For Children Education Allowance, the ceiling is 12000/-

The DA has gone up by 6% to 51%.
Its half is 25.5% (3060/-)

Adding it to Rs.12000/- will result in ceiling of 15060/-
Do we take the ceiling of 15060 or restrict it to 15000/-

(Asking this makes me look like a bit odd, but wanted an answer)

Srinivas.

Kindly refer to OM dated 2/9/2008 in this regard (http://persmin.gov.in/WriteReadData/CircularPortal/D2/D02est/12011_04_2008-Estt.(Allow).pdf).

As per this OM the limit of Rs. 12000 will be increased by 25% when the DA crosses 50%. So the revised limit is Rs. 15,000/-
