7th Pay Commission Children Education Allowance – Orders, Circulars and Clarifications

7th CPC Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy

Children Education Allowance

Children Education Allowance: CEA is paid to government employees to take care of schooling and hostel requirements of their children. The rates of CEA are double for a differently abled child.
Recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission and Govt Decision on Children Education Allowance

7th CPC Children Education Allowance : One of the most anticipated hike in this allowance by Central Government employees, but 7th Pay Commission has recommended the allowance would continue as CEA Rs.2250 pm per child and Hostel subsidy Rs.6750 pm per child. And the allowance will continue to be double for differently abled children. And the commission has strongly object to extend the allowance beyond Class XII.

The commission also recommended that the simplification of procedure for reimbursement. For CEA, a certificate from the head of institution where the ward of government employee studies should be sufficient for this purpose. The certificate should confirm that the child studied in the school during the previous academic year.
Rate of Children Education Allowance (CEA) has been increased from Rs.1500 per month / child (max. 2) to Rs.2250 per month / child (max.2). Hostel Subsidy will also go up from Rs.4500 per month to Rs.6750 per month. Annual amount of CEA for the academic year 2017-18 will be 24750 and Hostel Subsidy will be 74250

Children Education Allowance – An Overview: The Children Education allowance was introduced w.e.f. 1-9-2008 on the basis of the recommendation of 6th CPC. In the background of escalation of school fees, and other expenses connected with education of Children, the present scheme has been a big relief for the Government employees.Presently the allowance is admissible for two children, for studying in a recognised school upto XII standard. The maximum ceiling is stipulated at Rs.18000/- since this allowance had been hiked by 50% because of the DA component in salary having been crossed 100% on 1.1.2014. We suggest doubling of this allowance and increasing the same by 50 % whenever the DA crosses over by 50%
The insistence of receipt for each and every expense to claim the allowance is a cumbersome procedure, which serves no purpose at all. In order to avoid a probable misuse, the employer may be asked to produce an affidavit to the effect this child/children were bonafide student of the school. The production of receipt may be dispensed with.

We also suggest that the scheme may be extended to cover children studying for Graduate/Post Graduate and Professional courses. This suggestion is being made in view of the huge expenses involved for the children’s higher studies, especially in the background of the Government with… from “higher education sector and allowing private institutions to come up and extract exorbitant changes for … courses. Since the quantum of allowance is fixed with a ceiling on maximum, our suggestion … increase the coverage.
