7th pay commission: The government can take a decision soon on the increase in DA of central employees. It is believed that this time an announcement on DA can be made in the cabinet meeting. DA is part of the salary structure of government employees.
The government can soon give gifts to the Central Government Employees. It is reported that the government may take a decision to increase the Dearness Allowance (DA) of the employees during the coming week. Employees are waiting for their DA Hike. The cabinet meeting is to be held on March 15 under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It is believed that during the meeting, the government can take a decision on the increase in DA. However, no official statement has come out on this yet.
DA to increase in the first half
The government increases the DA of the employees every six months. At present, the hike is to be announced for the first half (January-June 2023). Along with this, dearness relief (DR) can also be increased for the pensioners of the central government. Employees organizations are expecting 4% DA/DR Hike. If this happens, then their dearness allowance will increase from 38 percent to 42 percent and the salary of central employees will see a huge increase.
Lakhs of employees will get benefit
If the government decides to increase the dearness allowance, then it will benefit about 48 lakh central employees and 63 lakh pensioners. There has been a rule to increase DA / DR by the Central Government from the beginning of January to the end of July every year. However, there has been a delay in the last few years. In the last half year, the government had increased the DA of central employees by four percent. After this, the DA of the employees was increased from 34 per cent to 38 per cent.
How much can DA increase?
Dearness Allowance (DA) is a part of the salary structure of government employees. The government changes DA every six months. In view of the inflation rate, the central government increases the DA of the employees. Higher the inflation, higher is the increase in DA. It is being said that the government can increase the DA of the employees by four percent. In this way, the DA of the employees will increase from 38 percent to 42 percent.
How much will the salary increase?
If we look at the salary, then if the basic pay of a central employee is Rs 1,8000, then at the rate of 38 per cent, dearness allowance of Rs 6,840 is made. On the other hand, if this DA becomes 42 percent, then the DA of the employee will increase to Rs 7,560. If we look at the maximum basic pay, then the dearness allowance on the basis of Rs 56,000 becomes Rs 21,280. Now if it is seen according to the increase of four percent, then it will jump to Rs.23,520. In this case, employees with minimum basic salary will get a benefit of Rs 720 every month and Rs 8,640 annually.
