Re: HRA For IAS Officers
Working for IAS (Indian Administrative Services) is not only the most well-known government job, it is also one of the most prestigious jobs in India.
The 7th pay commission brought about a lot of changes within the pay structure and allowances of IAS.
HRA is one of the most important factors of the overall allowances received by government employees.
The percentage of House Rents allowance that is given by government is now reduced to a considerable extent for all category central government employees.
The present rate of HRA is offered as 24%, 16% and 8% accordingly on the class X, Y and Z cities.
The HRA is allowed even if a government employee lives in his/her own house.
With the house rent allowance facility, central pay commission encouraged the property owners for renting the properties and also reduce the shortage of dwellings.
Instead of the existing 3 categories for the house rent, there will be four categories made this time and the major X class cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Ahmadabad, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Pune and Kolkata where employees were getting 30% above their basic salary as HRA.
The employees who are posted at the Y class cities, covers more than 90 stations, they were receiving 30% of the basic salary instead of 20%.
In other areas the house rent allowance were 10% of the basic pay that is the existing rate of HRA of the Z category cities.
The present qualifying threshold for the overall population for HRA is 50 Lakh for the X class cities, 5-50 lakh for the Y category cities and below 5 lakh for the Z category cities.
The salary bill of government employees is going to rise by 9.56% after the implementation of recommendations made by 7th pay commission.
