labour of several years,
he can afford to relax and start enjoying the fruit as long as he is gifted to live. Pension is valuable in the
sense that it is secure. The Courts will not allow refusal, reduction, forfeiture of pension unless there
are genuine grounds for doing so and the employees can also seek redress in the Courts of Law,
whenever, they feel that justice has been denied to them. Only misconduct of the gravest nature can
lead to forfeiture of pension once sanctioned. Pension is also secure against attachment, seizure or
sequestration by process of any civil court at the instance of a creditor or in satisfaction of a decree or
order of any civil Court of Law (Pension can however be attached on orders of a criminal court for
maintenance under sec-125 of Cr PC). Amounts owed by the pensioner to Govt, though undisputed
cannot be recovered by deduction from pension except with his express consent. Pension is thus a
sacrosanct and protected possession and is therefore, greatly valued.

AN OVERVIEW OF AFRO
Pension and Welfare Wing of AFRO is directly responsible for all pensionary matters of
4.
Personnel Below Officer Rank (PBOR). However, Pension and Welfare Wing works as a team with
other wings of AFRO. It has to be understood that if everything else (during the service period) has
gone off well, only then the pension settlement will also go through smoothly. However, if there are any
problems with qualifying service, authorized entitlement of leave, promotion dates and correctness of
critical data in the RCSR etc, it will adversely affect the pension.
5.
Since AFRO will be the most important organization in the post retired life of Airmen / NCs (E),
therefore, it is desirable for airmen/NCs (E) proceeding on retirement to have a brief overview of AFRO:
Record Office was formed in 1939 at Ambala. Thereafter it moved to Walton, Lahore in
(a)
1941.
(b)
However in 1942 it moved again and was merged with Base Personnel Office at
Bombay.
(c)
In 1945 it was re named as IAF Record Office.
(d)
In 1947 it was moved to New Delhi.
Personnel Airmen & Civilians at Air HQ.
In the year 1958 it was merged with Dte of
(e)
In Aug 1966 an independent Unit (Called as AFRO) was formed at Subroto Park, New
Delhi and till date this office is operating from Subroto Park.
(f)
The complete spectrum of personnel management of Personnel below Officer Rank
(PBOR) right after recruitment till death and thereafter the release of family pension is handled
by AFRO.
For serving Airmen activities like Postings, Promotions, Placements, Extension of
(g)
Service, Discharge, Grant of Hony Commission, Issue of various medals, detailing for courses
within India and abroad, Maintenance of service records etc. is routinely done at AFRO. In
addition, the Pension and Welfare Wing of AFRO actively looks after the Pension and Welfare
aspects of our PBOR after retirement.
ROLE OF OTHER AGENCIES
Besides internal co-ordination within the AFRO, the Pension and Welfare Wing co-ordinates with
6.
other agencies like JCDA (AF) Subroto Park, PCDA (P) Allahabad, AFGIS, AFCAO, IAFBA etc. After
retirement there could be a requirement for an ex Airman/NC (E) to ask queries on Pension and other
NE benefits. For appropriate response, the query must be addressed to the concerned agency, which
has jurisdiction over the subject matter of query to ensure effective correspondence after retirement.

CHAPTER – II
SERVICE PENSION
INTRODUCTION
1.
Oxford dictionary defines Pension as a regular payment by the government/pension fund. The
terms and conditions for eligibility to Service Pension are different for airmen and NCs (E). Though
pension has a very old history however for every individual who is going out of service, getting his own
pension is his first experience. For the purpose of Pension, AFRO is basically a front end processing
agency for Airmen/NCs (E) however the financial power to issue Pension Payment Order (PPO) for
Defence, vests with the financial watchdogs of the Government i.e. Controller General of Defence
Accounts/ his representatives. For IAF the pension is issued by Joint Controller of Defence Accounts
(JCDA) Air Force, Subroto Park, New Delhi-110010. If AFRO & JCDA are satisfied on the eligibility
conditions of an airman then a PPO will be issued by JCDA (AF). This PPO will be in six copies.
AFRO will dispatch one copy to the individual (With Pension Book), One copy to the Pension Disbursing
office (Bank/ Treasury Office/ Defence Pension Disbursing Office) and one copy is filed in the
individual’s Record copy of sheet roll (RCSR) at AFRO. Fourth & fifth copy of PPO is retained by the
Office of JCDA (AF) and the sixth copy is forwarded to Office of PCDA (P) Allahabad (Principal
Controller of Defence Accounts (Pension)) for record purpose. The Pension Disbursing office (PDO) is a
financial authority in itself and therefore it has the power to satisfy itself on the identity of the pensioner
and the genuinety of the PPO. It is therefore very important that each and every Airman eligible for
Service Pension (SP) understands the salient aspects of the SP and avoids injecting inadvertent
mistakes into his Pension papers and service documents. It must be remembered that any mistake in
pension papers/ service documents will invariably results in audit objection and consequent delay in the
release of Service Pension.
ELIGIBILITY TO EARN SERVICE PENSION
2.
The terms and conditions for eligibility to Service Pension are different for airmen and NCs(E).
Everyone who joins as an airmen & NCs (E) in IAF can become eligible for Service Pension if he meets
the following service conditions as laid down in Para 121 of Pension Regulation 1961(Part – I) for
airmen and in regulation 145 of pension regulations for Army (part-I) {for NCs(E)}:
(a)
Eligibility for Airmen
:
A minimum of 15 years of qualifying service.
(b)
Eligibility for NCs (E)
:
A minimum of 20 years of qualifying service.
ADDITIONAL PENSION ON ATTAINING THE AGE OF 80 YEARS
3.
An additional pension/family pension to the pensioners has been introduced with effect from
01.01.2006 vide, the Circular No. 397 & the GOI MOD Letter dated 18 Nov 08 & 11 Nov 08
respectively. The additional quantum of pension/family pension, on attaining the age of 80 years and
above, would be admissible from the 1st day of the month in which his/her date of birth falls. The
quantum of additional pension/ family pension available shall be as follows: Age of pensioner/ family pensioner
Additional quantum of pension
From 80 years to less than 85 years
From 85 years to less than 90 years
From 90 years to less than 95 years
From 95 years to less than 100 years
100 years or more
20% of revised basic pension/ family pension
30% of revised basic pension/ family pension
40% of revised basic pension/ family pension
50% of revised basic pension/ family pension
100% of revised basic pension/ family pension
The amount of additional pension as per entitlement will be paid by the PDA automatically,
where the date of birth of the pensioner/family pensioner is available in the PPO/Descriptive Roll
and shown separately in the pension payment scroll/ pension payment voucher/schedule/journal.
7
In cases where the date of birth of the pensioner/ family pensioner is not available in the PPO/
PDA/Bank records, the same shall be forwarded by the pensioner to the Records Office along with
attested photocopy of discharge book and proof of the date of birth of surviving spouse. The
authenticity of the age declared by the pensioner/ family pensioner shall be verified by the Records
Office and forwarded to the Pension Sanctioning Authority (PSA) for notification of date of birth through
a Corr PPO. A format of application for additional pension on attaining 80 years of age and above is
attached as Appendix ‘A’ to this book, which is to be submitted to this Office by the pensioner.
ROLE OF UNIT IN ENSURING THE CORRECTNESS OF PENSION PAPERS
4.
As a first agency responsible for initiating and verifying the pension claim, the role of the
parent unit becomes important. The activity chart for the unit is attached as Appendix ‘E’ to this
book. The following ambiguities / irregularities in finalization of the cases can be checked at unit level:
(a)
At times the Airmen / NCs (E) are not briefed clearly about the difference between
qualifying service and total service for eligibility to pension. This understanding is crucial for
exercising the option of unwillingness for further extension of service.
(b)
Airmen / NCs (E) are not routed for final clearance in time. The importance of final
clearance at AFRO for clearing visible/invisible Pension related complications of the individual is
sometimes not understood at unit level.
(c)
Delay by unit in obtaining CFA sanction for regularization of abnormal leave, will delay
the release of Pension.
(d)
Non qualifying periods as given below are not mentioned correctly in column no-17(a):
(i)
(ii)
(iii)
(iv)
(e)
AWL (If punished)
Detention by Court Martial
Period under civil custody
Extra ordinary leave due to AWL
Incorrect promulgation of entries in NE POR and late despatch of the same by the unit.
(f)
At times wrong issue of service details in discharge certificate with special reference to
airmen proceeding on discharge on own request/SNLR/Medically invalidated out etc causes
subsequent complications in their Pension.
(g)
Typed / handwritten signature block of Adjutant (Commissioned Officer) / CO / Stn Cdr /
AOC is not to be made but Rubber Stamp is to be affixed at all places in pension papers.
5.
The units are required to forward the following documents to O i/c RW (Co-ord) AFRO within
three weeks of receipt of discharge order: (a)
Updated CTC of unit copy of Sheet Roll (UCSR) duly countersigned by Adjt/CO.
(b)
Appx ‘B’ to AFO 40/89 (Application cum sanction for encashment of leave in triplicate)
(c)
Requisite information as called for vide Appendix ‘A’ to AFRO letter No RO/2901/1/Pen
Wel (Adm) dated 05 Feb 99 is appended as Appendix- ‘F’ to this booklet.
(d)
The Adjutant is to review the UCSR for accuracy and completeness in all respect and
bring it upto date. (Refer Appx ‘A’ Sl No. 01 to AFO 133/98 and para 9 of AFO 40/89).
Note: - Leave availed and leave encashed vide a, b & c should tally.
8
6.
The units are required to despatch certain documents to O i/c Pen & Wel Wing, AFRO eleven
months before the date of discharge. Specimen of these documents is attached in this booklet as
Appendix-‘G’. The list of these documents is as follows:

7.
On receipt of pension claim/papers, AFRO processes the case for award of pension and
maintains close liaison with Pension Sanctioning Authority (Audit) and other agencies concerned with
the pensionary aspects. AFRO monitors the movements of documents through its Liaison cell and
clears the audit objections expeditiously so that Pension Payment Order (PPO) is issued by PSA within
the specified time limit. The combined effort (Parent unit, individual, AFRO, AFCAO and JCDA) finally
culminates in the issue of Pension Payment Order (PPO).
8.
Certain important documents/papers must be preserved by a Service Pensioner.

