The DA increase comes as a relief for Government employees struggling to survive in the spiraling inflation.

Merger of 50% DA with Basic Pay is a genuine plea of Central Government employees especially since a pay revision takes place only after a decade.

did the commission specifically mentioned that" 50% DA should not me mergered" or it just did not mention any recommendation? they are two entirely different answers and clever politicians might be misusing the language.

Sixth Pay Commission recommendation on Merger of 50% Dearness Allowance to central government employees.
1. DA is MOTHER OF ALL ALLOWANCES.
2. THE SERVING HAVE GOT INCREASE OF ALL ALLOWANCES BY 25% ON ATTAINING DA SLAB OF 50% ON 1/1/2011
3. IN ADDITION SERVING ARE GETTING INCREMENT BY 3% ,increments are payable as a percentage of the pay in the pay band and grade pay thereon and provision has been made for all allowances/benefits to be revised periodically linked to the increase in the price index.
4. BUT RETIREES ARE MADE TO SUFFER NEITHER DA HAS BEEN MERGED ON 1/1/2011 ON ATTAINING SLAB OF 50% NOR ANY PERIODICAL INCREMENT IS BEING GIVEN AS APPLICABLE TO SERVING
5. IT IS GREAT INJUSTICE TO RETIRES & VIOLATION OF ARTICLE 14 OF CONSTITUTION.
MAY WE REQUEST PM & FM TO GRANT CORRESPONDING RELIEF TO RETIRES
