7th Pay Commission Latest NewsEmployees across the country are getting good news as their salary has been increased, whether they work for the central government or the state government. Employees' DA and DR have been increased by 3% by the government once again. Following this declaration, there is a surge of joy among the workforce.  

DA and DR Increased By 3%. 

The central government has already increased its employees' DA to 31%. The Odisha State Government has now increased the DA and DR of employees in this sequence. Odisha personnel will now be eligible for the same of 31% DA and DR hike as central government employees.

Naveen Patnaik, the Chief Minister of Odisha, proposed a 3% increase in the dearness allowance for state employees and pensioners. According to information provided by the Chief Minister's Office, the decision will benefit around 7.5 lakh state employees and retirees. 

50% Of Increased Earning In Arrears  

The state administration has also resolved to pay employees 30% of their arrears under the 7th Pay Commission. Between January 2016 and August 2017, employees will be paid 50% of their increased earnings in arrears. This decision will benefit the state's 6 lakh employees. Employees' dearness allowance has now increased to 31% of their basic income, according to a state government increase.

Central government Can Increase DA of Central Government Employees  

It's worth mentioning that the central government can once again raise the Dearness Allowance of central government employees. According to the AICPI index, the dearness allowance has increased to 33% until September 2021. That is, there has been a 2% growth in it. 

However, data for October, November, and December has yet to be released. It is possible that it will climb by another 1%. If the CPI (IW) maintains above 125 by December 2021, a 3% rise in the dearness allowance is almost inevitable. That is, the overall DA will rise by 3% to 34%. It will be paid starting in January 2022, and central government employees’ salaries will be raised.
