WIth the Cabinet set to approve higher allowances and HRA as per the 7th Pay Commission, the big question is whether the government would first rollout the GST. The issue has been pending for over one year now. With the rollout round the corner there are several aspects that the 1 crore central government employees must keep in mind. Here are some calculators that you must keep handy.







What is the government thinking Multiple sources that OneIndia spoke with say that the government does not want any more delay. The matter would have been sorted out this month, but owing to the foreign visits by both the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, there was a delay. However it is almost confirmed that the Cabinet meeting to be held on July 5 will take a final call on the issue.

Why there is another delay While it was anticipated that the June 28 Cabinet meeting would clear the higher allowances and HRA, there could be a slight delay due to the GST. The government is putting all its focus on the GST roll out on July 1, India’s biggest tax reform since Independence. Sources assured that the matter will not be delayed beyond July 5.
