Dear Sir,
This is in continuation of the discussions, the Staff Side had with you on 1st September, 2016. We send herewith brief notes on the allowances, which are required to be retained or wherever the quantum has to be enhanced.
As presented before the Committee, we have dealt with the subject in the following manner:-
(i) General Allowances, which are of general nature, covering the Central Government employees across the Departments.(10)
(ii) Area Specific Allowances – The allowances which are granted to all Central Government employees who are posted to a particular location.(2)
(iii) Department Specific Allowances which are granted to a section of the employees in a Department/Ministry taking into account the special nature of jobs assigned to them. (4)
We have received the notes from the Postal, Defence and Railway Organisations. We have requested the Associations/Federations of other departments to send us the notes in the matter. We hope to receive the same soon. As and when the same is received, it will be submitted.
We have endorsed a copy of this letter to the Joint Secretary(Implementation Cell). We have also asked the Departmental Associations to submit their notes on the Department Specific Allowances to the Implementation Cell as also to their Heads of Departments. We request you to kindly convene the meeting of the Committee to discuss the allowances on which Notes are presented to you through this letter.

Comradely yours

    We were getting 30% HRA on the pre revised basic pay only. The VII CPC recommended 24% HRA on the pre revised Basic Pay +125% D.A + Fitment benefit which forms the revised basic pay at 2.57 factor under VII CPC.. This 24% on VII CPC basic pay actually comes to more than double the HRA amount we were already drawing under VI CPC. Why don’t you people understand this. Because of your foolish protest our HRA at the new rate is delayed for which the employees associations should be held solely responsible.
