Observations in the J = 1–0, v = 1 and v = 2 28SiO and v = 0 29SiO maser lines were made towards 97 outer- and 19 inner-disk IRAS sources with typical IRAS colors of AGB stars. 21 new 28SiO and 1 new 29SiO maser sources were detected above the 5 σ level of ∼ 1 Jy with the Nobeyama 45 m telescope. Collecting all of the observational data in SiO J = 1–0 maser lines taken with a 45 m telescope, a comparison is made between the outer-disk, inner-disk, and bulge samples. The samples, themselves, align a sequence of mid-infrared color, flux at 12 μm and IRAS variability index. The detection rates are 66%, 51%, and 31%, respectively, in the bulge, inner disk, and outer disk. This fact is consistent with the tendency of increasing proportion of C-rich stars in the IRAS sample and metallicity gradient with the galactocentric distance.
