"Allowance committee did not submit report yet " - Govt reply in Loksabha

"The Committee on Allowances has been constituted vide order dated 22.07.2016. The Committee is to examine the recommendations of the 7th CPC in regard to various allowances having regard to the representations made by the Staff Associations and the suggestions of the concerned Ministries/Departments and make recommendations as to whether any changes in the recommendations of the 7th CPC are warranted and if so, in what form."
"The Committee has not submitted its report to the Government.The deliberations of the Committee are in the final stages. Decisions on implementing the Report will be taken after the Report is submitted by the Committee."
As stated by  SHRI ARJUN RAM MEGHWAL, MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE in Loksabha on 10th March 2017

Lavasa Committee yet to finalize report
A panel headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa and tasked with examining the 7th Pay Commission’s (7th CPC) recommendations on allowances has been unable to reach a conclusion in its last scheduled meeting last Friday. It will now have a few more meetings before submitting its report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Business Standard has learnt.

In late June last year, after implementing the CPC proposals on salary and pension for the central government’s 4.7 million employees, Jaitley had announced the Lavasa panel would examine the suggestions on allowances. It had time till October to give the report but this got delayed. The decision on allowances was postponed because the CPC wanted a number of these to be abolished or subsumed. Employee unions were opposed.

“There were no conclusive decisions taken at the meeting last Friday. There will be some more meetings. For now, the panel is not ready to give its report to the Finance Minister,” said a senior government official aware of the developments.

It was earlier reported that the panel would submit its recommendations to the government’s political leadership soon and the Centre could announce revised allowances any time after March 11, the day of counting the votes for the five Assembly polls, and probably before the second half of the Budget Session of Parliament ends. That timeline now seems doubtful.
