After the Centre had increased the Dearness Allowance (DA) and Dearness Relief (DR) for its employees in the month of July this year, they have another good news for the beneficiaries. Those who could not claim the Children Education Allowance (CEA) due to the COVID-19 pandemic will now be able to claim it. They can do so without presenting official documents.
Those who don’t know, as per the 7th Pay Commission, Central Employees get an allowance of Rs 2,250 per month for their children every month for their education. But since the coronavirus hit the country last year, schools were shut and employees could not claim their CEA.
An Office of Memorandum was issued in the month of July by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) that said, central employees were facing difficulties in claiming CEA even after depositing the fees online.
As per the DoPT, parents could claim through self-declaration or print out of result/report card/sms/e-mail of fee payment but since schools were shut, results and report cards were not sent from the school through SMS/e-mail.
What do Central employees get as CEA?
Central Employees get Rs 2250 per month, per child as CEA for the education of two children i.e, Rs 4500 per month for two children. According to two academic calendars, a child has to be paid Rs 4500. If an employee has not yet claimed for March 2020 and March 2021, then it can be claimed.
Documents needed to claim CEA?
Central Employees have to submit the school certificate and claim documents. In the declaration received from the school, it is written that the child studies in their institution. Along with this, the academic calendar in which you have studied is also mentioned. For claiming the CEA, the child’s report card, self-attested copy and fee receipt are also required to be attached.
Parents can now present the admission slip of their to claim the CEA.
