Hello friends,
i am having a peculiar case in my institute. a principal scientist in the pay scale of HAG+ Rs.37400-67000 with the gp of Rs.10000 is drawing a maximum of Rs.85000/- inclunding the NPA. He is being given Transport Allowance @ Rs.3200/- wheareas the same person i.e. Director would be given Rs.7000/- if he does not opt for staff car. my question whether the Pr.Scientist would get the same TA of Rs.7000/- as the director would get, as both of them are in the same scale.

by virtue of his office if the pr scientist is entitled to a staff car and opts to not use it then he can be paid rs 7000 + da theron
otherwise only rs 3200 + da theron

As per Order No. 21(2)/2008-E-II(B) dated 29th August 2008 (available at (http://india.gov.in/govt/studies/allowances.pdf)), "Officers drawing grade pay of Rs. 10,000 & Rs. 12,000 and those in HAG+ Scale, who are entitled to the use of official car in terms of O.M. No. 20(5)-E-II(A)/93 dated 28.1.94 shall be given the option to avail themselves of the existing facility or to draw the Transport Allowance at the rate of Rs. 7,000/- p.m. plus dearness allowance thereon".

So the Officer should have the option of using a staff car facility which he must forego to avail a higher rate of Transport Allowance i.e. Rs. 7000/-. If he doesn't have the option of using the staff car facility then the grant of TA @ Rs. 7,000/- in lieu of staff car facility does not arise.

Dear friend
The rule position as explined above is absolutely correct but in most of the offices, officers eligible for staff car is getting Rs.7000/- as Tpt Allowance and are also using staff car facility though illegal. Who cares. This is called power of bureaucracy.

I have been unable to find the document detailing the use of official car for personal use. Also the following document O.M.No.20(5) E-II(A) / 93 dated 28.1.94 . If anyone has this document please do share.

Maybe you could refer to CCS(Staff Car) Rules.

Thanks for your quick reply found the solution. There is a widespread misuse of official car provided to officers ( I refer to those officers who are eligible for having an official vehicle). Hence, I would like to know about the rules governing personal use of car. Any help would be deeply appreciated.
