AIRF demands merger of 100% Dearness Allowance with Basic Pay
In the article titled Merger of 50 percent DA may soon be considered by Central Government –Sources posted in this website on 15th January 2014, It is said that if the government fails to announce the Merger of 50% dearness allowance before the DA crossing 100% level, Then the central government employees demand will not be for 50% DA Merger but for 100% DA merger. As we said, one of the important railway federation AIRF appealed the central government in its press release dated 21-2-2014 to Merge 100% DA with Basic Pay with all purposes. The Press release of AIRF is given below
February 21, 2014 – All India Railwaymen’s Federation(AIRF) has addressed the issue of merger of 100% Dearness Allowance with Basic Pay for all purposes w.e.f. 01.01.2014 to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and the Finance Minister, Government of India, as Dearness Allowance will cross 100%. Unfortunately, there is no heed to this issue despite agitations at length over the Indian Railways by the AIRF.
It is also unfortunate that due 10% Dearness Allowance w.e.f. 1st
January, 2014 has still not been announced by the Government of India.
AIRF earnestly requests the Government of India to immediately announce Dearness Allowance w.e.f. 1st January, 2014 all along with merger of 100% Dearness Allowance with Basic Pay.
