Babu Hussain Malik, president of All J&K Employees Action Committee, says that DA was lying closed since January 1, 2020. Since then, inflation has increased significantly. In such a situation, the decision of the Central Government to increase the DA from 17 to 28 percent to the employees from July 2021 is nothing less than good news for the employees. However, it would have been better if the government had released the previous arrears as well. They say that the employees of Jammu and Kashmir now come under the Union Territory. In such a situation, the state government should also issue an order on issuance of DA to its employees soon.
Khurshid Ahmed, president of the Darbar Move Employees Association, says that the central employees have got a lot of relief from the issuance of DA. In such a situation, the state government should also issue orders soon so that four lakh government employees of the state can get relief.
