    Red face Half Pay/DA

    Dear Sirs/Friends,

    Generally when half-pay leave is granted, DA is given accordingly (i.e. based on half-pay). But today a person challenged stating that it is not so and that half pay leave means only PAY will be half whereas DA etc. will be for FULL pay.

    I disagree with him.But he wants me to show him the rule in writing. Where can I find it?

    Regards

    Dear Friend,

    During HPL, the leave salary is drawn @ 50% of basic pay and 100% of allowances including dearness allowance.

    Sir,

    Thank you for the prompt reply. This is actually new to me. Thank God, I will not be causing any financial hardship to the person due to my ignorance of rules.

    Sir, now to convince my Admin officer (who also holds my previouis views), May I request for any reference/ OM etc. if available/you remember ?

    Thanks againa and Regards

    Dear sir,

    During Half Pay Leave pay will be half the amount of leave salary. DA 100% means full DA for the Half pay which means the amount of DA will be half.

    I agree with Sasi. DA is linked to Basic Pay and hence if Basic pay is half, DA will also get reduced accordingly.

    Dear Mr. RKR/RKP,

    Regret to inform that the reply given by me was erroneous and please note the correction. DA at prescribed rates on half pay only will be admissible during HPL. The other allowances such as HRA (if admissible) and Transport allowance will be drawn at full rates (based on full pay).
