Dearness Allowance (DA) from 1.7.2013 (July 2013 to December 2013) approved today by Cabinet Committee

Dearness Allowance (DA) from 1.7.2013 (July 2013 to December 2013) approved today by Cabinet Committee

In a news that could bring cheers to millions of past and present Government employees, the Indian Government Cabinet Committee approved the 10% (ten percent) raise in Dearness Allowance (DA) payable to Government employees from 1.7.2013 (July 2013 to December 2013).  This will increase the DA rate from current 80 % to 90 % and all Government employees will get arrears from July 2013 to September 2013 (if orders are issued within a week)

The text of the Cabinet Committee meet is as follows :

Release of additional installment of dearness allowance to Central Government employees and dearness relief to Pensioners, due from 1.7.2013
The Union Cabinet today approved the proposal to release an additional installment of Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to pensioners with effect from 01.07.2013, in cash, at the rate of 10 per cent increase over the existing rate of 80 per cent.

Hence, the Central Government employees as well as the pensioners are entitled for DA/DR at the rate of 90 per cent of the basic with effect from 01.07.2013. The increase is in accordance with the accepted formula based on the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission.

The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both dearness allowance and dearness relief would be of the order of Rs. 10879.60 crore per annum and Rs. 7253.10 crore in the financial year 2013-14 ( i.e. for a period of 8 month from July, 2013 to February 2014).

The orders are awaited now.  Hope this time the Government doesnt make any delay in issuing the orders like in April 2013.  The holiday season in on us and any money in such hard pressed times is welcome!

I will be keeping a watch on the related website and bring you the orders as soon as they are issued, to make your holidays worthwhile.
