O R D E R:

      Under the existing rules, the Andhra Pradesh Government Life Insurance Department issues the Endowment Insurance Policies to the Government employees based on the maximum insurable age of 53 years and these policies will mature at the age of 58 years. In the Government orders fifth to seventh read above, the compulsory premium under the policy has been revised as and when the Revised Pay Scales were implemented to the State Government Employees
based on the recommendations of the successive pay revision
commissions and the existing rates are prescribed in the G.O. seventh read above.

2. In the reference 2nd cited, the Government enhanced the age of superannuation of the State Government employees from (58) years to (60) years.

4. Consequent to enhancement of age of superannuation from (58) years to (60) years and introduction of the Revised Scales of Pay, 2015, the Director of Insurance, in his letter 3rd cited, has sent proposals for enhancement of the maximum Insurable age from 53 years to 55 years and to revise the rates of compulsory premium based on the Revised Scales applicable to various categories of employees. The Government in the memo fourth read above, permitted
the Director of Insurance to take necessary further action and submit detailed proposals after consulting the Actuary and the Accountant General, A&E, Andhra Pradesh.

5. Accordingly, the Director of Insurance has submitted necessary proposal in his letter ninth read above.

(c) An employee who is already a subscriber of the Fund having Policy / Policies, and is aged below (55) years can enhance the premium for additional policies. However, he should submit his application in the prescribed proforma before he actually attains the age of 55years. Under any circumstances proposal shall not be accepted if theapplicant has already attained the age of 55 years on the date of submission of his application, not with standing the fact that the amount was already deducted in the monthly pay bills. Such amounts shall be treated as unauthorized amounts and refunded to the individual following the usual procedure.

d) An employee who is already a subscriber of the Fund but is
aged above (55) years cannot increase the Premium for
additional Policies. However, in respect of those employees,
recovery shall continue at the existing rates of Premium for
