IN 5thCPC DA ON ATTAINING 50% WAS MERGED IN BASIC AS DP
IN 6th CPC VARIOUS ALLOWANCES FOR SERVING HAS BEEN HIKED BY 25% ON ATTAINING DA AT 50%
SO IT IS GREAT INJUSTICE TO PENSIONER AS DA HAS REACHED 50% BUT NOT ADDED AS DP AS IN 5th CPC.ANY LOGIC PLEASE FOR THIS VARIATION

Govt. may kindly re-consider and allow 50% DA as Dearness pay keeping in view substantial hike in living cost, home, essential commodities, education and all most in every field which is crunching the Govt. employees/pensioners day by day.
