This is very important enquiry. central government employees S.A during suspension has been revised and fixed as 75%. Is the required G.O of same nature? I feel that the contents of the G.O must be made available to all the employees to know their rights.

No. 4652-F, Kolkata the 18th June, 2007

MEMORANDUM


A question has been raised from different quarters as to what will be the quantum of dearness allowance admissible to a Government employee placed under suspension in terms of rule 71 of the WBSR - I and whether merger of 50% of the subsistence allowance paid to the employee under suspension will be done for computing the amount of dearness allowance with effect from 1st April, 2007 on the analogy of F. D. Memo. No. 2415-F dated 27.3.07 read with No. 2416-F dated 27.3.07.

After careful consideration of the matter, the undersigned is directed by order of the Governor to say that since subsistence allowance will be equal to the leave salary which the Government employee would have drawn if he had been on half-pay. the rate of dearness allowance will be on such amount of subsistence allowance and if the subsistence allowance is increased or decreased, as the case may be, under clauses (i) or (ii) of sub-rule (1) of rule 71 of the WBSR - l the rate of dearness allowance will be based on the increased or decreased amount of such subsistence allowance.

The undersigned is further directed to say that with effect from 1st April, 2007, for the purpose of computing dearness allowance on the amount of subsistence allowance admissible to a Government employee under suspension, 50% of the amount of subsistence allowance will be merged with the admissible subsistence allowance and dearness allowance will be paid at the rate as admissible under F D. Memo. No. 2416-F dated 27.3.07 taking into account the amount of subsistence allowance and 50% of the said amount taken together.

No. 2415-F dated 27.3.07 and No. 2416-F dated 27.3.07, I would request the Hon'ble memebrs to post the same on this site so that the matter is understood in its entirety.

The language used in the Memorandums by the Government is twisted and confusing. I am also a little weak in mathemetical calculations. I would request the Hon'ble members to kindly post their calculated views about the quantum of subsistence allowance which an employee under suspension is entitled to get. I would also like to know whether S.A means the half of the basic pay, full grade pay and full D.A or the half of the basic pay,half of the grade pay and half of the prevailing dearness allowance and other misc.allowances which was admissible to the suspended employee when he was not under suspension. Kindly confirm in simple language.
