Expected Increase House Rent Allowance in Budget 2018 and Government Employees

I am here sharing the topic of Expected Increase House Rent Allowance in Budget 2018 and Government Employees. According to various news sources and Government sources there are chances of increase in House Rent Allowance for the Government Employees.

 

50% Increase in Current House Rent Allowance

According to the sources there will be 50% increase in the current running house rent allowance the employees drawing. I shared a survey on face book a few weeks ago, but the employees could not understand the concept of 50% increase in current HRA and 30% & 45% of the Initial Basic Pay of the Revised Pay Scales 2017. Many employees voted on 50% of the running HRA instead of 30%& 45% of the current pay scales. I hope after reading this topic you can easily understand the said concept.

Chart of 50% Increase in House Rent Allowance

If the HRA increase 50% of the running HRA it will be a meager amount and the employees cannot afford the rent of house with this small amount. Chart of 50% Increase in House Rent Allowance is as under:

Increase House Rent Allowance

 

Although the amount is still not sufficient to rent a house if we calculate the same on the initial of Revised Pay Scale 2017, however it will be good for the employees if the Government announces the HRA 30% & 45% on the initial of Pay Scales 2017. My proposal is that all the employees should be granted HRA 45% of the Initial of Pay Scale 2017 and the concept of 30% & 45% be eliminated. The chart of the 30% & 45% HRA is as under:

Request from Government

A house on rent in 1400 or 15 and even inn 5000 is not possible to be hired on rent. Average of all the rates mentioned above is Rs.13245/-. Keeping in view the rates of House on rent in various cities of Pakistan, it is requested from Government that there should be minimum increase in House Rent Allowance Rs. 13245 per month for the Government employees and this must be for the lowest grade employee.

 

Turn of the Employees:

 

Now it is the turn of the employees to comment below what they want and what are their requirement in connection with House Rent Allowance. Just comment.

  1. Muhammad Ashraf says:

    HRA should not related with %age of Initial Pay and it should be fixed keeping in view the market rents of different cities. The minimum HRA should be Rs 5000. Regards.

  2. Muhammad Rizwan Ranjha, MDA says:

    Medical Allowance should be increase 50% on running basic pay.

  3. Muhammad Rizwan Ranjha, MDA says:

    Government of the Punjab should increase the pay 30% on running basic pay and pay scale should be revised.

  4. Muhammad Rizwan says:

    House Rent Allowance must be 45% on running initial basic pay scale, 2017 or if Government going to revise pay scale this year again then it must be 45% on initial basic pay scale, 2018.

  5. Rashid hazara says:

    HRA must be on running initial basic bay scale 2017 or if govt going to revise pay scale this year again then it must b on initial basic pay scale of 2018 and not less than 50%., as there is also news of exclusion of utility allowence from this coming budget. Which is seriously bd news.

  6. Saeed says:

    I suggest that Govt. shuold seize to continue the hiring of house facility for the Federalf Govt employees and uniformed policy for house rent may be issued in order to redress the greivences of the FG Employees i.e. 65% of running basic as House rent to each employee will be appropriate if approved

  7. Inam Ullah khan says:

    There should be increase in Hra on the running basic pay and it should be equalized in each area, because everyone have the same requirements/rates either one reside in big city or other.

  8. hamidhussain79@gmail.com says:

    aoa
    province kpk is giving very less amount of house rent to provincial govt servants.
    grade 18 has 3873 house rent where as two rooms house rent in kpk is nearly ten to twenty thousands.
    it must b increased according to the present time
    thanks

  9. Nisar Ahmed says:

    HRA or house rent ceiling must be included in monthly pay to avoid the lot of paper work procedure and also plz solve the huge difference between House Rent Ceiling and House Rent Allowance.

  10. Hafiz Abdullah says:

    Dear Sir,
    it is my humble request to the present Government to do something better in this regard (HRA) in order to remove discrimination among the government servant in all over the pakistan by eliminating the concept of rural and urban different rates. Further requested to the government, try to aware the problems facing by the the lower scale government servant in this regard and then make the better policy applicable all over the pakistan equally.

  11. Faheem Shaikh says:

    The existing H.R.A is a joke to the Govt;Servants & incomparable to any city ' so kindly approve 45% of initial running BPS-2017 similarly all over the country and shut down the door of corruption n dishonesty in the category of House ceiling.Hoping for positive response in this last coming Budget 2018-2019 of the( Noon ) Govt;

  12. rana intzar says:

    kuch ho ga bhi ya jhooti tasalian hain

  13. Micheal David says:

    Even having grade 17 job i cannot live in even a moderate home... which cost 20,000 or more in any city... what a bogus system we are living in...

  14. jawed says:

    fedral govt ldc udc staff bhi mayoos kun hy hy budget ma inko bhi targi di gay sobo ka tarz per ya na insafi hy 2 saal guzar gay hy

  15. Muhammad jamil says:

    Dear sir
    Ask from these ministers weather they can live in house of 2 rooms.
    Weather this country is there father's asets.
    I curse the people who vote these curupt people

  16. Shakeel Lango says:

    house rent should be 80% on running basic pay, house rents are so high in special cities

  17. Hafiz Ijaz says:

    Alternatively, we need no HRA in form of fixed allowance. Instead govt approve house requisition policy for all employees n pay the actual amount of rent

  18. dr.chaman mansha says:

    Govt should redress this issue . it is injustice that the allowance is given on pay scale 2008 but scales are revised, so on basic pay scale 2017 all employees should be given 45 percent as now there is no concept of rural or urban,

  19. h.m. mairaj rabbani says:

    Sindh govt employee bs 11current house rent is 1852 after increse h.r allowance ? Plz tell me.

  20. Ejaz Ahmed Malik says:

    Minimum house rent should be 6000 for BPS-1 in all departments and in all cities (include house hiring cities) for equality.
