Respected Madam,

Sub: Grand of House Rent Allowance to the employees who have vacated Government Quarters.

  The above demand was discussed as Item No.16 of the standing committee meeting of the National council (JCM) held on 7-3-2019. The extract from the minutes of the above meeting is given below for your kind ready reference.

  Staff Side said that they are grateful for the Govt. order dated 5-3-2019 issued by the Dept. of Expenditure on the subject matter. However there is a difficulty in implementing this order, in the Min, of Railways & Defence, as these Ministries have their own residential colonies and it is also mentioned in the ibid order that ‘ wherever feasible’ . This provision may have to be deleted, so that the employees who have vacate the quarters due to less facilities etc., are able to avail HBA from various sources etc. and are entitled for HRA.

  Joint Secretary (Pers) agreed to consider the proposal of the staff side

The Department of Expenditure have not yet issued the above mentioned amendment in the Department of Expenditure order dated 5-3-2019

  As agreed in the meeting it is requested that an amendment of the above Government Orders may please be issued by deleting the provision “ Wherever feasible” . A copy of the amendment orders may please be endorsed to this office.

Thanking you.

Yours sincerely,
