This advance may continue to be paid as per existing rules as this helps the family of a deceased Govt. employee to cope with immediate expenses for travel to their place of settlement.
The Pay Commission has abolished the Motor Car/Motor Cycle Advance on the plea that there are several schemes available in market. There are several schemes in the markets for House Building Advance also. However, the Pay Commission has not only recommended to continue with HBA but also proposed to increase the ceiling. Therefore, the plea of the commission to discontinue MCA on the basis that schemes for purchase of vehicles are available in the market does not hold good.
Further, several documentation/guarantees are required for seeking the said advances from the market. As it is convenient and safe for a Government Servant to avail such advances from the office without any hassles, these interest bearing advances may be continued as per the extant provisions.
