Around 30% pay hike, 5-6% annual increment likely to be in 7th CPC report.

Five to six per cent annual pay hike of Central Government employees is likely to be linked to tangible performance criterion. Under-performers are likely to be retired by 55 or 30 years of service, according to the Seventh Pay Commission report to be submitted soon.
The overall hike being recommended by former Justice A K Mathur-headed 7th Pay Commission is around 30 per cent. The Central Government employees are scheduled to get salary hikes on the basis of the recommendations by January 1, 2016. According to sources, the house rent allowance too would see an increase by 20 per cent. But the most significant recommendation is that 5 to 6 per cent of the annual increment would be performance-based. There is also likely to be a provision of retiring underperforming employees by the age of 55 or 30 years of service, whichever is more. “The Commission has spoken to all stake-holders and the recommendations are ready. We are expecting to submit the report any time soon,” sources said.
Set up by the erstwhile UPA government in February 2014, the Seventh Pay Commission was given a four-month extension by the NDA Government. Its term is till December 31. The commission may also raise salary-levels of PSU employees. The Sixth Pay Commission led to a six percentage point increase in dearness allowance for Central government employees from 16 to 22 per cent. The commission’s recommendations are usually accepted by the government with minor adjustments.

Fake news of D.A. merger
A fake news of D.A. merger has become viral in social media in the last couple of days. It is being cleared for our viewers that these news (of fake orders) have no authenticity at all and as the commission is at it's final stage and report is awaited at any time, it will be most unlikely that Govt. will adopt any interim measure at this point of time.

Central Govt. issued order for D.A. with effect from 01.07.2015

The union cabinet had decided on 9 September, to release an additional installment of DA and dearness relief (DR) to pensioners with effect from 1 July 2015. Thus, the central government employees as well as pensioners are entitled for DA/DR at the rate of 119% of the basic with effect from 1 July 2015.
In this regard Ministry of Finance issued order on 23rd Sep for payment of enhanced D.A. alongwith the arrears from 1st July'15 to serving employees in cash.

Higher house rent allowance expected in 7th CPC report

Following article has been published in a popular website, "The Sen Times" today.
"The Seventh Pay Commission is likely to propose to increase House Rent Allowance (HRA) of central government employees, besides their basic salaries.
By giving House Rent Allowance hikes, the Pay Commission is likely to seek to encourage property owners to rent out their properties, reduce the shortage of dwellings and to provide ‘housing for all central government employees’.
Besides the basic salary, a large portion of central government employees’ salary is the House Rent Allowance; some changes will be made in that category this time.
Instead of the existing three areas for house rent, four are likely to be created. ‘X’ class cities Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune, where employees will get 40 percent of their basic salary as House Rent Allowance (HRA), increasing from the existing 30 percent.

OROP : Govt worked out details, likely to announce within a couple of days

The Narendra Modi government is set to announce the one-rank, one pension package that will kick in from July 2014 ‎and use 2013 as the base year for calculations.
But it will stick to its position on a five year reset clause for veterans — as against 10 years for civilians — factoring in the complications resulting from a quicker adjustment. The ex-servicemen had demanded an annual adjustment.
The pension for veterans of the same rank and those who retire with full pensionable service, will be the average of the maximum and minimum paid. But to protect any retired servicemen from losing out, there will be an additional safeguard to ensure that those who are already drawing above the average would not impacted.
