OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Journey to Headquarters on LTC in respect of dependent family members of  the Government servant – Clarification – reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. No. 31011/14/86-Estt.(A-1V) dated 08.05.1987, which inter alia provides that the Govt. servant and the members of the family may claim LTC independently, however, reimbursement in such cases will be restricted to the actual distance travelled by the family or the distance between the headquarters/place of posting of the Government servant and the place visited/hometown, whichever is less.

2. Restriction of reimbursement to the distance from the Headquarter/place of posting creates an anomalous situation where the Government servant seeks to avail of LTC in respect of members of the family to the Headquarters/place of posting either from the Home town of the Government servant or from anywhere else. For illustration, a dependent child of a Govt. servant (posted in Delhi) staying and pursuing studies in Mumbai may visit a Government servant at his Headquarters/place of posting (i.e. Delhi) on LTC, however, reimbursement in such case shall be admissible for distance between the Headquarters and place of visit (which in this case is Headquarters itself), which shall be NIL in this case.

3.To resolve the issue, the matter has been considered by this Department in consultation with Joint Consultative Machinery – Staff side and Department of Expenditure. It is clarified that full reimbursement as per the entitlement of the Government servant shall be allowed for journey(s) performed on LTC by the family members from any place in India to Headquarters/place of posting of the Government servant and back. When such journey is performed from the Home Town, the LTC shall be counted against ‘Home Town’ LTC and in case the journey is from any other place in India, then it shall be counted against ‘Any place in India’ LTC.

4. The provisions of this OM (para 3) will have prospective effect.

5. Hindi version will follow.

Leave Travelling Concession (LTC) and Travelling Settlement

Leave Travelling Concession (LTC) and Travelling Settlement

Free Thinker:

Leave Travelling Concession (LTC) and Travelling Settlement

My daughter asked me whether the Prime Minister or the Chief Minister can avail LTC (Leave Travelling Concession). I said, “most probably they can, they are also government employees”. She further asked whether they actually claim. I told her, “not sure whether they claim or not, but years ago I read in the newspaper that one PM was in Kerala on a vacation”. Again, not very sure whether he avail LTC or not.

The stories of travel settlements are available everywhere. Even a story of settlement claim by Hanumanji came up; the dealing assistant refused to clear Hanumanji’s file and put many objections – he is not entitled to fly; he was not supposed to bring a mountain; he did not clear the mountain till date; moreover, no travel documents are submitted; his flying included foreign land; he flew without passport and visa etc. etc. Nobody could over-rule the objections put by the dealing assistant. Hanumanji went to Ramji for help. As usual Ramji told him, ‘please don’t drag me into this'; he asked Hanumanji to go to Laxmanji. Hanumanji went to Laxmanji for his indulgence. Laxmanji called the file and overruled all the objections with the following replies: though he is not entitled to fly, he flew on emergency; as he is not a medical practitioner he could not identify the plant (medicinal) , so he brought the mountain in good faith; for clearing the mountain a different Department will look into; as far as his foreign trips are concerned he got the oral order from the highest competent authority; the file is cleared and needful must be done immediately.

It must be a fact that 99 percent of the employees avail LTC. Leave Travelling Concession is given to all the State and Central government employees. Generally, they can avail it once in two years or in other words 2 times in 4 years (which is officially called a block year). Most of the government employees enjoy this facility. First because this is an opportunity for the whole family (dependent members) of the government employee to travel together and have fun together or go to their home-town or home-village. It is not mandatory to travel together, but in most of the cases they do travel together.Some may travel by Air or some may travel by Train or by Bus according to their position/level in the government hierarchy. Even within the Air category some are entitled for the Executive or ‘J’ class and some are for the ‘Y’ or Economy class. For the Railways, the categorization is made on the basis of entitlement – AC1, AC2, AC3, First class, Sleeper, etc. Even for the buses there are hierarchical categories – First class, Deluxe, Non-Deluxe, Ordinary etc.

One retired Babu who was dealing with the settlement of Travel expenses and LTC claims narrated a story of group LTC fabrication. Many families of government employees used to go to Vrindavan along with their family availing LTC. There were many tour operators for Vrindavan. Actually, they were the bus owners who conducted group trips to Vrindavan. One trip is for about 20 days. Many government employees went to Vrindavan on LTC through these tour operators. Objections were put; they must have traveled by government transport; it is a packaged trip (fare part unclear); no prior approval was taken to travel by private buses (tour operators) etc. These objections were cleared by the higher authority saying that the fare part of the claim may be segregated and settle the claims.( Travel by private buses allowed ).

