As the salary of the central government employees is decided by the fitment factor (which is 2.57) multiplied by basic salary plus DA, so when the DA will jump from 17 to 28 per cent, a central government employee's salary will automatically get raised. Apart from that they will be given three installments of the DA arrears too. Source: PTI
