After the Union Budget 2023, the fitment factor of the salary of government employees is expected to change. The fitment factor is a common value, which is calculated by multiplying the basic pay of the employees by their total salary. After this increase, the minimum wage of the employees will increase from Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000.
How much will be the salary?
The common fitment factor currently stands at 2.57 per cent. This means that if a person gets a basic pay of Rs 15,500, then his total salary will be Rs 15,500*2.57 or Rs 39,835. The 6th CPC has recommended the fitment ratio to remain at 1.86 per cent.
Now according to reports, the employees are demanding the government to increase the fitment factor to 3.68 per cent. With this, the minimum pay for central government employees will increase from Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000. Unions and employee associations have been demanding an increase in the fitment factor for many years. They say that despite the increase in DA, an increase in basic salary is necessary because the salary increases on this basis.
The government also changed these rules
Let us tell you that the Finance Ministry has recently changed the rules related to House Rent Allowance (HRA) for central government employees. According to the new rules, government employees will not be eligible for HRA in certain cases. The first rule is that if the employee shares the Government accommodation allotted to another Government employee, he will not be eligible for the same.
Apart from this, if the parent, son or daughter of the employee has been allotted a house by any of them and he is living in it. These include Central or State Government, Public Sector Undertaking and Semi-Government Organization like Municipal Corporation, Port Trust, Nationalized Bank, LIC etc.
Apart from this, if the spouse of the government employee has been given a house by any of the units mentioned above. And even if he is living in that house or living on a separate rental, he will not qualify. At the same time, central employees are expecting an increase in DA. The decision to increase the DA for the second half has not yet been taken, whereas as a rule it should happen.
