Assembly elections are going to be held in Madhya Pradesh on 17th November. Before the voting of assembly elections, the Election Commission has not given permission to give dearness allowance to government employees.
Now the employees are expected to get relief in this matter only after the formation of the new government. In fact, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan had written a letter to the Election Commission regarding giving four pieces of dearness allowance to the employees on the day of Dhanteras and had requested that permission should be given to give dearness allowance to the employees of the state.
State Secretary of Third Class Employees Union, Umashankar Tiwari said that the employees and retired employees are disappointed with the Election Commission not allowing 4% dearness allowance to 7.50 lakh employees of the state and dearness relief to 4.50 lakh retired employees.
He said that during the Kamal Nath government in March 2020, the formation of a new government was banned due to the Finance Department’s order to give 12% to 17%. It was only the employees who suffered the loss. He said that now if the new government does not accept this proposal then the working class will be deprived of benefits worth Rs 500 crore.
