ii) On the other hand, Health Professional Allowance, Police Law and Order Allowance, Fixed Anti-Corruption Allowance, Fixed Daily Allowance, Secretariat Allowance, Judicial Allowance, Special Judicial allowance, Technical Allowance, Nursing Professional Allowance, Executive Allowance, Incentive Allowance etc. are Cadre / Service Specific Allowances and employees who are drawing any type of these allowance or any other cadre specific allowance shall not be eligible for Special Allowance-2021.
