Central employees are waiting

Meanwhile, central employees are waiting for the increase in dearness allowance for the second half as per the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission. After the formation of the Narendra Modi government, all kinds of calculations are being made regarding the allowance.

In the month of March, the Union Cabinet had approved the release of an additional installment of dearness allowance to central government employees and dearness relief to pensioners to compensate for inflation. Under this, the rate of 46 percent of basic salary/pension was increased by 4 percent. After this increase, the allowance of the employees became 50 percent. This benefited 49.18 lakh central government employees and 67.95 lakh pensioners. Now once again a 4 percent increase is expected, so the allowance will become 54 percent.
