Central employees have got a big gift. Dearness Allowance (DA Hike) has been approved for July 2022 in the Modi cabinet. The cabinet has approved 4 percent increase in dearness allowance. Now the DA of central employees has increased to 38 percent. Dearness Allowance will be applicable from 1st July 2022. Meaning, from July itself, the central employees will get the benefit of 38 percent DA. For this, DA Arrear of 2 months (July and August) will also be given. Earlier, the government had approved the increase in DA in March 2022, which was implemented from January 1. The Central Government increases Dearness Allowance (DA Hike) for its employees twice a year. The first is applicable from January and the second from July. However, it is announced at the end of March and September.

Central pensioners get the same benefit as the increase in dearness allowance. There has also been an increase of 4 percent in dearness relief for them. Now pensioners will also get pension at the rate of 38 percent. If someone’s pension is Rs 20,000, then at the rate of 4 percent, their pension will increase by Rs 800 in a month.
