Dated: Approved Date
Sub: Admissibility of daily allowance in case of free boarding and lodging.
A reference is invited to the Department of Expenditure, E.IV, Office Memorandum No. 19030/1/2017-E-IV dated 01.02.2018 which inter alia states that “… In case of free boarding and lodging, the govt employee, if incurring any expenditure on local travel, can claim the same as per para 2 E (i) and (ili) of the Annexure to O.M. of even No. dated 13.07.2017. The earlier system of giving 25 % DA is being discontinued. Also, after implementation of 7th CPC recommendations, the facility of DA at 5th CPC rates is done away with.“
Now, it has been decided with the approval of the Competent Authority to adopt the DoE Instructions contained in their OM dated 01.02.2018, regarding discontinuation of admissibility of Daily Allowance in case of free boarding and lodging. The revised circular will be applicable from the date of issue of the circular and the adoption of the same would not mean revision of the existing rate of allowances. Cases already decided shall not be reopened.
