A big update may come before Christmas

It is expected that this decision can be taken in the meeting to be held with the Cabinet Secretary. In December, just before Christmas (December 24 (tentative)), there may be a meeting with the cabinet secretary, in which the issue is to be discussed. However, it was made clear by the Central Government in July that there is no idea to give DA Arrears to the central employees. But, with the constant demand and the letter written by the pensioners to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the final decision can be taken in this matter. 

Regarding the 18 months arrears of the employees (18 Months DA Arrear update), it is expected that the government should consider the demand of the council. Under the 7th pay commission, the central government has given 31% dearness allowance to the central employees and many big benefits, but the issue of arrears is hanging. JCM Secretary (Staff Side) Shiv Gopal Mishra is also continuously demanding about this. There is also a demand for a one-time settlement of DA arrears pending for 18 months. It is expected that this can be discussed with the Cabinet Secretary in December. According to the annual report of the Department of Expenditure, there are a total of 48 lakh central employees in the country and about 60 lakh pensioners. 

PM Modi can take a decision on Arrear

Even though this issue has to be raised in the meeting with the cabinet secretary. But, PM Modi can take a decision on arrears. In the 18-month arrears case, the pensioners had written a letter to him seeking his intervention. If the arrears of 18 months get the green signal, then a huge amount will come into the account of one crore more employees and pensioners. The Indian Pensioners’ Forum (BMS) wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in October. It was said in the letter that the decision to stop DR for pensioners is not right. 18 months of money is very important for the livelihood of pensioners. It is not in the interest of pensioners to stop it.
