PRINCIPLE OF TOTALIZATION
When persons have completed insurance periods under the legislation of both Parties and are ineligible for benefits by virtue of insurance periods completed solely under the legislation of one Party, the competent institution of that Party shall totalize, to the extent necessary for entitlement to benefits under the legislation that it administers, the insurance periods completed under the legislation of both Parties, but with overlapping periods counted only once.
ARTICLE 13
BENEFITS UNDER THE LEGISLATION OF QUÉBEC
1. If persons who have been subject to the legislation of both Parties meet the requirements for entitlement to benefits for themselves, their dependents, survivors, or other rightful claimants under the legislation of Québec without having recourse to the totalization principle set forth in Article 12, the competent institution of Québec shall determine the amount of benefits in accordance with the provisions of the legislation that it administers.
2. If the persons referred to in paragraph 1 do not meet the requirements for entitlement to benefits without totalization, the competent institution of Québec shall proceed as follows:
(a) it shall recognize one year of contribution if the competent institution of India certifies that an insurance period of at least 3 months in a single calendar year has been credited under the legislation of India, provided that the year in question is included in the contributory period defined under the legislation of Québec;
(b) it shall totalize, in accordance with Article 12, the years recognized under subparagraph (a) and the periods completed under the legislation of Québec.
3. When the totalization set forth in paragraph 2 entitles persons to benefits, the competent institution of Québec shall determine the amount of benefits payable by adding together the amounts calculated in accordance with subparagraphs (a) and (b) below:
(a) the amount of that portion of the benefits related to earnings shall be calculated in accordance with the provisions of the legislation of Québec;
(b) the amount of the flat rate component of the benefits payable in accordance with the provisions of this Understanding shall be determined by multiplying:

by
the fraction that represents the ratio between the periods of contribution to the Québec Pension Plan and the contributory period defined in the legislation governing that Plan.
ARTICLE 14
BENEFITS UNDER THE LEGISLATION OF INDIA
1. If persons who have been subject to the legislation of both Parties meet the requirements for entitlement to benefits for themselves, their dependents, their survivors, or other rightful claimants under the legislation of India without recourse to the totalization principle set forth in Article 12, the competent institution of India shall determine the amount of the benefits in accordance with the provisions of the legislation that it administers.
2. If the persons referred to in paragraph 1 do not qualify for benefits without totalization, the competent institution of India shall proceed as follows:
(a) it shall recognize 12 months of contribution in accordance with the legislation of India for each insurance period certified by the competent institution of Québec;
(b) if entitlement to benefits is not acquired with the application of the preceding subparagraph, it shall recognize one month of contribution under the legislation of India, when that month is considered as a month of residence within the meaning of the Old Age Security Act, which applies in the territory of Québec, provided that month does not overlap an insurance period completed under the legislation of Québec;
(c) it shall totalize, in accordance with Article 12, the insurance periods recognized under subparagraphs (a) and (b) with the insurance periods completed under the legislation of India.
3. When entitlement to benefits is acquired through the totalization principle set forth in paragraph 2, the competent institution of India determines the amount of benefits payable as follows:
(a) it shall calculate the theoretical amount of the benefit which would be paid if the totalized creditable periods accumulated under the legislation of both Parties had been accumulated under the legislation of India alone;
and
(b) on the basis of the theoretical amount calculated in accordance with subparagraph (a), it shall determine the amount of the benefit payable by applying the ratio of the duration of the creditable periods completed under the legislation of India to the total aggregate of creditable periods accumulated under the legislation of both Parties.
4. For the purposes of paragraph 3, when the right to benefits is acquired through totalization using only the insurance periods recognized under subparagraph (a) of paragraph 2, periods admissible under the Old Age Security Act that applies in the territory of Québec are not taken into account when calculating the benefit payable.
ARTICLE 15
PERIODS COMPLETED UNDER THE LEGISLATION OF A THIRD PARTY
If persons are still not entitled to benefits after the totalization prescribed in Article 13 or Article 14, the insurance periods completed under the legislation of a third party bound to both Parties by a legal social security instrument containing provisions on the totalization of insurance periods shall be taken into consideration in determining the entitlement to benefits under the terms and conditions prescribed in this Part.
