Good news for central administration employees! DA hiked these states



Several state governments have increased DA and DR rates for their workers and retirees. Here are the states that have increased the DA of their government employees.








State government employees in MP now receive DA at the same rate as the federal government, which is now 34%.





The announcement of the increase in the high cost allowance (DA) and the high cost relief (DR) is eagerly awaited by employees and pensioners of the State. Currently, central government employees receive AD at the rate of 34% of base salary.












Meanwhile, several state governments have increased DA and DR rates for their workers and retirees. Here are the five most recent DA developments:

DA increased in Tripura:

The proposal to increase the dearness allowance for state government employees by 5% was approved by the government of Tripura on Wednesday August 3rd. Higher cost assistance for state government retirees will also increase by 5%. From July 1, 2022, the new DA/DR tariff will be in effect. 1,04,683 regular employees and 80,855 retirees will benefit from the increase in the DA/DR rate by the State.

DA increased in Madhya Pradesh:

The DA rate for state government employees has also been increased recently by the Madhya Pradesh government. State government employees in MP now receive DA at the same rate as the federal government, which is now 34%. Employees will receive their August pay in September, reflecting the higher DA rate.












DA increased in Uttarakhand:

The dearness allowance for more than 45,000 employees of local companies and organizations in the state of Uttarakhand has been increased by the government by 3%. The increase would come into effect on January 1, 2022.

DA Hike Updates for Central Government Employees:

For employees and retirees of the central administration, an increase in the rates of allowance and relief from high cost is due. In light of the 0.2% increase in the Consumer Price Index for All India Industrial Workers (AICPI-IW) over the past six months, the government is expected to announce a increase of 4% and bring the AD rate to 38%.

This index is used by the State to calculate the DA and DA rates for its employees and retirees. However, the government has yet to issue a public notification regarding the increase in DA.












Previous DA hike:

The central government increased the DA rate from 3% to 34% in January 2022. This came after the DA rate increased by 3% in October 2021.

As recommended by the 7th Pay Commission, DA increases were allowed. The employee’s compensation as determined by the matrix of the 7th compensation commission, excluding any other type of compensation such as special compensation, is called base compensation to calculate the DA.
