  1. (a) The annual allowance or gratuity awarded under head A and the minimum annual allowance awarded under head B shall be calculated on the proportion of salary prescribed by Subsection (1) of Section 1 of the Superannuation Act, 1909, instead of the proportion prescribed by Section 2 of the Superannuation Act, 1859, and the annual allowance which may be awarded shall not in any case exceed one-half of the salary on which the allowance is calculated:
