Revised rates of Allowances can be included in 7th Pay Commission Arrears calculation?

Revised rates of Allowances can be included in 7th Pay Commission Arrears calculation?
7th CPC Pay and Arrears Calculator and Allowances
The Central Government employees know the fact from their past experience that the Allowances will not be given retrospective effect whenever it is got implemented. In Previous Pay Commissions, the increased amount in Allowances like HRA and TA will not be added in the Arrears because all the revised rates of Allowances are paid with effect from the date of Notification issued.
If the Notification issued on 1st July 2016, it is not sure whether the government will implement the revised rate of Allowance from January 2016. The Central Staffs will be at loss of six Months Arrears in respect of revised rates of Allowances if it is implemented with effect from the date of issue of Notification. Difference in the Basic Pay alone will be paid as Arrears. Finally, the period of delay in issuing Notification will make the CG Employees lose their increased amount in Allowance for that particular period.
It is upto the bargaining power of Government and Federations that decides the effective date for payment of Revised Allowances
It is therefore, now the expectation of central government employees focused especially on date of Notification and amount of Arrears they will be getting after the implementation of 7th pay commission. They now started calculating the 7th pay commission arrears. Until now it is not clear that when will the notification be issued for implementation of pay panel report.

CPAO/Tech/Jeevan Pramaan/2016/07
Office Memorandum
Subject: Incorporation of Aadhaar number in fresh Pension Payment Orders (PPOs).
Attention is invited to CPAO OM No. CPAO/Tech/Jeevan Pramaan/2015-16/1770 dated 07.03.2016 (Annex-I) and D.O. letter dated 30.07.2015 from CGA to all Secretaries (Civil Ministries) regarding incorporation of Aadhaar number in the fresh PPOs (Annex-II). In this context, it is observed that progress in incorporation of Aadhaar numbers in the fresh PPOs has been very low. For the period July, 2015 to March, 2016 out of 25608 total fresh PPOs received in CPAO, only in 1907 (7.45%) cases Aadhaar number was mentioned.
2. In view of Aadhaar Cards numbers crossing 100 crores marks and implementation of Aadhaar linked Biometric Attendance System in most of the central government offices, it is very unlikely that a retiring government servant will not have Aadhaar number. Further, DOPT vide its OM No. Z-20025/9/2014-Estt (AL) dated 03-11-2014 (Annex-III) had requested all Ministries/Departments to ensure that the Service Book of all employees have an entry of Aadhaar number.
3. In view of above, all Pr. CCAs/CCAs/CAs are once again requested to take up the matter with JS (Admn) and Heads of Offices of respective Ministries/ Departments to arrange for providing Aadhaar number in all pension papers to be submitted to concerned PAOs to enable them to incorporate the same in PPO booklets.
