6. The employees of State Public Sector Undertakings/Statutory Corporations/Autonomous bodies on State DA pattern, are also eligible for the enhanced rate of DA, subject to the following conditions:

i) This will apply only in Public Sector Undertakings, Statutory Corporations, Autonomous Bodies etc., where State D.A. or Central D.A. (with 50% merger) is in force. This will not be applicable where variable D.A. is in force.

ii) Shifting from one DA system (ie., State D.A., Variable D.A, Central D.A.) to another requires separate and specific prior approval of the Government. Orders in this regard are to be issued by the Administrative Department in consultation with Planning & Economic Affairs (BPE) Department and Finance Department. Such migration cannot be done on the basis of this Government Order.

iii) Those organizations which are already on State D.A. can release the revised rates of D.A. to their employees without reference to Government. However, a decision on this has to be taken by the Board of Directors of the organization, keeping in mind the ability of the organization to pay for the increase from their own resources. If the organization cannot meet such expenses on their own, and has to get funds from the Government for this, prior approval of the Government should be taken. (Orders in Government can be issued by the Administrative Department only in consultation with Planning & Economic Affairs (BPE) Department and Finance Department.) The condition that those organizations which require funds from the Government to pay the DA instalments need to take prior Government approval will
not apply to organizations such as Universities, Kerala Water Authority, Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment etc. where more than 90% of the salary expenses are met by Non Plan grant from the Government. They can release DA instalments without prior approval of the Government but with the approval of the Board/Executive Committee etc.
