"Allowance committee kept HRA unchanged - 30/20/10 percent" -Sources

The 10-month long wait of central government employees and pensioners for allowances is about to end as the Narendra Modi government is expected to  announce a maximum HRA hike of up to 178 percent for them soon.
A high-level committee headed by the Finance Secretary, Ashok Lavasa, on Thursday submitted its report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
If sources are to be believed, the committee on allowances has given its view in favour of employees by recommending against altering the existing HRA rates.
One of the major concerns for employees was the Seventh Pay Commission recommendation, regarding decrease in house rent allowance (HRA) by 2-6 percent depending on type of cities.
The report will now be examined by the empowered committee of secretaries and following that it will be placed before the Cabinet.
