According to the Telangana PRC 2021 report , the classification of cities and towns has been updated with reference to the Final Census figures of 2011 obtained from the Director of Census Operations and from the latest notification of new municipal areas from the Director of Municipal Administration, Hyderabad.

This has been done keeping 7th CPC recommendation in view.

Here, TeachersBADI.In Team provided Complete Information On House Rent Allowance (HRA) and 11th Pay Revision Commission (RPS 2021) Recommendations. The House Rent Allowance is introduced in 1969  and HRA is paid to Government employees to meet to a certain extent, the additional burden on employees by way of higher rents.

The allowance was first provided to employees in 1969 in a small way. A scheme for payment of House Rent Allowance based on the twin criteria of population of cities / towns and the pay level of the employee was established.

Several associations of the employees, Teachers and Workers requested this PRC. for payment of HRA at 30% of basic pay without any ceiling in all municipalities, villages included in Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation City / HMDA. They also requested for HRA at 20% of basic pay without any ceiling for all District Headquarters and places within periphery of 67 15 KMs. For other places HRA at 12.5% basic pay without any ceiling was requested. Different associations requested for payment of HRA at different percentage rates, ranging from 15% to 30% of basic pay.

TS PRC HRA Rates 2021

Accordingly, this Commission has gathered details of population of towns and cities of Telangana State as per final census 2011 from the Commissioner & Director of Municipal Administration, Hyderabad. In the last PRC the cities and towns have been grouped separately on the basis of their population and different slab rates with a ceiling has been prescribed from different groups of towns for House Rent Allowance. For example for GHMC jurisdiction the HRA is 30% of basic pay with a ceiling of Rs.20,000/-.

Central Pay Commission: The 7th CPC which is effective from 01.01.2016, while recommending new enhanced pay structure has reduced the slab rates of HRA for different categories of cities. For example, for GHMC which is a A1 City the HRA rate has been reduced from 30% to 24%. Similarly, for other categories of cities also the HRA slab rates have been reduced. The Commission now recommends a master scale based on a minimum basic pay of Rs.19,000/- per month. Whereas the pay scales of 7th CPC is based on a minimum basic pay of Rs.18,000/-. This gives a small edge to the Telangana State Government employees over employees of Central Government working in the State in determination of House Rent Allowance.

Moreover, the new basic pay will be arrived by merging DA and fitment with the old basic, so each employee will get HRA more than what they are getting at present. For example in GHMC area, {24% of (100 +30.392 [DA] + 7.5 [fitment]) > 30% of 100} and similarly for other places. In these circumstances the Commission recommends a HRA structure similar to the recommendation of 7th CPC. The 7th CPC has changed its slab rates of HRA from 30%, 20% & 10% to 24%, 16% and 8% of the basic pay respectively. They have reduced the slab rates uniformly by 20%. The Commission recommends reduction of slab rates as given in the table by reducing the slab rates in a graded manner starting from 20% for GHMC to about 10% in smaller towns.

Additional HRA In Lieu Of Rent Free Accommodation: The Government has been declaring certain posts in several departments as eligible for rent free accommodation. This is because their presence is essential for the discharge of duties not only during normal office hours but also beyond those hours. At times the supervisory authorities are required to stay in the hospitals, projects, institutions etc., throughout the day and night. But Government may not be in a position to provide accommodation on the premises or in the vicinity of the institution.

Therefore, the Government officials are required to stay in a private accommodation near their place of duty. Government had declared various categories of employees who are entitled for rent free accommodation from time to time. If rent free accommodation is not provided, Government have been allowing Additional HRA to meet the additional cost.
