Subject:-Clarification regarding grant of Medical Allowance and Employer’s contribution under New Pension Scheme in favour of the employees appointed under SRO 202 dated 30-06-2015.
Doubts have been raised as to whether the employees appointed under SRO-2o2 dated 30.06.2015 are entitled to the benefits of monthly Medical Allowance and Employer’s contribution toward New Pension Scheme. The issue has been examined in consultation with General Administration Department and is clarified as under:-
“In terms of sub-rule (2) of Rule 10 of the Jammu and Kashmir Special Recruitment Rules, 2015 notified vide SRO-2o2 of 2015 dated 30.06.2015, the employees appointed under these rules are entitled to the benefits under the Medical Attendance cum Allowance Rules from the date of their appointment itself. However, the employees so appointed are not entitled to contribute towards New Pension Scheme(NPS) as the component of NPS i.e. DA is not admissible to such employees during the first five years of probation service.”
All the departments are, therefore, requested to proceed in the matter accordingly.
