The Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) is likely to deliberate on the recommendations of the Ashok Lavasa panel report tomorrow and subsequently present it to the Union cabinet for the final approval.

Central government employees’ representatives, miffed with the long delay in implementation of allowances, met on Tuesday to discuss the same.








At the meeting of the National Council (Staff side) Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM), several issues were taken up, including the proposed slash in House Rent Allowance by the Seventh Pay Commission.

The JCM said it will wait for a week or two before it decides on the future course of action if Narendra Modi government were to further delay the implementation of revised allowances.

As Central government employees wait for some positive news on revised allowances,here’s a list of the 53 allowances the Seventh Pay Commission recommended doing away with and the 36 allowances that could be subsumed into bigger ones.
