New Delhi: The deputation allowance given to central government employees has been more than doubled to Rs 4,500 from the existing Rs 2,000 per month, according to an order issued by the personnel ministry.

This allowance will be payable at a rate of 10 per cent of basic pay, subject to a maximum of Rs 9,000 per month, in case of deputation involving change of station, the Department of Personnel and Training order issued on Friday said.

"The ceilings will further rise by 25 per cent each time dearness allowance is increased by 50 per cent," it said.

The deputation allowance at present is granted at the rate of five per cent of basic pay, subject to a ceiling of Rs 2,000 per month for deputation within the same station or 10 per cent of basic pay, subject to a ceiling of Rs 4,000 per month for deputation not within the same station.
