7th Pay Commission Update: The central government can once again please the employees. The government can announce to increase in the House Rent Allowance (HRA) in the last week of this month. Let us know how much salary will be after this increase.
Central employees can get good news again this month. Modi government is preparing to give gifts to its employees. According to the information, in the last week of this month, along with the DA hike, the HRA hike may be announced.
Earlier in Diwali, the Modi government had increased the Dearness Allowance (DA) of the employees by 3 percent. Now there is a discussion that the central government can once again please the employees. The government is considering increasing the House Rent Allowance (HRA) along with DA.
The Finance Ministry has started brainstorming to implement the House Rent Allowance (HRA) of more than 11.56 lakh employees. A proposal has also been sent to the Railway Board for approval of this proposal. If this proposal is approved, then the employees will get HRA. Let us tell you that the Indian Railway Technical Supervisors Association and the National Federation of Railwaymen are demanding to implement HRA from January 1, 2021. After increasing the house rent allowance, there will be a bumper increase in the salary.
How much will be the ‘House Rent Allowance’
Let us tell you that the cities whose population is more than 50 lakhs come under the ‘X’ category. At the same time, those whose population is more than 5 lakhs, fall in the ‘Y’ category. And cities with a population of fewer than 5 lakhs come under the ‘Z’ category. The minimum HRA for all three categories will be Rs 5400, 3600, and Rs 1800. According to the Department of Expenditure, when the Dearness Allowance reaches 50 percent, the maximum House Rent Allowance will increase to 30 percent. But this is possible only when DA will is beyond 50 percent. Because according to the old order of the government, if the DA crosses 50 percent, then the HRA will be 30 percent, 20 percent, and 10 percent.