POINTS TO BE CHECKED IN SERVICE DOCUMENTS, DURING ANNUAL PERUSAL/FINAL
CLEARANCE AT AFRO
9.
Every Airman is required to check his documents annually. During this annual perusal he must
look at the correctness of following details:
(a)
Correctness of Name/ Initials/date of birth for self, wife and children.
(b)
Date of enrolment should be correct.
9
(c)
Correct record of all movements on posting and attachment.
(d)
Record of Additional Pay to which you are entitled such as GCB, PJI, FPA, officiating
allowances, Gratuity and Annuity for awards.
(e)
Correctness of entries pertaining to various reclassifications, promotions including
restoration of former rank during service career and their effective dates.
(f)
Record of Attestation in the IAF.
(g)
Record of various examinations, courses and tests passed.
(h)
Correctness/updation of Educational qualifications.
(j)
Record of admissions/Discharges to and from SSQs/Hospitals.
(k)
Correct record of AWL (Commencement/Cessation) in Section II and disposal thereof in
Section IV or VI, if any.
(l)
Correct particulars of Next-of-Kin, names of heir to estate and family Pension.
(m)
Correctness of all the leave entries recorded in the documents and accumulation of leave
for encashment.
(n)
Correct Permanent home address.
(o)
Noticing and rectifying any other anomaly.
(p)
Any period spent in civil custody must be regularized to avoid the problems which may
arise during finalization of pensionary benefits.
COMMON ERRORS IN FILLING UP PENSION CLAIM FORMS
10.
The following common errors which can result in delay /subsequent problems in grant of
Revision of Pension/ Family Pension should be avoided by all airmen while filling up their Pension
papers:
(a)
date.
Submission of incomplete pension papers/ non-submission of pension papers by due
(b)
Non submission of the joint photographs (husband & wife) of the individual by the unit/
individual along with pension papers.
(c)
Incorrect records of leave accumulation, non-adherence to approved copy of Appendix
‘B’ to AFO 40/89.
(d)
Incorrect reflection of Non - Qualifying Period of service and delay in obtaining CFA
sanction for regularization of leave related abnormalities. These results in audit objection and
delay in release of pension
(e)
Incorrect promulgation of various entries in NE POR and also late despatch of the same
to AFRO/AFCAO.
(f)
Opening of Pension bank account (as per name in discharge order in an authorized
Pension Disbursing Bank), is a must for service pension. However, withdrawal of pension from
joint account is permitted.
10
(g)
Pension account is not opened in the authorized bank/link branch as recommended by
AFRO through a handbook containing state wise address of banks authorized for pension
disbursement. This handbook has been issued to all units of IAF. Opening of Pension account
in a bank which is not authorized to disburse pension will result in dishonoring of PPO at the time
of first pension collection.
(h)
As far as possible, pension account number once submitted should not be amended later
on. If it is amended later on, then Pension can get delayed.
(j)
While filling up pension papers, individuals are writing different addresses in different
forms i.e. (IAF (P) 61, Nomination, Commutation form and IAF (P) 28. At times, the permanent
home address is mentioned in column No 7 of IAFF (P) 61. This address should be the same
where the individual wants to receive his PPO. Correct information on address will rule out any
possibility of non-receipt of PPO/Pension Book by the individual.
(k)
Incomplete bank details are given in pension papers i.e. individual not mentioning Bank
name and branch clearly. At times individuals are mentioning different branch names in pension
papers. Full details of PDO (Bank name, branch, Distt & State) are not mentioned. If a new
district/ state is formed, the individual should also mention old district/state in his PDO details.
Pensioners desiring to get their pension credited to a joint account are required to submit an
application to the branch bank, from where they wish to draw pension. The pensioner’s spouse
in token of having accepted the terms and conditions laid down in GOI, Min of Finance Office
Memorandum No, would also sign this. CPAO/Tech/Amendments/Sch.Book/2005-06/69 dated
09 Jun 2005. (Format of application is given at Annexure ‘C’)
(l)
Joint photograph should be attested in front and not at the back. Service Number and
Date of Discharge should be clearly written at the back of the photograph. Joint photographs
(self and wife only) should be affixed in the place for details of family. However in most cases
individual submit joint photograph with children included, which is not correct. Only passport size
and latest photograph should be submitted, Photograph should be developed from the negative
and should not be a photocopy/Scanned photograph.
(m)
Individuals are submitting extracts/amended medical certificate instead of original
medical certificate with pension papers. Since medical certificate is a must for calculation of
commutation for all airmen/NCs(E), therefore original medical certificate is a mandatory audit
requirement. Extract/ amended medical certificate will get rejected in audit.
Normally, page-6 of Form IAFF(P)-28A (Revised) does not contain thumb impression,
(n)
whereas the same is required and has been clearly mentioned in page-3 of Form IAFF(P)-28A
(Revised).
(p)
Overwriting/using of whitener and illegible writing in the pension papers increases their
vulnerability to Audit objections and consequent delay in pension
(q)
Pension papers should not be submitted in mutilated forms or in a bad condition. Such
pension claims are liable to rejection by AUDIT.
(r)
Airman who are Bachelors are submitting joint photographs along with their parents in
place of own single photograph. Only single photograph is required.
(s)
Unit must ensure that all the pension papers must be signed in ink and not with carbon.
Only commissioned officer’s signatures (as Adjutant) in pension papers is valid in Audit.
(t)
Unit must ensure that individuals discharged on compassionate grounds at own request,
must give an undertaking along with their pension claim that they will not claim their NE benefits
for one year from their DOD, because that is the normal processing time required to release
Pension.
11
(u)
At times the spouse does not sign the pension papers for joint notification of pension.
This can cause delay in release of pension. In case of any serious marital discord/divorce
proceedings etc where the wife does not cooperate and refuses to sign pension papers /pose for
joint photograph, then the individual can submit a certificate to this effect countersigned by his
commanding officer. Thereafter his Pension will be processed without his wife’s name. However,
it must be understood that in such a case, if he expires before legal divorce from court of law, his
wife will still get family pension after fresh audit of her case.
(v)
In many cases, name of self as per discharge order and names of wife and children as
per service records are not mentioned in pension papers. Also in some cases details of date of
birth of wife is not mentioned. Mentioning of correct Date of Birth of wife is a mandatory
requirement.

Cutting / overwriting / amendments in medical certificate (for commutation) is not accepted in
audit. Date of discharge must be shown on the day on which the individual served last (A/N) and
not SOS date (F/N).

PCDA (P), Allahabad. It should be addressed to the Addl CDA (Air Force), New Delhi – 10 only.
ROLE OF AFRO, AFCAO, JCDA (AF) AND THE TIME FRAME OF ACTIVITIES
The Pension and welfare Wing (P&W Wing) of AFRO is basically responsible for all pensionary
11.
matters. The P&W Wing primarily acts as a processing agency, which receives the pension claims and
forwards it to JCDA at D minus 8 (discharge date minus eight) months along with the individuals Record
Copy of Sheet Roll (RCSR), through AFCAO (for financial details). The pension claim forms are
forwarded from P&W Wing along with LPC – DS (last pay certificate/data sheet). Before forwarding of
updated RCSR to P&W Wing, the Recording Wing (RW) gets every RCSR scrutinized by the concerned
airman, for any possible error, during his final clearance visit at AFRO.
12.
After audit at JCDA, the PPO is issued by JCDA (normally at D minus 6-8 weeks) and AFRO
dispatches the same to the individual and the payee bank. For airman who is superannuating, the
individual copy of PPO is dispatched to the CO/AOC of parent unit for handing over to the retiring
airman on the last day of his service. Similarly for superannuating airmen, the bank copy of PPO is
dispatched at least one month in advance. For airmen who are proceeding on discharge after expiry of
regular engagement, the PPO is dispatched from AFRO only after receipt of a signal from the parent
unit that the airman has actually become non-effective. This extra precaution is due to the fact that
some airmen eventually become eligible for extension and continue in service. The advance dispatch of
PPO in such situations can lead to financial frauds at banks etc. For airman who proceeds on discharge
at own request, the normal advance processing time of 9 months after receipt of pension papers is not
available. Therefore such airmen are likely to get their pension at discharge date plus 10-12 months
(9-months after receipt of pension paper at AFRO). To reduce avoidable correspondence, it is
mandatory for an airmen going out of service at own request, to submit a certificate that he is willing to
accept 12 months delay in pension and that he will not represent on this count.
13.
After payment of service pension the RCSR of an airman is forwarded to Disability Pension
Section for issue of PPO and endorsement (in case of accepted cases only) and later to Recording
Wing for updating with Non Effective POR received from the parent unit. Thereafter, the RCSR moves
to AFCAO for payment of Leave Encashment (LE) and IRLA balance. Leave Encashment being a large
12
amount, is more attractive to the pensioner that is why it is given immediate priority after issue of PPO.
Payment of LE and IRLA balance by AFCAO normally takes D+4-6 months. Rank revision (normal
promotion /HFO, HFL) is undertaken after the receipt of RCSR from AFCAO (after payment of leave
encashment at D+4-6 Months). The processing/audit time for rank revision is 4-6 months. Therefore the
corrigendum PPO for rank revision can only be issued at D +8-10 months. However, in case of normal
promotion (D+7Months and more), if the promotion POR (acting unpaid and paid both) reaches AFRO
up to D minus 5 months also, then it is possible to give higher rank Pension by D (discharge date).in
such cases there will be no requirement for revision after discharge.
COMMUTATION OF PENSION
14.
Following are the salient aspects of the Commutation of pension: (a)
Personnel can commute a portion of their service pension not exceeding 50% of their
pension. Relief with pension is not commutable.
(b)
Pension may be commuted at any time after retirement/ release/ Invalidment. It can
also be commuted more than once provided the overall commuted pension is within the
maximum limits of 50%.
(c)
Individuals who apply for commutation of pension within one year of date of discharge
are exempted from civil medical examination and the medical certificate issued at the time of
release medical examination is accepted by the Pension Sanctioning Authority.
(d)
Age of pensioner for commutation purpose is taken as the age he will attain on the next
birthday following the date on which the commutation becomes absulute. Commutation
table is attached as Appendix-‘B’.
The individual is paid residual pension after the commutation. However, he is
Note 1:
entitled for DR on full Basic Pension (including the commuted amount).
Note 2:
Commuted portion of pension will be restored by Pension Disbursing Office (PDO) on
completion of 15 years from the date of actual commuted value of pension paid/deduction of commuted
portion of pension. PDOs are to restore the commuted portion of pension automatically in terms of
PCDA(P) circular No 28/GI/C/4/Vol-IX/Tech dated 13 Jun 2002. However, it is prudent on the part of
the pensioner to remind his PDO in writing to restore the commuted value of pension. A format of
application for restoration of commuted portion of pension after 15 years is attached as Appendix-‘C’.
DEATH CUM RETIREMENT GRATUITY (DCRG)
15.
Airmen who are discharged from the service and who earn a pension are entitled to DCRG while
those who do not earn pension get service gratuity and DCRG, both. The rate of DCRG is half months
emoluments, for each completed year of service, subject to a maximum of 16.5 months emoluments.
DCRG limit is Rs. 10 lakhs as per Govt of India, MOD letter No. 17(4)/2008(2)/D (Pen/Policy) dated
12 Nov 2008. The formulae for calculating Service Pension, DCRG and Commutation are given as
Appendix-‘D’.
NON-QUALIFYING PERIOD FOR COUNTING OF SERVICE FOR THE PURPOSE OF PENSION.
16.
The following periods do not qualify towards counting of pensionable service as laid down in
para 111 of Pension Regulation 1961 (Part – I): (a)
Period of absence without leave.
(b)
Period under civil custody.
(c)
Detention period awarded by court-martial.
(d)
Period of absence regularized as EOL.

