Subject: Grant of Interim Relief to the Central Government employees – Clarifications.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Ministry’s Office Memorandum of even number dated 27th September, 1993 on the subject mentioned above and to say that clarifications have been sought by various Ministries/ Departments in regard to treatment of Interim Relief in various events. The matter has been considered and the position in respect of each point raised is clarified as under:-
|Points of Doubt||Clarification|
|1.||Whether the amount of Interim Relief @ Rs.100/- p.m. will be admissible during “Half-Pay Leave”.||During Half-Pay Leave, Interim Relief will be admissible at half the rate.|
|2.||Whether the amount of Interim Relief @ Rs.100/- p.m. will be admissible when a Government servant is sanctioned “Leave not Due”.||As against point (1) above.|
|3.||Whether the amount of Interim Relief @ Rs.100/- p.m. will be admissible when a Government Servant happened to be on “Extra-ordinary Leave”.||NO.|
|4.||Whether the Interim Relief @ Rs.100/- p.m. will be admissible to those Govt. servants who happened to be under suspension and are drawing subsistence allowance.||“During suspension a govt. servant is entitled to subsistence allowance equal to percentage of the leave salary viz 50% initially and then enhanced or reduced to 75% or 25% as the case may be. Thus if a Govt. servant has been in receipt of Interim Relief before the date he was placed under suspension he will be entitled to the same percentage of the Interim Relief as salary. No allowances like DA, HRA, CCA etc. will be admissible on the Interim Relief. Further, Interim Relief will not be admissible where Govt. servants were placed under suspension before 16.9.93.|
2. Ministry of Home Affairs etc. are advised to regularize the grant of Interim Relief in accordance with the clarifications furnished in paras above. However, past cases decided otherwise need not be reopened.
3. In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these clarifications issue after consultation with the Comptroller & Auditor General of India.

Government of India.
