7th Pay Commission report: Are you a Central government employee and have been waiting for updates on higher allowances recommended by the 7th Pay Commission report? Relax, your wait is going to be over soon. According to various media reports, updates on revised allowance structure for Central government employees are expected to be announced in the coming week. The Empowered Committee of Secretaries is likely to meet soon before presenting the report to the Union Cabinet.

The Committee on Allowances – headed by Ashok Lavasa, Finance Secretary and Secretary (Expenditure) and constituted by the Ministry of Finance to examine the 7th CPC recommendations on allowances – had submitted its report to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the last week of April. The decision to set up the Committee was taken in view of significant changes recommended by the 7th CPC in the allowances structure and a large number of representations received in this regard from various Staff Associations as well as the apprehensions conveyed by various ministries / departments. The 7th CPC had recommended that of a total of 196 allowances, 52 be abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming them in another allowance.

The Committee took note of all the representations received from various stakeholders on the 7th CPC recommendations on allowances. Representations and demands for modifications were received in respect of 79 allowances which have been examined in detail by the Committee. In doing so, the Committee interacted with all the members of the Standing Committee of National Council (Staff Side), Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) as well the representatives of various staff associations of railways, postal employees, doctors, nurses, and Department of atomic Energy. It also interacted with the representatives of the Defence Forces, DGs of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) as also senior officers from IB and SPG to understand the viewpoint of their personnel.

Based on such extensive stakeholder consultations and detailed examination, the Committee had suggested certain modifications in the 7th CPC recommendations so as to address the concerns of the stakeholders in the context of the rationale behind the recommendations of the 7th CPC as well as other administrative exigencies. Modifications have been suggested in some allowances which are applicable universally to all employees as well as certain other allowances which apply to specific employee categories such as railway men, postal employees, scientists, defence forces personnel, doctors and nurses, etc.

The report, being examined in the Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance, was scheduled to be placed before the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) set up to screen the 7th CPC recommendations and to firm up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet.

It may be recalled that while recommendations of the 7th CPC on pay and pension were implemented with the approval of Cabinet, allowances continue to be paid at old rates. After consideration by the E-CoS, the proposal for implementation of 7th CPC recommendations on allowances after incorporating the modifications suggested by the Committee on Allowances in its report shall be placed before the Cabinet for approval.

    Try to give the 7 CPC report to few other committees of central govt so that the implementation of 7 CPC can be postponed to few more months and govt can save lot of money by foo central govt employees in this manner. I don't understand why the union's are keeping mum on all these non sense. Dear central govt please stop foo employees. Like Justice, Payment dela too is payment denied.