PENSION DISBURSING AUTHORITIES
18.
Pension can be paid through any of the following pension disbursing offices:
(a)
Defence Pension Disbursing Office (DPDO)
(b)
Treasury Office (TO)
(c)
Post Master (PM)
(d)
Public Sector Banks (PSBs)
(e)
Private Sector Banks such as ICICI, IDBI, HDFC and Axis Bank Ltd.
Note: The individual in person must collect the first pension along with commuted value of pension and DCRG.
PAYMENT OF PENSION THROUGH JOINT ACCOUNTS
GOI, MOD, Deptt of Expenditure, Central Pension Accounting Office vide their office
19.
memorandum PAO/Tech/Amendments/Sch. Book/2005-06/69 dated 09 Jun 2005 has permitted
crediting of pension into joint account operated by Pensioner with his/her spouse in whose favour an
authorization for family pension exists in the Pension Payment Order (PPO). The joint account of the
pensioner with the spouse will be operated by ‘Former or Survivor’ basis subject to certain conditions (a)
Once pension has been credited to a Pensioner’s joint bank account, the liability of the
Govt/Bank ceases. No further liability arises even if the spouse wrongly draws the amount.
(b)
As pension is payable only during the life of a Pensioner, his/her death shall be intimated
to the bank at the earliest and in any case within one month of demise so that the bank does not
continue crediting monthly pension to the joint account with the spouse after the death of the
Pensioner. If however, any amount has been wrongly credited to the joint account, it shall be
recoverable from the joint account and/or any of the account held by the pensioner/spouse either
individually or jointly. The legal heirs, successors, executors etc. shall also be liable to refund
any amount, which has been wrongly credited to the joint account.
PROCEDURE OF SUBMISSION OF ALIVE CERTIFICATE
20.
Every year in the month of November, pensioners are required to submit “Alive Certificate’
(a certificate to the effect that the pensioner is alive) duly signed by a Gazetted Officer to his PDO. For
those proceeded abroad, their alive certificate will be signed by Indian Embassies abroad. The pension,
if not drawn for three years, becomes time barred and requires sanction of the competent authority.
In cases, where pension is not drawn within one year, the pensioner has to approach his PDA
with explanation for delay, non re-employment and non-conviction certicates. PDAs have the powers to
make payment of arrears upto 3 years. O/o PCDA (P), Allahabad can sanction arrears claims beyond
3 years. In this case the matter will be reported to the O/o PCDA (P), Allahabad by the PDA alongwith
the following documents:
14
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
(e)
(f)
(g)
(h)
(j)
(k)
(l)
Form ‘A’ (IAF (CDA) 651) duly completed in all respect.
Copy of PPO.
Copy of Pension certficate showing the last date of payment.
Calculation sheet in duplicate duly signed by PDA.
Copy of IAFF (P) 28’A’ (Descriptive Roll)
Non-conviction certificate issued by civil (Local Police) authority.
Reasons for not claiming pension for such a long time.
Reasons for non-payment of pension by the PDA.
A certificate to the effect that arrears are still due and not paid earlier.
Re-employment / Non employment certificate.
Alive certificate.
CHANGE OF PENSION DISBURSING OFFICE
21.
Change of PDO involves transfer of vital pension papers from one PDO to another or from one
PDO to another PDO. AFRO has no direct role in this change. This is the matter between the two
PDOs who are involved in the transfer. For the purpose of transfer a simple application to the PDO
should be adequate. However based on our experience at AFRO we would like to advise that change
of PDO should be a well considered decision because at times the pension papers are despatched by
the old PDO but are not received by the new PDO. This results in discontinuation of pension for 6-8
months before the situation can be resolved and the pension can be re-started through a fresh PPO.
PROCEDURE FOR DRAWING PENSION FOR THOSE RESIDING ABROAD
22.
For airmen residing abroad, a Non Resident Indian account can be opened in any branch of a
nationalized bank. The bank thereafter collects pension, if given power of attorney on pensioner’s
behalf. With power of attorney, the bank normally collects individual’s pension once a year only.
Should there be any query on this matter, OIC Audit / PSB Cell, O/o PCDA (P), Allahabad can be
approached. Based on our experience we would like to caution here that any casual attitude in handling
pension matters while residing abroad can lead to stoppage of pension. Once pension is stopped it is a
very cumbersome and time-consuming process to re-start it.
OCCASIONS WHEN PENSION CAN BE STOPPED
Though pension is the right of a Govt. employee; it can be stopped on following occasions as
23.
laid down in para 108 of Pension Regulation 1961(Part – I): (a)
Grant of pension is subject to future good conduct: Future good conduct shall be an
implied condition of every grant of a pension or allowances as per Para 4 of Pension Regulation
for the Air Force 1961 (Pt-I).
(b)
Pensioners convicted of serious crime or guilty of grave mis-conduct The pension
of a pensioner, who is convicted of a serious crime by a Court of Law or is guilty of grave
misconduct, shall be liable to be withheld in whole or in part as per para 108 of Pension
Regulation for the Air Force 1961 (Part-I). It is advisable for a pensioner to obtain quick bail /
anticipatory bail if he is arrested / likely to be arrested and thereafter defend his case in the Court
of Law.
(c)
In case the pension is not drawn for more than five years; pensioners name is likely to be
struck-off from pension establishment.
(d)
Pension is liable to be forfeited if a pensioner is found guilty of grave, misconduct of a
Political or other nature under the provisions of Pension Regulations for the Air Force 1961.
(e)
If a pensioner has changed his / her Nationality and has become a citizen of a foreign
state, then his/her pension is required to be immediately stopped by his Pension Disbursing
Office (PDO). Thereafter, the pensioner is required to apply to PCDA (P), Allahabad through his
15
PDO alongwith copy of new nationality certificate for restoration his pension. PCDA (P),
Allahabad will take appropriate decision on this matter based on the merits of each case.
PROCEDURE FOR CONDUCTING OF BELATED RME/RMB
24.
All ranks of the armed forces are to be medically examined by a duly authorized medical board /
medical officer prior to their release / retirement / discharge / dismissal. In case the Release Medical
Examination is held before retirement / discharge and approved by competent authority after actual date
of retirement / discharge or RMB is not held before retirement / discharge, due to various personal or
administrative reasons, the authority to regularize such delay is GOI MoD letter No. 10/(1)/87/D/Pen-C
dated 13 Nov 1987 (as amended) which is as under: -
(a)
Regularization of cases where release medical examination is held before
retirement / discharge and approved by competent authority after actual date of
retirement / discharge.
Type of Cases
PBOR
(All medical categories)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q.1. I have proceeded on discharge two months back however I have got my copy of PPO, the
bank has not received its copy of PPO therefore my pension is held up. Please do something.
ANS All PPOs are dispatched through Registered post therefore the chances of transit loss are very
less. As per the existing procedure, the PPOs are despatched through link bank, from where the PPO
is redirected to payee branch after making necessary records. The despatch of the PPO from the link
bank to the payee branch is a weak link and a lot of delay can take place, if the link bank is not giving it
due priority. The pensioners must resolve the issue with this link bank, to payee branch transfer through
representation/liaison with the bank. If after all efforts the bank states that they haven’t received the
PPO, then the bank will be required to send a ‘Loss Certificate’ to AFRO. Based on this loss certificate
AFRO will initiate necessary action for issue of duplicate PPO by JCDA. It must be remembered that a
loss certificate is a precaution against double payment of pension/ fraud. Therefore without loss
certificate, duplicate PPO will not be issued by the financial watchdogs i.e. Office of JCDA (AF).
16
Q.2.
How many period of deficiency in service can be condoned by the AOC, AFRO?
ANS Deficiency in service, for eligibility to service pension or gratuity in lieu may be condoned by the
AOC, AFRO up to six months in each case. However AIR HQ can condone deficiency in service up to
12 months. This condonation, however, cannot be given in following cases:
(a)
An individual who is discharged at his own request
(b)
An individual who is eligible for special pension or gratuity
(c)
An individual who is invalided out of service with less than 15 years of
service.
Q.3.
Can a pensioner open his pension account in any bank near to his hometown?
ANS No, a pensioner has to open his Pension account in an authorized bank as listed in PDA address
book (or any other branch under the authorized link bank) already supplied to all the Air force units by
AFRO. This aspect is also briefed at the time of Final Clearance at this office.
Q.4. My name is correct as per my pay slip, then how can it be wrong as per service
documents?
ANS The master/ legal/Audit document for correctness of name is the enrolment form (P-5) kept with
RCSR. Every other source of entry for name has to match P-5.
Q.5.
In which cases the Endorsement of Family Pension is required, please brief?
ANS
Endorsement of Family Pension is required in the under mentioned cases:
(a)
If an airman is discharged prior to 01 Jan 1986 and his family name is not endorsed in his
PPO.
(b)
If an airman has married after post 1986 discharge
(c)
If an airman has legally divorced his first wife and re-married after discharge from the
service.
(d)
If first wife of an airman has died and the airman has re-married after discharge from
service.
THINK IT OVER
IGNORANCE OF TRUTH IS THE CAUSE OF ALL MISERIES.

