The near white emission of $Dy^3^+$ is remarkably sensitized by $Ce^3^+$ when present together in the recently reported aluminoborates, $M_3Al_6B_8O_2_4$ $(M = Ca, Ba)$. Energy transfer from $Ce^3^+$ to $Dy^3^+$ at 300K has been examined. The multiplicity of the $Ce^3^+$ excitation band of $Ce^3^+ + Dy^3^+$ containing phosphors and its concentration dependance point to the prevalence of rare earth $(RE^3^+)$ ion pairs. More efficient energy migration to $Dy^3^+$ takes place from $Ce^3^+ - Ce^3^+$ pair than from isolated $Ce^3^+$ . The results indicate the role of borate group in the interaction between $RE^3^+$ ions.
