7th CPC Risk and Hardship Matrix – R3H2 (R3 Low H2 Medium)
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: ₹3400 pm
Level <=8: ₹2700 pm
The cell subsumes the following allowances: High Altitude Allowance-CAT I, Tough Location Allowance–II, Project Allowance, Compensatory (Construction or Survey) Allowance, and Hydrographic Survey Allowance (except non-surveyors).
The rate has been arrived at by applying the factor of 1.5 to the rates of Special Compensatory (Remote Locality) Allowance–Part C.
Track Maintainers–I, II, III and IV of Indian Railways should be granted a RHA based on the rates of this cell, in view of the hardship faced by these categories of employees.
