Till June, the central employees were getting 17 per cent dearness allowance. Now this allowance has increased to 31%. For example, if the basic salary of an employee is Rs 20 thousand, then DA at the rate of 17% is Rs 3400 per month.

Now this DA will increase to Rs 6200. That is, the salary for the month will increase by Rs 2800. Similarly, if the basic salary is Rs 50,000 per month, the DA will increase from Rs 8500 to Rs 15,500. That is, an increase of Rs 7000 in the monthly salary. This hike has been valid from October 1.
