As per sources, 6% enhancement in D.A. payable to Central govt. employees and pensioners is likely to be declared in the coming week. A note in this regard is likely to be forwarded in the next cabinet meeting for approval. With this hike, central D.A.
will be 113% with effect from 1st january 2015. As per practice, arrears from January to March 2015 will be paid in cash in the month of April.
As most of the state Govt.s follow central D.A. pattern, employees and pensioners of various state are also waiting for central D.A. approval.
