Subject: Recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission —
Implementation of decision relating to the grant of Children Education Allowance. 

*****

Consequent upon the decision taken by the Government on the recommendations
made by the Seventh Central Pay Commission on the subject of Children
Education Allowance Scheme, the following instructions are being issued in
supersession of this Department’s OM dated 28-4-2014 : – 
(a) The amount fixed for reimbursement of Children Education allowance will
be Rs.2250/-pm. 
(b) The amount fixed for reimbursement of Hostel Subsidy will be Rs.
6750/-pm. 
(c) In case both the spouses are Government servants, only one of them can
avail reimbursement under Children Education Allowance. 
(d) The above limits would be automatically raised by 25% every time the
Dearness Allowance on the revised pay structure goes up by 50%. The
allowance will be double for differently abled children. 
2. Further, reimbursement will be done just once a year, after completion
of the financial year. For reimbursement of CEA, a certificate from the
head of institution, where the ward of government employee studies, will be
sufficient for this purpose. The certificate should confirm that the child
studied in the school during the previous academic year. For Hostel
Subsidy, a similar certificate from the head of institution will suffice,
with the additional requirement that the certificate should mention the
amount of expenditure incurred by the government servant towards lodging
and boarding in the residential complex. The amount of expenditure
mentioned, or the ceiling as mentioned above, whichever is lower, shall be
paid to the employee. 
3. These orders shall be effective from 1st July, 2017. 
4. Insofar as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department
are concerned, these orders issue in consultation with the Comptroller and
auditor General of India. 
Hindi version will follow.
