Dearness allowance from Jan 2013, will be declared only after the FM arrival..!


The decision on Dearness Allowance from January 2013, will be declared only after the Finance Minister’s arrival..?!

The decision on Dearness Allowance will be declared only after the Finance Minister’s arrival..?!

It is really surprising that, even after the month prescribed by 6CPC to announce the Dearness Allowance passed, the central government yet to decide the rate of dearness allowance to be paid to central government employees from January 2013. Almost all the central government employees news websites have written more than enough about the rate and timing of announcing the Dearness allowance payable to central government employees with effect from 1st January 2013.

On 2nd April 2013, Some Established News websites informed that the 8% dearness allowance likely to be approved by cabinet committee today ie on April 02, 2013. But at the end of the cabinet meeting it had been informed that decision on hiking dearness allowance deferred as the Finance Minister was not present. At that time the Finance Minister P Chidambaram was on an official visit to Japan. According to this claim, it is now very much clear that if FM is not present in the Cabinet committee meeting , the fate of DA will not be decided.

Now according to the PIB release dated 13-4-2013 , The Union Finance Minister Shri P. Chidambaram left for one week two nation tour to Canada and USA on Sunday,14th April, 2013. The Finance Minister will leave for the back home on 20th April, 2013 and will arrive in the national capital on the early morning of 22nd April, 2013.

Now it can be claimed that the decision on Dearness Allowance will be declared only after the Finance Minister’s arrival. So the central government employees may have to wait for one more week to get the result on  8% hike in dearness allowance from January 2013.

If proposal for raising dearness allowanace from 72% to 80% has been sent by finance ministry to central cabinet committee for approval,then there is no need of FM in cabinet meeting.Delay indicates that something is under consideration in favour of employees like merger of pay and DA etc

May it happen. Because of rise in price of day to day commodities, it is very difficult to pull on in 10 k pension

Definitely there will be no merger of DA with the Basics as per the recommendations of the VI CPC
