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

In the current era most of the veterans live alone when their wards leave them for a better working environment abroad. This applies equally ro PBOR and officers. The deterioration in the physical health is very fast after an age of 75 years and most of the guys need physical assiatance in managing their life. The number of Veterans availing the age related benefits of pension are decreasing slowly. The period beyond the age of 77 years is very critial. Hence it would be prudent on the part of commission to reduce the age of 80 years to 77, 90 years to 87 and 100 to 97 years as these are more realistic.
