  • Households with destitutes or those living on alms is over 6.68 lakh
  • As many as 4.08 lakh households rely on rag-picking.
  • Higher HRA for bank employees: Employees in the below-mentioned upgraded centres would get the revised/higher HRA rates and receive the arrears from 2011.

In addition, in various towns and cities, number of small places in the outskirts have been brought as part of the bigger town/city/UA and such places would also attract the higher HRA of the concerned town/city/Urban Agglomeration.

With greetings,

Yours Comradely,

Deplorable DOUBLE STANDARDS of the Govt.towards PSBs' Officers and Employees must be exposed by the CITU, AITUC, INTUC, BMS. What about those 30%, 20%, and 10% HRA of government servants ? Same country. Same places. But, for BANKERS, THE HRA is the poorest. Atleast now, the AIBOC must raise it's voice and must achieve betterment.
