7th CPC had placed Siachen Allowance in the RH-Max cell of the R&H
Matrix with two slabs of Rs.21,000 and Rs.31,500. Recognizing the extreme
nature of risk and hardship faced by officers / PBORs on continuous basis
in Siachen, the Government has decided to further enhance the rates of
Siachen Allowance which will now go up from the existing rate from Rs.14,000 to Rs.30,000 per month for Jawans & JCOs (Level 8 and
below) and from Rs.21,000 to Rs.42,500 per month for Officers (Level 9

twice the existing rates.

It will benefit all the soldiers and officers of Indian Army who are
posted in Siachen.