Then a roaring business had started; for instance, “Trip to Vrindavan and nearby places on LTC” by such and such Tour Operator. Many did not go but started claiming LTC for their entire family, submitting bogus bus tickets from these private tours and travels. It became a rampant nuisance and almost had turned into a scandal. One internal enquiry was set up to look into such doubtful claims.

The proprietor of the concerned tour operator was summoned to examine the tickets allegedly issued by his firm; whether they actually issued those tickets. He saw the tickets and said “these are fake”. Then the claimants were called to defend themselves. They went to the highest authority to save their jobs. Then the competent authority issued an order saying that for the unreliable tickets other credible evidences of their respective travels must be submitted. Consequently, the hell loose large; some brought Jamuna water in a bottle, some brought Bal Gopal figurines, Radha-Krishna pictures, some brought photographs (studio made) clicked in Vrindavan & Mathura; some brought Vrindavan chandan, Vrindavan stone, Vrindavan chaadar etc. After examining these credible evidences the settlements were allowed. These evidences are still kept for future reference and ‘precedence’. These days LTC/travel claims are easily verified on the click of a mouse as a result of massive computerization and 24-hour internet. So be careful while settling your bogus claims and fake bills.

Married Women Employees can show their parents as her dependents for CGHS, LTC etc

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF PERSONNEL,PUBLIC GRIEVANCES AND PENSIONS
RAJYA SABHA

QUESTION NO 3280

ANSWERED ON 30.03.2017

Making service rules gender neutral

3280 Shri Narayan Lal Panchariya

Will the Minister of PERSONNEL,PUBLIC GRIEVANCES AND PENSIONS be pleased to state :-

(a) whether, a married woman employee can show her own parents as her dependents under the service rules applicable to Central Government employees;

(b) if so, under what conditions;

(c) if not, the rationale therefor;

(d) whether Government has taken any action to make the aforesaid service rules gender neutral both in letter and spirit; and

(e) if so, the details thereof and if not, the reasons therefor?

ANSWER

Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office. (DR. JITENDRA SINGH)

(a) to (e): The service rules of the Government employees have been framed keeping in view their contextual purpose and with a view to make them gender neutral.

As per Rule 50 of Central Civil Services (CCS)(Pension) Rules, 1972, father and mother of a Government employee (which includes a female Government employee) come within the definition of family. For the purpose of gratuity, there is no condition of dependency or inclusion in family.

In respect of General Provident Fund (GPF) Rule, female employees can nominate their parents for the benefits of GPF. There is no dependency criterion for nominating parents for the benefits of GPF.

Under Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) Rules, married women employees have the option either to opt their dependent parents or dependent parents-in-law for CGHS facilities.

As per All India Services (AIS) {Medical Attendance (MA) Rules}, ‘family’ definition includes the name of parents wholly dependent upon the member of service and normally residing with such member.

As per CCS {Leave Travel Concession (LTC)} Rules, ‘family’ definition includes parents or step parents wholly dependent on the Government servant irrespective of whether they are residing with the Government servant or not.

As per CCS(Conduct Rules), “Members of family” in relation to a Government servant include the wife or husband, son or daughter, parents, brothers or sisters or any person related to any of them by blood or marriage, whether they are dependent on the Government servant or not.

As per AIS (Conduct) Rules, any person related, whether by blood or marriage, to such member or to his or her wife or husband, as the case may be, and wholly dependent on such member is treated as member of family.

Sub: Grant of one time relaxation to the Central Government Employees who have availed LTC-80 and travelled by air by purchasing Ticket from other than authorized agents.

Ref:- Decision taken in the New Agenda No.III of the Standing Committee meeting of the National Council (JCM) held on 25.10.2016

Dear Sir,
In the Standing Committee meeting of the National Council (JCM) held under your chairmanship on 25.10.2016 the Staff Side informed that many non entitled Central government Employees had availed themselves the benefit of LTC-80 and purchased ticket from unauthorized agents, unaware of the rule position. Subsequently audit had returned the LTC final claims without sanctioning them and advised the administrative divisions of the Ministries concerned to recover the entire LTC advance from their salary. The staff Side also informed that Ministry of Defence, with the approval of Hon’ble Defence Minister had forwarded a proposal the DOPT seeking one time relaxation in such cases. The Secretary (P) informed in the meeting that the entire issue is under consideration of the DOPT.

