This post aims at giving primary knowledge on service and salary matters in the initial period for teachers who enter afresh into this field as Higher Secondary School Teacher(HSSTs). There are many teachers who are not able to pay attention to their own service matters amidst their busy teaching schedule. There have been such cases that some newly appointed teachers had to be in charge of principal. Besides, the lack of office staff creates more intricacies in the Higher Secondary Section.

As per the govt order GO (p) No 391-2015 Fin dt 07-09-2015, various salary self – drawing posts were nullified and One office One DDO system came into existence. This is the significant change in the service / salary matters. The prominence of SDO code, SDO specimen card in treasury was done away with this consequently. The major works in the establishment wing was made easier with the generation of joining report, RTC, PSC verification proforma, Relieving Report etc. by the official web site which handles the joining and transfer matters of Higher Secondary school teachers.

Sri.Ramesan Kaarkot, HSST History, CHMKS GVHSS, Kottappuram, Kasargode has prepared a hand book on the service related matters to be done by a HSST entering into service, in a clear and detailed manner for this blog. It has two parts. It is published here with the hope that the HSST community in Kerala would recognize and take up the self-less hard work by Sri.Ramesan sir.

The E-Book "Higher Secondary Service Guide" presents the things to be done once only from the entry period into service to the declaration of probation, the service matters to be done in each period / month of a year after entry into service and various links of related posts published in Hsslive blog.

House Building Loan Scheme(HBA) for govt employees: Orders, Circulars and Guidelines

Tuesday, December 15, 2020 / 2 Comments

For building houses for govt employees, a new scheme instead of the existing HBA has been introduced. They can take loan from scheduled bank or any public sector bank or any non banking financial institution. Loan interest subsidy would be given to bank. The govt has issued detailed guidelines regarding this. Eligible applicants should contact the bank in person. It is advisable to avail of the loan from the bank with salary account as the loan interest subsidy is credited to this account or the salary account can be shifted to the bank from where the loan is to be processed. 


Govt employees and teachers with 5 years of completed service and 50 months of service remaining (as on March 31st) are eligible to apply. This is not applicable to part time service, aided school service, board, company, corporation and university employees. Also the applicants having a house in their own name or husband / wife / (major) children are exempted from this previlege. If the employee or husband/wife has availed of loan already from the government, they would not be eligible to apply. 50 times of basic salary would be alloted as loan to the maximum of Rs.20 lakh. The govt employee couples can apply for loan independently or conjointly. Still, the maximum amount remains the same. The property in the name of the employee or his/her partner only would be considered for house building loan. This is sanctioned for building house or buying plot/house/flat only. 

Selection of banks 

The suitable bank for applying loan can be done after visiting more banks in person or talking to other such loanees to enquire more about the scheme. 

Interest rate 

There may be difference in the rate of interests in banks. The two types of interests are floating and fixed. There would be same rate of interest from the beginning to the end for fixed interest besides there is zero impact of the changes in the financial sector unlike that of floating interest. Though the bank would take high rate of interest in the case of increase in interest rate, care should be given on whether it reflects in the repayment of loan when there is a decline in the interest rate. Some banks may demand request and fixed fee for this. 

Peculiarities of new loan scheme 

This scheme is only for those who haven’t had the facility of HBA early and it is of the ‘first come first get’. Weightage will be there as per the remaining service period. The processing of this will be through a new and specially made software for this. The govt would inform the amount of loan that can be sanctioned each year. 

Loan Amount 

The loan amount that can be sanctioned is 50 times of basic salary, to the maximum of Rs.20 lakh. There would be no rate of subsidy in the interest for the amount exceeding this limit. 

No Objection Certificate 

To sanction the loan amount, the applicants must get NOC from the Finance dept through DDO and submit it in the bank. The details of the same be entered in the service book too. The DDO concerned should intimate the details of the loan sanctioned to the Finance dept and entry be done in SPARK and in the website exclusively for this purpose. The Finance dept would forward the eligible rate of interest to the salary account along with the salary.
