According to media reports, the Modi government will increase the DA for January-June 2021 by 4 percent from this month. This step will benefit about 50 lakh central government employees. The speculation gained momentum following the announcement of the All India Consumer Price Index. To make the 61 lakh pensioners happy, the government will make a similar announcement about the increase in dearness relief (DR). As soon as the decision to this effect is announced, the salary of the Central Government employees will automatically increase. This increase will be based on the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission. Currently, central employees get a DA of 17 percent, but if it is increased by 4 percent, So it can reach 21 percent. This is the level that has been cleared but the government freezed it in the earlier amount. Therefore, they are now seeing the 17 + 4 + 4 (approximately) sign. It is expected that the Center will soon announce an increase in DA for central government employees. From January to June 2021, the government will have to wait for the DA’s announcement due to the coronovirus epidemic.
However, in particular, it has been sought to be increased to 28 per cent, noting that high inflation is taking a major toll and increasing household spending. The country’s economic situation deteriorated in the wake of the COVID-19 epidemic but now it is slowly returning to track. It is therefore expected that the Center will soon take a decision in the interest of the Union employees. The news of 4% increase in DA will trigger a wave of happiness among about 50 lakh central employees and 65 lakh pensioners. Earlier, the government had said that the DA of central employees would remain unchanged till 2021, but the improvement in the economy has raised hopes that the Center can re-implement its plan. The Finance Ministry has already said that the DA can be announced keeping in mind the basic salary or pension of the central employees. The expenditure on DA and DR (dearness relief) is Rs 12,510 crore annually.
