In accordance with the recommendations of VI CPC, the rates of various allowances admissible to different categories of railway staff were doubled.

Railway Board accordingly issued instructions in respect of various allowances listed in the enclosed Annexure alongwith the letter references under which Railways were authorized to implement the same.

2. Subsequent to enhancement in the rate of Dearness Allowance to 51%, the matter regarding revision in the rate of various allowances has been considered by the Board. In order to dispel any doubts that may arise in the Railways, it is reiterated that the rates of allowances listed in the enclosed Annexure shall increase by 25% with Dearness Allowance now having gone up by 50% w.e.f. 01.01.2011.

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