Dear Sir,

Sub: Payment of Dearness Allowance/Dearness Relief w.e.f. 01.01.2020, 01.07.2020 and 01.01.2021 with the arrears

Ref.:(i) Secretary, National Council(JCM)’s letter No.NC-JCM-2021/CS/PM/(DA) dated 17.07.2021 followed by a reminder dated 27.12.2021
(ii) NC-JCM Item No.NC-48/6/2021.

This issue of payment of Dearness Allowance / Dearness Relief, w.e.f 01.01.2020. 01.07.2020 and 01.01.2021, with the arrears, had been discussed in detail, and it was pointed out that the Hon’ble Supreme Court, vide judgment dated 08.02.2021 in Civil Appeal No 399 of 2021 (arising out of SLP(C) No 12553 of 2020), had decided that the Salaries and Pension constitute rightful entitlement of the employees and are payable in accordance with the law.

Legitimate payment of Dearness Allowance arrears for 18 months needs to be considered sympathetically as all the Central Government Employees were on duty during the COVID-19 Pandemic and the financial situation has also improved post-COVID era, hence you are requested to take necessary action and issue necessary instructions for payment of arrears of Dearness Allowance for 18 months.

Staff Side is ready to discuss the mode of arrears payment.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully
