Each Ministry/Department is mandated to prepare the list of “operational staff” in accordance with a common definition as incorporated in the Office Memorandum dated 19.6.2018 (copy enclosed as Annexure). The rate of OTA has not been revised and payment of the same has been linked to biometric attendance.
