Sub: Grant of ‘Additional Post Allowance’- clarification reg.
One of the Zonal Railways has sought clarification from this Ministry whether Additional Post Allowance is admissible to an officer for leave (LAP/LHAP/CL) taken during the looking after arrangement.

In this regard, attention is invited to instructions contained in Board’s letter No.F(E)Sp1.98/FR/1/1 dated 11.09.2000 which provide that if a Govt. officer is formally appointed to hold full charge of another post in addition to his normal duty under FR 49 leave availed by that officer during the period of holding full charge of another post will be taken into account for counting the period of dual charge arrangement.
3. These instructions are reiterated for information and compliance.
