Dear Friends, 
 
Sub: Revised MDA Guidelines w.e.f. 01 April 2017  
 
Dear Colleagues, 
 
Attached please find the revised MDA Guidelines , which will be effective from 01 April 2017, which are self-explanatory. According to the new guidelines, members need to get prior approval at least 21 days in advance before going abroad.
 
However, all claims submitted with the Ministry during the year 2015-16 and 2016-17 will be considered for settlement within the existing scheme/guidelines of 9th July 2015.  A copy of office memorandum dated 31st March 2017 received from Ministry is attached for your information. 
 
With best regards,
 
Lally Mathews
Hony. Secretary
