The government’s decision will benefit more than 5 million central government employees and more than 4.5 million pensioners. According to the All India Consumer Price Index (AICPI), the DA is expected to grow by 4 per cent between January and June 2021.

The government banned the DA because of the corona epidemic. As DA increases, so does DR. The increase in the cost of living allowance will increase the DR Dearness Relief of Retired Employees of the Central Government.

According to the Seventh Pay Commission, if the government increases the number of employees, their salaries will also increase. Currently, DAs account for 18 percent of the base salary.
