After a long wait, hundreds of thousands of central government employees have received a 28% dear allowance increase on their base salary. As a result, the rent allowance (HRA) for central government employees has also increased. Central government employees’ September salaries will now include twice as much money.
With the increase in DA, the government also ordered an increase in the rent allowance (HRA) for central government employees. According to the rules, HRA is increasing because DA exceeds 25%. Therefore, the central government also decided to raise the HRA to 27%.
On July 7, 2017, the Department of Expenditure ordered that the HRA be revised when the DA exceeds 25%. Since July 1st, the Dearness Allowance has increased to 28% and the HRA also needs to be revised.
By government order, HRA is divided into three categories, X, Y and Z, by city. After the revision, the HRA for cities in the X category will be 27% of the base salary, as well as the HRA for cities in the Y category will be 18%. In contrast to 9% of the base salary, it is 9% of the base salary in cities in the Z category.
According to the salary matrix of the 7th Salary Commission, the minimum basic salary for central government employees is 18,000 rupees. With this base salary of 18,000 rupees, central government officials had a DA of 3060 rupees at a rate of 17% until June 2021. Since July 2021, central government officials have begun to earn Rs5040 monthly, according to a 28% DA. This means that the employee’s monthly salary has an increment of 1980 rupees. Therefore, the pension of the pensioner is also determined.
