DA hike effective January 2022 announced; 50 lakh govt staff to benefit

Government hikes Dearness Allowance for central govt employees and Dearness Relief for pensioners by 3%.

The Government had hiked Dearness Allowance for central govt employees and Dearness Relief for pensioners by 3 percent. The hike will be effective from January 2022 and with the latest increase the DA and the DR now stand at 34 percent

The DA increase would come as a relief for the employees at a time when petrol and diesel prices are witnessing a continuous surge.

"This increase is in accordance with the accepted formula, which is based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission," said the government. This decision will benefit over 50 lakh government employees and 65 lakh pensioners.

The government revises DA and DR twice every year -- in January and July. Dearness Allowance is a component of salary of government employees and pensioners, aimed at soothing the impact of inflation. Dearness Relief is what is given to pensioners.
