lavasa panel

The Ashok Lavasa Committee was constituted in June last year after the government implemented the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission.

Now the latest news is, the commission has submitted its recommendations to the finance ministry today.

Further, the group’s final report has also looked towards modifying the existing rates of allowances such as the House Rent allowance and the dearness allowance. According to the propositions, depending on the city of residence, the HRA will be paid at a rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent respectively, of the current basic pay.

We never know what the parliament will approve, however, we give a list below what the committee would  have agreed or recommended… (purely from sources)
