How to correctly calculate Double Transport Allowance for handicapped employees?
A bit confused about the TA and DA calculated for Double Transport Allowance for handicapped employees? Confirm your calculated TA & DA with expert help at this page.
Today I have been granted Double Transport Allowance for hearing impaired (mine 100%), wef 19.2.2014. I was drawn Rs.800 + DA for Transport Allowance during Feb. 2014. For Handicapped employees, TA was minimum of Rs.1000 per month with DA. I want to clarify that if a govt servant's claimed TA (6th Pay Com.) is 1600 (A-1 City) + DA, then Handicapped employees will get Rs.1600 x 2 + DA. Is this calculation correct?
If yes, then for other Cities, my area Tuticorin city of TN, TA is 800 + DA for normal. For Handicapped it was minimum of Rs.1000. So TA (1000 x 2) + DA or (1000 + DA). Which one is correct? (For 7th Pay commission this amount revised for handicapped Min. Rs.2250 + DA. Is this to be read as Rs.2250 x2 + DA?
