Agenda Items for NAC Meeting : Date of Effect of Allowances – HRA, Transport Allowance, CEA etc.
Item No 11 : Date of Effect of Allowances – HRA, Transport Allowance, CEA etc.
The 7 CPC states that its recommendations once accepted must take effect from 1.1.2016. The Govt accepted this recommendation and made it effective from 1.1.2016 only for Pay where as allowances were made effective with effect from 1.7.2017. Salary package contains pay and allowances and cannot be bifurcated and treated separately. This issue had been the subject matter of the proceedings before the Board of Arbitration.
The award of the Board of Arbitration in CA No. 8/1986 dated 4.1.1989 was accepted and implemented where as the award on the second occasion in CA No 2/2002 dated 15.4.2004 being the same has not yet been acted upon. The staff side demands that the grant of above stated allowances must be from 1.1.2016 as in the case of Pay.
