Medical Allowance Rates since 1987 for the Civil Servants

I have already published article about the History of Adhoc Relief Allowances. Today I am writing the history of the Medical Allowance Rates Since 1987. These rates are very useful for the purpose of calculation of arrears with back date for the employees who are upgraded with back date and are given benefits from the previous dates.

Medical Allowance @ Rs.50/- per month was granted to the employees of BPS-01 to BPS-15 vide Finance Division O.M No. F.l/7/Imp-II/87, dated 1st July, 1987. Later on on 01-06-1991 it was raised to Rs. 60/- per month on the existing conditions. It was fixed Rs. 90/- per month on 01-11-1995 and again raised to Rs. 160/- per month on 01-12-2001.

It was fixed Rs. 210/- PM on 01-07-2002 & Rs. 425/- PM on 01-07-2005 and Rs. 500/- per month on 01-07-2008.

The rates of Medical Allowance were once again revised on 01-07-2010 and at this time Gazetted Officers were also granted the Medical Allowance at the running basic pay that were frozen on 01-07-2011 at the introduction of new revised pay scales 2011.

Medical Allowance for the Non Gazetted Staff again revised on 01-07-2014 and its rates were fixed Rs. 1200/- per month instead of Rs. 1000/- The summary of these changes is given below:
