It should be noticed that the DA was last increased in the month of March.

Central Government Employees will get a 3% DA hike

Employees working under the Central Government presently get 31% DA.

On the off chance that the public authority chooses to expand the DA, it will straightforwardly help crores of people working in various govt. offices and retired people (ex-workers). As of now, the number of central employees is in excess of 50 lakhs, while 65 lakh ex-central employees are getting annuities/pensions. Along these lines, more than one crore people will have profited from this DA hike.
