All the Central Government Employees wonder why there is so much delay in announcing the DA from July 2016, the first installment of Dearness Allowance in 7th CPC. The silence of the Federations in the Dearness Allowance issue is not understandable. The way the present Government deal with the issues related to central government Employees is unacceptable. But it seems that the Staff Associations lost its vigour to fight with the Government to settle the genuine issues pertaining to Central Government Employees.
Already the fate of the Allowances is not known. To Everyone’s Surprise, the Government is not ready to say anything about Dearness Allowance, as there is none to ask them about why the DA has not been announced. If the Federation know the reason for the delay of announcing the DA from July 2016, they bound to tell the CG Staffs the reason behind the inordinate delay. Whether it is 3% or 2% whatever it may be , but Dearness Allowance announcement should be made in time. The morale of the employee should not be let down. Because low morale can lead to poor cooperation, low productivity.
