Government has removed the minimum age bar for claiming educational allowance and hostel subsidy for their children. Earlier to avail the benefits the children have to be five year of above. The development fee paid to the school can also be reimbursed against tuition charges paid by them to schools.

"The Finance Ministry has given its nod and a circular in this regard has been issued to all departments," an official of the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.


For the "development fee/parents' contribution charged by the school/institution in lieu of tuition fee to be reimbursed, the government employee will have to certify to the effect that tuition fee has not been charged by the school/institution".

It is also clarified that reimbursement of school bags, pens/pencils, etc may not be allowed.
