There are a few modifications that have been suggested in some allownaces applicable to all central government employees and other allowances which are applicable to specific employee categories.

A massive protest would be organised on May 23 by the Confederation of central government employees against the delay in implementing the allowance hike as per the revised 7th Pay Commission recommendations. The Confederation along with the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) has demanded that the government implements their demands at the earliest. The protest is expected to a major one and will be held on May 23. The unions have been raising some core issues.
