President approves payment of 2% DA from July 1
08 November 2016 Current Affairs GK: President Pranab Mukherjee has given approval to payment of a 2 % dearness allowance (DA) to central government employees. 

The move will benefit about 50.68 lakh employees and 54.24 lakh pensioners.

The decision to provide 2 % DA on basic pay was earlier approved by the Union Cabinet and will be applicable from July 1. 

Consequent upon the decision taken by the government on recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission relating to DA, the President is pleased to decide that the DA to all categories of the central government employees shall be admissible at the rate of 2 per cent of basic pay per month

The revised pay structure, effective January 1, 2016, includes the DA of 125 per cent sanctioned from that date in the pre-revised pay structure. 

Thus, DA in the revised pay structure is zero from January 1, 2016. 

The ministry further said till a final decision on allowances is taken based on recommendations of the committee constituted under the chairmanship of the finance secretary and the expenditure secretary.

The ministry further said the orders will also apply to the civilian employees paid from the Defence Services Estimates.
