and move on to Expected dearness allowance from July 2013
It is really unfortunate that at the time of discussing about the rate of dearness allowance from July 2013, expectation on dearness allowance from January 2013 is not fulfilled even now. Actually the additional amount, that the central government employees may get, on account of hike in dearness allowance from January 2013 apart from their regular pay is not at all a matter for the people those who are dealing with lakhs and crores. But it is indeed a matter for 50 lakh central government employees and pensioners, In order to deal with abnormal price rise; they have no other option than expecting dearness allowance to be increased. It is expected that the central government has reached the saturation point and it has no other go than to announce it as soon as possible. Let us hope it will be announced very shortly.
At this juncture it is very hard to move on to the topic of dearness allowance from July 2013. But there is a saying.. “Sometimes It is very hard to move on, once you move on, you will realize it was the best decision you ever made” .
