Notification of Clarification about Admissibility of Adhoc Allowance 2010 & ARA 2011 on Promotion/Up-gradation to Higher Scales after 30-06-2010

Govt of the Punjab Finance Department Lahore has issued Notification No. FD.PC.2-2/2010 dated 2nd May 2013 in connection with the Admissibility of Adhoc Allowance 2010 &  Adhoc Relief Allowance 2011 on Promotion or Up-gradation of an employee to Higher Scales after 30th June 2010.

It is stated that a question has arisen about admissibility of Adhoc Allowance 2010 @ 50% of the existing basic pay of the Basic Pay Scales 2008 and Adhoc Allowance 2011 @ 15% of the existing basic pay of the Basic Pay Scales 2008 to those who have been promoted/upgraded to higher pay scales after 30-06-2010.

Punjab Govt Employees in BPS-01 to 22 were allowed AA-2010 @ 50% of the existing basic pay of the Basic Pay Scales 2008 wef 01-07-2010 vide Notification dated 15-07-2010. Therefore it was clarified vide Para 2 (ii) of circular letter dated 12-01-2011 that on promotion from lower to higher scale after 30-06-2010 the said allowance @ 50% along with Medical Allowance will be allowed on existing basic pay as on 30-06-2010.

Similarly Adhoc Relief Allowance 2011 @ 15% of the existing basic pay of the Basic Pay Scales 2008 was allowed wef 01-07-2011 vide Para 7 of notification dated 11-07-2011. Both the allowances were also allowed to the new entrants i.e who were appointed after 01-07-2011 @ 50% & 15% respectively of the minimum of relevant Basic Pay Scales 2008 vide Para 6 (ii) & 7 (ii) of the notification dated 11-07-2011.

An anomalous situation emerged between Govt servants already in service and new entrants appointed subsequently. On one hand employees who were already in Govt service and were promoted/upgraded after 30-06-2010 continued to draw both the allowances at the level of admissibility as on 30-06-2010 on the basis of their basic pay scales in lower scale even if was lower than the minimum of pay scales against which the employees were promoted to higher pay scales or placed in the higher pay scales through up-gradation. On the other hand the new entrants who came into service after 30-06-2010 or even after 01-07-2011 were allowed both allowance @ 50% & 15% of the minimum of the relevant of the existing basic pay of the Basic Pay Scales 2008 vide Paras 6 (ii) & 7 (ii) of the notification dated 11-07-2011.

In view of the above, the employees promoted/up-graded to higher scales after 30-06-2010 are entitled to Adhoc Allowance 2010 & Adhoc Relief Allowance 2011 @ 50% & 15% respectively of their basic pay of Basic Pay Scales 2008 as on 30-06-2010 subject to 50%/15% of the minimum of pay scales of Basic Pay Scales 2008 against which these employees have been promoted/up-graded and the rates of both the allowances would be frozen at that level. As far as the new entrants appointed after 01-07-2011 are concerned they would continue to draw both the allowances @ 50% & 15% of the minimum of the relevant pay scales of Basic Pay Scales 2008 as per policy envisaged at Paras 6 (ii) & 7 (ii) of the notification dated 11-07-2011.

    A.A i was est in grade 14. My 50% is 4360 and 15% is 1413 respectively .on 25-08-2010 , i was promoted in grade 15. Will there be any change in my allowances according to the notification? or not.

    1. Dear Shugifta, there will be sure in change of your 50% & 15%. These will be on the new running fix pay in BPS-15 as on 25-08-2010 or if you opt to fix your pay on 02-12-2010, then these will be on the running baisc pay as on 02-12-2010.

  9. Dear Assalamoalikum,

    i have been promoted from BPS 12 to 15 w.e.f. 1.7.2012, now the question is that whether i am able to get premature increment or not and furthermore whether i am entitle to get adhoc relief 2010 & 2011 please confirm it.

    1. Dear Imran if you fix ur pay on 01-07-2012 then u ll not be eligible for annual incremnet although u ll get the premature increment. If you opt to fix ur pay on 02-12-2012 in Bps-15 after availing annual increment in BPS-12, then u ll get the Annual Increment as well as Premature Increment on Promotion. You are also eligible to get the ARA 2010 & 2011 but at the same rate that you are already availing.

  10. Dear sister i want to know that Punjab GOVT. issued notification regarding premature increment increment for upgraded posts or not?

  11.

Now I want to ask what is benefit for me from this notification??? ore agr yeh increase hon gay to kis date sy hon gay.. kindly inform me

          1. Dear Deepak Raj, Sindh Govt employees bhi is notification say faida utha saktay hain aour sindh Govt say isi kay mutabiq Allowance hasil kar saktay hain. Agar wo nahin mantay to Sindh Govt new Notification jari kar sakti hay.

  18. My younger Sister appointed as ESE (BPS 9) in 2009, then promoted as SESE (BPS 14) in 2010. In 2012 she promoted as SSE (C-B).

    How this notification will benefit her?


    1. Dear Saleem Akhtar, This notification protects the allowances, some times on going to higher scales these allowances are less than the new entrants. In this notification it is stated that they will not get less allowances than the new entrants. Plz read the notification carefully for full detail.

  19. I was SESE(BPS-14) from 1 feb 2011 to 2 April 2012, I applied for SSE through proper channel and selected, started from 3 april 2012..
    How I am benefited by this notice???

      1. I am quite unable to understand

        (((allowances will be protected and will not be less than the new entrants)))

        plz tell me clearly what do you mean??

        1. Dear Fahad, Suppose an employee is getting Rs.1200/- @ 15% of basic pay as Adhoc Allowance in BPS-14 and he is promoted to BPS-17. After promotion in BPS-17 he will not now get Rs. 1200/- but now he will get 1478/- @ 15% of the initial of BPS-17 according to the Basic Pay Scales 2008. I think now u have understand it.
