    • dear surendra
      TA is 800 plus appropriate DA thereon

      • 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.
