Controller General of Accounts,

Ministry of Finance,
GPO Complex, Block E, Aviation Colony,
INA Colony, New Delhi – 110003
Sub: Request for issuing instructions for disbursement of salary of Central Government Employees for the month of November 2016 in cash.
As you are aware, the difficulties being experienced due to demonetization of Rs.500/- and Rs. 1000/- currency notes may continue for about 50 days as made clear by the Goverment. Further Banks have imposed a cap of 24000/- for withdrawal from savings Bank Accounts. Even for withdrawing that amount, one has to stand in long que for hours together. Naturally Central Government employees are likely to face much problem for getting their salary for this month in time. Employees waiting in que for cash may adversely affect the functioning of Central Goverment offices also.
In view of the above situation, I request you to issue necessary instructions to all pay drawing and disbursing officers, to make advance arrangements for payment of salary for November 2016, in cash, to all Central Government employees, on or before 30th November 2016.
