  1. WHY DO GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES GET DA EVERY 6 MONTHS. WHAT IS SO GREAT THAT THEY DO AND PRIVATE EMPLOYEES DON’T DO. NORMS SHOULD BE SAME FOR CITIZENS. INCREMENT SHOULD BE ONCE A YEAR FOR EVERYBODY. THIS SHOULD BE STOPPED.

    1. Your ignorance of how pay of employees should be structured was quite striking to me. The sole purpose of DA is not to compensate govt employees for them gaining experience and getting better at their jobs. WB govt employees get a 3% increment once (and only once) a year for that very reason. DA is to account for the rise and fall of the prices of consumer goods and as such it should be in a rate that results in the total pay increasing at the same rate as the rise of the All India Consumer Price Index. The Central Govt complies with this convention, however, the WB state govt has failed to do so. And here you are alleging that DA paid to state Govt employees is already undeservedly high. It seems to me that you are of the opinion that Govt jobs equate to free money and require no effort, then perhaps you too should take up a govt job and enjoy the be edits that come with it instead of spreading negativity.

      Peace.

  2. Dearness Allowance is not a matter of whims or generosity. It’s a matter of contractual right. It’s a compensation for devaluation of salary. Perhaps we must consult verdict of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India first, and then discuss the matter peacefully. I may be wrong. The most important thing is that the ordinary people should not fight with each other on this issue, and that is what the crooked people want for their own enjoyment and to reap benefits in their favour.

  3. Every private organisation employees’ should also paid Dearness Allowance twice in a month. The Court may issue such verdict should realese immediately. This is a public mandate from all private sector employees’. Every Govt both Central and State always ignored the interest of the private employes’. It must be stopped imediately. We want all becomes in same boat and every one should count same. No differentiate should be allowed in this regard.
