In April last year, the finance ministry had put on hold increment in dearness allowance (DA) for 50 lakh central government employees and 61 lakh pensioners till June 30, 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PTI said in its report.

“In view of the crisis arising out of COVID-19, it has been decided that additional instalment of dearness allowance payable to central government employees and dearness relief (DR) to central government pensioners due from January 1, 2020, shall not be paid,” the Department of Expenditure had said, PTI reported.

The additional instalment of DA and DR due from July 1, 2020, and January 1, 2021, shall also not be paid, the Department of Expenditure had said, the PTI report further said.

However, DA and DR at current rates will continue to be paid, the department had said, PTI reported.

Dearness allowance or DA is paid by the government to public sector employees while DR is paid to government pensioners as the cost-of-living allowance to support them from rising prices. 

DA is calculated according to the employees’ basic salary based on the respective pay scale and added along with other components as take-home amount.
