It is to be noted that the Centre is yet to finalise the DA hike for the month of June. But, it is clear from the AICPI data from January to May 2021 that Centre would approve a DA hike of 3% very soon and according to experts an announcement in this regard will be made soon. If the Centre decides to increase DA by 3% then the total DA of Central government employee will reach 31% and there will a significant increase in salary too. Notably, the current DA of Central government employee is 28%. The Centre recently increased the DA of Central government employees by 11%.

Dearness allowance was increased by 4 per cent in January 2020. Then there was an increase of 3 per cent in June 2020. Then, again in January 2021, it increased by 4 per cent.
