HRA Matter in the Meeting of Committee on Allowances

Meeting of Committee on Allowances took place on 28th March, 2017, discussion on Allowances remained inconclusive.

Issue of House Rent Allowance didn’t come up during meeting

I met Cabinet Secretary/GOI & urged him for early resolution of pending demands of Railwaymen that includes NPS, early disbursal of Allowances of 7th Pay Commission, Increase in Minimum wages and fitment formula. Issue of MACP was also discussed and removal of the provision of benchmark ‘Very Good’ for MACP

The General Secretaries,

All Affiliated Unions,
Dear Comrades!

Sub: Meeting of Committee on Allowances held today remained inconclusive

Meeting of Committee on Allowances took place on 28th March, 2017, discussion on Allowances remained inconclusive. Issue of House Rent Allowance didn’t come up during meeting.

I met Cabinet Secretary/GOI & urged him for early resolution of pending demands of Railwaymen that includes NPS, early disbursal of Allowances of 7th Pay Commission, Increase in Minimum wages and fitment formula. Issue of MACP was also discussed and removal of the provision of benchmark ‘Very Good’ for MACP, which has been recommended from ‘Good’ to ‘Very Good’ by the 7th Pay Commission, has also been demanded. Though Cabinet Secretary has given positive assurance on our demands yet we need our rank and file to be prepared for persistent struggle.

With Good Wishes!

Yours Faithfully

  1. Whether the great leaders have any idea as to when the Allowance Committee would submit its report.? If the present attitude of the committee is of any indication, HRA not yet discussed,it is likely to prolong to this full year. The government has fully understood that these leaders are not for any serious struggle.
    When the Confederation went on a heroic one day strike on 16-03-2017 against the betrayal of the Group of Ministers, some people even propagated that the Allowance Committee has already submitted its report and central government employees will be benefited. What for? Only to dissuade some employees from participation in the strike.
