7th Central Pay Commission Central Government Allowances (latest news)

After a long time, the government employees can heave a sigh of relief. The 7th Pay Commission was finally cleared with all its due allowances on June 28th with its effect starting from 1st July onwards. This singular move shall benefit over 50 lakh government employees. The modifications in the current allowances are made on the basis of the suggestions given by the Committee of Allowances (CoA). The final report was submitted by the CoA on 27th April, 2017.

Costs to the government

This move shall now increase the government expenses by Rs. 1448.23 crore per annum – which was the projected increase in expenditure post 7th Pay Commission. The government also implies that the additional charges might go a little above Rs. 29,300 crore per annum for all the other allowances and types of it. Therefore, the combined impact on government resources is Rs. 30748.23 crore per annum.

How changes in allowances were made?

There were total 197 allowances which were examined by the government. All of these allowances were distributed and examined under a three-pronged approach. During this, the officials assessed whether these allowances are necessary for livelihood or not. They also analyzed how each allowance fulfilled the need for each type of persons. Based on this, the allowances were clubbed together under similar objectives.

After all of these deductions it was decided that 54 allowances are no longer needed. Those that were not needed have been abolished and there were 37 more which were subsumed. These 37 new allowances are the ones which are going to see effect from this new regime. Hence the following changes were made –

  • Keeping in line with the inflation, the dearness allowance (DA) was raised under the 7th However some parts of the allowances like Transport Allowances (TAs) remained the same.
  • The rest of the allowances which were not linked to DA are raised by a factor of 1.5. Those allowances which constitute a percentage of the income were raised by a factor of 0.8.

Risk and Hardship Matrix

This is the new type of paradigm which has been created to look after the allowances that are linked to risk and hardship. This means that those jobs profiles which have a lot of risk and hardship associated with them (such as CAPF, Defense, etc.) are fitted into a different category. The allowance for this type of workforce comes under the table called Risk and Hardship Matrix.

There are rows and columns depicting the various levels of hardships and along with that there is RH-Max and Siachen Allowance that also shows the different categories. More than one rate is applicable for individuals who are placed under the different slab rates. But each of the multiple slab rates will get replaced by two slab rates.

Final changes approved by the Cabinet

Finally, the Cabinet approved the some changes in the provisions. These modifications were finalized by the E-CoS. But before that they had to pass through the stakeholders. It was the CoA that took their consultation before sending these representations through. From the staff’s side, the Joint Consultative Machinery was present there and several members of the staff association also took part in consultation. So the final impact on the allowances was that some of those which were very much needed for the administrative exigencies were kept intact. But the allowances were given much thought to appropriate their rationalization.

Highlights of the Changes in Allowances

  1. Some allowances are abolished and some subsumed

    There were 53 total allowances at first, out of which 12 were kept intact – which were initially going to be abolished. This is done keeping in line with some of the requirements under some specific organizations like Posts, Scientific Departments like Space and Atomic Energy, Railways, and so on. Then there comes the other 37 allowances. The government has decided that 3 out of them shall be subsumed and they will continue to exist as separate identities.

    This has been done because these allowances are unique and they serve a purpose for at least some part of the work force. Perhaps this is why these rates have been increased. So now these 3 types of allowances shall increase under the 7th There are, at present, 1 lakh employees who will get the benefit from this specific type of allowance. In this, there come the Railways, the Scientific Department, the Defence and Posts.

  2. Much awaited – House Rent Allowance

    There has been more talk about this type of allowance than about any other type. Currently, the HRA stands at 30% for X class cities (that is for cities that have a population of 50 lakh and above) and 20% for Y class cities (that is, for cities whose population ranges between 5 to 50 lakh) and 10% for Z class cities (this is mainly for village areas or small towns where the population is below 5 lakh).

    During the 7th CPC it was recommended that the existing HRA rates should come down to 24%, 16% and 8% for the X, Y and Z cities respectively. But it was later realized that if the HRA comes down then those employees who come under the low income bracket shall be at a great disadvantage. This is why the HRA should not be less than Rs. 5400, RS. 3600 and Rs. 1800 for X, Y and Z category cities respectively. So the government decided to set a minimum floor rate of 30%, 20% and 10% calculated over the minimum pay of Rs. 18,000.  With this singular move, the government shall benefit over 7.5 lakh employees who belong to only Level 1 to 3.

    Apart from this, the 7th CPC recommended that the HRA revisions shall come in two phases. The first one shall see a hike that brings it up to 27%, 18% and 9% respectively when the DA crosses 50%. In the next phase the HRA shall hike to 30%, 20% and 10% – if the DA happens to cross 100%. But since there is a rising rate of inflation, the Government has decided that the rates will further rise. When the DA crosses 25% and 50% then the HRA will also rise in future. This move will specifically help those individuals who do not reside in government accommodation and still get the HRA.

