Dearness Allowance Increased 8%


              Good news for Central Govt. Employees and pensioners that the D.A. has been increased 8% to compensate for price rise.  As usually, this increase will be implemented w.e.f. 01-Jan-2010. 

            The hike would be over the existing rate of 27% of basic pay or pension and the additional instalment of DA would be released with effect from January this year. The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief would be to the tune of Rs 6,969.36 crore per annum and Rs 8,131.20 crore in the financial year 2010-2011. 

              The Cabinet also approved revised cost estimates (RCE) for setting up of six new AIIMS-like Institutions and upgradation of 13 existing government medical colleges under Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana PMSSY (Phase I) for an outlay of Rs 9,307.62 crore. The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs had earlier approved the scheme for Rs 3,975.99 crore.
