Read:- G.O(P).No.7/2016/Fin dated 20/01/2016
As per the Government Order read above pay and allowances of state Government Employees and Teachers were revised wherein special allowance admissible to employees handling cash has been allowed to continue at revised rates. This special allowance was introduced considering the risk involved in the handling of cash drawn from treasuries in bulk mainly for the payment of salaries. but in the aftermath of successful implementation of integrated financial management system (IFMS) for the financial transaction of the Government, cash transaction of the Government has undergone drastic changes and now almost al salary payments and other claims including contingent claims are transferred elctronically to the bank or TSB account of employees and other stake holders. thus the cash sections in offices are now not dealing with physical cash. Hence Government are of the view that the existing special allowance to employees for handling cash has become redundant.
In the circumstances explained above, the special Allowance allowed to various categories of employees for handling cash will be discontinued w.e.f. 01.04.2017.
