New Delhi, 14/7 (AO Bureau):In the midst of the Corona crisis, the Modi government has given a big gift to the central employees. In the meeting of the Union Cabinet, it has been decided to remove the ban on dearness allowance of central employees. The cabinet has increased the dearness allowance i.e. DA (Dearness Allowance) of central employees from 17 percent to 28 percent. In this way, there has been a total increase of 11 percent in DA. This decision has been taken in the cabinet meeting chaired by PM Narendra Modi on Wednesday.

stem will come DA
To know how much your salary will increase, you should check your basic salary. Also after this check your existing DA. At present it is 17 percent, which DA has now become 28 percent. Hence the monthly DA will increase by 11 per cent. Therefore, the DA of a central government employee will increase to 11 per cent of their basic pay with effect from July 1, 2021. The same formula will be applicable for the calculation of DR.
