Hon’ble Prime Minister of India,
Raisina Hill,
South Block,
New Delhi.

Respected Sir,
        Sub:- Merger of Dearness Allowance with the Pay of the Central Government Employees - reg.
While thanking you for the decision for appointment of 7th Central Pay Commission, we request you to kindly appreciate that the Dearness Allowance paid to the Central Government employees had crossed 50% of pay as on 01.01.2011. This portion of the Dearness Allowance needs to be merged with the Pay for all purposes as was done in the year 2004.

2. According to the figures available, the Central Government employees will get at least 9% increase in the Dearness Allowance w.e.f. 01/01/2014 thus the DA may be almost 100% of pay. 

NF1R, therefore, requests you to kindly see that Government takes decision for merger of 50% DA with pay for all purposes with effect from January 1, 2011.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-
(M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
