7th CPC Recommendations 25% Increase Special Allowance for Child Care for Women with Disabilities
As the name indicates, this allowance is granted to differently abled female employees for taking care of their newborn child. The present rate of this allowance is ₹1,500 pm.
Analysis and Recommendations
The Commission recognizes the huge responsibility that these women shoulder while raising their children. Therefore, instead of the factor of 1.5 that we have mostly used for semi-DA indexed allowances, it is recommended that this allowance be raised by a factor of 2 to ₹3,000 pm. The allowance shall further rise by 25 percent each time DA rises by 50 percent.
