Dearness allowance for Jharkhand govt employees hiked to 38%

The Jharkhand cabinet approved a 4% hike in dearness allowance (DA) for state government employees and in dearness relief (DR) for its pensioners with effect from July 1 this year.

The state cabinet meeting was chaired by Chief Minister Hemant Soren.

“The council of ministers approved the proposal for enhancing the dearness allowance payable to the state government employees to 38 percent from the existing rate of 34 percent with effect from July 1, 2022,” cabinet secretary Vandana Dadel said.

“The cabinet also decided to hike the dearness relief for the pensioners from the existing rate of 34 per cent to 38 per cent,” she added.

Apart from Jharkhand, Delhi had raised the Dearness Allowance of its employees by four per cent a couple of days ago. This was done in alignment with the hike in DA of central government employees.

As the Central government announced a 4 per cent hike in the dearness allowance for its employees, the same day, the Rajasthan government also approved a four per cent increase in the dearness allowance to state employees and pensioners.
