Letter to Secretary (Posts) i/c/w enhancement in the rates of various allowances by 25% consequent upon Dearness Allowance crossing 100%.

No. GS/AIAIASP/Misc/Inquiry/2014                          dated  :     28/3/2014.

Ms. P. Gopinath,
Secretary (Posts)
Dak Bhavan, Sansad Marg,
New Delhi 110 001.

Sub:  Enhancement in the rates of various allowances by 25%   consequent upon Dearness Allowance crossing 100%.

Ref. : Directorate file No. 5-06/2011-PAP dated 24th January, 2012

Respected Madam,

          The VI CPC in their report had recommended that certain allowances, viz. Children Education Allowance, National Holiday Allowance, Daily Allowance, Washing Allowance, Breakdown Allowance, Special Compensatory Allowance, Cycle Maintenance Allowance, Fixed Conveyance Allowance, Road Mileage Allowance, Special Allowance to various categories of staff etc., should be increased by 25% whenever Dearness Allowance crosses 50%, and this recommendation was duly accepted by the Government of India.

          Based on the above recommendation of the VI CPC, these allowances have since been enhanced by 25% w. e. f. 01.01.2011, i.e. from the date, Dearness Allowance having been crossed 50%.

           Now, as per the
MoF OM No. 1/1/2014-EB-II (B) dated 27th March 2014 Dearness Allowance has enhanced from existing rate of 90% to 100% w. e. f. 01.01.2014, there is, therefore, gross justification that the above allowances be further enhanced by additional 25%, as Dearness Allowance has again crossed the value of 50% after enhancement of these allowances w.e.f.01.01.2011.

          It is therefore requested to kindly issue necessary instructions to this effect at the earliest. 

    With regards, 

Yours faithfully,

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
