  2. Aslamoalakum
    I have done m.phil in Math.
    I recive the permission latter from office of the CEO Sb.of distt.muzaffar to allow m.phil allowance..
    Distt acount officer is not revise my pay slip.
    His objection is CEO is not authorise to allow m.phil allowance, Secretary edu.is authorise
    In this sitution 20 month passed awy
    Plz help me

    1. Dear, the objection of the District Accounts Office seems to be valid. The authority competent to grant you allowance vests in the concerned Secretary who, after scrutinising the case, will issue sanction order endorsing the same to the concerned District Accounts office with a request to issue your revised pay slip if you are a gazetted employee.

    1. Absolutely not. Only emoluments specifically termed or declared as pay are admissible to be reckoned for the purpose of pension except Sr. Post Allowance. The only allowance admissible after retirement was that of Orderly Allowance which was admissible to retirees of Grade 20 and above and the same has been discontinued recently.
