7th CPC Risk and Hardship Matrix – RH-Max
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: ₹31500 pm
Level <=8: ₹21000 pm
As mentioned earlier, this is taken as the ceiling for RHA, i.e., no government employee faces more Risk/Hardship in his work than our Defence officers and jawans posted in Siachen Glacier. Hence, no RHA can have a value higher than this allowance.
The cell subsumes two allowances: Siachen Allowance and Antarctica Allowance.
The rate in this cell has been worked out by multiplying the existing Siachen Allowance by a factor of 1.5.
