7th pay commission: A big gift has been announced for government employees even though it will cost the government exchequer plenty.About 23,000 government employees in Puducherry will now get an enhanced House Rent Allowance (hra). The joy is enhanced as this is set to happen from this month only! The Union Territory administration has decided to implement hra as per the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. However, at the central government employees level, the authorities are silent on whether they will get a hike in minimum salary and fitment factor beyond the recommendations of the 7th pay commission report.  
 
According to reports, the Puducherry government employees of working in Puducherry region would be entitled to get 16 per cent of their basic pay as House Rent Allowance as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.
 
Through a release on Tuesday, Chief Minister V Narayanasamy stated that the government decided to enforce the allowance as per the 7th Pay Commission report and the staff would get the new pattern of hra from the current month.
 
Narayanasamy reportedly stated that employees in the other regions of Karaikal, Mahe and Yanam would get eight per cent of the basic pay as hra as per the 7th Pay Commission`s recommendation.
 
Further, he said that although the government was reeling under fiscal crisis, the role played by the government staff in taking benefits of various welfare schemes to the people "is laudable." 
 
It was therefore decided to ensure that the hra as recommended by the 7th Pay commission is implemented, Narayanasamy reportedly said, while adding that the new hra would entail an expenditure of around Rs 6 crore every month.