  3. Siachen Allowance

    We already told you about the RH-Max table right? This is where it comes into action. As per the 7th CPC, the Siachen Allowance goes straight into the RH-Max cell of the Risk and Hardship Matrix. There are two slabs for this type of allowance – Rs. 21,000 and Rs. 31,500. This is especially done because the officers or PBORs on the Siachen border take on a continued risk and have to face a lot of difficulty living in those conditions.

    This is the reason the government has now decided to enhance the Siachen Allowance. Currently the rates for this are Rs. 14,000 but after the implementation for the 7th CPC it will rise to Rs. 30,000 per month for the Jawans and the JCOs. This will be applicable from Rs. 21,000 for the Jawans and JCO s on Level 8 and below. It shall be Rs. 42,500 per month for the officers who are in level 9 and above.

    This means that from the 7th CPC onwards, the Siachen Allowance shall become twice than the existing rate. Hence the soldiers who are posted in the Siachen border from the Indian Army shall get a pay hike.

  4. Dress Allowance is introduced

    A dress allowance is nothing but the allowance that is given as Washing, Uniform, Kit Maintenance and Outfit. All of these different types of allowances have been subsumed and they are taken under one type of allowance which will now be called the Dress Allowance. This type of allowance shall have four slabs from now on – Rs. 5000, Rs. 10,000, Rs. 15,000 and also Rs. 20,000 per annum – differentiated according to the types of employees and their designation.

    This means that the Nurses shall get this allowance now on a monthly basis – because their profession requires them to maintain a high level of hygiene. Also, the SPG personnel shall get the Dress Allowance from now on because they are already getting the Uniform allowance. Right now the uniform allowance is higher than the rates that are recommended under the 7th Due to the specific requirements of the SPG personnel, they shall get this allowance benefit. But for others, their allowance shall depend on the specific clothing that they have to adorn.

  5. Tough Location Allowance

    Tough location allowance (TLA) is just what the name says – it is the type of allowance that is given to a specific person for living in areas which are difficult to survive in. It is a tad bit different from the Siachen allowance – which focuses mainly on the Siachen border, but the idea is the same. The allowances are raised keeping in mind the tough conditions that the people have to survive in, in these areas.

    At present the government has Special Compensatory Allowance for areas that are remote and there is Tribal Area Allowance, Sunderban Allowance and such things. The TLA has taken all of these allowances under one umbrella. The areas taken under TLA have been classified into three main categories (mentioned above). The rates under them have been mentioned under the Risk and Hardship table.  The range for TLAs is between Rs. 1000 and Rs. 5300 per month.

  6. Some more recommendations

    Some of the other allowances have also got some important recommendations. For example the Children Education Allowance (CEA) is now increased to Rs. 2250 per month per child (max. 2). It was Rs. 1500 earlier. The hostel subsidy shall also increase from Rs. 4500 per month to Rs. 6750 per month.

    This is not the only recommendation. Even the Special Allowance for Child care for Women with Disabilities is also increased from Rs. 1500 per month to Rs. 3000 per month. Other incentives like Higher Qualification incentive for the civilians has now been increased to Rs. 10,000 – Rs. 30,000 (grant). Earlier it was Rs. 2000 – Rs. 10,000.

Allowance Recommendations for the Uniformed Servicemen

This includes those in the Defence, Police, Indian coast guard, CAPFs, Coast Guards, Security Agencies and any other such department. The allowance for them has been taken into prime consideration. There are several things to notice in this –

  • Ration Money Allowance (RMA) :

The 7th CPC has recommended that the Ration Money Allowance (RMA) should be abolished – that the Defence officers should not get free ration as they do right now. Instead of that, the RMA is proposed to be directly paid to them in monetary terms. This is supposed to be more beneficial to the Defence officers and it will apparently benefit about 43000 officers.

  • Technical Allowance (Tier I and II):

This type of allowance is paid to the officers in the technical branches that is – of those that are in the Rs. 3000 and Rs. 4500 per month range. But according to the 7th CPC recommendation, the Tier II allowance under this category shall get merged with Higher Qualification Incentive (HQI).

While you may wonder why this changes, the reason is simple – defense needs more technological advancement. Hence, the government is implying that a better resource allocation towards the higher qualification category would improve the scientific edge the force has.

As per the latest announcements, the government is now keeping in pace with the Defence requirements which calls for a change and improvement in technologies used. This is why they will discontinue the Technical Allowance. It will be replaced with HQI instead. The list of courses for these allowances, however, will keep getting reviewed and they will improve in future.

  • Leave Travel Concession (LTC):

At present, the defense personnel serving in higher altitudes or CI Ops or in Field are given LTC. Right now one extra free railway warrant shall be extended to all of them. Such an extra warrant shall also be given to the Indian Coast Guard and the CAPFs.

The High Altitude Allowance shall be extended to Rs. 2700 to Rs. 25000 per month now. The Field Area Allowance increases to Rs. 6000 – Rs. 16900 per month in the revised schedule. However, the Ministry of Defence for Defence Personnel shall classify the field to grant this benefit. Similarly, the Counter Insurgency Ops allowance will now increase to Rs. 6000 to Rs. 16900 per month.

