During the old period, three arrears of central employees have not been received from January 2020 to June 2021. During this period 11 percent DA was increased by the government but its payment was frozen.
After the lockdown opened, the government lifted the ban on freeze DA. Then after July 2021, the increased dearness allowance was paid. But the employees did not get the money for the period of 18 months from January 2020 to June 2021.
The court accepted - this employees' right
Central employees say it is their right, the government should not stop money. The employees had also appealed in the court regarding the demand for arrears of dearness allowance.
The Supreme Court had asked the government to consider it. The court had said that this is the right of the employees. You can freeze it but can't stop it. Pensioners had also appealed to PM Modi regarding their DR arrears.
How much money will be made from DA Arrears?
If the central employees get the outstanding amount of DA, then a good amount will come in their account. According to an estimate, the DA arrears of employees at Level-3 can be between Rs 11,880 to Rs 37,554.
For Level-13 or Level-14, the arrears of employees can range between Rs 1,44,200 to Rs 2,18,200. However, negotiations with the government can lead to settlement. In this case the figure will change.
