By any chance can I get a relaxation of 2 months for my wife's ag ?(consiering the importance of this opertion and less significance to spouse age factor )

I have availed HBA and repayment of principal amount is over and now they are dedecting interest. I have been receiving Personal pay for following small family norms. Now I want to get concession 0.5% rebate on HBA interest and hence applied for the same.But the same has been turneddown by the autthorities stating that sanction for 0.5% rebate should have been obtained at tha time of drawing HBA. Further, their contention is since I have alredy repaid the principal amount and paying interest now it is not possible to give concession now. Actualy I was unaware of the procedure and hence not applied for concession when HBA was sanctioned. Can any one help me to resolve this issue. I feel they can recaulculate the intersest and accrdingly 0.5% rebate can be given. Pl.advice me.

Why Family Planning Allowance is given acc. to Grade Pay. It's a common procedure for all employees.
Everyone have the same pain and facing same problems. My suggestion is that FPA must be same for all. We all are human beings and Group "A" officers have not the special pains so they have not the right to get the highest amount for the same.It must be rectify in the 7th CPC.

I think the amount of FPA must be increased and it must be applied to all private organizations also so that Family Planning schemes get promoted and overall the whole country will come out the problem of increasing population.The central govt. must take care on this important issue also.