  • The MARCOS and Chariot Allowance shall also increase to Rs. 17300 to Rs. 25000 per month. The Sea Going Allowance shall also increase under these new criteria. It shall now range between Rs. 6000 and Rs. 10,500 per month. In addition to that, the conditionality for the Sea Going Allowance shall also decrease. Previously it used to be 12 hours, now it will be 4 hours.
  • Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (COBRA) Allowance granted to the CRPF personnel in the Naxalite areas shall also increase to a Rs. 17300 – Rs. 25000 per month. To the flying branch the Flying Allowance shall also increase to Rs. 17300 to Rs. 25000 per month now. This goes for the Air Wing in the BSF also.
  • HQI for Defence increases to Rs. 10,000 – 30,000 (Grant) range. Aeronautical allowance, which was earlier only given to the Indian Navy, has now been extended to the Indian Coast Guard. It has been slightly increased and now stands at Rs. 450 per month.
  • Test Pilot and Flight Test Engineer Allowance shall now follow the R&H matrix and it will increase to Rs. 4100 to Rs. 5300 per month. Some other allowances like the Territorial Army Allowance are now increased by Rs. 1000 – Rs. 2000 per month. The Deputation (Duty) Allowance is also increasing to Rs. 4500 – 9000 range per month.
  • The Para Jump Instructor Allowance rose to Rs. 6000 – 10,500 per month range. Also the detachment allowance increased to Rs. 405 to 1170 per day.
  • Lastly, it is the Special Incident or Investigation or Security Allowance that has got the biggest hit. It has got SPG revised from 27.5% to 55% – calculated over the basic pay and for both operational as well as non operational duties respectively.

Allowance Recommendations for Indian Railways

  • Rates of Additional Allowance are now increased from 500- 100 rupees range to Rs. 1125 – 2250 per month range. Also, this facility is now extended to t he Loco Pilot Goods and to the Senior Passenger Guards. They shall receive this at Rs. 750 per month.
  • The train controllers have a very strenuous job. Therefore, recognizing their efforts, a new allowance has been introduced for them which are at Rs. 5000 per month.

Important allowance announcements for Hospital

  • The current rate for Nursing Allowance has been increased to Rs. 7200 per month from Rs. 4800 per month. Also, the Rate of Operation Theatre allowance is now Rs. 540 per month.
  • The Rate of Hospital Patient Care Allowance, also called the Patient Care Allowance has been increased to Rs. 4100 to Rs. 5300 per month. The 7th CPC recommendations have now also been modified to an extent that it will be granted to Ministerial staff now.

Allowances for Pensioners – Recommended under 7th CPC

  • The rate of Fixed Medical Allowance (FMA) is now Rs. 1000 per month. It has got a 500 rupees hike. It will benefit those central government employees who are not availing CGHS facility – about 5 lakh pensioners.
  • The rate of Constant Attendance Allowance is raised from Rs. 4500 per month to Rs. 6750 per month for 100 per cent disablement.

Allowances for the Scientific Departments

  • The rate of Launch Campaign and Space Technology Allowance has seen a hike from Rs. 7500 per annum to Rs. 11250 per annum. The professional update allowance for non-gazetted employees is also now being paid at the hiked rate of Rs. 11250 per annum. Also, the previous recommendations suggesting that the Launch Campaign Allowance and Space Technology Allowance should be abolished – has not been accepted. This is because the government is now stressing upon the importance of science and tech.
  • Also, the scientists and the other crew members who are taking up the expedition to go Antarctica were initially being given Antarctica Allowance under Risk and Hardship allowance program. In fact this program was supposed to have a special mention under the RH-Max cell.
  • The rates recommended for this program are lesser than the existing rates which are being paid on daily basis. However, to appropriate the rates and to allow it to increase, it is finally decided that this rate will stay out of the RH Max cell. This is why they are currently being paid on a daily basis at the rate of Rs. 1125 (summer) – 1688 (winter) to Rs. 1500 (summer) to Rs. 2000 (winters).

Allowances for the Department of Posts

Earlier it was recommended that the cycle allowance to postmen and trackmen in Railways should be abolished. But this recommendation has not been accepted. This is why this allowance is still pertaining for the postmen under Department of Posts and for trackmen who are working in Railways. In fact, the rate of Cycle allowance has now been doubled. It has been increased from Rs. 90 per month to Rs. 180 per month. This will have a direct impact on 22200 employees.

Conclusion

Although several different departments will get the benefits of this pay hike, the one that will benefit the most is the Defence department. There are many allowances and improved conditionality for them. The total number of allowances for this department along with railways, nursing and posts is 197 to 128. The government has showed that it is placing great concern over the current scenario of defence and the state of affairs of the country. Nearly several thousand government employees have been looking forward to this change and it has finally come in this form.