To our shock and surprise the Ministry of Defence vide their ID Note dated 3.2.2017 has issue a letter to the lower formations (copy enclosed) stating that the DOPT has not agreed for granting bulk relaxation to thousands of Group B and Group C Defence Civilian Employees. Further DOPT has advised Ministry of Defence that the proposal for granting relaxation for booking of tickets through private travel agents may be scrutinized individually and has given certain guidelines which is practically difficult to adopt at this stage, since many such employees are due to retire from service shortly. It will be difficult for the administration to cross verify all those claims since the number of affected employees are more than 5000. In this situation we suggest the following for your kind consideration.

“In the case of those employees who have purchase air tickets from other than authorized agents and have actually travelled and submitted the tickets along with boarding pass, in such cases the administration may find out the actual LTC-80 fare from the concerned Airlines on that particular date when the concerned employee actually traveled and the claim may be restricted to the same and the balance amount if any calimed the same may be recovered from the concerned employee”.

The above proposal if accepted will reduce lot of administrative work and also will relieve the concerned employees from financial and mental hardship, thereby setting and outstanding issue once for all. In case of any further clarification required the Staff Side may please be invited for a discussion on the subject. Awaiting for your favorable response please.

 

Yours faithfully,

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
Secretary

Grant of one-time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointments in the Ministry of Defence – BPMS

Grant of one-time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointments in the Ministry of Defence – BPMS

Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh delegation meets Dr Jitendra Singh

A delegation of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh’s Industrial Unit, “Bharatiya Pratiraksha Mazdoor Sangh”, held a meeting with Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh here today and sought his intervention for grant of one-time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointments in the Ministry of Defence. The delegation also requested the Minister to issue directions to expedite the follow-up pertaining to LTC cases pending in the DoPT.

The members of the delegation sought to draw Dr Jitendra Singh’s attention to an earlier meeting with him wherein they had brought to his notice that there is 5.85 lakh sanctioned strength of Defence Civilians, but the existing strength is only 3.98 lakh as mentioned in the report of 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC). Thus, there is a deficiency of 1.87 lakh civilian manpower and there are about 20,000 aspirants who are seeking appointment on compassionate grounds. The members of the delegation recalled that Dr Jitendra Singh had given a positive response to them and subsequently also written to the Defence Minister to take cognizance of the issue.

As per an OM of the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT), there is a provision to give compassionate appointment to one of the dependants for the survival of the family in case the employee unfortunately dies during the service period leaving the family behind. But the provision for such appointment is limited to 5% of the vacancies, as a result of which, according to the members of delegation, a large number of wards are kept waiting for appointment on compassionate ground because of the ceiling.

The delegation referred to an earlier letter written by Dr Jitendra Singh to the Minister of Defence, Shri Manohar Parrikar wherein the former had requested for intervention by the Defence Ministry so that the DoPT could accordingly proceed in the matter. They requested Dr Jitendra Singh to take up the issue once again with the Ministry of Defence so that their demand could be addressed. Dr Jitendra Singh assured the members of delegation that he would again seek the views of the Minister of Defence and try to work out whatever feasible.

Guidelines and instructions in the case of Husband and Wife both working for Central Government

Guidelines and instructions in the case of Husband and Wife both working for Central Government

What are all the regulations, Guidelines and instructions in the case of Husband and Wife both working for Central Government in the situations such as applying for House Building Advance, Medical Attendance Rules, Children Education Allowance, Leave Travel Concession Etc ?

How a married couple is treated in various Central Government service matters when both Husband and Wife are serving in Central Government?

The need to have a clarity on this subject gains much significance because treatment of them could differ in each law as each one would treat them according to the intention of the particular law.

For example, both are entitled to draw HRA even if they work in the same station, and live together but not provided with Government accommodation.

But when comes to Allotment of Quarters maintained by Government, only one residence will be provided to them except in the case of Judicial separation.

This article is a compilation of regulations in various service matters in respect of Husband and Wife when both are Central Government Employees.

HBA can be claimed by either of them. As per Rule 2 of HBA Rules, for the purpose of eligibility based on cost-ceiling of the house to be constructed, pay of both of them can be taken in to account. However, for the purpose of calculating the maximum amount of advance eligible under HBA, only the pay of the employee who prefers to avail HBA can be taken in to account.

