Sub: Payment of Night Duty Allowance (NDA)- regarding.
Ref: Letter No. Pay/Tech-11/206 dated 17/7/2018.
With reference to the above please find enclosed a copy of OFB circular No.658/NDA/Per/ Policy dated 11/4/2018 issued on the subject. In this regard it is indicated that the subject matter had come up for discussion in the Steering Committee Meeting for JCM-III level council meeting held on 10/04/2018 wherein it transpired that OFB’s clarification dated 21/11/2017 has already indicated that the conditions laid down in OFB circulars dated 21/05/2015 and 10/09/2015 remained unchanged and hence eligible employees are entitled to draw NDA based on the revised pay and allowances drawn by them w.e.f. 01/01/2006 and payment of arrears from Apr’2007 in line with Court’s order. Hence, it was decided to issue a general circular clarifying the queries of various Fys. Accordingly, the OFB circular dated 11/4/2018 has been issued for necessary compliance at all OPS/Units and wherein PC of A (Fys) had also been requested to issue necessary directions to all Branch AOs for admitting NDA claims.
Forwarded for information and further necessary action please.
Encl: As above.
For Director General Ordnance Factories
