    The Children Education Allowance has been increased from 1500 PM to 2250 PM by the Government as proposed by the 7th CPC. However, the same has been approved by the Cabinet in the month of June, 2016. When the same has to be retained at the proposed rates, why the delay in this regard has been made and further why the same has been taken under consideration for revision.
    Now the same has been effective from July, 2017, means the same has been paid at revised rates for the fee paid for the month of July, 2017. It clearly means that the employees has to suffer another loss of 750 PM in CEA for the period from 01.01.2016 to 30.06.2017, i.e. for 18 month comes at Rs. 13500/-.
    Another big loss to employees due to some ……………?????????