CHAPTER – III
DISABILITY PENSION
INTRODUCTION
1.
When an airman or NCs (E) is recruited in the Indian Air Force (IAF), he is medically examined
and allowed to join IAF only after he is found to be 100% medically fit (Cat ‘A4G1’). During the course
of his service with the IAF an individual can sustain an injury or pick up a disease thereby reducing him
to a low medical category. Depending upon the individual facts of the case, an injury or a disease may
or may not be attributable to or aggravated by military service. In injury cases, the Injury Report/Court of
Inquiry (COI) & the Medical Board (MB) will consider all aspects and report its findings on the
attributability / aggravation aspect. Generally the findings of the COI / medical board are binding on the
pension sanctioning authority. Similarly, a disease can be either attributable to or aggravated by the
military service or can be purely constitutional/ genetic in nature or can be due to ageing factor and may
have nothing to do with military service. The decision as to whether the disease is attributable to or
aggravated by the military service or is constitutional / genetic in nature will be taken only by the
competent medical authority i.e. Release Medical Board (RMB) or Invalid Medical Board (IMB).
ELIGIBILITY
2.
As per para 153 of Pension Regulations for IAF, 1961 (Part-I), the primary conditions for the
grant of disability pension are as follow:“Unless otherwise specifically provided, a disability pension may be granted to an individual who
is invalided / discharged from service on account of a disability which is attributable to or aggravated by
Air Force service and is assessed at 20% or over.”
In other words, disability pension is granted to those who fulfill the following 02 criteria
simultaneously:(a)
Disability must be either attributable to or aggravated by service.
(b)
Degree of disablement should be assessed at 20% or more.
Note 1: The above (b) criteria is not applicable to post – 96 Medically Boarded Out (MBO) retirees. In
such cases, an individual who is invalided out from service solely on medical grounds and
percentage of disablement is even 1% is also eligible for disability pension. Authy : Para 7.2 of
MOD letter No. 1(2)/97/D(Pen-C) dtd 31 Jan 2001.
Note 2: An airman or NC(E) who was discharged at own request or on administrative ground after
earning four or more red ink entries is not eligible for disability pension even if he fulfills both the
criteria stated above. Authy : Para 2 (c) of Notes of DPP&R letter No. Air HQ/24229/SOP/PP&R
3(i)/CL/40/06 dtd 31 Oct 06.
INVALID PENSION
3.
Whenever an individual is invalided out from service under the following clauses on completion
of minimum 10 years of qualifying service and his disability pension claim is rejected then he is eligible
for Invalid Pension. The minimum rate of Invalid Pension is Rs. 3500/- pm + DA. wef 01 Jan 2006 as
per recommendation of VIth CPC.
(a)
On having been found medically unfit for further service in IAF.
(b)
Being medically unfit for present trade and unwilling to remuster to other trade.
18
DISABILITY PENSION
4.
Disability pension normally has two elements i.e. Disability Element and Service Element. An
individual (Post – 96) who is invalided out from service (before completion of pensionable service i.e.
Airman – 15 years and NC(E) – 20 years under clause 3 (a) & (b) above and his disability pension
claim is accepted, becomes eligible for both elements. However, if an individual who is discharged from
service under clauses mentioned below and his disability pension claim is accepted, is eligible for
disability element of disability pension only as service pension in such cases is termed as service
element.

In Discharged cases: The rank held by an individual on the date on which he sustained injury or
picked up the disease for which he becomes eligible for disability pension. If any individual has
more than one disability and all are attributable to or aggravated by service then the rank held by

10.
but less than ten years of service and whose disability pension claim is rejected, are entitled for
Invalid Gratuity. In addition those who are invalided out with five years of service or more are entitled
for Death Cum Retirement Gratuity (DCRG) irrespective of fact as to whether the disability is accepted
or rejected.
IMPORTANCE OF RELEASE MEDICAL BOARD (RMB), INVALID MEDICAL BOARD (IMB) AND RE
ASSESSMENT MEDICAL BOARD (RAMB) IN DECIDING DISABILITY PENSION
Release Medical Board (RMB) is carried out for the airmen / NCs (E) who are proceeding on
11.
normal discharge or superannuation with low medical category or on being medically unfit for
present trade and unwilling to remuster to other trade. Invalid medical board (IMB) is carried out for
those airmen/ NCs(E) whose retention in the IAF is not possible due to the unacceptable adverse
effect of their disease/injury on discharge of their duties. RAMB is carried out to re-assess the
percentage of disability in respect of those individuals who are out of service through RMB or IMB and
are in receipt of a disability element for a specific period. Normally there will be only one RAMB for an
individual and there after as per the medical opinion, DP will be decided for the lifetime.
20
12.
It has to be understood by the Ex-Airmen/NCs (E) that the opinion of the medical board is most
important and by and large other agencies are not in a position to interfere with the opinion of the
medical board. The Ex-Airmen/NCs (E) have to appreciate that the eligibility to Disability Pension is
directly linked with the opinion of the medical board. Therefore, the medical opinion (as per existing
guidelines to Medical Officers) should be respected and accepted gracefully by all. All LMC/MBO
personnel are advised to clarify about their eligibility for disability pension from Medical Boards/Officers
at station/unit itself. Individuals are also advised to check all the copies of their IMB/RMB, whether
all the required columns are filled and nowhere whitener is applied before signing on all the
pages of IMB/RMB.
ROLE OF AFRO, JCDA (AF), AIR HQ AND MOD IN DISABILITY PENSION
In pursuance of the new policy on adjudication of disability pension claims as mentioned in MoD
13.
letter No. 1(2)/2002/D(Pen-C) dated 01 Sep 05, major changes have been incorporated in processing
of disability pension claims. Now disability pension claims and appeals are processed as under: (a)
Role of Medical Advisor at AFRO. The Release Medical Board/Invaliding Medical
Board proceedings, duly completed and approved from Command HQs are received by Medical
Advisor at the AFRO. Med Advisor scrutinizes the RMB/IMB proceedings and submits to AOC,
AFRO for approval/adjudication.
After approval/adjudication of claim, he dispatches two
copies of IMB/RMB along with approval/adjudication letter to O i/c Pen & Wel Wg (DP).
(b)
Role of P&WW (DP) at AFRO in RMB cases.
(i)
Rejected cases : In a rejected case, Pen & Wel Wg (DP) makes necessary
endorsement in the Record Copy of Sheet Roll and communicates to the concerned
airman about rejection of his disability pension claim alongwith an original copy of RMB.
Communication is sent to the individual’s last unit, if not retired/discharged. In case the
individual is already discharged, the same is forwarded to his home address. In the
rejection letter, the Individual is advised to prefer an appeal, if he so desires, within 06
months from the date of issue of the rejection letter.
(ii)
Accepted cases : In an accepted case, after endorsement in RCSR, one copy of
RMB is sent to individual. Further, for issuance of PPO of disability pension, P&WW
(DP) forwards RCSR alongwith the adjudication letter, RMB/IMB copy, Injury Report*,
Attributability Certificate* & copy of COI*, if held, to JCDA (AF). It is noted that PPO for
disability is issued after the PPO for service pension is made. This obviates the
requirement of filling separate pension papers for disability as well as preparation of LPCData sheet. On receipt of PPO, P&WW (DP) despatches it to the individual’s PDO under
intimation to him.
(*in injury cases only)
(c)
Role of P&WW (DP) at AFRO in IMB cases. On receipt of IMB proceedings from
Medical Adviser, firstly, the case is taken up for the service pension/ invalid pension, if he is
eligible. Further steps are taken to process the case as per RMB cases given in Para (b) above.
(d)
Role of JCDA(AF), Subroto Park, New Delhi.
CDA is the Pension Sanctioning
Authority. After thorough check of IMB/RMB, Addl CDA (AF) issues PPO for Disability Pension
and endorses the same in the RCSR. RCSR is then sent back to the Disability Pension Section
along with the PPO. PPOs are despatched to the individual’s Pension Disbursing Office (PDO)
under intimation to him by Registered Post. A photocopy of PPO is also dispatched to individual.
(e)
Provision for Appeal against Rejection of DP.
In order to abide by the principles of
natural justice, there is a provision for two appeals against the rejection of disability pension
claim. An individual is required to apply on a plain paper (in duplicate) against the rejection of
Disability Pension. He is to mention the reasons as to how he feels that his disability is
attributable to or aggravated by service. First appeal is to be addressed to AFRO and the
Second appeal is to be sent to DPA (Air HQ) directly. The first appeal is considered by the
Appellate Committee on First Appeals (ACFA) at Air HQ and the second appeal by the Defence
21
Minister’s Appellate Committee (DMAC) at MOD. The members of these appellate committees
are as follows :-(Authy: Para 25 of GOI, MOD Ltr No. 1(1)/81/Pen-C) dated 22 Nov 83).