Medical Attendance Rules

In non-CGHS areas, central government employees are covered by CS(MA) Rules which provide reimbursement of medical expenses incurred by the Central Government Employees. In the case of Both husband and wife working central government, to avoid double claim for same medical expenses, either Husband or Wife is permitted to make claims for self and entire family. The person who prefers to make claims under Medical Attendance Rules should be clearly mentioned in the joint declaration given by Both Husband and Wife in this regard. In the event of promotion, transfer, retirement, etc this declaration can be revised at any time. In the case of wife prefers to avail this concession for the entire family, she can either choose her parents or parents-in-law as dependents and prefer medical claim for them.

Children Education Allowance

As far as reimbursement of payment of tuition fees and hostel fees are concerned, either Husband or Wife can avail the benefit.
Family Planning Allowance

Either Husband or Wife may prefer to receive Family Planning Allowance. Since FPA is based on pay in pay band and grade pay, it will be beneficial if the employee drawing higher pay prefers to receive the same. In that case, there is no condition specified with regard to the employee who undergone family planning.

Leave Travel Concession

Husband

Wife

  1. His wife,
  2. His two surviving unmarried children or step children wholly dependent on him,
  3. His parents and/or step mother wholly dependent on him, whether or not residing with him and
  4. His unmarried minor brothers as well as unmarried, divorced, abandoned, separated from their husbands or widowed sisters residing with and wholly dependent him, provided their parents are either not alive or are themselves wholly dependent on him
  1. Her wife,
  2. Her two surviving unmarried children or step children wholly dependent on her,
  3. Her parents and/or step mother wholly dependent on her, whether or not residing with her and
  4. Her unmarried minor brothers as well as unmarried, divorced, abandoned, separated from their husbands or widowed sisters residing with and wholly dependent her, provided their parents are either not alive or are themselves wholly dependent on her

The above mentioned provision relating to family members can be separately declared and LTC for those members can be separately claimed by both Husband and Wife, subject to conditions that children will be eligible for the benefit in one particular block as members of the family of one of the parents only and that if husband or wife avails the facility as a member of the family of the other, he or she is not entitled for claiming the concession for self independently.

Travelling Allowance

Travelling Allowance allowed in the event of transfer of one or both of them simultaneously one of the spouses can prefer the claim and the other will be treated as member of family. In such situations only one lumpsum grant can be claimed.

If a husband or wife is transfered after 60 days of transfer of the spouse, but within 6 months, 50% of transfer grant is admissible. However, if both are entitled for reimbursement of cost of travel by personal car, if required they can travel seperatey and claim both of such travel expenses.

Family Pension

Either Husband or Wife is entitled for family pension in addition to own pay or pension, if the spouse dies.

In the case of demise of such husband /wife also, who was receiving family pension for the demise of his/her spouse, the child / children of the deceased parents should be granted two family pensions subject to certain limits prescribed.

ALLOWANCES-NFPE

POSTAL JOINT COUNCIL OF ACTION
NATIONAL FEDERATION OF POSTAL EMPLOYEES
FEDERATION OF NATIONAL POSTAL ORGANISATIONS

PF-No.PF-PJCA/20

Dated: 16th September, 2016

To
The Secretary,
Department of Post,
Sansad Marg,
Dak Bhawan,
New Delhi-110 001

NOTE ON ALLOWANCES

1. The recommendation of the 7th CPC that Tough Location Allowance will not be admissible alongiwth Special Duty Allowance (SDA) should not be accepted by Government.

In para 8.10.62 of the 7th CPC the following recommendation is made

Para 8.10.62  There are some Special Compensatory Allowances that are based on geographical location and are meant to compensate for hardship faced by employees posted in such places. It is proposed to subsume these allowances under the umbrella of Tough Location Allowance.

In Para 8.10.63 the Commission made the following recommendations
The Tough Location Allowance will, however, not be admissible along with Special Duty Allowance.

At present, special allowances are paid in the following places along with Special Duty Allowance.

(a) Assam and North Easter Region : Special Compensatory allowance paid alongwith Special Duty Allowance.
(b) Andaman & Nicobar Islands : Special Compensatory Allowance paid alongwith Island Special Duty Allowance.
(c) Tripura Special Compensatory Remote Locality Allowance paid along with Special Duty Allowance.

