The Dearness Allowance (DA) for central government employees is anticipated to increase by 3%, however, if the Centre announces it, the increase will not be as anticipated. Employees of the central government anticipated a 4% increase in DA. This is because, according to the most recent AICPI-IW statistics, the Dearness Allowance rate is higher than 3%.
Dearness compensation (DA)
Currently, retirees receive 42% of their basic pension as Dearness Relief (DR), while central employees receive 42% of their basic wage as DA. The 4% increase will bring the total DA/DR to 46%, giving employees and pensioners additional money to combat the decline in the value of their monthly paychecks owing to this year’s increase in inflation.
However, according to recent media sources, there is a reason why the Central Government is expected to boost Dearness Allowance by three percentage points to 45%. Employees and pensioners are given a Dearness Allowance based on the most recent All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW), which is made available by the Labour Bureau each month. On July 31, 2023, AICPI-IW data for the month of June 2023 were made available.
According to AICPI-IW data
The Dearness allowance raise is just over 3%, according to Shiv Gopal Mishra, general secretary of Revenue All India Railwaymen’s Federation. The administration is not, however, considering raising DA above the decimal point. Therefore, the government is permitted to raise the DA/DR by 3%. Now, a proposal for the DA raise with revenue implications is anticipated to be prepared by the Department of Expenditure under the Finance Ministry. The Union Cabinet, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, would later be asked to approve the idea.
People will gain from it
Employees and retirees of the Central Government get their pay and benefits in accordance with the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations. Over 1 crore central government employees and pensioners will profit from the announcement of the DA/DR raise.
