All allowances (except Dearness Allowance) to Central Government Employees - Questions in Parliament

Allowances to Government Employees

In Lok Sabha on 18.11.2016, the Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley has replied in a written form regarding the allowances to Central Government employees recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission. The complete text of the reply is reproudced and given below for your information...

"In view of the number of representations received with regard to substantial changes with the existing provisions relating to Allowances recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission, the Government has set up a Committee to examine the recommendations of the Commission on allowances (except Dearness Allowance). The Committee has been asked to go into the recommendations of the Commission on various allowances and, having regard to the representations made by the staff associations as also the suggestions of the concerned Ministries/Departments and to make recommendations as to whether any changes in the recommendations of the Commission are warranted and, if so, in what form. Till a final decision is taken by the Government based on the recommendations of this Committee, all allowances (except Dearness Allowance) will continue to be paid at existing rates in the existing pay structure. The Committee, constituted vide order dated 22.7.2016, is to submit its report within four months. 

The Committee has been interacting with various stake-holders to discuss their demands and has so far held discussions with National Council (Staff Side), Joint Consultative Machinery, representatives from staff associations and officials from Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Ministry of Home Affairs and Department of Posts. The Committee may also interact with the representatives of some other major Ministries/Departments and stakeholders with whom consultations are yet to be held before finalizing its Report. On submission of the Report, the matter pertaining to allowances will be considered by the Government and appropriate decision will be taken thereafter." 


regarding the allowances to the central govt. employees, it is suggested to first increase the basic of the low paid staff in P.B.1 so that the gap between P.B.1 and P.B.4 is reduced. 18000 is very less basic for the starter and 250000 is at the highest side.
a number of govt. quarters in various organisations are lying vacant due to no occupancy and high house rent allowances. thus house rent allowance should not be increased abnormally rather the same amount be adjusted in other type of allowances viz. CEA, Honorarium, increments and special Dearness Allowance.
Further recruitments to the needies should be increased with the saved amounts. there is a lot of problems of the unemplooyements
