Updates on the 7th Pay Commission: The employee association is highly optimistic about the meeting on June 26th. If they receive arrears of dearness allowance after the DA reinstatement on July 1, their salary will soar dramatically.
Updates on the 7th Pay Commission: The long-awaited news of Dearness Allowance (DA) and Dearness Relief (DR) for 52 lakh central employees and 61 lakh retirees has finally arrived. The National Council of JCM, an organization that represents central government employees, has scheduled a meeting with central government officials for this month.
Will there be a discussion about DA arrears on June 26th?
On June 26, representatives from the National Council of JCM, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), and the Ministry of Finance will meet. This meeting was supposed to take place on May 8 last month, but it was postponed owing to the Corona epidemic. There has been conjecture about the new date since then.
The meeting will include a discussion on DA arrears.
The main goal of this conference, according to Shiva Gopal Mishra of the National Council of JCM, will be to pay 7th Pay Commission DA arrears to central employees and 7th Pay Commission DR benefits to retired central government officials. The Cabinet Secretary of India will preside over this meeting, according to the National Council of JCM.
There’s good news for 1.2 million individuals!
According to Shiva Gopal Mishra, the Cabinet Secretary’s and Finance Ministry’s attitudes toward DA and DR arrears are quite encouraging, as it is a subject that affects 1.2 crore, central government employees and retirees. As a result, the National Council of JCM is quite excited about this conference, and they are hoping for good news to come out of it.
From July 1st, the DA will be increased.
The Central Government indicated that employee DA and DR would resume on July 1, but nothing was said about the three pending DA. There are concerns among the staff about this. Employees anticipate that the government would pay their back pay together with the DA increase beginning July 1.
For the past year and a half, the DA has been frozen.
Let us inform you that the government has frozen three payments of employees’ dearness allowance (1 January-2020, 1 July-2020, and 1 January-2021). Employees have been receiving a 17 percent dearness allowance since July of this year, because the next raise was supposed to take place on January 1, 2020, but it was postponed. That is, the employees’ dearness allowance has remained unchanged for the past year and a half, despite the fact that it is revised every six months.
