Gujarat State Government Increased 5% DA For Government Employees

A cabinet meeting of the state government was found today. It was decided to increase the dearness allowance of state government employees. Thus, with this decision, the State Government has given a New Year's gift to government employees and pensioners. 

The state government has increased the inflation allowance of all government employees and pensioners by five percent. The increase will come into effect from July 1, 2019, and its arrears will be paid in three phases. Thus, employees will now get 17 percent inflation allowance instead of 12 percent.

The GUJARAT Government  raised dearness allowance by 5% in a move that will benefit lakh government employees and lakh pensioners. The hike, based on the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, will cost the exchequer Rs crore and will be effective from July, this year.

Cabinet has also relaxed the mandatory requirement of Aadhaar-seeded data as a pre-condition for release of funds to the beneficiaries under the Pradhan Mantri KisanSamman Nidhi (PM-Kisan) scheme to November

The long wait of over one crore central government employees as well as pensioners for increase in dearness allowance (DA) is likely to end, as Centre is all set to give the biggest gift to them and that too today itself. If sources are to be believed, a decision to increase the dearness allowance of government employees may be taken in the meeting of the Union Cabinet slated today. However, there may be a problem. In view of assembly elections in Maharashtra and Haryana, the government would have to first get the approval of the Election Commission of India.
