‘The government usually announces additional dearness allowance for Central staff twice in a year from January and July, based on the price-fluctuation data of the previous six months.’
Central Government employees are currently being given a Dearness Allowance of 113%. With 6% DA almost conclusively assured from July 2015 onwards, official announcement is expected to be made during the cabinet meeting in the second week of next month. As soon as cabinet gives its nod, DA will be issued at 119% for the six months starting July 2015, up to December 2015.
