Recently many Govt Servants raising the questions that whether any order will be issued for HRA Increase after 50 Percent DA. Let’s delve into the details to shed light on this matter.

Unlocking the Mysteries of HRA Increase after 50 Percent DA : No Separate Order required.

Navigating the intricacies of government orders and regulations can often feel like deciphering a cryptic code. However, when it comes to crucial matters such as the increase in House Rent Allowance (HRA), clarity and understanding are paramount. In recent times, questions have arisen regarding the protocol surrounding the escalation of HRA rates in conjunction with the rise in Dearness Allowance (DA) . When DA Reached 28% , the Office of Controller General of Accounts has sought clarification from the Department of Expenditure regarding the necessity of a separate order for granting increased HRA.

Understanding the Clarification regarding HRA Increase

The Department of Expenditure, through its ID Note No.2/5/2017-E.II(B) Pt, dated 04.08.2021, has provided crucial clarification. According to this clarification, no separate order is deemed necessary for the increase in HRA when DA reaches the stipulated level i.e 25% and 50% Level. The directive from the Department of Expenditure dated 07.07.2017 has laid out explicit guidelines concerning the augmentation of HRA corresponding to the escalation of DA.

Implications for Departments

The ramifications of this clarification are significant for various departments. It eliminates the need for departments to await a separate order for increasing HRA rates to the final slab. With the DA reaching the stipulated thresholds of 25% and 50%, the HRA increase automatically comes into effect. Departments are thereby empowered to expedite the process of adjusting HRA rates in alignment with the prevailing DA levels.

Streamlining Administrative Procedures

By obviating the requirement for a separate order, the administrative procedures associated with HRA adjustments are streamlined. As per the above Clarification , Now the Department has to increase the HRA rates to 10%, 20% and 30% as the rate of DA reached 50% Level w.e.f 1.1.2024 without waiting for further Orders

It is now very clear that No Specific order is required from nodal Ministry to increase HRA and other Allowances after DA reaches 50 Percent Level
