7CPC TA/DR

Analysis and Recommendations of TA/DR in 7th Pay Commission


The Commission considered the present model of this allowance, followed both in Railways and in other ministries. It is proposed to adopt the best from previous TA/DR structure so that the administration of the allowance can be simplified. Accordingly the following recommendations may be approved by the Government.

a) Reimbursement of staying accommodation charges



Level

Ceiling for Reimbursement

14 and above

7500

12 and 13

4500

9 to 11

2250

6 to 8

750

5 and below

450
For levels 8 and below, the amount of claim (up to the ceiling) may be paid without production of vouchers against self-certified claim only. The self-certified claim should clearly indicate the period of stay, name of dwelling, etc. The ceiling for reimbursement will further rise by 25 percent whenever DA increases by 50 percent. Additionally, it is also provided that for stay in Class ‘X’ cities, the ceiling for all employees up to Level 8 would be 1,000 per day, but it will only be in the form of reimbursement upon production of relevant vouchers.

b) Reimbursement of travelling charges


Level

Ceiling for Reimbursement

14 and above

AC Taxi charges up to 50 km

12 and 13

Non-AC Taxi charges up to 50 km

9 to 11

Rs 338 per day

6 to 8

Rs 225 per day

5 and below

Rs 113 per day

Similar to Reimbursement of staying accommodation charges, for levels 8 and below, the claim (up to the ceiling) should be paid without production of vouchers against self certified claim only. The self-certified claim should clearly indicate the period of travel, vehicle number, etc. The ceiling for levels 11 and below will further rise by 25 percent whenever DA increases by 50 percent. The rate of allowance for foot journeys shall be enhanced from the current rate of 7.5 per km to 12 per km traveled on foot. This rate also shall further rise by 25 percent whenever DA increases by 50 percent.
There will be no separate reimbursement of food bills. Instead, the lump sum amount payable will be as per Table 1 below and, depending on the length of absence from headquarters, would be regulated as per Table 2 below. Since the concept of reimbursement has been done away with, no vouchers will be required. This methodology is in line with that followed by Indian Railways at present (with suitable enhancement of rates).

c) Lump sum amount payable for food


Level

Lump Sum Amount

14 and above

1200

12 and 13

1000

9 to 11

900

6 to 8

800

5 and below

500
The Lump sum amount will increase by 25 percent whenever DA increases by 50 percent.

d) Timing restrictions


Table 2

Amount Payable

If absence from headquarters is <6 hours

30% of Lump sum amount

If  absence  from headquarters  is between  6-12 hours

70% of Lump sum amount

If absence from headquarters is >12 hours

100% of Lump sum amount


Absence from Head Quarter will be reckoned from midnight to midnight and will be calculated on a per day basis. 
All the above provisions will apply to Railway personnel also.
