Grant of Ration Money Allowance to the Non-Gazetted personnel of Andaman & Nicobar Police, including personnel of India Reserve Battalion

The Union Cabinet today approved the following:

(i) The grant of Ration Money Allowance at the rate of Rs.1697/-per month per head to the non-gazetted personnel of A&N Police and such personnel of India Reserve Battalions (IRBn) as are posted in Andaman & Nicobar Islands with immediate effect; and

(ii) The revision of the rate of Ration Money Allowance from time to time in accordance with the same formula as is currently applicable to the non-gazetted personnel of Central para military forces.



This will fulfill a long pending demand of the non-gazetted police personnel and personnel of IRBn posted in the Union Territory and bring them at par with the personnel of Delhi Police.

As per the existing strength of non-gazetted police personnel and personnel of India Reserve Battalion posted in the UT, annual expenditure is estimated to be in order of Rs.87.8 crore

As per existing instructions, Ration Money Allowance is paid to Police personnel of A&N Police posted at Look Out Posts (LOPs) only. LOPs are situated at Chowra, Teressa, Kondul, Pillow-Millow, Tillongchang, Narcondum, East Island and Interview Island. As a result only a few A&N Police personnel get Ration Money Allowance and that too only for their tenures at LOPs. However, the present approval allows all the 4314 non-gazetted staff of Andaman & Nicobar Police and such personnel of India Reserve Battalion as are posted in A&N Islands to be extended this benefit at the rates applicable to Central Para Military Forces.
