It seems Government servant’s patience is being tested as announcement of DA hike due from July 2019 is getting delayed for unknown reasons. Govt Servants expect the announcement should be made before Durga Puja
Usually the Union Cabinet Chaired by Prime Minister give its approval for DA hike proposal in the first week of September for July DA instalment.
The January 2019 DA hike proposal got its approval on 19th February 2019.[ Read] Accordingly, the July DA hike should have been announced in the Month of August. But there is no sign of announcement of DA for July 2019 even in the end of September.
Since Durga Puja is just a few days away, government servants expect that the payment of increased DA with arrears to be paid before Durga Puja. Already PLB and non PLB Bonus are also due for announcement.
As PM was on seven day visit to United States from 21-9-2019 to 27-9-2019, the Union Cabinet could not meet. It appears that this may be the reason for delay in announcing DA hike for July 2019.
