Pl give the details which notification, date of enforcement etc. to update.

If you have such notification then pl post it on this site so that everybodys get such updated information.


It was in the news about 2-3 months back, but nothing concrete has been approved. After proper approval process, notification would be issued. Then & then only we will have to think about it.

The news has been published today (2nd Oct) in the newspapers. In winter season it would be put before parliament and then it would be further taekn.

Though the eligibility limit for covcergae has been enhanced to INR10,000/- (Basic +DA) but computation limit has been raised merely by INR1,000/- which is not right at all consdiering the fact that limit has been raised after 10 years.
