Grant of Extra Work Allowance : Decision of 7th CPC

Saturday, June 24, 2017

Cabinet to take final call on higher allowances, HRA on June 28

The Union Cabinet is expected to take final call on proposals related to higher allowances, including HRA (House Rent Allowance), under the 7th Pay Commission, on June 28. The central government employees are likely to get higher allowances as per the 7th Pay Commission from July. However, the central government employees have been demanding arrears on higher allowances, but the government is in no mood to accept this demand. While the salaries of central government employees have been hiked as per the 7th Pay Commission, revised higher allowances haven’t been paid since July last year.

On June 28, the Cabinet would take up the proposals made by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS), which screened the report of the Ashok Lavasa committee on higher allowances under 7th Pay Commission. If media reports are to be believed, the Ashok Lavasa led Committee on Allowances stuck with the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations on higher allowances. It simply means, there could be no hike in higher allowances. The HRA under the 7thPay Commission is likely to be kept at 27 per cent of the basic pay.

Counting of Training Period for MACP - Clarifications

Respected Viewers,

I wish to share the following on the counting the period of Induction and practical training for MACPS in the Department Of Posts. Hitherto the training period has not been taken into account for the grant of promotion under MACPS. On perusal of the rulings on the subject, it seems that the period of training is to be taken into account for MACPS also. Whether this period is included for MACPS in other circles, is not known.

A kind reference is invited to the following orders on the subject. 
Dte letter no 4-7/(MACPS)/2009-PCC dt 18.9.2009
Dte letter no 4-7/(MACPS)/2009-PCC dt 23.6.2016
All the candidates selected for PA cadre are to undergo Induction and practical training for 90/105 days, before regular appointment.

Intelligence agencies warns against delaying allowance hike

Image result for Intelligence Bureau in indiaThe intelligence agencies have warned that if the announcement of the higher allowances and HRA is delayed further there could be a nationwide unrest. The issue that was supposed to be taken up at last cabinet was not taken up due to the absence of the Finance Minister. It is unlikely that the Cabinet will set the agenda for the issue before June 24. Jaitley will leave on a 4-day visit to Russia on June 20 and currently he is busy with the presidential polls for the agenda to be taken up on 19th.

Fitment committee has recommended to raise the basic pay of each employee roughly by 14.5 per cent

With the Cabinet set to discuss the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission after June 25, here is a list of what central government employees can expect on revised allowances and HRA. The Cabinet which was scheduled to meet on Wednesday will now do so only after June 25 as it is International Yoga Day. Moreover Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is out of the country and will return only by June 25.

Government is likely to hike HRA for central government employees under the revised 7th Pay Commission allowances. At the next Cabinet meeting, speculated to be held on Monday, the government is likely to take up discussions on revised HRA. The Committee on Allowances has recommended HRA to be fixed between 25-27% as against demands of 30%. The panel, however, had recommended that HRA be paid at 24%, 16% and 8%.
