Proposal to hike salary likely to be placed in Cabinet by next week
The Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) has submitted its report on higher allowances like House Rent Allowance (HRA), Dearness Allowance (DA) and Transport Allowance (TA) under 7th Pay Commission (7th CPC) to Union Cabinet, sources told Alok Priyadarshi.
Not meeting the demand of the central government employees, E-CoS recommended HRA slab ranging between 25%-27% of the basic as against demands of 30%, 20% and 10%.
7th CPC had recommended house rent allowance (HRA) to be paid at the rate of 24%, 16% and 8% of the new Basic Pay, depending on the type of cities.
