SUB: Regulation of Daily allowance on tour· Clarification: Reg.
This is in continuation to Council’s letters of even no. dated the 3rd Oct, 2008 and 2nd Feb, 2009 endorsing the orders of GOI, MOF, Deptt. Of Expenditure OMs No. 19030/3/2008-E.IV dated the 23rd Sept, 2008 and 19030/3/2008-E,IV dated the 22nd Jan, 2009 respectively, on the subject mentioned above. References from Institutes in respect of reimbursement of food bills were received in the Council and the same have been examined in the light of SR 49 which states that daily allowance is intended to cover the ordinary daily charges incurred by the Govt. servant while on tour. Accordingly, it is clarified that the expenditure eligible for reimbursement of daily allowance should be of ordinary nature only and ‘purchase of sweets, cashewnuts & other dry fruits’ etc. would not qualify for reimbursement under food charges.
This issues with the approval of AS&FA (DARE/ICAR).

  1. Sir, Producing food bills for claiming DA is not good in the interest of anybody. My intitlment DA is Rs. 150/- perday, If I drink a glass of juice in hotel, have to pay Rs. 40 where as at road side stall it is available at Rs. 15/- per glass. However they do not provide bills. How to go about it please advise
