    (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

    due to retirement, discharge, dismissal or

     other
     conditions laid down under CEA scheme.
    (ii). Whether Children  of  a

    respect 
    of his/her children subject to observance
     of  other 
    conditions for its grant provided the

    , 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

     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’
