AIZAWL: The Centre has no plans to release the 18-month dearness allowance (DA) arrears stopped during the Covid-19 pandemic, Union MoS for finance Pankaj Chaudury informed Mizoram’s lone Lok Sabha member C Lalrosanga in Parliament on Monday.
“The decision to freeze three instalments of DA/dearness relief to central government employees/pensioners due from January 1, 2020, July 1, 2020 and January 1, 2021 was taken in the context of Covid-19, which caused economic disruption, so as to ease pressure on government finances. “Arrears of DA/DR which mostly pertain to the difficult FY2020-21 are not considered feasible,” Chaudhary said.
