12 allowances pertaining to running staff of Railways were not included as Railways wanted to consider the same based on bi-lateral discussions

52 allowances have been proposed to be abolished

36 allowances have either been subsumed in to existing allowances or proposed as new one.

12 Allowances have been proposed to be retained as such with out any change.

Remaining Allowances have been retained but with some changes.
