"151A.—(1) Where a civil servant, as defined by Section twelve of the Superannuation Act, 1887, is appointed by His Majesty or by the Governor in his discretion to any office under the Crown in Burma, the Secre-
tary of State may direct that his service in that office shall qualify for the grant of a pension or gratuity as if it were service rendered in the office held by him as a civil servant immediately before his appointment to service in Burma, and there shall be paid to, or in respect of, him out of the revenues of Burma and shall be charged on those revenues in respect of his service in that office in Burma a pension or gratuity calculated in accordance with the Superannuation Acts, 1834 to 1935, and the Orders, Rules and Regulations made thereunder, but on the basis of the salary of the office last held by him as a civil servant before his appointment to service in Burma:
Provided that nothing in the said Acts, Orders, Rules or Regulations shall operate to prevent the grant of a pension to him with effect from the date on which he may relinquish office in Burma, notwithstanding that at that date he may not have attained the age of sixty.
§ (2) No such direction as aforesaid shall be given in relation to service in any office if the service of the person in question in that office would qualify for the grant of a pension without any such direction."—[Sir H. O'Neill.]
