APPORTIONMENT OF LIABILITY IN RESPECT OF PENSIONS 1. Subject to the adjustments mentioned in paragraph 3, the successor State or each of the successor States shall, in respect of pensions granted before the appointed day by an existing State, pay the pensions drawn in its treasuries. 372 2. Subject to the said adjustments, the liability in respect of pensions of officers serving in connection with the affairs of an existing State who retire or proceed on leave preparatory to retirement before the appointed day, but whose claims for pensions are outstanding immediately before that day, shall be the liability of the successor State, or, if there be two or more successor States, of such one of them as the Central Government may by order specify. 3. In any case where there are two or more successor States, there shall be computed, in respect of the period commencing on the appointed day and ending on the 31st day of March, 1957 and in respect of each subsequent financial year, the total payments made in all the successor States in respect of the pensions referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2. That total representing the liability of the existing State in respect of pensions shall be apportioned between the successor States in the population ratio and any successor State paying more than its due share shall be reimbursed the excess amount by the successor State or States paying less.

4. (1) The liability in respect of the pension of any officer serving immediately before the appointed day in connection with the affairs of an existing State and retiring on or after that day, shall be that of the successor State granting the pension; but the portion of the pension attributable to the service of any such officer before the appointed day in connection with the affairs of that existing State shall, if there be two or more successor States, be allocated between them in the population ratio, and the Government granting the pension shall be entitled to receive from each of the other successor States its share of this liability.

(2) If any such officer was serving after the appointed day in connection with the affairs of more than one successor State, the successor State or States other than the one granting the pension shall reimburse to the Government by which the pension is granted an amount which bears to the portion of the pension attributable to his service after the appointed day the same ratio as the period of his qualifying service after the appointed day under that successor State bears to the total qualifying service of such officer after the appointed day reckoned for the purposes of pension.

(3) In reckoning the said total qualifying service, any service of such officer before the appointed day in connection with the affairs of the Union under the administrative control of the Lieutenant-Governor or Chief Commissioner in any of the existing States of Ajmer, Bhopal, Coorg, Kutch and Vindhya Pradesh shall be added 373 as if the said service had been service after the appointed day in connection with the affairs of the successor State to that existing State. 5.
