In terms of extant instructions, the Uniform- related allowances being paid to Railway employees as admissible included Kit Maintenance Allowance, Shoe Allowance, Uniform Allowance and Washing Allowance.

Consequent to the decision taken by the Government on the recommendations of the 7th CPC, these uniform-related allowances have been subsumed into a single Dress Allowance. The President is pleased to approve payment of this Dress Allowance to the categories of employees and at the rates as listed below:



S. No. Category of Employee Rate in (Rs.)
1. Officers of RPF/RPSF  20,000/- per annum
2. Personnel Below Officer Rank of RPF, Station masters of  Indian Railway 10000/- per annum
3.
Other categories of staff who were supplied Uniforms and are required to wear them regularly like Trackmen, Running Staff of Indian Railways, Staff Car Drivers, MTS, Canteen staff of Non-Statutory departmental Canteens, etc.
5,000/- per annum
4. Nurses 1800/- per month

With this notification of Dress Allowance, existing uniform-related allowances including those for maintenance & washing of uniforms, will no longer be payable separately. Existing orders for payment of such separate uniform-related allowances including Shoe Allowance therefore stand superseded.

With the payment of this Dress Allowance, categories of staff who were earlier being provided Uniforms, will henceforth not be provided with Uniforms.

The amount of Dress Allowance shall be credited to the salary of entitled employees directly once a year in the month of July.

This allowance covers only the basic uniform of the employees. Any special clothing like the fluorescent clothing provided to Trackmen of Indian Railways will continue to be provided by this Ministry as per existing norms.

The rates of Dress Allowance will go up by 25% each time Dearness Allowance rises by 50%.

These orders shall take effect from 01st July, 2017.
