      Dear sunanda
      For drwal of HRA A G.servant has to incur some expenditure on rent/contribute rent or pay house tax/property tax. In your husband’s case he is residing at office quarters that means NO HRA for him. If you are residing separately and incurring rent for your residence you may get HRA from your State Govt office.

      August 25, 2010 at 4:51 pm

      dear surendra
      TA is 800 plus appropriate DA thereon

      • Sikander Aggarwal
        September 26, 2010 at 10:13 pm

        I think TA depends on the city in which the employee is posted. Straight forwardly saying that TA is 800 plus DA thereon is not correct. It cab be 1600 plus DA thereon also if the employee is working in any if 13 notified cities as A/A1. Kindly check.
