Fitment Benefit

We just have seen the BHEL 3rd PRC order where 10% fitment was awarded for the BHEL executives. The NTPC employees got the full fitment benefit of the 3rd Pay revision committee.

The following table represents the formula for the fitment benefit.

Basic Pay +
increment(s) as
on 31.12.2016
(Personal Pay /
Special Pay not
to be included)
Industrial Dearness
Allowance (IDA) as
applicable on 1.1.2017
A + B + 15% of
amount C
rounded off
to the next

Calculation of Fitment Benefit

Suppose an employee has ‘X’ basic pay as on 31.12.2016. Then the calculation for revised basic pay is




Hence your new basic pay will be 2.52425 times of basic pay on 31.12.2016.

If ‘Y’ employee working in E3 pay scale on 31.12.2016 and after pay revision his/her basic pay remains less than 60,000. Then such executive basic pay will be fixed at the minimum of the revised pay scale. In this case, the ‘Y’ will get 60,000 as a revised basic pay.

Those who have joined the NTPC after 01.01.2017 or will be joining after this cut off date, they will not get any fitment benefit. However, they get revised basic pay which is much higher than the pre-revised pay.

Increment Rate

The government employee gets increment every year on the basic pay. The rate of increment will remain same as was in 2nd PRC report i.e. 3%.

House Rent Allowance rate

The 3rd PRC committee recommended the HRA rates of 24%, 16% and 8% for the X, Y and Z-Class city respectively.

The revised HRA criteria are mentioned in the table

NTPC Revised HRA Rates from 28.05.2018
City ClassHouse Rent Allowance Rate
X – Class24% of Basic Pay
Y – Class16% of Basic Pay
Z – Class8% of Basic Pay

Most of the NTPC employees take government accommodation due to process industry jobs. So such executives may not get the benefit of House rent allowances. The NTPC will deduct the amount as per House Rent Recovery (HRR) from employees who are residing in NTPC quarters. The rate of HRR is shown here in the table.

NTPC Revised HRA Rates from 28.05.2018
City ClassRate of HRR
X-class7.5% of Basic Pay
Y-class5% of Basic Pay
Z-class2.5% of Basic Pay

Leased Rent Accommodation

SBI leased rent accommodation policy is best in the Government organization. The NTPC has not developed the policy for the same. If you see the recent 3rd PRC pay revision order, NTPC management preparing the rules for the same.

NTPC Perks & Allowances

The ceiling for the cafeteria allowances is 35% of the basic pay. The cost incurred on the facility like hospital, schools, college etc would be kept outside the ceiling of 35%.

Performance Related Pay

PRP Weightage Criteria is based on following parameters

  • Company Performance (50%)
