The doubts raised are clarified as under:-
(i). Whether CEA is admissible to a Government Servant who ceases to be in service due to retirement, discharge, dismissal or removal from service in the course of an academic year ?
CEA/hostel subsidy shall be admissible till the end of the academic year in which the Government servant ceased to be in service due to retirement, discharge, dismissal or removal from service in the course of an academic year.
The payment shall be made by the office in which the Govt. servant worked prior to these events and will be regulated by the other conditions laid down under CEA scheme.
(ii).Whether Children of a Government servant who dies while in service are still eligible for reimbursement under the new CEA scheme?
If a Government servant dies while in service, the Children Education Allowance or hostel subsidy shall be admissible in respect of his/her children subject to observance of other conditions for its grant provided the wife/husband of the deceased is not employed in service of the Central Govt., State Government, Autonomous Body, PSU, Semi-Government Organization such as Municipality, Post Trust Authority or any other organization partly or fully funded by the Central Govt/State Governments. In such cases the CEA/Hostel Subsidy shall be payable to the children till such time the employee would have actually received the same, subject to the condition that other terms and conditions are fulfilled. The payment shall be made by the office in which the Govt. servant was working prior to his death and will be regulated by the other condition laid down under CEA Scheme
iii) Whether any upper age limit of the children has been prescribed for claming CEA? Whether CEA can be allowed in case of children studying through “Correspondence or Distance Learning”? If so the age limit prescribed for the same.
The upper age limit for disabled children has been set at the age of 22 years. In the case of other children the age limit will now be 20 years or till the time of passing 12th class which ever is earlier. Cases where reimbursement have been already made, in respect of children above this age may not be reopened. It has also been decided that CEA may henceforth be allowed in case of children studying through “Correspondence or Distance Learning” 5ubject to other condition prescribed
iv) What is the definition of the terms ‘two sets 0f uniform’ which occur in para1(e) of our O.M. dated 2.9.08. What is the definition of ‘one set of shoes’?
It is clarified that ‘one set of shoes’ would mean one pair of shoes and ‘two sets of uniform’ would mean two sets of uniform prescribed by the school in which the child is studying. A set of uniform will include all items of clothing prescribed for a day, as uniform by the school. Reimbursement may be allowed for two sets of such uniform irrespective of the colours
(v) What is the definition of ‘station’ for the purpose of hostel subsidy ?
It is clarified that for the purpose of hosted subsidy, station would be demarcated by the first three digits of the PIN Code of the area where the Government Servant is posed and/or residing’. ‘The first three digits of the PIN Code indicate a Revenue District
(vi) Whether fee paid 10 organizations/institutions other than the school or fee paid to private tutors for purposes mentioned in para 1(e) of the OM dated 2.9.2008 is reimbursable?
No. It is clarified that the term ‘fee’ contained in the para 1(e) of the OM dated 2.9.2008 would mean the fee charted by the school directly from the student.

Shri Kapil Sibal Union Minister for Human Resource Development; Science & Technology and Earth Sciences; Communications and Information Technology said quality education and excellence in science research and Indian Universities, we have set out three generic principles that any new institute of higher education needs to embrace. They are providing access to educational opportunities to all who desire and need it; second, affordability by reducing financial barriers; and third, building quality and accountability to ensure that what is taught is relevant and at global levels, delivering good value for money. This is exactly what we are seeking to incorporate in the thirty new Central Universities that we are setting up.
Speaking at the inaugural function of the 98th Indian Science Congress at SRM University, Chennai in Tamil Nadu today, he further said, “The National Innovation Council (NIC) which will prepare a road map for the Decade of Innovation will help to have approach and methodology to create an inclusive and sustainable innovative Indian ecosystem.” Regarding higher education he said, “The Gross Enrolment Ratio higher education in is today around a mere 15%. Changing labour markets and demographics are driving a “new” demand for higher education. This has come mainly from two groups that traditionally were not known to attend universities: a “rising” lower-middle class and women. This will necessitate many more universities and colleges to be opened in the years to come which are estimated minimum doubling over the next decade. We must also broaden our skills base beyond a few centres of excellence and foster innovation on a national scale. We need to create and enhance our competitive edge. For this to happen, quality and merit-based education for the entire population is a must.”
To reduce the supply-demand gap in higher education and for gross enrolment in higher education, the Ministry has taken several steps to address both these aspects. Shri Sibal said, “An effective quality assurance system will be in place and provide a common frame of reference for students and others to obtain credible information on academic quality across institutions, domestic as well as international. The National Accreditation Regulatory Authority for Higher Educational Institutions Bill, 2010 has been introduced in Parliament to provide mandatory accreditation and creation of an institutional structure for the purpose. This is in accordance with the general principle of moving from an “inspection approval” based mechanism of recognizing institutions to a “verification assessment” method. A National Commission for Higher Education and Research (NCHER) will be set up to regulate higher education. An Education Finance Corporation will also be set up to refinance educational loans to students, especially from lower income families seeking to pursue professional courses, at much more favourable terms than available presently and also provide not-for-profit educational institutions access to low cost funds.
The Minister said that our goal is of Gross Enrolment in higher education should be doubled to at least 30% by the end of 2020, which in real terms means tripling of enrolments in the tertiary sector from around 13 million to 40 million. This will entail massive capacity building, both institutional as well as human. Besides enhancing the quantum of teachers and faculty in colleges and universities we have also to improve their quality.
Describing the strategy to realize the Vision of India as an Innovation Hot Spot, he disclosed an agenda which will include long term academia-industry collaborative relationships with open access to and resources free of intellectual property (IP) entanglements; better integration of corporate with higher educational and research institutions, encourage multidisciplinary collaboration among business, government, academia and R&D thereby creating an environment that supports technological development; recognising the contribution of young researchers to the vitality and quality of the research system put in place more programmes for support of young researchers. In addition to this enhance significantly publicly funded research will be enhanced, modernisation and up gradation of technology in collaboration with concerned government and economic Ministries in use by the small and medium enterprises; encourage the formation of International R&D, technology and innovation consortia between Indian and foreign entities and tax incentives to businesses that collaborate with academia and R&D researchers are included.
