Sharing is caring

ایک ملازم کو ٹرانسفر پر کتنا ٹی اے / ڈی اے ملے گا؟

This is an important question for many employees how much TA/DA an Employee Will Get on Transfer? The TA/DA depends on the nature of the transfer/posting of the employees. If the employee himself/herself applies for transfer and the transfer is as per the will of the employees, he/she is not eligible for TA/DA.

How Much TA/DA an Employee Will Get on Transfer / Posting?

There are these main situations of transfer/posting of an employee:

■ Transfer/posting of the employees at his/her own will

■ Transfer /posting of the employee due to Department Requirement

■ Transfer/posting on Punishment

■ Transfer/Posting on Promotion

■ Transfer/Posting due to re-appointment of the employee through the proper channel

■ Temporary attachment of the employee

If we look at the above situations, the employee will get TA/DA only in those situations where the department transfers the employee at its own will and the employee has not applied/requested for transfer at that place. However, in case of temporary attachment of the employee even at the will of the department, the employee will not get TA/DA.

Which Financial Benefits the Employees will Get on Transfer / Posting?

The following financial benefits, the employee will get on his transfer/posting by the department:

■ One or Half Basic Pay

Example of Calculation of TA/DA on Transfer

Suppose Government transfers an employee of BPS-15. We shall collect the following data:

On the basis of the above data we calculate the TA/DA for the said employee as under:

Basic Pay

■ Basic Pay = 66490/-

a- Total Amount = 66490/-

Daily Allowance

■ Daily Allowance = 1440 x 2 (Double as distance more than 480 KM by Train

Total Family members above 12 = 4, Amount = 4 x 1440 x 2 = 11520/-

Total family Members below 12 = 2, Amount = 2 x 720 x 2 = 2880/-

b — Total Daily Allowance = 14400/-

Luggage Charges

Luggage Charges = Admissible Weight x Distance x 0.02
= 3000 KG x 1271 x 0.02

c- Total Amount= 76260/-

Transport Allowance

■ Transport Allowance (TA)

We shall get the latest fare rates of AC Parlor or above available train as the employee is eligible for AC Parlor or above facility. The latest rates are 6700/- in Oct 2022. We shall calculate here the full fare for all members as all family members are above 10 years. Hence the calculation of the fare is as under:

TA by Train = 6700 x 6 = 40,200/-

TA by Taxi = 1700/

-d- Total TA = 41900/-

Total Admissible Amount as TA/DA

After calculation of the above, we shall get the total of all expenses (a, b, c & d) that are as under:
