Iam hereby directed to inform you that after due consideration
the Ministry has taken the following decisions with regard to grant of
TA/DA and payment of special allowance :-
A. Grant of special allowance. Dy. Directors/Wardens etc.
Keeping in view the Special Allowance of Rs.4000/- prescribed
for Pro- Vice Chancellor, Ministry has suggested vide it is letter dated
9th March,2010 that the Dy. Directors may be paid a monthly special
allowance of Rs.4000/- per month. Accordingly, it has been felt that
the honorarium for Deans, Wardens etc. may be suitably revised
keeping in view the existing norms. Accordingly, honorarium/special
allowances in respect of Dy. Directors, Deans, Wardens etc. will be as
|Dy.Director||Rs.1000/ p.m.||Rs.4000/- p.m.|
|Deans||Rs.900/ p.m.||Rs.3500/- p.m.|
|Wardens||Rs.800/ p.m.||Rs.2500/- p.m.|
|Assoc./Asstt. Wardens||Rs.500/ p.m.||Rs.2500/- p.m.|
B. Eligibility for TA/DA with reference to Academic Grade
The recommendation with regard to the question of equivalence
of Academic Grade Pay with Grade Pay for the purpose of determining
the eligibility for TA/DA and other benefits also requires a re-look.
Even though acadehic grade pay has been fixed slightly at a higher
level than the grade pay fixed for similar grade of Central Government
employees, the entitlement for TA/DA and other allowances would be
governed by the provision of the CCS (RP) Rules,2008 as per the
TNDA entitlement for corresponding Grade Pay. Accordingly, the
following mapping of academic grade pay with grade pay is required to
be followed for the purpose of determining eligibility for TA/DA and
|Sl.No.||Academic Grade Pay||Equalent Grade Pay for TA/DA/Other Allowances|
|1||Rs.6000 & Rs.7000/-||Rs.6600/-|
|5||Rs.10000 / 10500/-||Rs.10000/-|
C. HAG Scale of Rs.67,000 – 79,000/- :
A new HAG scale of Rs.67,000-79,000 has been introduced in
place of Grade Pay of Rs.12,000/-. Accordingly, the Grade Pay of
Rs.12,000/- does not any more exist .
The conditions for moving to the new HAG scale will remain
exactly the same as the movement from AGP of Rs.10,500/-to AGP of
Rs.12,000/-. Further, as indicated in this Ministry’s letter of even
number, dated 18.8.2010, this will have prospective effect from the
date of issue of orders regarding revision of scales of pay, i.e.
This issues with the approval of Secretary (HE).
