TSC dwelling allowances vary slightly depending on the location of the teaching station and employment group. For instance, teachers who work in cities where the cost of living is considered to be too high receive higher housing allowances than those who work in rural areas.
Additionally, the teachers employed by the same municipality but in various employment categories receive distinct dwelling allowances that are equitably distributed.
Municipalities are further separated into three groups (three categories). Nairobi, significant cities, and other towns are included in the categories.
The salaries of employed teachers in the Nairobi region are higher than those of their counterparts working in large municipalities and other municipalities.
Three largest municipalities are Mombasa, Nakuru, and Kisumu. Greater allowances are enjoyed by Tsc employees from these locations who work in higher job groups as well as those who work in lower job groups.
Also this implies that the salaries of teachers in municipalities are determined by their positions, their duties, and the regions in which they operate.
