O R D E R:
In the Government Order 1
read above, orders were issued constituting
Ninth Pay Revision Commission and government appointed Sri C.S. Rao, IAS,
(Retd.), as Pay Revision Commissioner.
2. The Ninth Pay Revision Commission submitted its report to the
Government on 5-12-2009 and recommended, inter alia that, “as in the case of
regulation of D.A. while on leave, the payment of H.R.A. & C.C.A. may also be
allowed to State Govt. employees as applicable to the employees of Govt. of
India. The Commission therefore recommends the payment of H.R.A./C.C.A.
upto 180 days during leave of all kinds in the normal course. However, in case
the leave is granted to the employees who are suffering from Cancer and other
ailments such as Mental illness, Heart diseases, Leprosy, renal failure and HIV
Aids they may be paid HRA/CCA upto a period of 8 months. The Commission
further recommends that if the employees are suffering from the above ailments,
and who remain on leave for a period exceeding 8 months, the grant of
HRA/CCA for the period of leave beyond 8 months may be decided by the Head
of the Department concerned so long as the period of leave is supported by the
Medical Certificate in the prescribed form. The commission feels that since TB is
easily curable with advances in medicine there is no need to extend the facility to
patients suffering from T.B.
3. In the Government order 4
read above, it was ordered that the maximum
earned leave that may be granted at a time to a government servant in superior
service is enhanced from 120 days to 180 days on par with the employees of the
Govt. of India.
4. In the G.O. 2
read above orders were issued for the drawal of
full pay to the extent of six months, in lieu of six months half pay leave, if at
credit, by all regular Government servants, who are suffering from
Leprosy/Tuberculosis/Cancer/Heart diseases and Mental Illness and Renal
4. After careful examination of the report, Government decided to accept the
recommendations of the Pay revision Commissioner and hereby order that, the
payment of HRA and CCA be allowed to State Govt. employees upto 8 months
during the leave availed on the ground of suffering from Cancer, Mental Illness,
Heart diseases, Leprosy, Renal failure and HIV aids. Further, if the employees
suffering from the above ailments, remain on leave for a period exceeding 8
months, the grant of HRA/CCA for the period of leave beyond 8 months shall be
decided by the Head of the Department concerned so long as the period of leave is
supported by the Medical Certificate in the prescribed form. This facility is not
available to the Govt. employees suffering with T.B. since TB is easily curable
with advances in medicine. 5. These orders will come into force with immediate effect.
