Benevolent fund scheme

These details are only indicative, and the exact wording and terms will be as per the certificate document issued by ALPA India. The following is given for a broad understanding of the members.

The scheme is open to members of ALPA India only and completely voluntary. It is independent of the number of insurance policies held. The scheme is open to Indian national pilots irrespective of the airlines they work for. The fund is managed by the Professional Aviators Trust, with two members of ALPA India being on the board.

By signing the scheme, a member agrees to abide by the rules and regulations of the benevolent fund scheme, amended from time to time


fund claims


  • All claims, complete in all respects, would be processed in 45 days from the date of submission of a claim to the ALPA India office subject to Medical panel and committee clearances. Compensation paid would be in one instalment in 14 days for a member claiming in the 1st year, two equal monthly instalments for the member claiming in the 2nd year, and three equal monthly instalments for a claimant in the 3rd year onwards.
  • In addition, the claim form must be signed by two members in good standing with ALPA India.
  • In case any fraudulent attempt to claim or certify a claim is made, ALPA India would immediately initiate termination of membership and reserves the right to proceed with criminal/civil legal action against the claimant/certifier.
  • In case of any issues with the completion of forms, the office will be at your service to enable the process. Tax liability, if any, will be borne by the scheme and not the pilot.
