7th CPC Expected HRA and Arrears Calculator 2017

Estimated online tool to calculate 7th CPC HRA arrears for Central Government Employees

Although the government had implemented the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission with effect from January 1, 2016 onwards, various allowances, including the House Rent Allowance, were being calculated and given as per the basic salaries of the Sixth Pay Commission. Nearly 14 months have passed, but the government is maintaining its callous attitude towards allowances by not making any announcements in this regard.

The BJP-led government is defending its inaction by claiming that the recommendations of the previous Sixth Pay Commission were implemented 32 months (January 2006 to August 2008) after the report was submitted.

New allowances based on the recommendations of the Allowance Committee Report are expected to be implemented from April 1, 2017 onwards. Unconfirmed sources say that the HRA could be increased to 10, 20 and 30 percent of the basic salaries of the Seventh Pay Commission. They claim that confusion prevails on whether the announcement would be given retrospective effect. The Central Government Employees Federation is demanding that the allowance arrears be paid from January 1, 2016 onwards.

Meanwhile, the Central Government employees are eager to know what their HRA increment is likely to be. Also, in case arrears are given, they also want to know how much it would be.

We have designed a simple Online Calculator to find out the HRA increment and arrears. To find out your increment and arrears, all you have to do is enter your basic salary and HRA percentage according to the Sixth Pay Commission, as on December 31, 2015.

Owning a House Becomes Easier for Army Personnel

1. Army personnel by virtue of deployment in remote areas find it extremely difficult to invest time in buying a good house, therefore, to fulfill this essential need and meet the aspirations, AWHO has come up with a pragmatic business model called the ‘Private Industry Collaborative Business Model’ which will facilitate acquiring houses from reputed private builders at discounted prices for Army personnel & Veer Naris. A Pilot Project is being undertaken in Delhi/ NCR and based on its success, similar ventures will be executed in other locations.

2. Major advantages of this concept are detailed market research to identify the most suitable builder/ project, negotiations for price reduction, due diligence and buyer friendly terms & conditions. Prop Equity, a leading Real Estate Data & Analytics Consultant firm has been selected after a prolonged process to undertake the facilitation process forward.

3. This historical MoU was signed by Lt Gen Rakesh Sharma, UYSM, AVSM, VSM, Chairman (Ex-Officio) AWHO and Mr Samir Jasuja, MD, Prop Equity Analytics on 3rd Mar 2017.
