    Whether it is correct or wrong please confirm. Iam awaiting for your kind reply.

  2. Sir, have u made any notification regarding increase in Remote Locality Allowance or it had to be paid to the concerned employees without notification

    Is TA & DA Has been revised as the DA increased by 51% from Jan. 2011

    sir,
    I was defenitely surprised by the way the Govt. depts. are behaving regarding the allowances as mentioned above. It is very clear from the clarifications issued by the DOPT what were needed really to clarify when DA crossed 50%.But many departments are willfully want further clarification to standing orders regarding increase of other allowances as issued in 2008 by the DOPT after 6th CPC.Is it not harassesment to the workers by depriving the genuine admissible amount ,by asking for further clarification which is not necessary when it was mentioned that allowances will increase automatically.Further the denial of such increase will in most of the offices result in loss of money in arrear,for example most of us in our AG(Audit) ASSAM did not get 15000 as children education allowance reimbursement even after enhencement when it was drawn as 12000 previously.

  5. Whenever DA % is increased 50%, HCA, Cashier allowance, Washing Allowance, Composite Transfer Grant,CEA, all non-interest bearing advances will get increased by 25%. Except CEA, no order has been issued so far by DOPT.

  6. what about nursing allowance, washing allowance,ta,medical allowance ,pensiones’ medical allowance

  7. Is there any provision of Arrear of Children Education Allowance at the increased rates for the period from 1-1-2011 to 31-3-2011 as reimbursement of CEA was earlier made @Rs.12000/- p.a. now it is @Rs.15,000/- p.a.

  8. An increase of 25% has been made Children Education Allowance w.e.f. 1-1-2011. I just want to know whether these increased rates will be apply for the period from 1-1-2011 to 31-3-2011 during the Session year 2010-2011 or not. Reimbursement of CEA @Rs.12000/- p.a. have already been made in March 2011.

  9. Sir, CPMF personnel are deployed at highly sensitive areas of the country for which some where drawing hardship/risk allowance and some where drawing dett allowance. Request clarify whether 25 % increase is applicable for risk allowance and dett allowance.

  10. Whether Govt. has issued an order for 30% HRA for Pune City? What is classification of cities according to census 2011?