takes about 6 months from the date pension papers and RCSR are received at P&WW to finalize
the Service Pension (in observations free cases). Thereafter accepted disability pension claims are
sent to Addl CDA (AF) with RCSR and other documents for issue of disability PPO.
Note – “D” indicates date of discharge.
PROCESSING TIME FOR APPEAL FINALISATION
15.
In case of First Appeal against rejection of Disability Pension (DP), it is sent to Air HQ for
consideration by Appellate Committee on First Appeals. It takes about 6-8 months to finalise the first
appeal. The Second Appeal is forwarded to MOD by Air HQs for consideration by Defence Minister’s
Appellate Committee. It takes about 9-12 months to finalise the second appeal.
IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF DISABILITY PENSION
16.
There are certain important aspects of Disability Pension, which must be known by all personnel
who are in low medical category. These aspects are: (a)
The entire disability pension is exempted from income Tax.
(b)
The disability pension is granted for the rank held by an individual at the time of onset of
last attributable/aggravated disease/injury and not for the rank held by him at the time of his
discharge from service in RMB cases. However, if an individual invalided out of service under
clause mentioned in 3 (a) or (b) above is granted disability pension for the rank in which he is
invalided out.
(c)
Like other pensions, merging of 50% DA as Dearness Pay + DA on total is admissible on
disability pension also.
(d)
Disability pension normally consists of two elements: (i)
Service element of disability pension and
(ii)
Disability element of disability pension
22
(e)
Both disability and service elements (together) are entitled only when the individual is
discharged under clause mentioned in Para 3 (a) & (b) above.
(f)
For those individuals who are invalided out of service on medical grounds by an IMB and
who fulfill the primary conditions for grant of disability pension as per Para 153 of Pension
Regulations, their disability pension will consist of disability element as well as service element.
However those individuals who discharge before 15 years (airmen) / 20 years (NC(E)) of
service but were not invalidated out of service on medical grounds, are not eligible for
disability pension as per Para 153 of Pension Regulation, such individuals will not be entitled
for service element of disability pension and will only get disability element of disability pension.
(g)
For those individuals who were initially given Service Pension/ Invalid Pension and who
subsequently become eligible for disability pension, they will get only Disability Element of
disability pension in addition to their SP/IP.
(h)
Personnel are entitled to get commuted portion of Service Pension / Invalid Pension /
Service Element / Disability Element. However, this provision on disability element is available
only if the disability is accepted first time for life and not through RAMB at a later date.
(i)
The deficiency in service for eligibility to Service Pension/Invalid Pension cannot be
condoned if an individual is invalided (IMB case).
(j)
The personnel who are invalided out of service solely on medical grounds under Med
Cat “ApGp”, with a minimum of 20% disability with at-least one year of service are entitled to
get disability benefit PAYABLE FROM AFGIS that is worked out as follows:
Disability Benefit = (Insurance Cover X Disability %) + Survival Benefit
2
100
NOTE- 1. Cases of Alcoholism, Drug Addiction, self-inflicted Injury (Disability arising out of
attempted suicide or intentional acts resulting in criminal conviction) are not eligible for
this Disability Benefit from AFGIS.
2. This benefit is also not admissible to an individual who discharge under clause
mentioned in Para 3 (b) above.
ADVISE ON DISABILITY PENSION TO INDIVIDUAL CLAIMANTS
17. This office is receiving a series of representations and claims from ex-airmen/NCs (E) on account of
disability pension. A large number of representations are sent to VIPs like President, Prime minister,
Defence Minister, CAS etc. with strong emotional appeal to grant disability pension. A large number of
court cases are being fought in the courts of law on the issue of eligibility of disability pension. Since
the rejection rate of disability pension is in the region of 90%, therefore, almost all the
representations are forwarded by those individuals who feel that they should have got the disability
pension but their case for disability pension has been rejected. We would like to clarify here that
eligibility to disability pension is not an emotional issue. The eligibility of disability pension is based on
the existing rules and regulations on the matter. Therefore, we would like to advise the individuals who
are expecting to get the disability pension on following lines: (a)
If you have been invalided out or have been discharged / superannuated with medical
category lower than “Cat A4G1” then eligibility to disability pension concerns you.
(b)
You must take pains to understand as to what disability pension is and why and how it is
given. If the rule position is not clear in the mind of the individual then harping on an emotional
issue does not help in getting disability pension.
(c)
It must be clearly understood that disability pension is not meant as a compensation
for all disabilities acquired by an individual during his service career. It is primarily meant as a
23
compensation for those disabilities only, which are attributable to or aggravated by military
service.
(d)
Eligibility to Disability Pension purely depends upon specialist medical opinion of
initial Medical Board. Therefore, the findings of COI/Injury Report, in case of injury and the
recommendations of IMB/RMB/RAMB in case of disease are very critical.
(e)
While traveling on leave (to and from) with FRW / CV, without FRW/CV, on Annual Leave
or Casual Leave, if any injury is met during journey period (starting from duty station and
reaching upto leave station and vice versa through main route) then the injury is attributable to
service. Any injury sustained at the leave station is not (R) not attributable to service. Any
leave cannot be treated as ‘duty’. The term ‘duty’ has been defined in detail in the
“Entitlement Rules for Pensionary Awards to Defence personnel, 1982”.
CONCLUSION
18.
Disability Pension is basically compensation to an individual for a disability, which has been
caused due to Military Service. It is not a compensation for all other kinds of disability, which
have no direct relation with Military Service. As per the rules given in Pension Regulations a very fair
decision is given on this matter by the concerned agencies. Disability Pension primarily depends upon
the specialist medical opinion of the released/invalid medical board. Therefore, there is a need to
understand the eligibility conditions of disability pension. There is also a need to understand the
importance of specialist medical opinion on this matter. Our experience indicates that over 90% of
cases, which are considered for disability pension, are rejected on the basis of specialist medical
opinion as given by RMB/IMB. It is, therefore, important that the concept of disability pension is clearly
understood by the retiring airmen and NCs (E) clearly.

