    Default What is the rate of Festival Advance now?

    Festival Advance was paid @ Rs.3000/- to all Non-Gaz. employees. With the increase in the DA beyond 50%, can we increase the amount by 25% i.e. Rs.3750. Any Separate order is required or it is automatic. kindly clarify.

    Non Gazetted employees whose Grade Pay does not exeed 4800 were given Festival Advance of Rs.3000/-. It is already stated in the Rules that the amount will be increased by 25% when the DA goes up by 50%..Hence No separate order is necessary.

    Smile Increase in Allowances /Advances with the increase in DA above 50%

    But Sir, some departments like Railway has issued specific orders to the increase of certain allowances vide Railway Board order No. PC-VI No.264 RBE No. 88/2011 New Delhi, dated 13.06.2011. in file No.E(P&A)I-2011/SP-1/Misc. 1 as is seen from the web. So also the DoP in the case of CEA alone. Though the orders on 6th CPC gives an impression that no separate orders are required, issuance of orders by individual departments makes it confusing

    In original order is clearly stated as " AUTOMATICALLY" increase 25% , when DA increase above 50%.

    In this You ask to correctly implement of word " AUTOMATICALLY " .
