Ths ruling borders on the absurd. Imagine a person moving from Ambala to Alleypey in Kerela. Since he moves from one Z station to another his entitlement will be substantially lower than somebody who moves from Ambala to Mumbai. How does one explain that

The Cook said...

You can file a supplementary claim, attaching a copy of this order. You can get the balance amount credited.

amit said...

@avicat the uling is as per the starting stn with no relation as to the destination so there won't be any diff whether you go to mumbai or allepey, all that matters is from where u start

Now what can I do? Any one suggest me.

As per GOI order No.(1) under SR 116, there were already higher rates of transportation charges @ 30/- , 15/- etc for A-1/A/B-1 cities with clear cut specification that the higher rate is admissible only for carriage of PE from one place to another within the limit of such A-1/A/B-1 cities. Now, when GOI issued order on 23.09.08, this higher rate was not prescribed there,and therefore vide order dated 8.6.10, by indicating that "the issue of OM dated 23.09.08 has led to lowering of per km rates of tpt. of PE by road on transfer in the case of A-1/A/B-1 cities " , has added higher rates for higher cities i.e. X & Y cities. So what should be the correct procedure ? Is it not the correct procedure in the case of a transfer from X/Y city to another X/Y city, to allow higher rates only for that city limits and then lower rates for the remaining/ intervening distances ? Otherwise, how can one define correct rates for a transfer from X/Y city to Z city and vice versa ?The GOI order under SR 116 may be referred and compared with the latest OM.

An employee transferred from Z-class city to X/Y class is entitled for Rs.30/Km or Rs.18/Km ??
