HRA Revision from July 2016 for CG Employees
7th Pay Commission recommendatoins were implemented from 1.1.2016 to all group of Central Government Employees and Officers. The Government’s Gazette Notification issued only on 29th June 2016. From July 2016 revised pay as per 7th CPC given to all employees and the arrears for 6 months also given.
But the Commission in its recommendation reduced these rates to 8,16 and 24%. Though it has been justified with various reasons by 7th CPC, it disappointed the CG employees. Since CG Employees felt that only these reduced rates will be paid for next ten years, their demand to restore the old rates started gaining big support. As a result of this, all the Staff associations and Federations pressurized the Government to increase the rate of HRA and it was included in charter of 7th CPC demands.
