No Memorandum issued on Resumption of Dearness Allowance – Finance Ministry responds

The Finance Ministry clarified on Saturday that it has not passed any order on resumption of Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief for Central Government Employees and Pensioners.

In Twitter the official PIB Fact Check tweeted that โ€œA document is doing rounds on social media claiming that Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief for Central government employees and pensioners will be resumed from July 2021. This claim is #Fake. No such announcement has been made by the Government of India.โ€

The Ministry of Finance also issued a clarification in a twitter that , “A document is doing rounds on social media claiming resumption of DA to Central Government employees & Dearness Relief to Central Government pensioners from July 2021. ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ข๐—  ๐—ถ๐˜€ #๐—™๐—”๐—ž๐—˜. ๐—ก๐—ผ ๐˜€๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ข๐—  ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜€๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฏ๐˜† ๐†๐Ž๐ˆ.”

Central government employees get a Dearness Allowance of 17 per cent. In March 2020, the Union Cabinet had hiked the Dearness Allowance by 4 per cent to 21 per cent. However, in April 2020, the government halted the hikes of Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief for government employees and pensioners, respectively, due to the financial situation amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