Demand of the staff side: In all the above cases Tough Location Allowance may be paid alongwith Special Duty Allowance. Withdrawal of any of the above allowances, will result in substantial financial loss to the employees. An existing benefit should not be withdrawn, under the pretext of 7th CPC’s unjustified recommendation.

2. Special Duty Allowance in N. E. Region should be uniform for all at 30%.

In Para 8.17.115 the 7th CPC made the following observation

Special Duty Allowance (SDA) is granted to attract civilian employees to seek posting in North Eastern and Ladhak Regions, in view of the risk and hardship prevailing in these areas. Currently the rate of SDA is 37.5% of Basic Pay for AIS officers and 12.5% of Basic Pay for other employees.

In para 8.17.118 the Commission made the following recommendation
Accordingly in line with our general approach of rationalizing the percentage based allowance by a factor of 0.8, SDA for AIS officers should be paid at the rate of 30% of Basic Pay and for other civilian employees at the rate of 10% of their basic pay.

Demand of the staff side: The discrimination between AIS officers and other civilian employees in payment of SDA should not be there and all may be paid at the same rate i.e. at the rate of 30% recommended by the pay commission for AIS officers.

3. Allowances which are not reported to 7thCPC by the concerned departments.

In para 8.2.5 of the report, the 7th CPC made the following recommendation.
We have considered all allowances reported to us, in this chapter. Any allowances, not mentioned here (And hence not reported to the commission) shall cease to exist immediately. In case there is any demand or requirement for continuation of an existing allowance which has not been deliberated upon or covered in this report, it should be re-notified by the ministry concerned after obtaining due approval of Ministry of Finance and should be put in the public domain.

Demand of the Staff Side: The above recommendation should not be accepted, as it amounts to penalizing employees for the fault of the departmental heads. The following allowance which are not reported to the commission should be retained and enhanced.

(a) PO & RMS Accountants’ Special allowance
Postal Assistants and Sorting Assistants of Postal department are posted as PO & RMS Accountant after passing a qualifying examination. Taking into consideration their work which require much skill, application of mind, and knowledge of all rulings, Special allowance is granted to them. This allowance may beretained and enhanced.

4. Savings Bank Allowance in Post offices:

In Department of Posts, Savings Bank Allowance is granted to Postal Assistant working in Post Office Savings Bank (POSB) for shouldering strenuous and complicated nature of Savings Bank work. Postal Assistants need to qualify an aptitude test to get this allowance. The current rates are Rs.300/- per month for fully engaged staff and Rs.150/- per month for partially engaged staff.

In para 8.10.80 of the report, the Commission recommended as follows:
Savings Bank Allowance be abolished as the justification provided by the concerned ministry for the grant of this allowance is not sufficient for their continuance.

Demand of staff side: Savings Bank Allowance should be retained and enhanced in view of the justification given above.

5. Special Compensatory (Hill area) Allowance

In para 8.10.50 of the report, the 7th CPC made the following recommendation
There is hardly any hardship involved at altitude of 1000 meters (more than 3000 feets) above sea level. Hence, it is recommended that the allowance should be abolished.

Demand of the staff side: The above observation of the commission is not based on ground realities but based on presumption. Hence the above allowance should be retained and enhanced.

6. Family Planning Allowance

In para 8.17.50 of the report, the 7th CPC made the following recommendations
The commission recognizes the fact that most of the benefit 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 Government servants. Hence, a separate allowance aimed towards population control is not required. Accordingly, it is recommended that family planning allowance should be abolished.

Demand of the staff side: The above allowance may be retained. In any case, the Family Planning Allowance already granted should not be withdrawn.

7. Fixed Medical Allowance

In Para 8.17.51 of the report the 7th CPC observed as follows

It is granted to pensioners for meeting expenditure on day to day medical expenses that do not require hospitalization, presently payable at the rate of Rs.500/- p.m. Demands have been received to increase the rate of this allowance to Rs.2000/-.

In para 8.17.52 the Commission made the following recommendation-
The Commission notes that the allowance was enhanced from Rs.300/- to Rs.500/- p.m from 19.11.2014. As such, further enhancement of this allowance is not recommended.

