Subject : Allowances and facilities for employees serving in N.E. Region and A&N, Lakshadweep Islands enlarged and extended to Sikkim, from 1.8.1997— Quantum ceiling on Special (Duty) Allowance and aggregate of allowances removed – Emergency Passage Concession introduced

With a view to attracting and retaining competent officers for service in the North-Eastern Region, comprising the territories of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura, orders were issued in this Ministry’s OM No.20014/3/83-E.IV dated December 14, 1983 extending certain allowances and other facilities to the Civilian Central Government employees serving in this region. In terms of Paragraph 2 thereof, these orders other than those contained in Paragraph 1 (iv) ibid were also to apply mutatis mutandis to the Civilian Central Government employees posted to the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. These were further extended to the Central Government employees posted to the Lakshadweep Islands in this Ministry’s OM of even number dated March 30, 1984. The allowances and facilities were further liberalized in this Ministry’s OM No.20014/16/86/E.IV/E.II(B) dated December 1, 1988 and were also extended to the Central Government employees posted to the North-Eastern Council when stationed in the North-Eastern Region.

2. The Fifth Central Pay Commission have made certain recommendations suggesting further improvements in the allowances and facilities admissible to the Central Government employees, including Officers of the All India Services, posted in the North-Eastern Region. They have further recommended that these may also be extended to the Central Government employees, including Officers of the All India Services, posted in Sikkim. The recommendations of the Commission have been considered by the Government and the President is now pleased to decide as follows:

(i) Tenure of Posting/Deputation—The provisions in regard to tenure of posting/deputation contained in this Ministry’s OM No.20014/3/83-E.IV dated December 14, 1983, read with OM No.20014/16/86-E.IV/E.II(B) dated December 1, 1988, shall continue to be applicable.

(ii) Weightage for Central Deputations/Training Abroad and Special Mention in Confidential Records – The provisions contained in this Ministry’s OM No.20014/16/86-E.IV/E.II(B) dated December 1, 1988, shall continue to be applicable.

(iii) Special (Duty) Allowance – Central Government Civilian employees having an “All India Transfer Liability” and posted to the specified Territories in the North-Eastern Region shall be granted the Special (Duty) Allowance at the rate of 12.5 per cent of their basic pay as prescribed in this Ministry’s OM No.20014/16/86-E.IV/E.II(B) dated December 1, 1988, but without any ceiling on its quantum. In other words, the ceiling of Rs.1,000 per month currently in force shall no longer be applicable and the condition that the aggregate of the Special (Duty) Allowance plus Special Pay/Deputation (Duty) Allowance, if any, will not exceed Rs.1,000 per month shall also be dispensed with. Other terms and conditions governing the grant of this Allowance shall, however, continue to be applicable.

In terms of the orders contained in this Ministry’s OM No.20022/2/88-E.II(B) dated May 24, 1989, Central Government Civilian employees having an “All India Transfer Liability” and posted to serve in the Andaman Nicobar and Lakshadweep Groups of Islands are presently entitled to an Island Special Allowance at varying rates in lieu of the Special (Duty) Allowance admissible in the North-Eastern Region. This Allowance shall continue to be admissible to the specified category of Central Government employees at the same rates as prescribed for the different specified areas in the OM dated May 24, 1989, but without any ceiling on its quantum. This Allowance shall also henceforth be termed as Island Special (duty) Allowance. Separate orders in regard to this Allowance have been issued in this Ministry’s OM No.12(1)/98-E.II(B) dated July 17, 1998.

Attention is also invited in this connection to the clarificatory orders contained in this Ministry’s OM No.11(3)/95-E.II(B) dated January 12, 1996 which shall continue to be applicable not only in respect of the Central Government employees posted to serve in the North-Eastern Region but also to those posted to serve in the Andaman & Nicobar and Lakshadweep Groups of Islands.

(iv) Special Compensatory Allowances – Orders in regard to revision of the rates of various Special Compensatory Allowances, such as, Remote Locality Allowance, Bad Climate Allowance, Tribal Area Allowance, Composite Hill Compensatory Allowance, etc., which are location-specific, have either been separately issued or are under issue based on the Government decisions on the recommendations of the Fifth Central Pay Commission relating to these allowances. These orders shall apply to the eligible Central Government employees posted in the specified localities in the North-Eastern Region, Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep Islands, depending on the area(s) of their posting and subject to the observance of the terms and conditions specified therein. Such of those employees who are entitled to the Special (Duty) Allowance or the Island (Special Duty) Allowance shall also be entitled, in addition, to the Special Compensatory Allowance(s) as admissible to them in terms of these separate orders. Central Government employees entitled to Special Compensatory Allowances, separate orders in respect of which are yet to be issued, will continue to draw such allowances at the existing rates with reference to the ‘notional’ pay which they would have drawn in the applicable pre-revised scales of pay but for the introduction of the corresponding revised scales till the revised orders are issued on the basis of the recommendations of the Fifth Central Pay Commission and the Government decisions thereon.

(v) Travelling Allowance on First Appointment—The existing concessions as provided in this Ministry’s OM No.20014/3/83-E.IV dated December 14, 1983 and further liberalized in OM No.20014/16/86-E.IV/E.II(B) dated December 1, 1988, shall continue to be applicable.

This facility shall continue to be available to the eligible Central Government employees posted in the North-Eastern Region, Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep Islands. In partial modification of these orders, Licence Fee for the accommodation so retained will be recoverable at the applicable normal rates in cases where the accommodation is below the type to which the employee is entitled to and at one and a half times the applicable normal rates in cases where the entitled type of accommodation has been retained.
