There is good news for central government employees. From July 1, 2021, about 52 lakh central employees and 60 lakh central government pensioners are likely to get Dearness Allowance (DA) and Dearness Relief (DR) again. Also, for DA arrears, a meeting is going to be held on June 26 regarding DA and DR payment under the 7th Pay Commission.
Central employees are expected to get their salary increased from July 1. The 7th Pay Commission has recommended salary hike. According to Shiv Gopal Mishra, secretary of the National Council of JCM, a meeting will be held on 26th June 2021, which will be chaired by the cabinet secretary.
Calculate DA like this
Gopal Mishra said that while using the CPC Pay Calculator of 7th Pay Commission, one should keep in mind their CPC Pay Matrix. He said that to know how much your salary will increase, you should check your basic salary. Also after this check your existing DA.
At present it is 17% which will go up to 28% after DA restoration. Hence the monthly DA will increase by 11%. Therefore, the DA of a Central Government employee will increase to 11% of their basic pay with effect from July 1, 2021. The same formula will be applicable in the calculation of DR.
understand by example
For salary calculation under 7th Pay Commission, suppose the basic salary of the employee is Rs 20,000, then his monthly DA will increase by 28% of 20,000. This means that the increase in monthly DA will be 11% of Rs 20,000 i.e. total Rs 2200. Similarly other central government employees who have different monthly basic pay in 7th CPC Pay Matrix can check how much their salary will increase after DA restoration.
How much will you get arrears
Shiv Gopal Mishra of the National Council of JCM said that the DA arrears of Class 1 officers would be between Rs 11,880 to Rs 37,554. He said that if the level-13 i.e. 7th CPC basic pay scale is calculated from Rs 1,23,100 to Rs 2,15,900 or level-14, then the DA arrears of a central government employee range from Rs 1,44,200 to Rs 2,18,200. would be between Rs.
