It regulates issues such as the maximum pension, the liability of pensioners, suspension of pensions on re-employment, gratuity where an officer dies in service, pensions to dependants when an officer dies as a result of an injury or a disease contracted during his duty and death or injury owing to war conditions. Service which qualifies for earning an entitlement to pension is territorially expanded to service anywhere in the Commonwealth.
