Subject: Merger of 50% DA with Basic Pay to the Central Govt. employees w.e.f. 01-04-04 for the purpose of O.T.A.

I am directed to note to D.O. letter No. 23491/FA/ISP/EST dated 15-03-04 received from SA & CAO, ISP on the above mentioned subject and to say that the Ministry has sought the clarification from Department of Expenditure in the matter. The Department of Expenditure has clarified that as per the order for purpose of O.T.A. notional pay admissible is pre-revised(IV CPC) scales is to be taken into account and presently non-gazetted staff drawing upto Rs.2200/- per month, in accordance with IV CPC scales(including special pay, Personal Pay etc.) under FR 9(21)E are elligible. Thus merger of DA equal to 50% Basic Pay with in V CPC scales w.e.f. 01-04-04 will not have any effect so far as payment of O.T.A. is concerned.

Yours faithfully
