6% D.A from January 2011 for Central Government Employees

The Union Cabinet decided to give an additional Dearness Allowance (D.A) of 6% to Central Government Employees and Pensioners. The existing D.A was 45% and the New D.A will be 51 %. The decision has been taken today, 22nd March, 2011. The new D.A will give to all employees with effect from 01st January, 2011.

No doubt this additional D.A will give much relief to all from high inflation. The benefit of this declaration will get around 50 lakh Government employees and around 38 lakh pensioners. The increased liability of this additional D.A will be around 6000 crore

As we posted earlier the present D.A hike increases some daily allowances such as Children Education Allowance, Child Care Allowance, Washing Allowance, Cycle Allowance, Cash Handling Allowance, Conveyance Allowance, Split Duty Allowance and some advances such as Festival allowances and Flood Advance etc. to 25% more
