14. Health Insurance Scheme
The  Commission  strongly  recommends  the  introduction  of  health  insurance scheme for Central Government employees and pensioners. In the interregnum, for the benefit of pensioners residing outside the CGHS areas, the Commission recommends that CGHS should empanel those hospitals which are already empanelled under CS (MA)/ECHS for catering to the medical requirement of these pensioners on a cashless basis. This would involve strengthening of administrative capacity of nearest CGHS centres. However, this step will go a long way in ameliorating the pending grievances of these pensioners.
The Commission recommends that the remaining 33 postal dispensaries should be merged with CGHS. TheCommission further recommends that all postal pensioners, irrespective of their participation in CGHS while in service, should be covered under CGHS after making requisite subscription.
15. Fixation of Pension:
The past pensioners shall first be fixed in the Pay Matrix being recommended by the Commission on the basis of Pay Band and Grade Pay at which they retired, at the minimum of the corresponding level in the pay matrix.
This amount shall be raised to arrive at the notional pay of retirees, by adding number of increments he/she had earned in that level while in service at the rate of 3 percent.
In the case of defence forces personnel this amount will include Military Service Pay as admissible.
Fifty percent of the total amount so arrived at shall be the new pension.
An alternative calculation will be carried out, which will be a multiple of 2.57 times of the current basic pension.
The pensioner will get the higher of the two.
16. Gratuity
7th Pay Commission has proposed for Enhancement in the ceiling of gratuity from the existing ₹10 lakh to ₹20 lakh. The Commission has also recommended that the ceiling on gratuity may be raised by 25 percent whenever DA rises by 50 percent.
17. Disability Pension for Armed Forces:
The Commission has recommended for reverting to a slab based system for disability element, instead of existing percentile based disability pension.
18. NPS:
7th Pay Commission has recommended for improving the present National Pension System in view of many grievances reported.
19. Leave:
Casual Leave : No Change recommended
Chile adoption Leave : No Change
Child Care Leave: Commission recommends that CCL should be granted at 100% of salary for first 365 days but at 80% for next 365 days. The Commission has also recommended for granting Child Care Leave Single Male Parents
Commuted Leave: No Change
Earned Leave : No Change with respect to encashment
Leave No due : No Change
Paternity Leave : No Change
Study Leave : No Change
20. GPF (General Provident Fund)
Status quo is recommended as far as GPF is concerned
21. Children Education Allowance:
On the whole, the Commission is of the view that quantum of CEA should be calibrated in such a manner that the main objective is met without the government entering into the field of subsidizing private education. Hence, taking into account the various items of expenditure
that are reimbursed as a part of this allowance, the following is recommended:

Component

Recommended rate

Remarks

CEA (₹ pm)

1500×1.5 = 2250

Whenever DA increases by 50%, CEA shall increase by 25%

Hostel Subsidy (₹ pm)

4500 x 1.5 = 6750 (ceiling)

Whenever DA increases by 50%, Hostel
Subsidy shall increase by 25%
The allowance will continue to be double for differently abled children.
Also, the extension of scope of the allowance beyond Class XII was not accepted by 7th Pay Commission

The multiple factor of 2.57 to be applied equally across the board upto secretary level officers. All pay commission has been systematically reducing the gap between the lowest and highest. In 6 CPC the ratio was 1:11.43 approximately. Whereas in 7 CPC the members have increased the gap instead of reducing it. The ratio should have been brought down to 1:10.5 or 1:11 instead of enhancing the ratio to 1:12.5 as given in 7 CPC recommendation. In case it is not feasible the multiple factor of 2.57 should made available to all upto secretary. At present the secretary gets the maximum multiple factor of 2.81 which is higher than the chief secretary which is considered not in the best interest of the nation as a whole. I am sure the present Govt. will prune down the multiple factor of 2.81 given for secretary to the justifiable level.
