7th Pay Commission Overtime Allowance from 1st January 2016 – Likely approval of MOD’s Proposal
7th Pay Commission had in its report recommended for abolition of Overtime Allowance in General. However, in respect of operational staff and industrial employees who are governed by statutory provisions OTA (Overtime Allowance) would be paid as recommended by 7th CPC.
7th Pay Commission also recommended that in case the government decides to continue with OTA for those categories of staff for which it is not a statutory requirement, then the rates of OTA for such staff should be increased by 50 percent from their current levels.
Government has decided that given the rise in the pay over the years, the recommendations of the 7th CPC to discontinue OTA for categories other than Operational Staff and industrial employees who are governed by statutory provisions may be accepted.
