Currently, the central government employees are getting allowances under
the 6th Pay Commission recommendations.
The 7th pay commission had recommended abolishing of 51 allowances and
subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances. On the protest of central
government employees, the government set Committee on Allowances headed by
the Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasaup to review allowances other than
dearness allowance. However, it is still unclear whether arrears on
allowances would be given or not.
