New Delhi: The dearness allowance, which has been withheld under the 7th Pay Commission of the Central Employees, has been banned since January. However, employees will not have to wait any longer for this. The central government (central government) may announce an increase in DA in June. The National Council-JCM-Staff Side has given information about this. After the increase in DA, the salary of the employees will be increased by at least 4 per cent.
JCM-Staff Side Secretary Shiva Gopal Mishra said that the central government may announce an increase in DA in June. This will increase the basic salary by at least 4 percent. The National Council is constantly in talks with the Department of Expenditure of the Ministry of Finance and the officials of the Department of Personal and Training (DoPT) to increase the DAA of the employees.
According to the department, the DA surge is being delayed due to the second wave of Corona spread across the country. Earlier the DA was to be increased by April, but due to the Corona crisis, it can now be till June.
DA to stop from July 1
Shiva Gopal Mishra says that this will not affect the 7th CPC pay matrix of central employees, as the central government has kept DA, DR free of employees and pensioners till June 2021. In March 2021, Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur had told in the Rajya Sabha that DA, DR increaseers would be resumed from 1 July. Therefore, if the DA hike of 1 January 2021 is announced today, then it will start from 1 July 2021 only. How much will your DA increase?
Siva Gopal Mishra said that if we talk about the increase in DA, it is expected that the average inflation for July to December 2020 is around 3.5% according to the calculation, then it can increase by about 4%.
how many installments are pending?
If it is talked about pending installments, then Shiva Gopal Mishra said that this is constantly being discussed with the authorities. This will be resolved soon. We have proposed to the government that if they are not able to provide the remaining three installments of DA to the employees at once, then they can also give it in several parts.
