A reference from North Western Railway was received for clarification on the issue of admissibility of HRA in the event of non-acceptance/surrender of railway residential accommodation by a railway employee. The matter was examined and considered in this office in the light of policy guidelines n the issue in consultation with the Finance Directorate of Railway Board. In this connection, it is stated that the provisions of letter No.E(P&A)II-87/HRA-15 dated 16.05.1988 still hold good regarding admissibility of House Rent Allowance (HRA) in the event of non-acceptance/surrender of Railway residential accommodation. However, refused by a Railway servant of a quarter of a different class from that for which he is eligible shall not constitute refusal for the purpose of these orders unless he has the option to apply for accommodation of a class next below the one to which he is entitled by virture of his emoluments and he refuses such accommodation when allotted on the basis of his application.
