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.

Suspense on higher allowances continues...cabinet did not take up the issue today

Central government employees will have to wait a while longer for availing benefits of the changed allowance rates as the Union Cabinet did not discuss the matter even in the second meeting this month.

Cabinet did not discuss Central employees' allowances

Disappointment continues.....at least up to next cabinet meeting
The waiting for Central government employees, who are hoping for higher HRA and other allowances, could get a tad longer since the Union Cabinet did not take up the matter for discussion on Wednesday.
The proposals on allowances made by the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) given last year were referred to an expert committee headed by finance secretary Ashok Lavasa who submitted his report in April. The panel had suggested modifications, which were then referred to an Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) for final approval by the Union Cabinet.

Cabinet likely to finalise central govt employees' allowances next week

The Union Cabinet is likely to take a call on the allowance structure of central government employees soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi returns from his four-nation foreign visit.  This could come to pass on June 7, media reports suggest.
The recommendations of Committee on Allowances, led by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa, were to be taken up in a meeting of the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) scheduled yesterday (June 1).
Yesterday's meeting focused on House Rent Allowance (HRA) rates. The 7th Central Pay Commission had brought down the HRA to 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent for Class X, Y and Z cities respectively, which had the central government employees miffed.
