They want House Rent Allowance to be enhanced

Members of All India Postal Employees Union staged a demonstration here on Thursday.

K.D. Manohar Devarajan, divisional secretary of the union, who led the agitation, said the house rent allowance should be hiked as per the recommendations of the seventh pay commission with effect from January 1, 2016.

Previously, the HRA for staff of the Department of Posts, working in cities under categories of A, B and C class was 8%, 16 % and 24 %, respectively. As per the revised recommendations, it needs to be hiked to 10 %, 20% and 30% respectively.

A committee was formed to monitor the implementation of recommendations but even after a year, no modification was made in the HRA.

The revised recommendations should be extended to Grameen Dak Sevaks (rural postal employees).
