Notional DA increase benefit to be granted to the Retirees for computation of Gratuity and Leave Salary from 1.1.2020 to 30.6.2020
How the Gratuity, Leave Salary is calculated for Retiring Employees during DA freeze period ?
One of our reader has raised this important issue, which needs to be clarified by Govt of India.
The query raised by Shri.Anirban Paul, a railway employee from Kharagpur in our Gservants Facebook Page comment section is given below
“I could not understand about the restoration of DA hikes for Jan 2020, July 2020 & Jan 2021 along with July 2021?
That means whoever will retire on 31st July 2021 and beyond, his retirement benefits like Gratuity, leave encashment etc will be calculated with existing 17%+DA hikes of Jan 2020+July 2020+Jan 2021+ July 2021 DA amount.

Whereas people who will retire between January 2020 and June 2021, their retirement benefits will be calculated with 17% DA only!
Wise men please clarify. Anyone who can’t clarify please share the logic to reach Honourable Minister of Finance, Union of India.”
