§ 1. Sir CHARLES OMAN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the final retiring pension of £l,000 per annum due to members of the Indian Civil Service on the completion of their full term of years may be reduced to or forfeited by those members who, not retiring at present, have not accepted the reduced retiring pension now offered to them but claim the full pension at the approaching end of their full term of service?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Earl Winterton)
No, Sir. A member of the Indian Civil Service who serves his full time will receive on retirement an annuity of £1,000. There is nothing in the Premature Retirement Scheme which affects the annuity payable under normal conditions to an officer who retires after completing the full qualifying period of service.
