  • (viii) Early payment of arrears of Running Allowance
  • (ix) Improve rates of Running Allowance
  • (x) Exemption of all the allowances from the purview of Income Tax
  • (xi) Remove anomalies of the VI CPC early.
  • (xii) Early implementation of 15% upgradation of apex grade Supervisors/Sr. Section Engineers in Gazetted Cadre and also grant them GP Rs.4800.
