From January 2024, the Dearness Allowance of the employees of the state government will be increased by 4 percent. 4.71 lakh employees of State Service and Panchayat Service and others and 4.73 lakh pensioners will be given the benefit of this increase.

The government has announced an increase under the 7th Pay Commission. Dearness allowance will be increased by 4% for employees and 4% for pensioners. The increased salary can be credited to the account from next month. If the increased dearness allowance is issued to these employees in August, then the DA of 6 months will be added and sent to the account of the employees, which will be issued in 3 installments.

How much will the government pay as arrears?

If we look at the DA arrears of 6 months, then the Gujarat government has to pay a total of Rs 1129.51 crore to the employees as arrears. This payment will be made in three installments. This means that the money will be sent to the employees’ accounts in three installments. This will also reduce the burden on the government and the arrears of employees-pensioners will also be paid.

Dearness allowance was also increased for July

Just before this, in February, the Gujarat government had increased the dearness allowance by 4 percent from July 2023 to benefit the state employees. 4.45 lakh employees and 4.65 lakh pensioners benefited from this increase. The increased DA from July 2023 was also released in 3 installments. From July 2023 to February 2024, the salary was paid in three installments.

It is worth noting that with the presentation of the full budget for the financial year 2024-25, central employees and pensioners are expected to get DA hike in the month of July. The government increases the dearness allowance for employees and pensioners twice a year, so that the employees can get relief to combat inflation.
