  1. I am not an economist.yet what l say may look real. DA/DR r given as compensation for inflation. If they r not paid ,as inflation will not go away, it has to be met from the existing income i.e. basic pay/ pension . Thereby the value of basic pay/pension gets reduced by that%, which presently is 4%. As the time go one day the value of pay/pension may attain zero value.well if it is restored by 01/7/2021, by then the value of pay/pension money would reduce by 16% (assuming the inflation goes at the uniform % of 4%).So for these 18 months ,pay/pension r to be received at the reduced value of money,if Cabinet approved DA/R not paid.To that extent v r pushed to poverty.
