The Kerala government has given assurance that it will assess the request made by retired IAS officers for supplementary benefits beyond their pension, akin to the privileges granted to retired judges of the Kerala High Court.

Currently, retiring Chief Justices and Judges are entitled to additional benefits of Rs 25,000 and Rs 20,000 per month, respectively. The IAS Association in Kerala is advocating for similar benefits for retired IAS officers.

In response to an RTI query, the government stated that it will review the demands put forth by the IAS officers. It was disclosed in the RTI reply that the government lacks data pertaining to the number of retired IAS personnel eligible for such benefits.
