  1. i am working as a statistical investigator gr(II) and with that I am handling library too. Is there any allowance or special pay for that

  2. `DHARITRI’, 30/11 – ROURKELA CPI 213, TALCHER-ANGUL 208, MINIMUM GOVT DA WILL BE 65.42% ON JANUARY 1, 2012. THE MAXIMUM MAY VARY FROM 66.83 TO 71.03%. BANKCGMS & BELOW EXCEPT MYSORE & SALBONI(MIDNAPORE)WILL GET 63% ON FEBRUARY 1, 2012. INSURANCE CGMs & BELOW WILL GET 58.95% ON FEBRUARY 1, 2012. PUBLIC SECTOR EMPLOYEES WILL GET 56.47% ON JANUARY 1, 2012.

  3. The Central Govt. to please think about some additional enhancement every time for their pensioners while increasing DA (twice in a year) . Otherwise the poor pensioners will be fallen behind( from monetory point of view ) form the serving C.G. employees year by year. So it is a humble prayer to the Hon’ble Fin. Minister, G.O.I. from all the pensioners to consider the above request in favour. Thanks.

  4. Sir, what special allowance to be paid to offciating accontant in department of posts and on what basis of rule. kindly

  5. The Govt. (both State and Central) issues full page advertisement in dailies greeting Senior Citizens on the eve of “International Day of Older Persons” as if they are really caring for Senior Citizens. But D.A. orders are yet to be issued (except Rajasthan Govt) to Pensioners; whereas the D.A. to serving employees already issued. Mere paper publicity will not help the Senior Citizens; they need timely help. Will the respective State & Central Governments issue D.A. enhancement orders alongwith serving employees at least in future?

  6. What happened to orders of GOI towards D.A. enhancement w.e.f. 1-7-2011? Till date not issued? The Rajasthan Govt. deserve appreciation for having issued the D.A. enhancement orders on the same day of announcement by GOI.

  7. The Pensioners must be given suitable special allowance if D.A. crosses 50% mark. The Govt, must be liberal towards Senior Citizens
