Will the Minister of Finance be pleased to state:

b) if so, the reasons for not restoring DA to Central Government Employees and pensioners before July, 2021; and

c). whether Central Government employees and pensioners are not entitled to three instalments of DA and, if so, whether Government would also release these instalments and, if not, reasons therefor?
