It was expected to be increased in May, but the report of the National Council-JCM-Staff Side may shock millions of central employees. Because even this time they will not get the gift of increased DA. It is now expected to be announced in June.
JCM-Staff Side Secretary Shiva Gopal Mishra says that the central government may announce an increase in DA in June. This will increase the basic salary by at least 4 percent. For this, the National Council is in constant contact with the Department of Expenditure of the Ministry of Finance and the officials of the Department of Personal and Training (DoPT).
