Union Cabinet implemented transport allowance based on 7th CPC Recommendation report, there is no changes in the transport allowance now.
All the Central Government Employees expected modifications in the House Rent Allowance & Transport Allowance, but as per the Cabinet decision on 28th June 2017, there is no changes in the HRA & TA.
The pay panel had said in its report, “For most of the allowances that were retained, the 7th CPC recommended a raise commensurate with inflation as reflected in the rates of Dearness Allowanc (DA).
Accordingly, fully DA-indexed allowances such as Transport Allowance were not given any raise. Allowances not indexed to DA were raised by a factor of 2.25 and the partially indexed ones by a factor of 1.5. The quantum of allowances paid as a percentage of pay was rationalised by a factor of 0.8.”
