new Delhi. Even though the government did not increase Dearness Allowance-DA during the Coronavirus Pandemic, it is being considered to be increased once the situation returns to normal. According to sources, the central government can give good news to government employees and pensioners by July. Under this, the DA is expected to be increased by 4 percent. This will benefit about 50 lakh central employees and 61 lakh pensioners.
According to a business website, the government is considering increasing Dearness Allowance-DA in July next year. However, no official announcement has been made yet. It may be noted that due to Corona infection, the government stopped the increase in DA of millions of employees and pensioners. It was said that under this ban, employees will not be given extra payment. In addition, the Finance Department refused to pay the additional installment from July 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021. But now considering the country’s economy coming back on track, it is being considered to extend it to the next financial year.
These benefits were given to the employees before
