7th Pay Commission latest news today: The Centre has announced fresh sops for central government employees associated with a certain segment of the bureaucracy regarding a certain Allowance. This hike will put more money in the hands of the government employees and comes just ahead of the Diwali festival. It will come as great relief and will allow them to celebrate the festival with gusto. These government employees fall under the 7th Pay Commission under health services segment. Under the new order, government employees' monthly will increase from Rs 4,100 up to Rs 5,300. Since the benefit would be applicable from the 1st of July 2019, the central government employees would get an additional arrears benefit of as much as 26 months.
The central government order says that a non-ministerial staff of Group A and Group B, excluding nurses and doctors, will get HPCA or Hospital Patient Care Allowance and PCA or Patient Care Allowance. However, it has been underlined that those employees who are on leave for more than a month will not be eligible for this allowance. The 7th Pay Commission Matrix Level 8 and above will get HPCA/PCA of Rs 4,100 per month. Employees of Level 9 and above would get HPCA/PCA of Rs 5,300 per month.
Another good news that Central Government employees are awaiting for is with regard to Dearness Allowance (DA). The order by the Centre is being awaited since July 1st. As per speculation, the central government employees would be given 5 per cent DA that would also be applicable from 1st July 2019.

Since the government has delayed the DA announcement and festival season is around the corner, central government employees are expecting it to happen anytime and perhaps as soon as this weekend. If the DA is announced this month, then the central government employees would get arrears of 3 months.
