The DoPT has issued an order stating that the self-certified copies of the printout of the transaction details received by SMS,email or online receipt can be used to claim the Children Education Allowance (CEA). This had to be issued as the operation at the school is disrupted due to the COVID pandemic situation and they are not sending the reports. This option is available for the two academic years ending March 2020 and March 2021. This is only an additional option to the existing mode of claiming CEA.
