According to reports, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to chair a cabinet meeting today, after which the final announcement regarding the DA hike will be made. It is expected that all government employees could get a hike of 3 percent in Dearness Allowance.

The current DA percentage for all government employees is 31%, which could effectively increase to 34% after today’s announcement. This DA hike is expected to be beneficial for over 1 crore central government employees and pensioners.

The DA of Central government employees is updated two times a year between January and July. The DA is calculated by multiplying the current rate of dearness allowance by the base wage. All government workers, public sector employees, and pensioners are given a DA to help them manage their expenses.

Under 7th Central Pay Commission, DA for the central government employees is calculated as;

Dearness Allowance percentage = ((Average of AICPI (Base Year 2001=100) for the past 12 months-115.76)/115.76) x 100
