Subject:- Grant of Interim Relief to the Central Government employees.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Ministry’s Office Memorandum of even number dated 2-8-1983 on the above subject, and to say that doubts have been expressed by several Ministries/Deptts. in regard to taking into account the above benefit for certain purposes. The matter has been considered in consultation with the Department of Personnel and A.R. and the position is clarified as under:-
|POINT OF DOUBT||CLARIFICATION|
|1.||Whether full amount of Interim Relief will be taken into account for determining the pension of a Government servant who retired on 30-6-83||Since interim relief has been sanctioned w.e.f. 1-6-83 the amount of interim relief for one month only will be taken into account for calculating average of 10 months emoluments.|
|2.||Whether the amount of interim relief will be taken into account while determining the amount due as encashment of leave at the time of retirement.||Leave salary may be first calculated orders and interim relief payable on the amount of leave salary so calculated will be added as a separate element for the purpose of encashment of leave.|
|3.||Whether the interim relief will be reckoned as pay for determining the leave salary on average pay as well as half average pay.||As against point (2) above. In regard to half pay leave, interim relief as appropriate to the slab in which the quantum of half pay leave falls may be allowed.|
|4.||Whether the amount of interim relief will be taken into account for determining the amount of family pension.||Yes.|
|5.||Whether for determining the amount of house rent recoverable from employees, the amount of interim relief will be ignored.||Yes.|
|6.||Whether any cut should be enforced in the amount of interim relief, if the pay of a factory worker is cut for absence for a full day or for a half day.||If the pay of the worker is cut for absence from duty for a full day, he will lose one day’s salary including interim relief. If the cut is for half day, absence, the interim relief will be allowed appropriate to the pay after the cut.|
|7.||Whether the interim relief will form part of the emoluments for the purpose of determining the rates of overtime allowance.||No.|
|8.||Whether the dearness pay at present admissible will be reckoned as pay for the purpose of determining the pay slab for payment of interim relief.||No.|
|9.||Whether the interim relief will be taken into account for recovery of the subscription towards provident fund as well as Government contribution thereon in the case of those who are governed by contributory provident fund scheme.||Yes.|
|10.||Whether the interim relief will be admissible to Govt. pensioners on their re-employment in Civil posts, and if so, how it is to be determined||Yes. It will be admissible on the pay fixed in the civil posts on re-employment.|
|11.||Whether Dearness pay for calculation of pension, would be worked out on emoluments including the element of interim relief.||No. The dearness pay should continue to be calculated as heretofore, without taking into account the element of interim relief.|
2. In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these clarifications issue after consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.
