7th Pay Commission: Salary of these employees may increase, there is a possibility of 4% increase in DA, know details

In March 2022, the Union Cabinet had increased the dearness allowance of government employees by three percent under the Seventh Pay Commission. With this, the DA of the employees has increased by three percent to 34 percent.


Employees can get another big gift from the central government, because DA and DR are increased or revised twice a year during the month of January and July on the basis of retail inflation data. In such a situation, another increase in dearness allowance can happen during the month of July or August. If this happens, then the employees will get big benefits and the salary will increase.

The report on retail inflation for April is scheduled to be released this week. At the same time, the inflation rate in March has increased from 6.1 percent in February to seven percent and this inflation rate has been due to the continuous increase in the increase in food items. In such a situation, it is being estimated that in July, the DA to the employees may increase by 4 percent.

4% dearness allowance may increase

In March 2022, the Union Cabinet had increased the dearness allowance of government employees by three percent under the Seventh Pay Commission. With this, the DA of the employees has increased by three percent to 34 percent. On the other hand, if the dearness allowance of employees is increased by 4 percent during July, then the dearness allowance of these employees will be 38 percent.

Salary doubled

This move of the central government will benefit more than 50 lakh government employees and 65 lakh pensioners. Let us inform that since July 2021, when the freeze in DA has been removed, since then DA and DR have been increased and their salary has doubled. While dearness allowance is given to government employees, dearness relief is given to pensioners to deal with the rising rate of inflation.

When and how much DA increased

The central government increased the DA and DR for central government employees and pensioners from 17 per cent to 28 per cent respectively in July 2021. After this, in October 2021, another increase of 3 percent was made in the dearness allowance. After that, the DA for central government employees increased to 31 per cent, with effect from July 2021 and last increased by three per cent to 34 per cent in 2022.
