Why Govt is not considering to give education allowance to the children studying in Engineering /Medical and other Technical or higher educational institute. As there is no provision for reimbursement of such fee. If there is any provision like CEA kindly let us know or Govt. has decided that Govt employee should not provide higher education to their ward.

Why Govt is not giving education allowance to the children studying in Engineering /Medical and other Technical or higher educational institutes. We have to pay thousads of rupees on children, Why Govt./Unions not looking anything to help parents. You allow colleges to collect huge amount of fees. But you won't help employees to pay fees, which is burdensome. It is really surprising that a LKG student could get reimbursement, whereas an engineering or medical student got get any support from the Govt.

I wish to know if hostel subsidy is reimbursable if the child is studying in a school in the same district.

What is the defination of one set of text books and notebooks ? If a child studying in Class III and purchase 45 notebooks @ Rs 45/- each, the amount of Rs 2025/- can be reimbursed under the overall ceiling of Rs 15,000/- P.A.?
