Before making any projection for Transport Allowance after 7thcpc. Lets have a look at Transport Allowance recommendation by Previous Pay commission.Transport Allowance was introduced in fifth pay commission.After 5th CPC lump-sum amounts as Transport Allowance was decided based on the Pay Scale and City.
,6th Pay Commission brought in the DA Component for payment of the Transport Allowance .
Transport Allowance on implementation of 5th Pay Commission
|Pay Scale||Transport Allowance|
|Rs.8000-13500 & above||800||400|
|Rs. 6500-6900 & abovebut below Rs. 8000 -13500||400||200|
|Below Rs. 6500-6900||100||75|
Transport Allowance on implementation of 6th Pay Commission
|Employee Grade Pay||Rate of Transport Allowance per month|
|In 13 Cities Classified as A1 / A earlier||Other Places|
|Grade Pay of Rs.5400 & above||Rs. 3200 + DA thereon||Rs. 1600 + DA thereon|
|1. Grade pay of Rs. 4200, Rs.4600 and Rs. 4800. Those drawing grade pay below Rs. 4200 but drawing Pay in the payband equal to Rs.7440 and above||Rs. 1600 + DA thereon||Rs. 800 + DA thereon|
|Grade Pay below 4200 and pay in pay band below Rs.7440||Rs. 600 + DA thereon||Rs. 400 + DA thereon|
It could be seen from the table mentoned above that on implementation of 6th Pay Commission transport allowance was fixed at 4 times of 5th CPC Transport Allowance. In addition to this benefit DA component was also added. Hence 7th CPC Transport Allowance is estimated be double the amount of transport allowance granted by 6th CPC and DA component of 120 % on 6th CPC Transport Allowance as on 1st January 2016 merged with this new transport allowance
New 7th CPC Transport Allowance Estimation
New 7th Pay Commission Transport Allowance = Two times of existing 6th CPC Transport Allowance + 120% DA Component on 6th CPC Transport Allowance
