NMC appeals for DA hike w.e.f. July 2015

National Mazdoor Conference (NMC) today appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to release the pending installment of 7 per cent DA due from July this year for the Central government employees.

"We appealed to the PM to announce and release the pending installment of 7 per cent DA due from July this year for employees and pensioners of the Centre as well as state governments in view of increasing inflation and price hike of essential commodities," NMC President Subash Shastri said today.

In a memorandum sent to the Prime Minister, the NMC chief said, the price index which was 6.89 per cent in December 31 last year increased to 12.49 per cent in June 30, 2015, and urged him to take decision in this regard at the forthcoming Union Cabinet meeting.

The rate of compensation was revised every six months based on average of the consumer price index for previous months and this would be the 21th biannual increase since the recommendation of the 6th pay commission which was accepted by the Central Government in 2008, he said.

Shastri said that prices of all essential commodities had gone up and there was no justification on Central Government's part to withhold this instalment of DA.
