This implies that in cases where there is no promotion/ between 01/01/2016 to 30/06/2016 option to opt from 07/2016 thereby forgoing the arrears from 01/01/2016 to 30/06/2016 in addition to opting from 01/01/2016.

Provision of para 15 of Min. of Finance Gazette notification dated 25.07.2016 may also be referred.

Percentage of HRA in 7th pay commission after cabinet approval

The Pay commission has recommended HRA should be rationalized by using the factor 0.8 which is used for rationalising the percentage based allowances. The 7th CPC recommended 24 percent, 16 percent and 8 percent of the Basic Pay for Class X, Y and Z cities respectively. The Commission also recommended that the rate of HRA will be revised to 27 percent, 18 percent and 9 percent when DA crosses 50 percent, and further revised to 30 percent, 20 percent and 10 percent when DA crosses 100 percent.
The cabinet committee reviewed the recommendations on Allowances and they are not able to give a decision over the Allowances. Hence the Union Cabinet decided to constitute a Committee headed by Finance Secretary for further examination of the recommendations of 7th CPC on Allowances. And it is said that the Committee will complete its work in a time bound manner and submit its reports within a period of 4 months.
