Attention is invited to the instructions contained in Board’s letter of even number dated 9.3.2004 allowing the House Rent Allowance to the railway employees posted to New Zones/Divisions at the rates admissible at their last place of posting during the period from 2.9.2002 to 31.8.2009.

The matter has been considered and in partial modification to Board’s letter of even number dated 9.3.2004, it has been decided that such railway employees would also be entitled to the benefit of House Rent Allowance at the rates applicable to the previous station of posting as per the Scheme subject to fulfillment of other conditions mentioned in Board’s letter of even number dated 9.3.2004.

3. The issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

Employee can be dismissed for forging rent receipt – says High Court

June 25, 2010 Leave a comment
     Forging  rent receipt can cost an employee his job as the Delhi High Court has held that  such a person can be dismissed from service even in the absence of any rules.
        
    Justice Rajiv Sahay Endlaw dismissed the plea of an employee that departmental  inquiry and consequent dismissal from job for forging a rent receipt was illegal  as the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy had no rules governing  services.
           
   “The  element of faith between the employer and the employee is necessary and forms  the basis of this relationship where both work for their respective gains. Once  such faith and trust is breached, the employer cannot be forced to keep the employee in which it has lost faith

    A government employee is not entitled to claim house rent allowance (HRA) as a matter of right, the Delhi High Court has held, saying that it is compensatory allowance paid in exchange of accommodation facilities.

     “HRA is not a part of pay but is a compensatory allowance in lieu of accommodation… and is not to be used as a source of profit. The moment the amenity is provided or offered, the employees should cease to be in receipt of the compensation which is given for want of it,” Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw said in a recent judgement.

    The High Court passed the order on a petition of MCD challenging the order of an Industrial Tribunal to pay HRA to its employees even though they were residing illegally in the premises owned by the civic body.