Demand of the staff side: in the memorandum submitted to 7th CPC, the staff side had elaborately explained the justification for enhancing the FMA to Rs.2000/-. As everybody knows, old age persons are suffering from many deceases and as the cost of medicines has increased manifold the expenditure on outdoor medical treatment has also gone up like anything. With Rs.500/- p.m no pensioner can meet the medical expenses. The commission has not conducted any scientific and realistic study, but simply rejected the demand stating that it is enhanced recently. It is once again requested that the FMA for pensioners may be enhanced to Rs.2000/- p.m as in the case of EPF pensioners.

8. Cash handling Allowance

In para 8.10.9 of the report, the 7th CPC observed as follows: 

It is paid to cashiers working in Central Government departments, for handling of cash. The current rates are:

Average amount of monthly cash disbursed Rate per month
Below Rs. 50000 230
Over Rs. 50000 upto 200000 450
Over 200000 upto 500000 600
Over 500000 upto 1000000 750
Above 1000000 900

Again in Para 8.10.57 the commission observed as follows:

Treasury Allowance : This allowance is granted in Department of Posts to Treasurers and Assistant Treasurers working in Head Post offices and large Sub Post offices for handling cash. The present rate is Rs.360/- p.m for handling cash upto Rs.2 lakhs and Rs.480/- p.m. for handling cash more than Rs.2 lakhs.

In para 8.10.80 the commission made the following recommendation
Assistant cashier Allowance, Cash handling allowance and Treasury Allowance
With technological advances and growing emphasis on banking, these allowances have lost their relevance. Hence it is recommended that not only all salary be paid through banks, but Ministries/departments should work out plans to first minimize and then eliminate all sorts of cash transactions.

Demand of the staff Side: The recommendation of the Commission is not realistic. Till that time the cash transactions are eliminated the Cash handling allowance and Treasury allowance should be retained and enhanced.

9. Cycle Allowance

In para 8.15.10 of the report the 7th CPC made the following observation.
It is paid where the duties attached to the post require extensive use of bicycle and the official concerned has to use and maintain his own cycle for official journeys. The existing rate is Rs.90 p.m.

In para 15.11 the commission made the following recommendation:
The Commission is of the view that amount of this allowance is megre and the allowance itself is outdated. Hence it should be abolished.

Demand of the staff side: This allowance is at present given to more than 40000 Postmen staff and about 50000 GraminDakSevaks of the Postal Department. When the commission itself observed that an official using his own bicycle for official duties has to incur expenditure for maintenance of the cycle. When the maintenance work is done for performing official duties, the amount should be reimbursed to the official, whether the amount is megre or not. Hence this allowance should be retained and enhanced.

10. Overtime Allowance

In para 8.17.97 of the report the 7th CPC made the following recommendations :

Hence while this commission shares the sentiments of the predecessors that Government offices need to increase productivity and efficiency and recommended that OTA should be abolished (except for operational staff and industrial employees who are governed by statutory provisions) at the same time it is also recommended that in case the Government decides to continue with OTA for these categories of staff for which it is not statutory requirement, then the rate of OTA for such staff should be increased by 50% from their current levels.

Demand of the staff side: OTA rates are revised in the year 1987. For the last 30 years no revision has taken place. Eventhough an arbitration award for enhancement is given, the same is also pending implementation for the last 20 years. After 7th CPC revision, one hour wage of an MTS is Rs. 75/- where as rate for one hour OTA is Rs.15.85 only!!! Hence it is requested that overtime allowance wherever sanctioned must be based upon the actual basic pay of the entitled employee.

11. Dress Allowance

(a) Para 08.16.14 may be referred. The 7th CPC recommended four slabs of Dress allowance per year for various categories of employees. In the Department of Posts there are about 75000 Postmen and Multi-Tasking staff wearing uniform. Their name is not mentioned in the category of employees shown in the table. Even if it is included in the other categories of staff, then the Dress Allowance per year will be Rs.5000/- only. At present the Postmen/MTS staff of Postal department are getting more than Rs.5000/- for uniform plus washing allowance. Hence it should be made clear under which category the Postmen and MTS staff of Postal department are to be included, in the dress allowance table recommended by the 7th CPC. These official may be granted Rs.10000/- as dress allowance.

(b) It is further demanded that the Dress Allowance ceiling to be raised to Rs.32400 per annum.

(c) If cloth for dress is provided stitching charges should be revised reasonably.

(d) Washing allowance should be increased from Rs.90/- to 150/- Rupees per month.

Yours faithfully
