Sir,
Group D employees who are provided with uniforms are being paid a wahsing allowance of Rs. 60/-per month. Now all group D employees are brought to Group C from 01.01.2006. In this context, it is requested to clarify whether these employees are elegible for this allowance hereafter. it is also requested to clarify whether the amount already paid from 01.01.2006 has to be recovered from the official or not?

Dear friend,

All employees (irrespective of their class) provided with uniform are eligible for claim of washing allowance.

Although logically the reply of Shri tvenkatam is satisfactory, academically there needs to be an order from the competent authority.

The Uniform allowance is given to certain common categories of staff as defined in reference no. 14-3-2006/PPG of DOPT dated 28th September 2006. A government employee does not become ineligible for uniform allowance for his post has been upgraded to Group 'C' as common categories of posts falling in Group'C' is also eligible for uniform allowance.
