How Dearness Allowance can increase by 3 per cent
The Labour Ministry has given AICPI figures for May 2021. The index has increased by 0.5 points, taking it to 120.6. According to Shiv Gopal Mishra, Secretary (Staff Side) of the National Council of JCM, it is clear from the figures that in June 2021, DA may increase by 3 per cent.
