The 7th pay commission Dearness Allowance (DA) and Dearness Relief (DR) benefits which were halted last year due to the coronavirus pandemic will likely to restore in the month of September. Central government employees were waiting for the announcement of restoration. 

The decision came after a meeting of the National Council of Joint Consultative Machinery, the department of personnel and the training (DoPT), and the finance ministry

“In our meeting held on 26th June 2021, it has been agreed that central government employee’s 7th pay commission DA and pensioner’s DR benefit will be resumed in September 2021,” an official said. 

During the meeting, many decisions for the welfare of the central government employees were taken. The DA allowance has been suspended last year when the coronavirus cases were increasing in the nation. Now it has been 18 months that the service was suspended. 

The cabinet secretary’s decision to remove the suspension on DA and Dearness Relief (DR) for the central government pensioners came as a relief. 

The three previous installments of January 2020, June 2020, and January 2021 which were halted are likely to given together to the Central government employees. The three installments suspended are expected to come in September this year. 

The government will also be paying outstanding payments for July and August months in September along with the salary to the employees. 

Currently, the central government employees are receiving 17 % DA. This will become 28 % after adding the three suspended installments. There was an increase in DA in January 2020 by 4 percent and was further increased by 3 percent in June 2020. In January 2021, DA has increased by 4%. Now when all three installments are to be paid to the government employees, it is very likely that DA will increase to 31%.
