Shiv Gopal Mishra, Secretary of the National Council of Joint Consultative Machinery for Central Government Employees, has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi (PM Modi) regarding this. In this, it has been requested to give 18 months’ DA and DR to the employees and pensioners.

What is DA Arrear?

Dearness Allowance (DA) is an allowance that is given to government employees and pensioners in addition to their salary and pension. Its purpose is to balance the effect of inflation. The increase in DA was stopped from March 2020 till now, due to which the DA arrears of the employees were pending.

How much is the outstanding amount?

According to sources, the Prime Minister can take cognizance of this demand of central employees. However, whatever decision will be taken on this, it will be after the Union Budget 2024. Let us tell you, the DA arrears of level-1 employees range from Rs 11,880 to Rs 37,554. At the same time, if the calculation is done for level-13 (7th CPC basic pay scale Rs 1,23,100 to Rs 2,15,900) or level-14 (pay scale), then an employee will be paid DA arrears of Rs 1,44,200 to Rs 2,18,200. This amount will strengthen the financial condition of the employees.

Expectations of Central Government employees
