J&K employees, who have shifted from Srinagar to Jammu on or after October 29, 2021 in connection with official work, will get a special allowance of Rs 25,000.
The government on Monday announced that the special allowance at a uniform rate of Rs 25000 will be payable to such employees after it is duly established by the concerned Drawing & Disbursing Officer (DDO).
This order, though did not mention word ‘Move’ this yet it derived its spirit from a similar announcement made by the Lieutenant Governor (LG) Manoj Sinha on April 25, 2021 with a bit of difference.
“Approved Special Move TA@ Rs 25,000 per employee to be paid to all move employees, irrespective of whether they move to Srinagar or work from Jammu. This is special dispensation because of Covid 19 situation,” LG Sinha had tweeted through his official Twitter handle on April 25, 2021.
However, in case of today’s order, this special allowance will be payable only to those employees who have shifted to Jammu from Srinagar on or after October 29.
