(SHRI NITYANAND RAI)

(a) & (b): The personnel working in Central Armed Police Forces& Assam Rifles (CAPFs& AR) are entitled to pension and other related benefits as governed by Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972. However, CAPFs personnel appointed on or after 01.01.2004 are governed by the New Pension Scheme (NPS).

(c) to (f): There is no proposal under consideration for bringing new entrants who joined CAPFs on or  after  01.01.2004 under  the old pension scheme as applicable to the Armed Forces since service conditions of CAPFs personnel and Defence personnel are governed by different set of rules.
