HILL AND FUEL ALLOWANCE & SPECIAL AREA ALLOWANCE
Since the Bank officers are paid either of the Hill & Fuel allowance or Special Area Allowance and both are not paid in case of payment of Adhoc Temporary Incentive for officers posted in North East ( popularly known as North East Allowance).
In Central Government Special Compensatory/Remote Locality allowance (Special Area Allowance in our case) is paid in addition to special duty allowance (Adhoc Temporary Incentive for officers posted in North East in our case). The North East Allowance as being paid @ 20 % of Basic pay the rate of both the allowances should be suitably revised as prevailing in Central Government.
The rates of this allowance shall automatically increase by 25% whenever the Dearness Allowance payable on revised pay structure goes up by 50%
