These orders shall take effect from 1st September 2008. However, if the Traveling Allowance entitlements now prescribed result in a lowering of the existing entitlements in the case of any individual, groups or classes of employees, the entitlements, particularly in respect of mode of travel, class of accommodation, etc. shall not be lowered. They will instead continue to be governed by the earlier orders on the subject till such time as they become eligible, in the normal course, for the higher entitlements.
It may be noted that no additional funds will be provided on account of revision in TA/DA entitlement. It may, therefore, be ensured that permission to official travel is given judiciously and restricted only to absolutely essential official requirements.
Employees who had undertaken tours between September 1, 2008 and the date of issue of these revised orders and whose TA claims have been settled with reference to their existing entitlements may also be permitted to submit supplementary claims based on their revised entitlements and draw the arrears on this account.
The Daily Allowance rates on tour shall automatically increase by 25% whenever Dearness Allowance payable on the revised pay structure goes up by 50%.
