The government did not pay the pending DA arrears of 18 months

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the central government had stopped the payment of DA and DR for 18 months from January 2020 to June 2021. Earlier, Mukesh Singh, General Secretary of Bharatiya Pratiraksha Mazdoor Sangh, had urged the central government to release the payment. DA arrears of 18 months are still pending.

According to a letter written to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, the letter states that I fully understand the challenges posed by the COVID 19 pandemic and the economic troubles that followed. Due to this, three installments of Dearness Allowance (DA) and Dearness Relief (DR) for the financial year 2020-21 were stopped. However, as our country is gradually recovering from the effects of the pandemic, it is a pleasure to see the improvement in the financial condition of our country.

The government received the proposal for 18 months DA arrears

In a letter to the Prime Minister, Mishra said that as Secretary (Employee Side) of the National Council (JCM), it is my duty to draw your attention to some major issues that are troubling the central government employees and pensioners. However, if the government accepts the proposal of 18 months DA arrears, then the employees can get a big amount in salary.
