The Department has clarified that HRA up to 90 days for officiating arrangements should be drawn. This is one of the subjects placed in the JCM Department Council.

We are demanding to relax the condition and extend the drawal of HRA even beyond 90 days ordering suspension of Quarters.

The copy of the orders is furnished below.

Government of India
Ministry of Communications & IT
Department of Posts
(Establishment Division)

Dak Bhawan, Parliament Street
New Delhi – 110001
Dated – 30.07.2010
Al Chief Postmaster General,
All Postmasters General

Sub: - Non-drawal of HRA to the officiating Sub-Postmaster working in office having attached quarters


I am directed to intimate that the staff side has taken up the above item in the Departmental Council (JCM) for discussion as agenda. The staff side has alleged that HRA has not been paid to the officials who are working against such vacancies resulting loss in emoluments and requested for issuing instructions to the Circles.

2. The attention of the Circle is drawn to Directorate letter no. 24-3/76-PAP dated 22.09.77 wherein it was decided for payment of compensation in lieu of rent free accommodation to Government servants for a maximum period of 3 months when he is posted of officiate in a post to which rent free accommodation is attached but which is not provided to him.

3. Further, attention is drawn Directorate letter no. 24-3/76-PAP dated 20.08.79 wherein instructions were issued for payment of House Rent Allowance as admissible to all Government servants not entitled to rent free accommodation for a maximum period of 90 days provided the vacancies are short term ones involving local arrangements. These instructions have not undergone any change and continue to apply.

4. It is, therefore, requested to reiterate these instructions of Directorate letter no. 24-3/76 dated 20.08.79 (copy enclosed) to all the subordinate units for grant of HRA to the Government servants who are officiating as Sub-Postmasters where rent free accommodation is attached and not provided to him and to avoid any grievances from the staffing the regard.

5. This issues with the approval of DDG (Establishment)

Yours faithfully,
(K. Rameshwara Rao)
Assistant Director General (Estt)
