7th Pay Commission Allowances: Union leaders set to meet official today.
The
7th pay commission had recommended that of a total of 196 allowances, 52 be
abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming
them in another allowance.
The Cabinet had earlier approved modification in recommendations of the 7th
pay commission relating to the method of revision of pension of pre-2016
pensioners and family pensioners based on recommendations of a high-level
panel. The decision will benefit over 55 lakh pre-2016 civil and defence
pensioners and family pensioners.

Updates on Allowances Likely Today

Union leaders of central government officials are set to meet top
government officials later today and they will seek an update on 7th pay
commission allowances, said a union leader who would be part of the
delegation. The committee, which examined the 7th pay commission’s
recommendations on allowances, submitted its report to the finance minister
on April 27. The committee was headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa and
had Secretaries of Home Affairs, Defence, Health & Family Welfare,
Personnel & Training, and Post, and Chairman, Railway Board, as
Members, and Joint Secretary (Implementation Cell) as Member Secretary.

The Lavasa committee has suggested some modifications in some allowances
that are applicable universally to all employees as well as certain other
allowances which apply to specific employee categories, the finance
ministry said in a statement. The finance ministry said that an Empowered
Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) will screen the allowance committee report
on 7th pay commission recommendations. The empowered committee will then
firm up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet.
The 7th pay commission had recommended that house rent allowance or HRA be
paid at the rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent of the new
basic pay, depending on the type of city. The 7th pay commission had also
recommended that the rate of HRA be revised to 27 per cent, 18 per cent and
9 per cent when DA crosses 50 per cent, and further revised to 30 per cent,
20 per cent and 10 per cent when DA crosses 100 per cent. With regard to
allowances, employee unions have demanded HRA at the rate of 30 per cent,
20 per cent and 10 per cent.
