However, if any retired official requests for individual FICs in lieu of old FTC before the expiry of validity, such requests may not be denied and individual FICs should be issued free of cost treating it as renewal. In case of officials who retired after April 2015 and got an FIC with life time validity, they may be allowed to get it replaced with individual FICs, free of cost, as per their convenience. FICs in the booklet form will, however, continue as a valid identity proof for travel on PRCP till its replacement with individual FICs in due course so that pensioners do not face any problem while travelling. Individual FICs for travel on Widow Passes may also be issued on the same model.
