7th Pay Commission gift to J&K, Ladakh from October 31


SRINAGAR: Come October 31, 4.5 lakh government employees in the Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh will start getting the benefits of the 7th Pay Commission, officials have announced.
The central government will bear the cost of implementation of the CPC, which is estimated at Rs 4,800 crore. The move comes in the wake of the abrogation of Article 370 and 35A that conferred special status to J&K.
Home minister Amit Shah approved the proposal.
“The annual financial implication of 7th CPC allowances like children education allowance, hostel allowance, transport allowance, LTC, fixed medical allowance etc. in respect of 4.5 lakh Government employees of existing State of Jammu & Kashmir shall be Rs 4800 crore tentatively,” the official statement said.
