The Staff Side in the 47th Meeting of the National Council (JCM) have raised the issue of delay in issuing Government orders for revision of Night Duty Allowance and Risk Allowance in 7th CPC Pay Scale w.e.f. 01.07.2017, even though the Cabinet has already approved the same. We were assured by the Official Side that the proposal is under process and necessary Government orders would be issued very soon. However, even after a period of more than 5 months the Government orders for revising Night Duty Allowance and Risk Allowance in 7th CPC Pay Scale w.e.f. 01.07.2017 has not yet been issued. The affected employees are repeatedly representing to this Office in this regard. Therefore, we request you to kindly arrange to issue necessary Government orders the above two allowances in 7th CPC Pay Scale w.e.f. 01.07.2017.
