7th pay commission HRA: With Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi clearing the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission on allowances with some modifications, more than 48 lakh Central government employees are expecting HRA hike from 1st July. The employees will start getting HRA hike in the range of 106 per cent to 157 per cent effective from this month, according to a report in Zee News. In a bonanza to 48 lakh central government employees, the Union Cabinet on June 28 approved recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission with 34 modifications which will impose an additional annual burden of Rs 30,748 crore on the national exchequer. The increased allowances, which came into effect from July 1, 2017, is based on the recommendations of the Committee on Allowances (CoA). The allowances as recommended by the 7th CPC would have cost the exchequer Rs 29,300 crore. The modified allowances approved by the Union Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi will increase the burden by Rs 1,448 crore to Rs 30,748 crore per annum.

Sharing details, Jaitley said the Pay Commission had recommended reduction in the HRA rates to 24 per cent for X, 16 per cent for Y and 8 per cent for Z category of cities. “As the HRA at the reduced rates may not be sufficient for employees falling in lower pay bracket, it has been decided that HRA will not be less than Rs 5400, Rs 3600 and Rs 1800 for X, Y and Z category of cities respectively. “This floor rate has been calculated at 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent of the minimum pay of Rs 18,000. This will benefit more than 7.5 lakh 1 to 3 levels of employees,” he said.

HRA under current structure

House Rent Allowance (HRA) is currently paid at 30 per cent for X (population of 50 lakh and above), 20 per cent for Y (5-50 lakh) and 10 per cent for Z (below 5 lakh) category of cities.

Briefing the media after the Cabinet meeting, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had said that the modifications are based on suggestions made by the CoA in its report submitted to the Finance Minister on April 27, and the Empowered Committee of Secretaries set up to screen the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission.

                  any news paper or tv channels should analise before printing false news. is it justice to CG employees for not giving arrears. any news paper or channel can ask central govt. the problem is not with govt. but it is with news channels

                          This is not sufficient as in any of the B class city the HRA is not sufficient to hire even a flat of 1200 Sq Ft. covered area. Most of US do not need HRA let the government provide house to all employees at least to Central Government.

                              Its sad to see that media is biased and reports inaccurate and hyped news to sell news. Reproters do not have capabilities to research and give the accurate mindsets of beneficiaries.

                                        What's so great? The HRA should have been effective from 01-01-2016. When certain people who think they are privileged get life long pension for their 5 year sitting n travelling with public money. Where as for some one worked/ working hiking pay appeared tobe burden n publicized negatively. This is the Dharma says _______

                                              Don't miss lead the people, HRA has not been reduced, only the percentage has been reduced. Even this increase also can not be justified if you see the productivity of government employees generates. It is unfortunate that still you people are fuming against the reasonable good ry you people are getting.
