Note ban: Delhi’s non-gazetted employees can withdraw `10,000 in cash as salary advance
The Delhi government on Tuesday decided to disburse a part of the salary of its non-gazetted employees amounting to Rs 10,000 in cash. The Principal Accounts Office of the government has informed all the Principal Secretaries, HODs, and Secretaries about the process.
The past 21 days of impatience, disappointment and anger prevailed as people in the national Capital continued to face hardship in exchanging demonetised currency notes and withdrawing money. Hence,
the Delhi government has come up with this mechanism to curb it. The government sources claimed that the move has been taken to cope up with “prevailing” banking related “issues”.
As rush in banks and ATMs in the wake of demonetisation continues, group C and D employees have been given the option to draw their salary in advance up to Rs 10,000 in cash and this amount would be adjusted from their salary for November to be paid in December 2016, according to a circular issued by the Principal Accounts Office, Delhi government.
“The procedure for disbursement of salary advance as issued by the Joint Controller General of Accounts, Government of India, Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, Office of CGA, New Delhi vide cash dated November 17 will be followed by the DDOs/HOOs.”