DOES NOT REALISE HOW LITTLE HE KNOWS.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Individuals who are either getting disability pension or are expecting to get disability pension ask
various kinds of queries and questions. Some of the common questions on this matter are given below:
Q.1. When I was selected in the IAF I was fit therefore whatever disease/disability I have
picked up in service is because of the hard nature of Military Service. Therefore, why is my
disease/disability categorized as not attributable to/aggravated by the military service?
ANS A disability can creep in a fully fit person either through an injury or through a disease. If the
disability is due to injury, then the COI/Injury Report will comment on the circumstances under which the
injury took place. If the injury has taken place while discharging an Air Force duty, only then, it will be
attributable to the service, not otherwise. Similarly, a disease can emerge due to constitutional / genetic
reasons or due to situation created by the Military Service. The Specialist Medical Officers in IMB/RMB
have clear guidelines (IAP 4303) on how to distinguish between the two. The specialist Medical opinion
will be considered as final for the purpose of deciding attributability to / aggravation by Military Service.
Q.2. What is RAMB? My disability was initially assessed as 60% but now in the RAMB it has
been reduced to 20%. Why?
ANS The disability percentage initially granted to the individual by IMB/RMB can reduce with time
bound improvement. However certain other disease/disability can increase in percentage with time
bound deterioration. The purpose of RAMB (Re-Assessment Medical Board) is to reassess this
disability and reduce/increase the disability percentage as per specialist medical opinion. Accordingly
the RAMB has the powers to reduce the disability percentage from 60% to 20% or even less. Similarly
RAMB can increase disability percentage from 60% to higher figures. However, even if disability
percentage is reduced to less than 20%, still the service element (where applicable) with DA continues.
Q.3.
What is OTRAMB in respect of Pre – 96 retirees?
ANS The earlier system was that the disease /disability were reviewed periodically every two to three
years or less after discharge /superannuation by RAMB. This system was causing a lot of
inconvenience to pensioners who were old and disabled. The Govt, therefore, decided to conduct one
last and final, One Time RAMB for Pre-96 disability pensioners. The recommendations of the RAMB on
the disability percentage were to be treated as final and for life.
Q.4. When I have discharged (LMC) at a higher rank why am I getting disability pension for
lower rank?
ANS Disability Pension is given for the rank, which was held at the time of the onset of the
disease/injury. It has nothing to do with the rank holding at the time of discharge. However, in medically
boarded out (IMB) cases an individual get disability pension for the rank held by him on the date of
invaliding from service.
Q.5.
Am I entitled for DA / Family pension on Disability Pension?
ANS Merging of 50% DA as Dearness Pay and admissible DA on total is entitled on disability pension.
Family pension is entitled on service element of disability pension as well as on Invalid Pension.
However those pensioners who are not in receipt of Invalid pension/ service elements of disability
pension are not eligible for FP.
Q.6.
I am a case of RMB. Why my disability is not rounded off to higher figure like IMB cases?
ANS The special provision of rounding off disability percentage to higher figure is only applicable for
individuals who are invalided out of service solely on medical grounds through an IMB or discharged
being medically unfit for present trade and unwilling to remuster to other trade (post-96 only). It is not
applicable for normal discharges through an RMB.
25
Q.7. I am a pre – 96 IMB case. Why my disability pension is not rounded off like Post – 96 IMB
cases?
ANS The provision of rounding off disability percentage to specified higher figure for IMB cases has
been introduced on the recommendations of Vth Pay Commission. Therefore, it is applicable for Armed
Forces personnel who were in service on 01 Jan 96 or join/joined service thereafter. It is regretted to
say that the provisions of rounding off are not applicable for Pre-96 IMB retirees also.
Q.8.
I have gone out of service at own request. Why am I not eligible for Disability Pension?
ANS As per Note at Para 8.3 of MOD letter No. 1(2)/97/D(Pen-C) dated 31 Jan 2001 and Note 2 (b) of
Air HQ letter No. Air HQ/24229/SOP/PP&R 3(i)/CL/40/06 dtd 31 Oct 06, a person going out of service at
his own request is not eligible for disability pension.
Q.9.
I am an SNLR case. Why, I am not entitled for service element in disability pension?
ANS As per interpretation of Audit Authorities, service element in disability pension is only authorised
when an individual is invalided out of service on medical grounds i.e IMB Discharges. Since individuals
who go out on SNLR grounds do not fit the category of invalidation out of service on medical grounds
therefore, those individuals (SNLR case), who are low in medical category and are eligible for disability
pension, are only given disability element of disability pension and not the service element.
Q.10. I am a pre-1964 retiree with low medical category. Why I am not entitled for invalid
pension like post – 1964 retiree?
ANS The provision of invalid pension is applicable only for Post – 64 retirees as per the Govt orders in
this matter. Please refer Para 171 of Pension Regulations for IAF, 1961 (Part-I) for more clarification.
Q.11. Who is supposed to revise/What is the procedure for revising my disability pension rates
as per the new pay commission?
ANS In case of Pre-06, if an individual is already drawing the pension, then the onus of revising his
disability pension and DA as per new pay commission/New DA rates lies with the Pension Disbursing
Office (Bank, DPDO, Treasury Office). To implement this, PCDA(P), Allahabad has already issued
instructions to all PDAs vide Circular No. 410 dated 13 May 09. AFRO has no direct role in this revision.
However, in case of problems, pensioners can contact AFRO who will issue an advisory to the PDA on
this matter. However, in case of Post – 96 pensioners, the disability pension will be revised by JCDA
(AF).
Q.12. My husband/ son is invalided out of service. He is mentally un-sound/in a vegetable
states and can not get up from the bed. Can I draw his pension as his wife/father/mother/ NOK?
ANS. As per Para 9 and 38 of Pension Payment Instructions 1973 Edition, there is a provision to
collect pension by next of kin on behalf of an individual who is not mentally fit (i.e. insane cases etc).
However in this procedure there are checks and balances to protect the interest of the pensioner. Such
cases can be referred to Pension disbursing office (bank etc) or AFRO for advice on the procedure
given in the PPI.
Q.13. My RMB/IMB has recommended a very high percentage of disability (50 %, 80%, 100%
etc.) then why am I not eligible for disability pension?
ANS To become eligible for disability pension, besides the disability percentage, the injury/disease
should also be attributable to /aggravated by Military service. Therefore, despite high disability
percentage an individual will not be eligible for disability pension, if his medical board (IMB/RMB) has
given opinion that the injury/disease was not attributable to/aggravated by the Military Service.
26
Q.14. Can I get a copy of the COI and RMB/IMB/RAMB proceedings? How will I know my
disability percentage and whether my disease/ injury is attributable to/ aggravated by service?
ANS Yes. After adjudication of disability pension claim, P&WW (DP) sends an original copy of
IMB/RMB to individual alongwith letter communicated regarding rejection/acceptance of disability
pension claim. To know your disability percentage and whether your disability is attributable to /
aggravated by service, you can find it while signing on the pages of IMB/RMB. Airmen/NCs(E) are
advised not to sign on blank forms. Regarding a copy of RAMB, it may be send to individual if he
demands.
Q.15.
How frequently and at what interval RAMB is required to be carried out?
ANS As per present policy, wherever possible (for disability of permanent nature), the medical board
will recommend the disability pension for lifetime. For other cases based on medical opinion one RAMB
will be carried within two to five years or less and a final decision on lifetime disability will be given.
There will normally be no requirement for a second RAMB.
Q.16. What is Invalid Gratuity?
ANS In case an individual is invalidated out of service, on account of causes, which are neither
attributable to nor aggravated by Air Force Service and his actual qualifying service is more than five
years but less than ten years, then he is eligible for grant of invalid gratuity and DCRG. In case service
of an individual is less than five years and more than six months, he is eligible for invalid gratuity only.
The quantum of invalid gratuity is equal to one month’s pay of the rank last held, for each year of service
rendered. The pay means the pay last drawn. Invalid gratuity is exempted from Income Tax.
Q.17. What is the Appeal Medical Board and where is it conducted?
ANS In all cases at the appeal stage, where the Appeal Medical Authority disagrees with the awards
of the Invaliding Medical Board/Release Medical Board (IMB/RMB), a fresh Physical Examination is
held, for which sanction is issued by DGAFMS. The physical examination is held at Base Hospital Delhi
Cantt. Free Railway Warrant is not admissible to attend the Appeal Medical Board.
The decision of
the Appeal Medical Board is considered final and no further review is entertained. (Authy : O/o
DGAFMS letter No. 16036/DGAFMS/MA(Pens)/12 dated 16 Mar 05.)
Q.18. What is Review Medical Board?
ANS
(a)
At the time of conducting IMB/RMB, if IMB/RMB accepts the disability of any
individual as attributable to / aggravated by service but assessed it at less than 20%, then
the concerned individual has right to ask for Review Medical Board, if he so desired.
(b)
Further, those personnel who are granted Disability Element (DE) of Disability Pension
for specific period and later on their disability has been assessed at less than 20% for life
through RAMB and a result of which their Disability Element has been discontinued.
In case the disability is re-assessed at less than 20% by RAMB then the individual is not
satisfied with the assessment of the RAMB then he is given an option to submit an application to
this office for Review Medical Board. The application forwarded to higher authority (i.e.
DGAFMS). On acceptance of the application by DGAFMS, the Review Medical Board is
conducted for which the individual has to report to hospitals, zone wise as mentioned below, at
their own expense after receiving call up letter from the Hospital. Free Railway Warrant is not
admissible to attend the Review Medical Board. The decision of Review Medical Board is
considered final and no further appeal/representation is entertained against the decision.
The Review Medical Board is being conducted at the following two hospitals only:(i)
For North Zone
-
Army Hospital (R&R), New Delhi – 10
(ii)
For South Zone
-
AFMC, Pune
27
Q. 19. I am not aware about my disability’s attributability aspects and degree of percentage
assessed by RMB/IMB. How can I know the same?
ANS. As per para 12 of DGAFMS letter No. 16050/DGAFMS/MA(Pens) dtd 25 Jan 07, signature of the
individual on all pages of AFMSF-16 are obtained by RMB/IMB at the time of conducting board. That
time individuals can know their attributability aspects and degree of percentage of disability written by
board in the AFMSF-16. Further, after adjudication of their disability pension claim by AOC AFRO, a
copy of approved AFMSF-16 is despatched to them for their reference. Individuals are advised not to

