Sub: Payment of Night Duty Allowance at revised rates to Civilian Employees working in the establishments under the MoD

Ref: PCDA (WC)’s letter No. Pay/II/Tech/CG dated 17.03.2020

*****

Night Duty Allowance was recommended vide para 8.17.71-77 of 7th CPC report and accepted by Govt. of India vide Resolution No. 11-1/2016-IC dated 6th July, 2017. However, no orders, that might have been issued by Ministry of Finance for implementation of the same, have been received through MoD till date in this regar.

In the absence of revised order on the subject post-implementation of 7th CPC, it seems appropriate to admit NDA claims on the basis of extant orders on the subject until any revised orders are received. Also, unit authorities can be advised to take up the matter with MoD through their administrative channel for obtaining clarification on this subject.
