Consequent upon the decision taken by the Government on the recommendations made by the 7h Central Pay Commission on the subject of Night Duty allowance, the Department of Personnel & Training has issued instructions vide their OM No. A-27016/02/2017-Estt. (AL) dated 13th July 2020 in supersession of DoP&T OM No 12012/4/86-Estt(Allowance) dated 04.10.1989 and No. 15020/2/92-Estt (Allowances) dated 04.04.1994.

2. Para 1(iv) of the DoPT OM dated 13.07.2020 states that the ceiling of basic pay for entitlement of Night Duty Allowance shall be Rs. 43600/- per month.

3. IHQ of MoD has raised a point of doubt whether payment of Night Duty Allowance is entitled only to such of the central government staff whose basic pay is upto Rs 43600/- OR those getting higher basic pay will also be entitled for payment of night duty allowance by restricting the amount to ceiling limit of Rs. 43600/-.

4. In view of above, it is requested to intimate the practice being followed in the offices under your audit jurisdiction in payment of Night Duty Allowance (NDA).

5. A reply in this regard may be furnished to HQrs office by 29.06.2021 positively through e-mail.
