DA on Transport Allowance at Pre-revised Rates - Clarification from DoE

"Clarification regarding admissibility of DA on Transport Allowance at pre-revised rates from 01.07.2016 (@132%) and from 01.01.2017 @ 136%"
21/5/2017-E-II(B) Pt.

Department of Expenditure E.II(B) Section

Reference PUC I to III, (p.1/NLF of DOT, p2.3/cor.,p.u.6/cor.)

References have been received from Department of Telecom, D/o Revenue and Central Secretariat (Promotee Assistants) Association seeking clarification regarding admissibility of DA on Transport Allowance at pre-revised rates from 01.07.2016 (@132%) and from 01.01.2017 @ 136%

2. As per recommendations of 7th CPC, rates of Transport Allowance had been revised w.e.f. 01.07.2017. Details of rates during 6th CPC and as prescribed by 7th CPC are given below:

Employees drawing pay in Pay Level
Rates of Transport Allowance per month as per the recommendation of 7th CPC
Rates of Transport Allowance per month as per the recommendation of 6th CPC
Employees posted in the Cities as per Annexure-I
Employees posted at other Places
Employees posted in the Cities as per Annexure-I
Employees posted at Other Places
9 and above
Rs.7200 + DA thereon
Rs.3600 + DA thereon
Rs. 3200/- + DA thereon
Rs. 1600/- + DA thereon
3 to 8 and those drawing Pay of Rs.24200/- and above in Level 1 & 2 of the Pay Matrix
Rs. 3600 + DA thereon
Rs. 1800 + DA thereon
Rs. 1600/- + DA thereon
Rs. 800/- + DA thereon
1 and 2
Rs. 1350 + DA thereon
Rs. 900 + DA thereon
Rs. 600/- + DA thereon
Rs. 400/- + DA thereon

3. It may be seen from the above table that rates of Transport Allowance as recommended by 7th CPC are inclusive of DA @ 125% as on 01.01.2016.

4. It is clearly mentioned in the Resolution dated 25.07.2016 that 'till a final decision on Allowances is taken based on the recommendations of this Committee, all Allowances will continue to be paid at existing rates in existing pay strucutre, as if the pay had not been revised with effect from 1st day of January, 2016." Therefore, between 01.01.2016 and 30.06.2017, no DA had been allowed on any Allowance.

5. In case, if the enhanced rate of DA i.e. 132% w.e.f. 0.07.2016 & 136% w.e.f. 01.01.2017 given for pre-revised pay scale of 6th CPC, is allowed on Transport Allowance rates as per 6th CPC, it would exceed the rates of Transport Allowance as recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission which is not permissible. Therefore, we may clarify to D/o Telecommunication, D/o Revenue and Central Secretariat Association (Promottee Assistants) that enhanced rate of DA on 6th CPC rates of Transport Allowance from 01.07.2016 to 30.06.2017, is not admissible. Kindly see for consideration.

7th CPC Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – NFIR

Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprival of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2

No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp) / Allowance/2016/Part I

Dated: 08/06/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi
Dear Sir,

Sub: Government’s decision on recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission – Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprival of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2 – reg.

Ref: (i) Railways Board’s letter No. PC-V/2017/A/TA/1 dated 17/08/2017 (RBE No. 96/2017)
(ii) NFIR’s Letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC/Allowance/2016/ Part I dated 28/08/2017.
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-V/2015/PNM/NFIR/4 dated 17/20-11-2017.
(iv) NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/ Allowance/2016/Part I dated 05/04/2018.

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to the references cited above.

NFIR reiterates that pursuant to issuance of instructions dated 17/08/2017, situation has arisent wherein the Railway employees in Pay Level 3, drawing pay Rs. 21,700/- and above and also upto Pay Level 8 hitherto entitled for Transport Allowance @ Rs. 3600 + DA thereon (in A1/A class cities and in other cities @ Rs 1800 + DA thereon) have been deprived of the said rate (due to the new norm for entitlement)

In this context, Federation furnishes below the rates granted pursuant to acceptance of the recommendations of the 5th CPC and 6th CPC:-

(a) Recommendations of 5th CPC – Transport Allowance RBE No. 179/1997 (rates w.e.f 01/08/1997)

S.No.
Pay Scale of the employees
A1/A Class City
Other Places
1
Rs. 8000-13500 or above
800
400
2
Rs. 6500-10500 or above but below Rs. 8000-13500
400
200
3
Below Rs. 6500-10500
100
75

From the above, it could be seen that those in pay scale below Rs.6500-10500 i.e. upto Rs. 6000-9800 (S1 to S10A) were allowed Transport Allowance at the uniform rate of Rs. 100/- p.m. in A1/A class cities irrespective of their pay.

(b) After introduction of 6th CPC Pay Band/Grade Pay, the Railway Board vide circular (RBE No. 111/2008 – effective from 01/09/2008 and RBE No. 95/2015) had prescribed following rates for payment of Transport Allowance to the employees.

Employees drawing Grade Pay of
Rate of Transport Allowance For A1/A class cities
GP 5400 & above
3200 + DA
GP 4200 – 4800,
GP below 4200 and pay in pay band = RS 7440
1600 + DA
GP below 4200 and Pay below RS 7440
600 + DA

A comparison of two tables mentioned above, reveals that Railway employees were allowed higher rate of Transport Allowance on their drawing pay Rs. 7440/- irrespective of Grade Pay/Pay Band. However, the modified Board’s instructions issued vide letter dated 03/08/2017 and 17/08/2017,have deprived the Transport Allowance @ Rs. 3600+DA thereon to those in Pay Level 1 and 2 (7th CPC) due to imposition of restriction i.e. reaching the pay Rs. 24700/- Federation, therefore requests the Railway Ministry to kindly refer the matter to Ministry of Finance, for mitigating the problem.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
