Hi aarti

Pl visit the "Pensioners Portal" - the official website of the Deptt of Pensions& Pensioners' Welfare" (DOPPW) of GOI for exact details.
Link: http://www.pensionersportal.gov.in/CircularReportForPensionForm1.asp
Select in sequence CIRCULARS/ REVISION OF PENSION/ the OMs dtd 1 9 2006 if pre 2006 pensioner/ Om dtd 2 9 2008 if post 2006 pensioner.

Pension after completing 80 yrs shall be 20% on Basic Pension.
Banks/ PDAs etc have already been advised on this policy decision by the DOPPW/ GOI and hence they are supposed to implement without waiting for further formalities.

However better to remind such Banks/ PDAs who are indifferent/ ill-informed/ anti-pensioners!

Other seniors/ knowledgeable may advise pl.

Additional pension is automatically available from the month in which pensioner's date of birth falls.