BASIS OF DECIDING THE TYPE OF FAMILY PENSION
For all deaths of a retired ex-airman drawing his service pension, only Ordinary Family Pension
5.
is admissible. However in certain circumstances, the widow of an Airman, invalidated out of service with
disability, attributable to service, when died within 10 yrs of service, could become eligible to SFP on
fulfilling the prescribed criteria. For death of serving airman if the death is not attributable to or
aggravated by Military service then the widow /NOK will get Ordinary Family Pension (OFP). However,
if the death is considered as attributable to or aggravated by Military Service then the widow /NOK will
get Special Family Pension (SFP). Further, if an airman dies due to direct enemy action on the border
or is killed by militants or is killed by anti social elements while in pursuit of his duty, then the
widow/NOK will be entitled to Liberalised Family Pension (LFP). The decision as to what kind of family
pension is to be given is taken by the pension sanctioning authority based on the following reports:
(a)
Findings of Court of Inquiry (COI) which is based on factual picture, which emerges out of
circumstances of death, statements of eyewitnesses and medical reports. The COI also has the
recommendations of the Commanding Officer and other senior officers in the chain of command.
(b)
Opinion of Specialist Medical Officer and the medical aspects emerging in Fatal Medical
Documents.
OTHER SALIENT ASPECTS OF FAMILY PENSION
6.
The salient aspects of family pension are as follows: (a)
When a death takes place while in service, AFRO establishes the legality of the wife and
forwards family pension claim forms to her. Within one week of receipt of completed family
pension claim forms, AFRO releases Pending Enquiry Award (PEA), which is equivalent to
Ordinary Family Pension. Thereafter, once the court of inquiry and fatal medical documents etc.
are received at AFRO, they are forwarded to Pension Sanctioning Authority (PSA) for deciding
the type of family pension. For Armed Forces, the Pension Sanctioning Authority is the Controller
General of Defence Accounts/ his representative offices. These agencies are audit agencies,
which act as financial watchdogs of the Govt. The pension sanctioning authority decides on the
type of pension and issues the relevant pension orders to the widow/NOK. In addition to family
pension, the IAFBA provides family assistance of Rs. 3000/- per month for 15 years (Rs.
2000/- per month for 08 yrs in case of death after retirement) to the widow. Besides these
financial benefits there are certain other kinds of assistance (scholarship for children, help in
daughters’ marriage etc) which is provided by AFWWA (C) and IAFBA to the widow of
airman/NC(E) who dies while in service.
(b)
Since 1986 joint notification is being carried out for all the retiring airmen. This joint
notification basically means that besides the name of the airman who is proceeding on
retirement, the name of the legal wife is also notified in the Pension Payment Order (PPO) of
the airman. Thus, after the death of an airman after retirement, the widow can approach the
pension disbursing bank with death certificate and certain other documents which are demanded
by bank and her family pension would automatically commence from the concerned bank on the
same PPO on which her husband was drawing pension. It is pertinent to mention that joint
notification can only be done in respect of wife. There is no provision for joint notification in
respect of parents / children. In addition to Family Pension. If the lady has her AFWWA
membership card / the card number, then AFWWA (C) will pay her a lump sum of Rs. 5,000/(One time payment only).
(c)
Children are normally not eligible for family pension after 25 years of
age/employment/marriage whichever is earlier. However, there is a special provision of life long
pension to Handicapped children who are not capable of earning their livelihood. Based on
the required medical certificates and verification report, Ordinary Family Pension can be
released to handicapped child after the death of widow when his/her turn comes. Besides above,
there is a provision for family pension beyond 25 years of age in respect of
widowed/divorced/unmarried daughters provided other conditions are fulfilled as above.
31
(d)
Any second marriage, when the first wife is alive and not divorced through a court of law,
is null and void. Such marriage is illegal and the second wife is not entitled to family pension.
Even after the first wife has died subsequently, the second marriage will continue to remain null
and void and the mere death of first wife does not make the second marriage legal. All ‘WILLS’
on family pension are null and void because, a will can be written only on own property, whereas
Family Pension is Govt money (Supreme Court Judgement).
ADVISE ON MATTERS ON FAMILY PENSION
7.
The airmen who are proceeding on retirement should ensure the following: (a)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Some common questions, which are received by this office: Q.1. I am the mother of the late airman, why should the wife get the pension when my son was
not happy with her. Why can’t I get the pension?
ANS : As per Pension Regulation, wife is the highest eligible heir for receiving family pension. How
happy / un-happy your son was with your daughter in-law could have been an issue for divorce, had
your son been alive. However, after his death the only issue is the legality of marriage, your son’s
happiness/ un-happiness has no direct bearing on her legal eligibility to Family Pension. Mother is the
highest eligible heir only for a bachelor airman (incase of married airman when wife and children
become disqualified for FP).
Q.2.
Since the first wife is dead, why can’t I get the pension as second wife?
ANS: When you married, the first wife was alive, therefore in legal terms, your marriage had become
null and void ab-initio and will remain null and void through out. The mere death of first wife does not
change the null and void status of your illegitimate marriage.
Q.3. My husband and his first wife were under the process of mutual divorce; I met the first
wife and took her clearance for my marriage. After six months of my marriage legal divorce was
granted between the first wife and my husband. Therefore, I fail to understand as to what the
problem is and why I am being denied my family pension?
ANS: Your actions may appear to be socially correct but they are wrong from the legal point of view.
You should have married only after divorce of first wife. Till the divorce order by a court of law was
issued to the first wife she continued to be the legal wife of your late husband. Since you married six
months before the date of divorce, therefore, your marriage has become null and void and will remain
so. The consent of first wife does not provide legality to your marriage. Since your marriage is null and
void ab-initio, you are not eligible for family pension.
Q.4. I am the mother of the late airman. His minor children from first wife are with me. After the
death of his first wife my son had married another lady who does not look after the children born
from my first daughter in law. Can I get pension on behalf of minor children of my first daughter
in law?
ANS. Pension Regulations provide for division of pension between the children of first legal wife and
the second legal wife (i.e. marriage after legal divorce / death of first wife). If after verification it is proved
that you had been keeping the minor children with you from the first wife of the late airman then you can
produce a guardianship certificate and as a legal guardian of the minor child you will get 50% of the
entitled pension till the child is 18 years of age thereafter the child himself can receive his pension. The
other 50% will go to the legal second wife. After the first child from first wife attains the age of 25 years
of age then the pension will go to the second child till he/she attains the age of 25 years of age. After
both the children have reached 25 years of age (in case of daughters’ when they get married) full
pension will be restored to the second legal wife.
Q.5. My daughter in law is suspected of murdering my newly married son in connivance with
her lover. She is pregnant and in police custody. She is a blot on the name of woman-hood.
Please make sure that no pension is paid to her and I am paid pension as mother.
ANS: As per Pension Regulations when an eligible heir is suspected of murder she will not be paid
with any pensionary benefits till the final decision of the court. However, as per law every accused is
innocent till proved otherwise in the court of law. Therefore, as per Pension Regulation family pension
will remain frozen and will not be paid to any other eligible heir including you till the final court
judgement. Even if your daughter in law is convicted, since she is pregnant her child will be the next
highest eligible heir for family pension. Since you are alleging that the child belongs to the lover and not
to your son, you are at a liberty to request for a DNA test and get a suitable order from a court of law in
this matter. No family pension will be disbursed in this case till the court gives an order on either
convicting or releasing your daughter in law. Further, in case the daughter in law is convicted the onus
of proving your allegation that the child belongs to her lover and not to your late son squarely rests on
you. If you fail to get a suitable court order the pension will go to the legal guardian of the child.
35
Q.6. My husband has died recently and I went to collect my Family Pension to the bank as per
joint notification. However, there is a difference of my name in the joint notification and the
account I have with the bank. The bank has refused to pay me Family Pension. Please advice me
and help me.
ANS : Family Pension has a history of conflict between the legal and the illegal wife for grabbing family
pension. Since only the legal wife is entitled for Family Pension therefore, the checks and balances at
every Govt agency in terms of correct name of the widow and her correct identity are very critical for
commencing Family Pension. Your husband should have been very careful in ensuring that your name
has been written correctly in his service records. We have instances of widows who have fought for ten
to twenty years in a court of law to prove their status as a legal wife. Now we will carry out an
investigation through our Air Force Police and thereafter, based on the emerging facts we will give you a
suitable advice on future course of action.
Q.7. My husband left Air Force as a bachelor and married me after two years of retirement.
Since you have written that as per the records at AFRO he was a bachelor. Please advice me and
help me.
ANS: Your husband was drawing pension and therefore he must be aware that his wife will be entitled
for family pension. Not informing about his marriage and birth of children after his discharge to this office
was a grave error on his part. Now you will have to satisfy certain legal and procedural formalities to
prove that you are his legally wedded wife and that your children were born out of marriage with him. In
addition, we will do our own enquiry on this matter. Please wait for our detailed letter.
Q.8. My husband has been declared as a deserter and dismissed from service. However, I feel
that he is missing and has probably died in un-fortunate circumstances. I have no money and no
one is there to look after me. Please advice and help me.
ANS : Desertion is a serious offence for any fighting force. Therefore, till your husband is a deserter no
financial benefits can be given to you. Since you feel that he is not a deserter and he might have died
under un-fortunate circumstances. We will write to the last parent unit of your husband to carry out a
fresh Court of Inquiry into this matter in accordance with Air HQ letter No. Air HQ/40295/PA-III dated
08 Sep 99. If based on this inquiry, it emerges that your husband is not a deserter but a missing
presumed dead person then your case for Family Pension would be considered. In addition to this
provision, you also have the option to go to a court of law (after seven years of your husband
presumably being missing) under section 108 of Indian Evidence Act. If the court declares your husband
as a missing presumed dead person, then again your case for Family Pension could be considered.
However, please be informed that any deliberate attempt by you for wrongful financial gains by willfully
hiding the fact of his desertion can subsequently result in criminal proceedings against you.
Q.9
I am an employed lady with State / Central Govt, my husband has expired, since I am
earning a handsome salary, will I get family pension or not?
ANS: Yes, you are entitled for Family Pension of your deceased husband alongwith applicable rate of
Dearness Relief irrespective of your pay scale. This is a privilege given to all legally wedded wives.
Q.10. What is the procedure for withdrawing pension of an insane /physically handicapped
pensioner?
ANS : The procedure for such an eventuality is given in PPI Para 38. In order to protect the interest of
the pensioner certain checks and balances are there in this procedure. Please write to AFRO for a
detailed advice on this matter.
Q.11. If 50 % DA is merged with basic pay or a new pay commission is implemented then will
my pension get revised?
ANS : The decision as to whether the pension is to be revised or not has to be taken by the Govt. If the
Govt decides to revise the pension, then going by the past experience it is expected that revision orders
with revision table (old rate versus new rate) will be forwarded to Pension Disbursing Offices (Banks,
Treasury and DPDO) who will be responsible for automatic revision of pension. This office will have no
direct role on this matter, however, if a representation is received at this office, suitable advise will be
given to pensioners.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q.1. I was discharged from training Institute under the clause “ UN LIKELY TO BECOME
EFFICIENT AIRMAN” (ULMEA). I have not got my Service Gratuity so far. Please advice me if I
am eligible for the same?
ANS The minimum Qualifying Service (QS) to earn Service Gratuity (SG) is five years. Since you
have served for less than five years, therefore you are not entitled for SG.
Q.2. I was discharged from the IAF after completion of ten years of QS under clause “SERVICE
NO LONGER REQUIRED”(SNLR). Am I entitled for Pro-rata pension?
ANS As per Pension Regulations for the Air Force, minimum QS to earn Service Pension is fifteen
years. Further, it is also clarified that there is no provision in the IAF for grant of Pro-rata pension for
those who have served for less than fifteen years. Therefore, you are not entitled to any pension.
However, you are entitled for SG and DCRG.
Q.3. I was dismissed from IAF by sentence of Court-Martial after completion of 15 years of
total QS. Now, more than one year has passed I have not got my pension. Please guide me

the provision of Air Force Act 1950 are not entitled for gratuity/pension for the service rendered by them.

CHAPTER VI
WELFARE
INTRODUCTION
1.
The relationship of an ex-airman with AFRO continues throughout his life. The welfare section of
Pension and Welfare Wing at AFRO is like an orderly room for retired personnel. The ex-airmen / NOK
need continuous help from AFRO on many matters like counting of former service with IAF for new
employment, fixation of pay with new employer, pension related problems, issue of various welfare
related certificates and employment under indigent circumstances to widows/NOKs (of those personnel
died while in service) etc. As a record office, all actions at AFRO can only be initiated on the basis of the
records of ex airmen available at AFRO. Thus the preservation of service records is a major task at
Pension and Welfare Wing of AFRO. The policy on maintenance of records (RCSR/ medical
documents) at AFRO is that medical records of an airman are destroyed after 15 yrs and his RCSR
is destroyed after 25 yrs from the date of his discharge. Certain essential details of the individual
are however copied in one page of a register before destruction of RCSR. This page is called LONG
ROLL. A long roll is preserved indefinitely. As on date, there is no policy / timeframe for destruction of
long rolls. Besides welfare related assistance from AFRO, a lot of other benefits / facilities can be
availed by an ex-airman/NOK through the Director General of Resettlement and Zilla Sainik Boards.
DEFINITION OF EX-SERVICEMEN
1.

