What about state government pensioners? Would 7th pay commission be applicable for state government pensioners?

The reports only talk about hike in salaries of Central Government employees. Salaries and pensions of state government employees come under purview of their respective administrations and how and when the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission come into effect, will depend on where you live. For example, Haryana has decided to revise pension with effect from Jan'16 who retired or died prior to Jan'16.

Employees are frustrated and you media people, without knowing, are publishing false news. Even before approval of allowances committee report, media published about HRA hike, but why?

The article clearly states that as per reports the hike is expected. There is no official confirmation yet but a Financial Ministry official told The Sen Times, “Government is on the path of effecting minor changes in the pay matrix upto level-5,”. We will update you whenever there is any official communication from the Ministry of Finance.

In July'17 Finance Ministry said that the NPA will only be paid at 20% of the basic pay, in accordance with the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission. It is subject to the condition that the sum of basic and NPA shall not exceed Rs. 2,37,500. In this order, there was no talk about merging NPA and basic. You can read the release here.
