It looks as if this time all the Central Government Employees Federations are seriously committed to getting 50% Dearness Allowance added to their basic pay!
All the CG employees federations have strongly made this demand to the newly formed Government at the Centre. They have all explained the reasons and submitted the justification, why they have made this demand and have requested that it be implemented.
The demand was first put forth in the middle of last year. It was hoped that the demand would be implemented before the general elections. Everybody expected an announcement in this regard at the end of the last cabinet meeting that was held on February 28, 2014. The disappointment they felt wouldn’t be easy to forget.
In order to renew this demand and present it to the newly formed government, all the federations have presented memorandums. Mr. Shiva Gopal Mishra, Secretary of National Council JCM Staff Side, has sent a detailed letter to the Government explaining this demand.
One will have to wait and watch if the newly formed government, under the leadership of Modi, accepts this demand of more than 50 lakh employees.
