Govt announced 6% Dearness Allowance for Central staff

As informed earlier in this blog, Central government employees and pensioners will get an additional six per cent dearness allowance from next month, putting a burden of over Rs 6,000 crore on the exchequer. Employees and pensioners will get the additional DA with retrospective effect from January one this year, as per a decision cleared by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) here.

The revised DA would be 22 per cent, payable from next month's salary, against 16 per cent at present, Home Minister P Chidambaram told reporters here. The combined burden of the increased DA to employees and the retired will be Rs 6,020 crore from January 2009 to February 2010, he said.

However, the exchequer will take a hit of Rs 5,159 crore for the full year, Chidambaram said here.
