At the Cabinet Committee meeting that was held on 28/02/2014, approval was given for a 10% hike in the Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief for Central Government employees and pensioners. Nearly a month has passed but the Finance Ministry has still not issued relevant orders to the departments concerned. 

Despite the consent of the Cabinet Committee, the enhanced amount of DA will be given only after the Finance Minister issues the orders. The month of March ends on Monday and orders will have to be issued before then. Only then will the employees receive the DA amount for the month of March along with the month’s salary. Since all the banks will remain closed on the 2nd due to Annual closing of accounts, it will be available only on Tuesday, the 3rd.
