With this information given by the Finance Ministry in the Rajya Sabha, all hopes are over. Now DA Arrears of 18 months will not be available. The central government has made it clear that the money for three installments will not be given. There is no such provision.

Will Not get DA Arrear of 18 Months

The Finance Ministry has made it clear that the arrears of 18 months of DA will not be available. During the Kovid-19 period, three installments of DA (1 January 2020, 1 July 2020, 1 January 2021) were stopped. After this, the government restored Dearness Allowance in July 2021.

However, there was no mention of the three payments’ money that had been unpaid for the previous 18 months. Beginning on July 1, 2021, the government increased the dearness allowance by 11%. After that, the dearness allowance increased from 17 to 28 percent starting in July 2021. However, it is currently at 38%. However, the workers also demanded compensation for the 18 months that the dearness allowance was halted.

Pensioners Also Lost Hope

The Finance Ministry made it clear in the Rajya Sabha that the arrears of DA Arrear will not be given to Dearness Relief pensioners as well. In the written reply, it was informed that there is no such provision and neither the government is considering it. Pensioners had also written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year regarding the demand for DA arrears and appealed to him to intervene in the matter. But, no decision was taken on this.

Employees Union Will Agitate

Employees Union says that Dearness Allowance (DA) or Dearness Relief (DR) is the right of employees and pensioners. It cannot be stopped. The employees worked hard during the Corona period. His dearness allowance (DA Hike) was not increased, yet he continued to work. Many employees and pensioners also died during this period. The government should also consider other aspects in this matter. However, after the clear refusal of the government, the unions are now making a strategy for the movement.

Rs. 34,000 Cr. Saved
Since the government ceased paying dearness allowance, it has saved Rs 34,000 crore. The combined arrears of Dearness Allowance (DA) for employees and DR for federal government retirees are thought to be in the neighbourhood of Rs 34,000 crore. A representative of the Department of Expenditure (DOI) made it clear that arrears of prior DA-DR will not be released even in the 32nd meeting of the Standing Committee on Voluntary Agencies for review of pension rules. Informing you that DOI is a division of the Union Ministry of Finance
