SSC CGL Salary after 7th Pay commission – Inspector Etc

StepsCalculations Step Wise

Step 1

Lets take an example of a govt employee say priyesh under 4600 GP working from 2011 with current basic pay of 14140 (13500+yearly increments) + Grade pay 4600

  • Add Basic Pay + Grade Pay
  • Here it will be (14140+4600) = 18740 after Adding Both Basic Pay And Grade Pay

Step 2

  • Multiply the above figure with 7th CPC Fitment Factor (Index) 2.57
  • Multiply your Basic pay with this fitment factor, 18740 * 2.57 = 48161.8
  • Now After Multiplying both Basic Pay and Grade Pay Addition with 2.57 Then You will Be this  48162

Step 3

  • Now next Step is to Compare this Answer with Matrix Table ( Given Below) and select closest higher figure in the Table given Below
  • Our Figure is 48162 so we take the nearest highest value which is 49000
  • This figure is your Basic Pay i.e. Rs 49000

Step 4

Calculation of HRA:

  • 7cpc has the following changes w.r.t HRA – In the 7th Pay commission there is A Change in HRA rate .
  • Now will Calculate The HRA On the Basis Of 7th pay commission
  • 30 % is changed to 24 %
  • 20 % is changed to 16%
  • 10 % is changed to 8 %
  • Find the 24% of the Basic Pay  =   49000 x 24/100 = 11760  – Your HRA is Rs.11760 After Calculating it


 Step 5Dearness Allowance (DA)

  • Since DA will be Zero from 1.1.2016 So no need to calculate the DA.
Step 6TPTA (Transport Allowance)

  • 7th CPC Recommends Transport Allowance for three Category of Employees for Two Types of Places
  • If you are living in A1 and A classified cities  you will be entitled to get higher TPTA rates
  • Since Grade Pay is 4600 our guy falls in Second category ie Grade Pay 2000 to 4800 = Rs 3600+DA
  • Your TPTA is Rs. 3600 (DA is Nil as on 1.1.2016)
Step 7Gross PayAdd all the figures

  • New Basic Pay + HRA+DA+TPTA = 49000+11760+0+3600 = 64360
  • Your revised 7th CPC Grass pay as on 1.1.2016  =  Rs.64360.
Steps 8Deductions:NPS: 

  • It is deducted on basic pay and is 10 %
  • so NPS deduction is 10 % of 49000 = 4900
Step 9CGEGIS Deductions 

  • CGEGIS Deduction Will Be Rs 2500
Step 10CGHS: 

  • CGHS Table is not Given Here you can Check this table In 7th Pay commission report
  • CHGS Deduction will be Rs 325
Step 11Total Deductions:

  • NPS+CGEGIS+CGHS = 4900+2500+325 = 7725
Step 12Cash In Hand (Net Salary):

  • Gross salary – Deductions => 64360-7725 = Rs. 56635
