As per the information received, unlike previous time, decision on DA would be taken by Cabinet Committee Meeting without delay. Subsequent to release of AICPIN for the month of June by Labour Bureau, Finance Ministry would send for the approval of the Cabinet for final decision on DA. After obtaining the approval, Finance Ministry would release the specific orders procedurally for disbursement of money.
Additional DA will be paid along with the salary of this month
The arrears for the month of July and August would also be paid. With the increase of DA by 10%, the total amount of DA would enhance and stay at 90%.
By next year, it would cross 100%. During that period, as pointed out in the 6th Central Pay Commission, certain allowances would enhance by 25%. But, that is not the expectations of the Central Government Employees. Their requirements are merger of DA with Basic Pay.
Towards this matter, Central Government has briefed on many occasions in the Parliament.
At present, Central Government is thinking of bringing change in the AICPIN calculation system. In which way, this would pose impairment can not be ascertained at present. Not only the Central Government Employees but also the State Government employees anticipate the announcement of increase of DA percentage. This has become an eager expectations of more than a crore of employees.
As per the last 5th Central Pay Commission recommendations, once the DA crosses 50%, that has to be merged with Pay. But it is a sorrowful affair that such type of recommendation is not made in the 6th Central Pay Commission.
Instead of this, the recommendation for enhancement of some allowances by 25%, given, which would not be sufficient.
The expectation of the Central Government Employees is merger of DA with basic pay once it crosses 100%.
Whether this expectation would materialize?
