  1. Someone said that after retirement, 6 months house rent ceiling is also paid to the employees. If it is true, I will need notification of it.

  2. Latest updates regarding increase in house rent ceiling. Summary has been sent to PM office with 50% increase by Min of H&W on 4 April 2018. Final approval will be accorded by PM. Hope for the best.

    Dear Madam when the enhancement in house ceiling will be re-initiated for PM approval any updates. How many it would be increased. Expected as per sources report.

  4. Dear Shamaila what I understand from the letter is Rental ceiling for private accommodation will take immediately from 01-10-2017.Mohw will resubmit the summary to PM for revision of ceiling for 50%. Which means 50% (Half) of recommendations of Ministry of Fiinance which was 40% means actuall increase for the year 2017 will be 20% of current ceiling & remaining 20% will be included in budget 2018-19 alongwith 50% HR Allowance of initial basic of 2017 Pay Scales…. Do you agree…?????

  9. We have our own housing colony but houses are given on seniority basis after 10 to 15 years before that we arehave not given any hiring.
    Plz guid that what we can do?
    I am from POF and have Basic Pay Scales

  10. I think these rates will be revised in the Budget 2018-2019.. this is the meaning i get from the letter.. Ministry of housing will resubmit the summary before the next budget.. Dear Shumaila please share you thoughts on this.

  11. It means no increase till June 30, 2018. In short the hiring rates will be revised after almost 4 years. Hiring rates if increased 50 %, then actually Govt has increased the rates by almost 33%. By saving one year payment the Govt will announce the huge increase of 50%. This is called Accounting :).

  12. What’s about news regarding implementation of increase in rental ceiling in next financial year??? Or this news is related to house rent allowance?????
