Railway Board,

Sub: Enhancement in the rates of various allowances by 25% consequent upon Dearness Allowance crossing 100%

Ref.: Railway Board’s letter No.F(E)I/2011/AL-28/18 dated 13.06.2011(RBE No.87) and E(P&A) I-2011/SP-1/Misc.1 dated 13.06.2011(RBE No.88/2011)
The VI CPC in their report had recommended that certain allowances, viz. Children Education Allowance, National Holiday Allowance, Daily Allowance, Washing Allowance, Breakdown Allowance, Special Compensatory Allowance, Cycle Maintenance Allowance, Fixed Conveyance Allowance, Road Mileage Allowance, Special Allowance to various categories of staff etc., should be increased by 25% whenever Dearness Allowance crosses 50%, and this recommendation was duly accepted by the Government of India.
Based on the above recommendation of the VI CPC, these allowances have since been enhanced by 25% w.e.f. 01.01.2011, i.e. from the date, Dearness Allowance having been crossed 50%.
Now, Dearness Allowance has crossed 100% w.e.f. 01.01.2014, there is, therefore, gross justification that the above allowances be further enhanced by additional 25%, as Dearness Allowance has again crossed the value of 50% after enhancement of these allowances w.e.f.01.01.2011.
The Board are, therefore, requested to issue necessary instruction to this effect an early date
Yours faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary
