7th CPC Risk and Hardship Matrix – Low R1H3
7th Pay Commission recommended just two slabs for each allowance–with one rate for officers and a lower rate for PBORs. Most of the existing relativities have been maintained.
Level >=9: ₹5300 pm
Level <=8: ₹4100 pm
This rate is equal to the rate of Cell R3H1 since equal weightage has been assigned to risk and hardship.
The cell subsumes the following allowances: Hospital Patient Care Allowance (HPCA), Patient Care Allowance (PCA), Test Pilot and Flight Test Engineer Allowance.
The Commission notes that HPCA and PCA are admissible to ministerial staff as well on the premise that the entire hospital area carries the risk of communicable diseases. This practice should be stopped and HPCA/PCA should be admissible to only those employees who come in continuous and routine contact with the patients.
