It is submitted that Ministry of Defence sought the clarification in the matter from the Finance Division (Regulation Wing), which has been clarified by them, vide their Office Memorandum No. F.6(2)R-10/2012-160 dated 10.04.2013.
It is stated in this notification that the employees who were promoted/upgraded from BPS-15 to BPS-16 as Superintendents and Stenographers are entitled to draw Medical Allowance @ 15% of the Basic Pay of Basic Pay Scales-2008, which they were getting on 30.06.2011, subject to minimum of Rs.1,000/-.
Many employees who were upgraded or promoted after 01-07-2011 from BPS- 15 or less to BPS-16 or greater are drawing only Rs. 1000/- as Medical Allowance. And I think they are also entitled for Medical Allowance according to their basic pay as on 30-06-2007. As there are employees who have basic pay more than 25000/- PM and they were up-graded to BPS-16 but they are still availing Rs. 1000/- as Medical Allowance. A post by delivered by Marghoob Alam.
