The report of special committee on fatter allowances recommended by the 7th Pay Commission is to be delayed because of Uri attack and BJP national executive meet held in Kozhikode, Kerala.

“The report of the committee on allowances, headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa was to submit last week but the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was too busy with political agenda for the both incidents that so fatter allowances was not prioritised,” sources in Finance Ministry were quoted as saying by The Sen Times. “The committee on allowances is ready to submit its report even two months in advance.
