Strong representations have been received th^t war
allowance# sanctioned in your telegram 21016 dated September 21st
is quite inadequate to meet present needs or bridge gap between
net pay of gazetted officers and minimum expenditure and that
inadequacy has given rise to bitterness and discontent- We Dave
consulted Provincial Governments who confirm, view expressed by
3ervice associations that further, relief is urgently requiredo
There is general agreement that maximum limit of pay below which
relief is to be given to married officers should be raised to
Ha*2,000 with marginal adjustments- On question whether grant of
children s allowances would be suitable' means of affording relief
there is some divergence of opinion but we have reached conclusion
wuat practical difficulties in this country outweigh theoretical
advantages of such allowances as method of giving temporary relief>
Ai.ter examination of proposal© mad© by Provincial Governments and
oervlce associations we consider that allowances for married
gazetted offleers irrespective of number of children should be 17 ^
P^r cent up to pay limit of Hs* 1,500 with existing minimum of H's"50,
between ks.1,500 and Hs-2, )0Q allowance should remain stationary
ana over Hs* 2,000 there should be only marginal adjustments- In
view of increase recommended for married officers we propose that
in case of single officers.present percentage should be raised to
v/i orn existing minimum of Ha..30 and upper salary limit from
Hbo /oO oo He-lfOQQo we strongly reco mmend sanction for above
allowances,as from January 1st 1945 in lieu of allowances previously
sanctioned in your telegram of September Slst* in addition we
propose va,* Provincial Governments should be permitted with previous
approval of Governor General to increase allowances now recommended
oy an much as 50 per cent in cnose places where cost of living is
