7th Pay Commission: Modi government has given a new update to increase HRA, the salary of government employees will increase so much

7th Pay Commission:  The Modi government has recently increased the Dearness Allowance (DA) of central government employees. Since then, the employees are also demanding to increase the HRA. However, if media reports are to be believed, the government is also considering increasing the HRA. The central government can give another surprise to the employees by the end of this month. After DA, the government can also increase other allowances including House Rent Allowance soon.

The last hike in HRA was seen in July last year. Then the DA had crossed the 25% mark. At that time the government had increased the DA to 28 percent. Now that the government has increased DA, then HRA can also be revised. If the HRA is increased, then there can be a big increase in the salary of government employees.

HRA will increase so much

According to media reports, the HRA of government employees may soon increase to 3%. Employees in X category cities may see a 3% hike in their HRA, while Y category cities may see a 2% hike in their allowances. Apart from this, the HRA of employees in Z category cities can also increase by up to 1%. That is, the HRA of government employees will increase from 27% to 30% in the best case scenario.

This is how HRA is decided

HRA for government employees is determined by the category of the city in which they work. These are the three categories X, Y and Z. Class X employees are getting HRA at the rate of 27% of their basic salary. The Y category gets HRA at the rate of 18 to 20 percent. Whereas, Z category gets HRA at the rate of 9 to 10 per cent. This rate varies by area and city.
