The benefit of ACP-I and ACP-II is admissible to those who is granted ACP-I and ACP-II during their service period and same is reflected in PPOs. Payment of higher rank of pension is admissible in cases where ACP is indicated in the PPO.
For example if in a PPO the rank is indicated as Sep ACP-I then he is eligible for revision of his pension for the rank of NK for the same Group and similarly, if in a PPO it is indicated as Sep ACP-II then he is eligible for revision of his pension for the rank of Hav for the same Group.
No benefit of ACP is admissible if ACP is not indicated in the PPO.
