Expected announcement of DA of 10% in September 2013
Usually the central government announces DA for the employees twice a year with effect from January and July. But the last announcement for the DA came only in April and it was 8% and the total DA was 80% of the basic pay. As per the AICPIN calculations for the last six months (from January to June 2013), DA is to be fixed at 10%. Employees are eagerly awaiting for the announcement of the same in September itself without any delay from the government. This is the second time that DA will be 10% after the 6th CPC came into effect. This clearly shows the price rise for essential commodities in India. The state government employees also await for announcement. Let us hope that the government announce the DA in the second week of September after the Cabinet meeting and discussions.
