Risk and Hardship Matrix in 7th Pay Commission

Hardship allowance policy and calculation

On the basis of pay bands of the govt. employees, the hardship allowance is calculated. The rate of hardship allowance is calculated with the help of one hardship matrix. This provides a chart of the different rates of risk and hardship calculations which will be implemented such as low or medium or high, depending on the nature of job. The newly proposed risk and hardship matrix has two fields – Risk and Hardship, having parameters low, medium and high. The matrix is divided into nine cells with one extra cell in the top of the matrix which will be specific to Siachen Allowance only, which is provided to those defense personnel performing tuff duty at the Siachen Glacier.

  • RH-MAX will only be provided to those defense personnel deputed at Siachen Glacier. Jawans and JCOs (Below level 8) will get Rs. 21,000 per month as risk and hardship allowance. Where as senior officers above Level 9 will get Rs. 31,500 per month as Siachen Allowance.
  • This allowance was limited to Rs. 14,000 before 7th CPC which was very low compared to the risks involved in the service.
  • The rates of the risk and hardship allowances will get incremented after the Dearness allowance gets more than 50 %. Most of the hardship allowances has the fitment factor of 1.5 by this the allowance is calculated.
