7th Pay Commission: From September, central employees’ dearness allowance will be reinstated. The arrears owed to DA are expected to be added to his pay. Tomorrow’s cabinet meeting will be the final seal on this.
7th Pay Commission: Tomorrow will be crucial for 1.2 million central government employees and retirees. On the increased dearness allowance (DA) and dearness relief, the cabinet’s final seal can be taken tomorrow (DR). Aside from that, arrears for the months of July and August will be settled tomorrow. If this occurs, a large sum will be deposited in the accounts of central staff in September’s salary.
Tomorrow is the Cabinet’s final approval of the DA.
A meeting of the Union Cabinet will be conducted tomorrow, July 7, under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership. According to sources, the dearness allowance (DA) for central personnel would also be reviewed at this meeting. Let us inform you that on June 26, a meeting between the Finance Ministry and the DoPT (Department of Personnel and Training) headed by the Cabinet Secretary resolved that Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief would be reinstated beginning September 2021. It is expected to be approved at tomorrow’s cabinet meeting.
The DA will be 31%.
According to Shiv Gopal Mishra, secretary of the National Council of JCM (JCM), central employees currently receive a 17 percent dearness allowance under the 7th Pay Commission. When will the DA rise from the previous three installments be reinstated? After that, it will be directly 28 percent. In January 2020, DA was increased by 4%, followed by a 3% increase in the second half of the year, i.e. July 2020, and finally a 4% increase in January 2021.
It is possible that it will increase to 3% in July 2021, bringing the dearness allowance to (28 + 3) 31%. That example, by September, DA will have increased by 14 percent, or the DA of a central employee will have increased by 31% of their basic wage. In the same way, DR will be calculated for retirees.
This amount will rise.
According to Shiva Gopal Mishra of the JCM’s National Council, the Dearness Allowances (DA) for January and July 2021 will be issued in September. As a result, central personnel and retirees will have to wait another two months. According to Shiv Gopal Mishra, class 1 employees’ DA arrears will range from Rs 11,880 to Rs 37,554. According to him, the DA arrears of a central government employee vary from Rs 1,44,200 to Rs 2,18,200 if the next level-13, i.e. the 7th CPC, is calculated for the basic pay bracket of Rs 1,23,100 to Rs 2,15,900 or level-14. The cost will be between Rs.
