  1. 7 the pay commission has opined that awareness regarding small family among govt employees is not required now. That means it was required earlier. Then why it is discontinued even to those employees who did the medical operation much earlier as per allowance declared by Government at that time. 7 th pay commission is not clear in mind in it’ s observations & recommendations.

  2. v.s.sampath I.D.S.E.retired Qs&C

    There is no bar to consider the increments earned for family planning incentives for notional pay as on 31 Dec 2005

  3. Increment for family planning to pre2006 pensioners. Should be considered for notional pay – pension fixation.

  4. Whether Family Planning Allowance is admissible if applied for FPA on june 2017 or before June 2017?
