A meeting on the allowance updates regarding the 7th Pay Commission is likely to be held today. Central Government employees who have been waiting for an update since the past year could soon hear some good news as the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) is expected to hold a meeting today. Many reports suggested that the meting would be held today. Once a decision is taken the same would be placed before the Union Cabinet fora final approval.
