HRA benefit for husband and wife working in Govt-aided schools and autonomous bodies

 HRA benefit for husband and wife

Keeping an eye on the coming Assembly elections, the Akhilesh Yadav government has proposed HRA benefit for both husband and wife working in goverment-aided schools and autonomous bodies besides proposing special allowance for junior engineers working in development projects. The state cabinet chaired by the CM which met in Lucknow proposed these decisions.

A husband and wife working in aided schools and autonomous bodies like Nagar Nigam will now be entitled to separate House Rent Allowance (HRA). Earlier, only one of them used to get HRA benefit while a couple working in state government got HRA benefits separately.

“With this decision aided schools and autonomous bodies have been brought at par as now husband and wife would both get HRA. This was a long pending demand of different associations of teachers and Nagar Nigam and it has been accepted,” a government official said on Wednesday.

In another decision, the state government has reduced VAT on e-rickshaw from the existing 12 per cent to 4 per cent. An e-rickshaw costs between Rs 60,000 and 80,000 and with reduction in VAT, a benefit between Rs 5000 and Rs 7000 will be passed on to rickshaw owners.

The state cabinet also approved special benefit of Rs 400 per month for junior engineers working in different development schemes. “The government believes that JEs should be awarded for working overtime to complete development schemes. So, the cabinet has approved special financial benefit for them,” official said.

The famous Jawhar Bagh of Meerut which was witness to violence some months back and which claimed the life of a senior police officer, will now be developed in the lines of Lohia Park of Lucknow. The state cabinet approved inclusion of more land for developing this region as Lung of Mathura.

In another decision, the government has decided to give backward caste benefit to Bhurtia caste. After this decision people belonging to this caste will get benefits in government jobs and educational fields as enjoyed by other notified backward castes.

The government also approved a proposal to include 197 villages in Lucknow city and also announced special package to distribute diesel pump sets in Bundelkhand.

The government has also agreed to give free land for construction of AIIMS like hospital in Gorakhpur. Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had earlier announced that the government will provide free land but no cabinet approval was taken for this.

The state government has also approved a proposal to purchase Scorpio MUVs for Raj Bhawan.

Interestingly, the CM has called another cabinet meeting on Thursday where the government will give a final shape to the construction of Purvanchal Samajwadi Expressway. Interestingly, the CM will lay foundation stone of this expressway on Thursday evening.
