7th Pay Commission: Central gov employees likely to get revised allowances from Jul
New Delhi: Central government employees may start getting revised allowances under the Seventh Pay Commission from July.
For nearly 50 lakh government employees, the wait for allowances has been particularly long considering the pay commission’s recommendations were cleared by the Narendra Modi cabinet in June last year.
Allowances and specifically the reduction in House Rent Allowance (HRA), by the Seventh Pay Commission had irked Central government employees.
A committee was formed under Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa to review the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission in July, and since then employees have been waiting to hear from the government on updates.
