Dear Sir,

Reg.
Ref.: Ministry of Personnel & Public Grievances & Pensions, Department of Personnel & Training(Govt.

Ministry of Personnel & Public Grievances & Pensions, Department of Personnel & Training(Government of India), which is the Nodal Ministry in respect of various Personnel Matters, has issued instructions in connection with payment of Cooking Allowance @ Rs.1,000/- per month, as per Cell R3H3 of Risk and Hardship Matrix to Asstt. Halwai-cum-Cook and Halwai-cum-Cook working in Non-Statutory Departmental Canteens functioning under Central Government Offices. This decision has been taken by the Government on the recommendations of the 7th CPC relating to Canteen Staff in “List of Allowances and Recommendations” in para 8.10.16 of Chapter 8.1(S.No.39), that was notified vide Ministry of Finance’s Resolution No.11-1/2016-IC dated 06.07.2017.

The above-mentioned Cooking Allowance @ Rs.1,000/- per month, therefore, needs to be paid to Asstt. Halwai-cum-Cook and Halwai-cum-Cook working in Non-Statutory Departmental Canteens under Ministry of Railways also, but owing to non-circulation of the above Office Memorandum by the Railway Board, this Allowance is not being paid in case of Non-Statutory Departmental Canteens of the Indian Railways.

It is, therefore, requested that, Office Memorandum ibid of the DoP&T dated 01.10.2019 be circulated at an early date, so as to extend benefit of Cooking Allowance @ Rs.1,000/- per month, as per Cell R3H3 of the Risk and Hardship Matrix, to Asstt. Halwai-cum-Cook and Halwai-cum-Cook working in Non-Statutory Departmental Canteens functioning in the Indian Railways at an early date.
