The salary of employees of central government will increase from next year. The decision has been taken as per the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission.
The Central government employees and pensioners were getting Dearness Allowance of 21 per cent, but due to COVID-19, the DA was reduced to 17 per cent. However, this arrangement is being implemented until July 2021. After that, the Centre may release new relief on Dearness Allowance to employees and they will again start getting more salaries. As per updates, the hike dearness allowance of the central government employees is generally done in the month of July every year.
However, due to the coronavirus situation, the Centre took the decision in April to not hike the DA this year. The DA is increased twice every year by the Central government and this is done so that the standard of living of the employees is not affected after inflation increases.
