That was the detail for the CA admissibility during maternity leave for female Government employees. On the other way, the Government employee of Pakistan is demanding the Conveyance Allowance increase due to the hikes in petrol prices. All employees of Pakistan expressed the request to enhance conveyance allowance for government employees. The employees have the right to demand such an increase in CA as the fuel price nearly reached 250/- per liter.
