When I was posted at barasat kolkata i was getting 24% HRA .laters i had been posted to Ranchi and my family still st residing at kolkata but present ly at Ranchi i am drawing only 16% HRA. So request what should be entitled for me. 24% or 16 % what is correct for my new place of posting i.e for Ranchi.
HRA is eligible as per the place of duty of the Government servant, not for the family members living place.
