DA could increase from 16 percent to 26 percent. As a result, about 50 lakh central employees and about 75 lakh pensioners will benefit. Central government employees are in arrears of 3 points of DA due to Corona. The central government had earlier hinted at resolving it from July. However, it is believed that the arrears of DA will not match. Recently, the All India Consumer Price Index (AICPI) data has been released. As can be seen, from January to June this year, the figures suggest that DA could increase by 4 percent. Central government employees and pensioners now get DA at the rate of 18 percent. Earlier, there were 2 points of DA arrears. From January to June 2020, DA could increase by 4 percent, from June to December 2020 by 3 percent and from January to June this year by 4 percent. As a result, it may increase from 16 percent to 28 percent.

State Minister for Finance Anurag Tagore told Parliament in March that the arrears would be paid to the workers from July 1. He also said that they could not be given for so long due to corona. However, he also said that no area of Boyaka DA will be given. Central government workers and pensioners were somewhat confused by the news. However, in the end, when the news of giving the outstanding DA came to the fore, a smile appeared on their faces again.
