7th pay commission recommends Nursing Allowance with no Change
8.17.83 Nursing Allowance is the composite term used for four allowances granted to nursing personnel: Nursing Allowance, Uniform Allowance, Washing Allowance, and Messing Allowance, presently granted at the following rates:
Nursing Allowance 4800 Uniform Allowance 750 Washing Allowance 450 Messing Allowance 75 8.17.84 There are demands to increase the rate to three times its present value.
Analysis and Recommendations
8.17.85 The Commission is of the view that Nursing Allowance is already at an appropriate level. Hence, no change in the rate of Nursing Allowance is recommended. However, the rate of Nursing Allowance will go up by 25 percent each time DA rises by 50 percent.
8.17.86 Uniform Allowance and Washing Allowance have been subsumed in the newly recommended Dress Allowance for Nurses and will not be payable separately. Messing Allowance is petty in nature. It is recommended that it should be abolished.
