After hearing on this, the High Court had directed the Punjab government to give DA at the rate of 8%. But neither the former Congress government issued DA at this rate nor has it been issued by the present government. Now this DA, which is 8 years old, has been given on the orders of the High Court. The state government had assured the High Court in January 2023 that the government would release the installment of DA in three months.

Calculation of dearness allowance The amount of dearness allowance is calculated on the basis of multiplying the current rate of DA and basic salary. Suppose your basic salary is Rs 29 thousand and DA is 42%, then your DA formula will be (42x 29200)/100. Similarly, dearness relief for pensioners is also calculated.
