GRANT OF UNIFORM AND KIT MAINTENANCE ALLOWANCES-REGARDING
D.G. Posts No. 23-5/2007-UPE dated 02.02.2012. (Addressed to Director (JCA), DOPT.)
In the Department of Posts, meeting of the Departmental Council (JCM) is scheduled to be held on 10.02.2012. The Staff Side of the Departmental Council (JCM) has submitted an agenda item regarding grant of uniform and kit maintenance allowance to all uniformed staff. In agenda item it is submitted that there is no provision for grant of uniform/kit maintenance allowance for keeping the uniform and other kit items for better appearance and long duration like other uniform wearing staff such as nurses etc. Washing Allowance and stitching charge is not a substitute for good maintenance. Therefore, the Staff Side has requested for grant of uniform/kit maintenance allowance to all uniformed staff.
2. In view of the above, it is requested to consider the proposal of grant of uniform/kit maintenance allowance from the staff Side of the Departmental Council (JCM) and intimate the decision to Department of Posts at the earliest.
