Earlier, the Narendra Modi government had announced that central government employees (CGEs) and pensioners will be getting full benefits of Dearness Allowance (DA) and Dearness Relief (DR), effective July 1.

Around 50 lakh central government employees and about 65 lakh pensioners are set to benefit from this move. It is expected that final DA that central government employees will get is 28 % (17% + 11%)
“As and when the decision to release the future installments of Dearness Allowance due from 01.07.2021 is taken, the rates of DA as effective from 01.01.2020, 01.07.2020 and 01.01. 2021 will be restored prospectively and will be subsumed in the cumulative revised rates effective from 01.07.2021,” Anurag Thakur, the Minister of State (MoS) for Finance, had said earlier in a written reply to Rajya Sabha
