During the various interactive sessions held with the GDSs and their Unions in Circles, the demand of payment of Children Education Allowance was raised.
The Committee also considers that Children are asset of the nation and they deserve proper education to build their future and participate in nation building.
The Central and State Government are running serveral schools and schemes for educating children which are mostly free of cost or have nominal fee.
However, there is small expenditure involved to support the education of children. The Central Government is paying Children Education Allowance @ Rs.18000 per annum per child for maximum of 2 Children in the case of departmental employees.
