I have already published an 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 a backdate for the employees who are upgraded with backdate 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.
