  • It may be noted that the recommendations made by the VIth CPC on various allowances were implemented only from 1.9.2008,i.e. after 32 months. That may probably one of the be the reasons, Government need to take more time to study and implement at a later date.

  • As of now , serving employees will get 32 % of their basic pay (Pay in the PB plus Grade Pay) as fitment benefit on fixation of their revised pay in the VII th CPC scales. In the case of pensioners retired either on or after 1.1.2006 or retired prior to 1.1.2006 and whose revised pension was consolidated as on 1.1.2006 will also get the same 32 % of their pension as fitment benefit.
