7th CPC Expected HRA Calculator 2016
7th Central Pay Commission has recommended to reduce the percentage of House Rent Allowance. Since the CG Employees didn’t expect this development, they showed their resentment through agitations. Federation raised this issue in all negotiating forums before the Govt.
Seeing the resentment over Allowances including HRA, the Central Government agreed to constitute a High Level committee to examine the Allowances. Accordingly, FM revealed in the Parliament that the Committee has been constituted on 22.07.2016 and the first meeting of the Committee has been held on 04.08.2016. And the Committee has been asked to submit its report within four months.
It is said that there are possibilities to recommend two types of increase in respect of HRA. A simple calculator is prepared for CG Staff to know the amount of increase in HRA as per these two proposal.
The proposed HRA rates mentioned here is not Final and not approved. It is an assumption. The Final Decision on HRA will be taken by Govt after the Committee submits its report.
