The order will apply to government employees who were transitioned to the revised Scale of Pay on April 4, 2016, as well as those who choose to stay on the previous scale of pay prior to April 1, 2016. From January 1, 2022, through March 31, 2022, the arrear DA/DR will be paid in a single payment through the employees'/pensioners' bank accounts.
