According to experts, the DA arrears of Level-1 employees range between Rs 11,880 to Rs 37,554. At the same time, level-14 (pay scale) employees will get DA from Rs 1,44,200 to Rs 2,18,200.
The effect of inflation is less than DA, the total dearness allowance increased by 11 percent compared to last year, the government has reduced it to 28 percent from July 2021. Now if it is increased by 3 percent in June 2021, then after that dearness allowance will reach 31 percent.
In other words, if the basic salary of an employee is Rs 50,000, then he will get Rs 15,500 as DA. At the same time, on the lines of the Center, the states have also decided to increase the DA.
These include Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Jharkhand, Haryana, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Assam. DA is a fixed part of the basic salary of the employee. To reduce the effect of inflation in the country, the government gives dearness allowance to its employees, which is increased from time to time.
