  1. As mentioned above, conveyance allowance is not admissible during paid maternity leave. Kindly provide notification of federal govt regarding non-payment of conveyance allowance during leave on full pay. Thanks

  2. Is it possible that I can proceed on lpr on half pay when I reach at the age of 58 years because on half pay two years leave will be treated as on year leave as every two days
    leav e on half payll be considered one day leave on full pay

  3. Sir, there is a contradiction in office order and your explanation mentioned under the heading of Half Pay…..i.e in order full allowance to be paid while you mentioned ”half of the allowance” in 2nd paragraph…. my English is not weak but I hope you will get my viewpoint…


  4. I want to proceed on lpr on half pay and I have 365 days leave I’n my leave account then I think I have to proceed on lpr at the age of 58 years is it possible plz rply

  5. In the last line of above notification it is mentioned that adhoc relief allowances will be paid in full during leave on half pay. How can be an adhoc allowance paid in full which is being granted on running basic pay while the basic pay becomes half during leave on half pay then such adhoc will also become half automatically. Please some body clarify the last sentence/line of above notification. Thanks

    1. It is the reality that Adhoc Relief Allowances based on Basic Pay and it is always counted as separated allowance, it is not then counted towards pension or any other benefit as the Basic Pay.
