There will be big news soon for central employees and retirees. The government can now give its verdict on 18 mes da arrears (18 mes da arrears). Actually, after a long wait, now retired people have asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to find a solution to this matter. The Retirees’ Association has also submitted a memorandum in this matter. In this memorandum, Prime Minister Modi has been urged to take a quick decision on this issue. If this happens, then a huge amount will come in the account of central employees and retirees.
If DA Arrear comes then you will get big money
The employees are standing firm on their demand regarding this 18 months DA arrears. If the central employees get the arrears of DA Arrear under the 7th Pay Commission (7th Pay Commission), a huge amount will come in the account of the employees. According to Shiv Gopal Mishra of the National Council of JCM (Staff Side), the DA arrears of Level-1 employees range from Rs 11,880 to Rs 37,554. At the same time, if the calculation will be done for Level-13 (7th CPC basic pay scale Rs 1,23,100 to Rs 2,15,900 or Level-14 (pay scale), then the DA arrears in the hands of an employee will be Rs 1,44,200 to 2 ,18,200 will be paid.
No decision on 18 months arrears
It is noteworthy that after the Corona period, the Central Government had increased the dearness allowance by 11 percent in a lump sum from July 1, 2020. But, the arrears of Dearness Allowance during that period (18 months) have not yet been paid to the employees. On this subject, it was said on behalf of the Finance Ministry last year that arrears will not be paid in lieu of freeze dearness allowance. But, on the other hand, due to the demands of the organizations, the pressure on the government is increasing continuously. At present, the dearness allowance of central employees has increased from 34 per cent to 38 per cent.
What is the logic of pensioners?
In fact, the pensioners have appealed that the Ministry of Finance should give the arrears of DA / DR withheld between January 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. We will be extremely grateful for immediate action on this. Pensioners argue that retail inflation had risen sharply when DA/DR was stopped and prices of petrol and diesel, edible oil and pulses were also at record highs. In such a situation, the government should not stop this outstanding arrears money.
Pensioners are waiting
Let us tell you that if these arrears are received by the employees, then a hefty amount will come in their account. In such a situation, pensioners say that DA / DR is paid for the livelihood of the pensioners. During the 18 months, the cost and expenses increased continuously but the allowances did not increase. In such a situation, it is not in their interest to withhold dearness relief as part of pension, the only income of pensioners. Therefore, pensioners say that the government should consider it once again.
