An increase of 7% over the existing rate of 58% of Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government Employees is effective from 01.01.2012.
So, West Bengal Govt. employees are lagging 20% behind the Central Govt. employees.
I know this. Honourable C.M. has declared earlier a increse of D.A. of 6% which will be activated from January 2013. But in some news paper it is said that the increse of D.A. will be 10% to 13%. Is it right?
