Good news for Puducherry Govt employees - Enhanced HRA

PUDUCHERRY : Employees of the territorial government will be entitled to enhanced House Rent Allowance from this month, with the central government upgrading the status of the regions constituting the Union Territory.

All along, Puducherry was treated with C status. Based on the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission, the earlier classification has been revised and it has now been sanctioned B2 status, official sources said.

The B2 status (now called a city under `Y` classification) conferred on Puducherry city would entitle government staff to get an increase in HRA from 7.5 per cent to 20 per cent this month.

The Centre had accepted the Puducherry Urban Agglomeration which projected more than 5.2 lakh population to sanction revised status for the city.

Government staff working in other `unclassified` areas like Karaikal, Mahe and Yanam, which are accorded `Z` category status as per the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission would be entitled to get HRA at 10 per cent from this month against 5 per cent they were getting all along, they said.

PMK MP M Ramadoss, in a press release, thanked Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram for raising the status of Puducherry B two category by considering Urban Agglomeration for the criterion of population.
