Grade Pay Family Planning Allowance >10,000 1000 8.17.49 There are demands to make it equal to one increment. Representations have also been received requesting that the allowance should be double for those employees who adopt family planning norms after just one child.

Analysis and Recommendations

8.17.50 The Commission recognizes the fact that most of the benefits related to children, viz., Children Education Allowance, Maternity Leave, LTC, etc., are available for two children only. Moreover the level of awareness regarding appropriate family size has also gone up among the government servants. Hence, a separate allowance aimed towards population control is not required now. Accordingly, it is recommended that Family Planning Allowance should be abolished.

    STOPPING THE FAMILY PLANNING ALLOWANCE ALLOWANCE IS VERY SHAMEFUL AND INJUSTICE TO THOSE EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE ALREADY CONTRIBUTED TO FAMILY PLANNING FOR THE NATION, AS IT WAS COMMITTED BY THE GOVERNMENT TO GIVE THE FAMILY PLANNING ALLOWANCE THROUGH THE ENTIRE SERVICE PERIOD

  2. Now it has been stopped by 7th CPC. You will not get it more whether you were drawing or not.

  3. What about people who are already drawing family planning allowance. Please clarify.
