Centre increases allowance for disabled kids of employees
The central government has increased the education allowance for disabled children of its own employees from Rs 30,000 to Rs 54,000 per year.
As per the new rule, the yearly amount fixed for Children Education Allowance (CEA) for disabled children of central government employees is now Rs 54,000.
In case, both the spouses were government employees, only one of them could avail of the allowance.
For the education allowance, a certificate from the head of the institution, where the child of the government employee studied, would be enough, said the order.
The certificate must confirm that the child studied in the school during the previous academic year.
