Desk Allowance is granted to Desk Officers in CSS and other HQ services at a rate of ₹900 pm. No demands have been received regarding this allowance.
Analysis and Recommendations
This allowance is virtually non-existent since 2010 and there are very few instances of its payment now. Besides no valid justification has been provided in support of this allowance. Thus, it is recommended that Desk Allowance should be abolished.
