The Union Cabinet approves an additional 4% Dearness Allowance (DA) hike for Central Government Employees and Dearness Relief to pensioners with effect from 1st Jan 2024. This increase brings the DA to 50% of the basic pay. Following the announcement, the Ministry of Finance (FinMin) also released the dearness allowance order

As a result of the Dearness Allowance hike, there will be a corresponding increase in the Transport Allowance, Dearness Allowance, and total salary.

Some other allowances will also increase once the dearness allowance crosses 50%. When DA reaches 50%, certain allowances and pay components are increased as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission. Here are the details of those allowances.

  • House Rent Allowance (HRA)
  • Children Education Allowance
  • Special Allowance for Child Care
  • Hostel Subsidy
  • TA on Transfer
  • Gratuity Gratuity Ceiling
  • Dress Allowance
  • Mileage Allowance for Own Transport
  • Daily Allowance

House Rent Allowance (HRA)

Based on the 7th CPC recommendations, the Ministry of Finance released Office Memorandum No. 2/5/2017-E.II(B) on July 7, 2017, for the implementation of the 7th CPC House Rent Allowance (HRA). The order mentions that HRA rates would be revised to 30%, 20%, and 10% for cities categorized as X, Y, and Z, respectively, when the Dearness Allowance (DA) crosses 50%. However, there has been no official order released for implementing the new HRA rates.

To facilitate easy calculation, 7th CPC salary calculators now include both the old and new HRA rates. This allows users to estimate their salary under both scenarios (pre and post-DA exceeding 50%)

What is a 7th CPC Salary Calculator?

A 7th CPC salary calculator is an online tool that helps you estimate your monthly in-hand salary based on the 7th CPC pay commission recommendations. These calculators consider various factors that influence your pay, including:

  • Pay Level and Grade Pay: The 7th CPC pay matrix categorizes employees into pay levels and assigns a corresponding grade pay.
  • Basic Pay: This is the pre-revised basic pay you received as of December 31st, 2015.
  • Fitment Factor: The 7th CPC multiplied the basic pay by a factor (currently 2.57) to arrive at the revised basic pay.
  • Dearness Allowance (DA): This is a cost-of-living adjustment added to the basic pay, and the percentage is periodically revised by the government.
  • House Rent Allowance (HRA): This allowance depends on the city you work in and your pay level.
