DA Announcement for TN Government Staff Awaited…
On September 18, 2014, the Ministry of Finance announced that the Central Government employees were to get Dearness Allowance of 7% from July onwards. Following the announcement, various state governments too have been announcing Dearness Allowance of 7% to its staff. (Rajasthan Government DA Order & Karnataka Government DA Order)
It is a well known fact that the Tamil Nadu state government is in a crisis following the conviction of J. Jayalalithaa in the disproportionate assets case. O. Paneerselvam has been chosen as the new Chief Minister of the state.
More than 18 lakh state government employees, pensioners and their dependents are eagerly waiting for the Dearness Allowance announcement from the new Chief Minister. They are wondering if the new government would grant the arrears and release the Government Order before Diwali this year.
Let us hope that the new Chief Minister makes their dreams come true on the occasion of Diwali and announces a 7% DA this time.
