Subject:   Payment   of Night   Duty Allowance   (NDA)  at revised   rates to the  eligible   civilian employees   working  in the Establishments   under the Ministry   of Defence


Kindly  refer to this  office  earlier   circular  no.   Pay/Tech-Il/I   206/07  dated  28/05/2015 and No.   Pay/Tech-II/  1206/2015/08  dated 29/05/2015  under which the orders for payment  of NDA at   revised   rate  have  been  issued.  In  this  regard   it  is  to  mention   that  the  ceiling   of  pay  for entitlement  of NDA  was  Rs. 2200/-  pm vide   DOPT  order  dated  04/10/1989.   Keeping  in view  of pay structure  under  6th   CPC it has been decided  that the ceiling  limit for entitlement  of NDA  may be fixed at Rs.  12380/-.   While   making   payment  of NDA, an  employee’s    pay  in  the  pay  band will be compared  with  that  figure  and  if pay in the  Pay Band   is less  than  above  limit  then  he will be eligible  for NDA at current   rates  otherwise  he is not.

If any  of the  employees  have  been  paid  NDA already   in terms   of this  office  earlier circulars  dated   28/05/2015  and  29/05/2015  whose   pay  in  the  pay  band   is  beyond   this ceiling  limit,  recovery action  may please  be initiated.

The  same  may  please  be communicated   to all the  Br. AOs  under  your jurisdiction,   for necessary  action  at their end.

This issues with the approval  of Competent  Authority.
