Risk Allowance scheme extended
The DOPT, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, has observed that the Govt. has proposed to replace the risk allowance scheme with a new risk Insurance Scheme and noted that in spite of instructions to implement the new Scheme within 2 months, compliance was yet to be received from some Departments.
The DOP &T,based on the request of some Ministries/Departments, has approved the payment of Risk allowance up to the period of 30.09.2010 or implementation of Risk Insurance Scheme, whichever is earlier, is approved. It has been instructed to implement the Risk Insurance Scheme before 30.09.2010 and that no further extension will be considered.
