Punjabi University reinstates 20 per cent HRA for employees
| Thursday | 13th June, 2019
It is pertinent to mention that the CAG had recently issued the notice to Punjabi University for overpaying HRA to the tune of Rs 1.16 crore to the employees of the YCoE and directed to reduce it from 20 per cent to 10 per cent.
The PUTA representatives said they opposed the decision of curtailing the HRA of Talwandi Sabo campus employees and argued that this decision was taken in haste.
Dr Jasdeep Singh Toor, secretary, PUTA said, “The case of Talwandi Sabo campus was considered on special grounds as there was lack of infrastructure in the area.
Therefore, the university decided to consider Bathinda as the headquarters and not Talwandi Sabo in 1989.
We also insisted that the curtailed HRA be deposited in the accounts of employees immediately,” he said.
