    Dear Ramanajee,
    As per OM dated 19.11.2008, you will not get any DA if you make your own arrangments.
    As for the expenses incurred on food, shelter and travel, the OM says " the actual expenditure incurred shall be reimbursed as per the the normal procedure "
    What is normal procedure is anybody's guess.
    With regards,
    Badri

    Red face DA Allowances

    Dear Comrades,

    The OM does not mentioned clearly what is the procedure. It is like Customs & Central Excise Notifications. Anyone can interpret the procedures accroding to their wishes. You can't get bill for tea,coffee from roadside shops. The same is in the case of auto travelling. If you are in deputation from your divisional office to other formations you have to spend from your pocket. Since, you can't produce bill for each and everything you have to loose your money. No one is bothered about middle level officers, who are in the field. The middle level officers are going to suffer very much, since they are answerable to higher officers as well as lower cadre officers. Instead of asking clarification from each member, all members can discuss the matter and try to find out some feasible solution and the same may be forwared to the Ministry.

    Default Solution for TA reimbursement.

    The only and best solution to this vexed problem will be to obtain a self declaration from the claimant towards the amount spent towards fooding and passing for the admissible amount.

    The PM, who is also the FM now, should find out the official who is responsible for the wording in the TA OM in respect of food bill and send him on tour to some interior place / country side and submit the food bill.

    No amount of higher intelligence is superior to common sense and knowing the ground reality. India is not just Delhi or some city.

    Even the fixing the room rent without consideration of place is also not a fair decision, I think

    Default Allowances on tour

    rsub2008 is correct.There are no clear instructions,about DA on tour.Whether it was taken to anamolies committee or not.Central govt employees associations have to take up the matter to authorities concerned and the confusions may be solved.
    Thankyou

    Insistance of foodbill for ther re-imbursement has compelled large number of people to make fasle vouchers. The OM is indirectly responsible for initiating honest people to commit mistakes in claim bills.

    The only solution is to ensure the official gives self certification (declaration) and limit the re-imbursement to the entitled amount.

    Dear friends,
    I agree with the author.
    Sooner than later, the Govt will review and recosider and ultimately, may allow self certification in so far as expenses in respect of lcoal travel and food expenses.
    With regards,
    Badri.

    Default Option to claim old DA rates

    As per Min of Fin OM No. 19030/3/2008-E.IV dated 22 Jan 2009, Individual on tour may claim as per old rate of DA applicable before 6 Pay commission implementation. This order may give some respite to this problem.