Note: In all cases recruits were not being covered under the category of Ex-Servicemen including
those recruits who were in receipt of disability pension. The policy however has been revised. As per
MoD (Deptt of Ex-servicemen Welare) Memo No. 12/1/2005/D (Res) dated 01 Feb 06, it has been
decided with the approval of Raksha Mantri that such recruits who were boarded out / released on

Counting of former service.
Ex-airmen who are re-employed in any Govt or Semi
Govt organisation / PSUs may opt for counting of their former service rendered in Indian Air
Force under the provision of Rule - 19 of CCS rules 1972. To avail this benefit, the individual
has to surrender his service gratuity / DCRG, Commutation and cease to draw pension wef the
date of re-employment. However, he can retain the pension amount drawn from the date of
discharge to the date of his re-employment. The individual will have to approach his re-employer
within one year of his confirmation in the re-employed post. The case for counting of former
service is required to be referred to pension and welfare wing through the re-employer.
(d)
Re-Fixation Of Pay In The Re-Employed Organization. Re-employed pensioners are
eligible for re-fixation of their pay in re-employed organization. The subject matter is governed
by Govt of India, Min of PP&G (Dept of personnel and Trg) OM No. 2/1/86/Est Pt – II dated
31 Jul 1986. For this purpose, the re-employed pensioners may approach AFRO through their
re-employer.
(e)
Issue of NOC for grant of Family Pension From Civil Organisation. The policy on
payment of pension envisages that Family Pension can be paid from one Govt Organisation
only. However if the family pension scheme in re-employed service falls in the contributory
Family Pension scheme of 1971 and 1995 (schemes where Family Pension is not paid out of
Govt Fund), then a second family pension can be paid from the defence side also. In case of
retiring married airmen, the name of wife is jointly notified in the PPO of the pensioner. In case
the individual wishes to draw his family pension from civil, he needs to give an option to this
effect through his re-employer and PDO. On receipt of the option, AFRO takes up the case with
PSA for issue of a new PPO reflecting cancellation of Family pension from Defence. NOC for
grant of family pension from civil is issued by AFRO to the re-employer on receipt of cancellation
PPO from PSA i.e. JCDA (AF).
Authy: Govt of India, Min of Defence letter No. 10(6)/92/D (Pen/Ser) Dt 28 Sep 92.
(f)
Issue of Certificates. Various certificates like trade certificates and Graduation
certificates etc are issued to retiring airmen by their parent unit to enhance their re-employability
in the civil. Individual is expected to maintain and preserve them meticulously. However, AFRO
issues duplicate certificates in case the original is lost or mutilated. The, pensioners can also
approach AFRO for issue of extract of PORs / posting detail certificate for admission of their
wards in Kendriya Vidyalaya (KV) or any other certificates on need basis. In case of death of
pensioners a certificate called Service Particular Certificate (SPC) is issued to the wife / NOK of
the deceased airman/NC (E).

CHAPTER VIII
ACTIONS RECOMMENDED AS A “MUST DO” FOR PENSIONERS
1.
At the time of retirement and during the preparatory phase of retirement, an average airmen
/NCs(E) is very myopic and normally does not think beyond his timely payment of pension and other NE
benefits. However, we at Pension and Welfare Wing of AFRO are dealing with over 1, 50,000 surviving
pensioners and are therefore privileged to a lot of foresight on post retirement complications. We,
therefore, recommend the following actions as a “MUST DO” for every pensioner:
(a)
He must make sure that his own name, his wife’s name, his children’s name and their
date of birth is correctly recorded in the Record Copy of Sheet Roll (RCSR) at AFRO. It must be
borne in mind that name filled up in IAFF (P) 5 at column ‘What is your name?’ is taken for
issuance of Discharge Order and Pension Payment Order.
(b)
He must make sure that POR for all occurrences in general and financially affecting
occurrences (Local Allowances, Leave encashment, GCB, Sterilisation Pay etc) in particular are
taken and reflected in the UCSR and the UCSR is updated in all respects.
(c)
He must collect all eligible certificates from his last unit and properly maintain them
because they are extremely useful for re-employment and other purposes in future.
(d)
He must collect first pension and amount of Death Cum Retirement Gratuity / Commuted
value of pension, in person.
(e)
He must get his name registered with his respective Zila Sainik Board (ZSB) and collect
his Ex-serviceman Identity Card. It must be remembered that ZSB extends help only to those
ex-servicemen who are registered with them.
(f)
He must mention his full particulars (Ser No, Rank, Name, and Date of Discharge etc)
while making correspondence with AFRO or any other agency. AFRO can not locate the RCSR
of an ex-airman/ NC (E) without his service No and other details.
(g)
He must preserve following documents after retirement: (i)
(ii)
(iii)
(iv)
(v)
(vi)
(vii)
(viii)
(ix)
(x)
(xi)
Last Pay Certificate (LPC).
Copy of PPOs/Corrigendum PPOs.
Photocopy of updated Unit Copy of Sheet Roll (UCSR).
Discharge Book.
Retired Officer Identity Card (Applicable only for HFO/HFL).
Ex-servicemen Identity Card Issued BY Zila Sainik Board (ZSB).
Dependent Card for family members issued by his last unit.
Post Retirement Insurance Certificate (PRIC) issued by AFGIS.
AFWWA membership Card.
SMART Card for ECHS membership.
Copies of all-important correspondence with AFRO.
NOTE: He must brief his wife to preserve these documents even after his death, for as long as the wife is alive and
drawing pension.
He must be clear about the procedure for treatment under ECHS. He must know his
(h)
nearest ECHS hospital (Polyclinic/MH/empanelled hospitals).
(j)
He must anticipate old age related problems, which happen after retirement i.e. Dental
Care/Artificial Dentures/ vulnerability to Cataract, prostrate, high BP, Diabetes, Arthritis etc.
Besides taking preventive measures he must make full use of ECHS facilities for regular check
up and treatment.

CHAPTER IX
EX SERVICEMEN CONTRIBUTORY HEALTH SCHEME (ECHS)
INTRODUCTION
1.
Ex servicemen Contributory Health Scheme (ECHS) is a tri-services project which came into
effect on 01 Apr 2003 vide Govt of India letter No 22 (1)/01/US (WE)/D (Res) dated 30 Dec 2002. The
scheme is functioning under an integral staff with its Central Office located at Army Headquarters and
thirteen Regional Centres located at various major cities. ECHS will cater for Medicare of all Exservicemen (ESM) in receipt of pension including disability and family pension. This would also include
wife/husband, legitimate children and wholly dependent parents. There are a total of 227 Polyclinics
fuctioning in the country. Out of these, 123 polyclinics are at non-military stations and balance 104
Augmented Armed Forces Clinics are at Military Stations. The scheme is being implemented in a
phased manner. Every service person retired/retiring after 01 Apr 2003 will compulsorily have to
become member of ECHS by contributing one time his/her share of amount towards the membership.
Similarly all those retired prior to 01 Apr 2003 can opt to become an ECHS member by payee the
contribution in lump sum. There would be no restriction on age or medical condition for this scheme.
This is Govt funded scheme through public money (Authy 22(1)/01/US/(WE)/D(Res) dated 30 Dec 02).
2.
ESM/Pensioners are presently not authorised for treatment in MH as a right, they are only
entitled for treatment i.e. subject to availability of bed space, doctors and medicines. By joining the
ECHS scheme, they come in the authorised category of treatment. The only difference is that his/her
initial out patient handling/treatment will be by the ECHS polyclinic rather than the staff surgeon at MH.
In case the ESM requires further reference/ treatment, it can be provided to him in the nearest MH or
can be referred to an empanelled civil hospital of the patient’s choice. ECHS treatment philosophy is out
patient treatment by polyclinics and in-patient treatment by MH (Subject to availability) and from
empanelled hospitals in the station.
ORGANISATION
3.
ECHS scheme is a tri service organisation with its central organisation located at New Delhi and
headed by Adjutant General of the Indian Army. He is assisted by the Director General Discipline,
Ceremonials and Welfare and a Managing Director (Major General). In Air Force, Director of Personal
Services, Air HQ (VB) under AOA coordinates. There are thirteen Regional Centres located all over the
country headed by Regional Directors. Postal address of the Central Organisation and the Regional
Centres are placed at Appendix-‘H’. The scheme would cater for medicare through 227 polyclinics out
of which 104 Military Polyclinics already existing along side service Hospitals and the balance 123 NonMilitary polyclinics are set up in various towns in a phased manner (List placed at Appendix-‘J’) (Authy

IAF PLACEMENT CELL
INTRODUCTION
Placement Cell was established at AFRO on the occasion of 50th year of independence in the
1.
year 1997. The aim of the cell was to assist retired as well as shortly retiring PBOR to find a suitable job
in corporate world. Similar cell was functioning at Air HQ for the benefit of Officers. As the Hon’ble
Raksha Mantri declared the year 2007 as the year of placement for the ex-servicemen, on 18 Jun
07, both the placement cells were merged and IAF Placement Cell came into existence.

layer is formed. The balls of the thumb and all the fingers of the left hand of the individual/after
being wiped, should be laid on the inked slab and rolled from side to side (not rubbed) until
sufficiently inked (this can be learned from experience) and then lightly and carefully rolled on
the paper on which the print is to be taken in such a way that the pattern of the whole of the ball
of the thumb and fingers from side to side is clearly impressed on it. It must be specially borne
in mind that any side movement either at the time of applying or removing the thumb will cause
a smudge and spoil the impressions.
2.
The impression on page 3 is required for permanent record in the audit office that on
page 6 is detached and retained by the pension disbursing office. In the case of family
pensioners not with the unit the impression on the duplicate copy of IAFA-366 or A-368 will be
removed therefrom and pasted on the space provided on pages 3 and 6 of this form.
3.
However, the case of pensioners in respect of whom joint photographs in civil dress with
the wife have been furnished and who are literate enough to sign their name in English, Hindi
or any official regional language, instead of taking their thumb and finger impression as means
of identifications they will be required to affix three specimen signatures on pages 3 and 6 of
the Descriptive Roll.

Sub:- Payment of pension under PPO No……………… through your bank branch.
Dear Sir/Madam,
I wish to receive my pension under PPO No. …………… by getting it credited to the
saving/current bank account no………………….. which is operated jointly in your branch by me and my
spouse, Mr./Mrs………………. In whose favour an authorization for family pension exists in the Pension
Payment Order (PPO).

Central
Pension
Accounting
Office
OM
No.
CPAO/Tech/Amendments/Sch Book/2005-06/69 dated 09.06.2005 which contains the following terms
and conditions. Once pension has been credited to a pensioner’s bank account, liability of the
government / bank ceases. No further liability arises, even if the spouse wrongly draws the amount.
(a)
As pension is payable only daring the life of a pensioner, his/her death shall be intimated
to the bank at the earliest and in any case within one month of the demise, so that the bank does
not continue crediting monthly pension to the joint account with the spouse, after the death of the
pensioner. If, however, any amount has been wrongly credited to the joint account, it shall be
recoverable from the joint account and / or any other account held by the pensioner / spouse
either individually or jointly. The legal heirs, successors, executors etc.,
(b)
Payment of Arrears of Pensions (nomination) Rules, 1983 would continue to be
applicable to the joint account with pensioner’s spouse. Thus, if there is an ‘accepted
nomination’ in accordance with Rule 5 and 6 of these Rules, arrears mentioned in the Rules will
be payable to the niminee.
I accept the above tems and conditions. My spouse too, in token of having accepted
those terms and conditions, has put his/her signature below.
