Deputation Allowance – 7th pay Commission Recommendations

7th CPC recommends for raising the ceiling of Deputation allowance to Rs.4500 p.m within the Station and Rs.9,000 p.m. for change of station

7th CPC report has been submitted to Central Government and recommends for hike in ceiling of deputation allowance.  The details of the present condition and the recommendations are given below:

Deputation Allowance

This section covers allowances that are granted to employees when they proceed on deputation.

There are three such allowances:

  • (a) Deputation (Duty) Allowance for Civilians,
  • (b) Deputation (Duty) Allowance for Defence Personnel and
  • (c) Tenure Allowance for Railway employees posted in RDSO or Railway Board.

At present Deputation allowances are granted @ 5% of Basic Pay, subject to a ceiling of Rs.2000 p.m for within the Station and @ 10% of Basic Pay subject to a ceiling of Rs.4,000 p.m. for change of station.

In case of offices of Defence services, they have the option to either (a) draw 50 percent of deputation allowance along with service concessions or (b) draw 100 percent of deputation allowance but forego the service concessions.

Demands Received

Representations received that the deputation allowances be doubled and ceilings be removed.  Defence officers have requested that they should be allowed to draw full deputation allowance along with the field service concessions.

Analysis and Recommendations

The Commission noted that the ceilings are not DA indexed. Hence, it is recommended that the ceilings should be raised by a factor of 2.25 to Rs.4,500 per month for deputation within the same station, and to Rs.9,000 per month for deputation involving change of station. The ceilings will further rise by 25 percent each time DA increases by 50 percent. No other changes are recommended.
