One employee was arrested by CBI . Subsequently he was suspended and an enquiry had conducted. After enquiry , he has dismissed from the service during suspension period. Now he claims subsistence allowance for the period from arresting to date of dismissal. Can subsistence allowance will be paid or not.

Non-payment of subsistence allowance to the suspended employee would vitiate the inquiry conducted during the period of his/her suspension. Therefore, the employer should pay him subsistence allowance even after his dismissal.

Dear Colleague,
Undoubtedly, he is entitled to subsistence allowance from the date of suspension till the date of termination. But clarify the period of suspension and if it was more than one month, why was he not paid the same to him.

The employee is entitiled for subsistence allowance during the suspended period till the period of termination. The employee to be paid from the date of suspension not from the date of his arrest.
