Haryana Government has decided to grant interest free festival advance at a rate of Rs.4000 to its all class-IV employees who would apply for the same.
While stating this here today, a spokesman of the Finance Department said that the advance would be admissible to permanent and temporary class-IV employees and to adhoc employees, who had been continuing in service for the last one year and were likely to continue for another four months, on furnishing surety of a permanent Government employee.
He said that the advance would be recovered in four equal monthly instalments and the entire advance would be recovered from the pay of the employees before the close of the current financial year. He said that all the Heads of Departments had been directed to ensure that the advance might be drawn and disbursed on or before October 23.
He clarified that the advance would not be admissible to work charged and contingent paid staff and daily wagers. In case, both the husband and the wife were employed, the advance would be allowed to only one of them.
