The Allowances To Be Raised 25%

Dearness Allowance has been raised to 51% with effect from 01-01-2011. As the Government accepted the 6CPC recommendations, when D.A reaches 50%, the allowances which are compensatory in nature also should be raised by 25%. There are many allowances and advances are recommended to be raised 25% .

NFIR insisted that 37 Allowances and Advances have to be increased and also demanded the railway Ministry to issue necessary orders without any delay. Many of viewers keep on asking that when will the allowance be raised? As the D.A reaches 50% in January 2011 itself, subsequently all the allowance should witness the hike from January 2011. If so how the children education allowance will be calculated for the remaining period of the academic year? The advances, which have been issued from January 2011 to till date, can be raised? Necessary Clarifications are expected from competent authorities very soon
