  1. Daily Allowance

    Family members above the age of 12 years will get the full Daily and the Children below 12 years age will get half daily in Transfer TA.

    Please send/attach the proof/ Notification of the above.
    Some people say that Daily Allowance admissible is only Half Daily on transfer (e.g., if we travel from Lahore to Sargodha, we will reach in 4 hours, and hence only half daily is admissible). Please explain
