Explainer: Battalion of UP government employees, know how much the salary will increase now compared to earlier – Uttar Pradesh government employees have a big advantage, know how much the salary will increase now compared to earlier



Luck now: Regarding the rise in inflation, the Yogi government has given a big gift to the employees and pensioners of Uttar Pradesh. Government employees have been waiting for this gift for a long time. There are over 16 lakh government employees, teachers at UP, while there are 11.52 lakh retirees who will enjoy direct benefits. There is great relief for people in government jobs in the UP government. State employees have long been calling for an increase in DA. Now the question will be in your mind, how much will the salary increase and how much will the benefit be.

Indeed, before the Yogi government, the central government had also decided in March to grant DA and DR (Dearness Allowance) to its employees and retirees at the rate of 34% instead of 31 from January 1, 2022. Now, after the decision of the UP government, more than 16 lakh state employees received great relief.

How many months of arrears and from when profit?
After this Yogi government announcement, the Dearness Allowance (DA) and Dearness Relief (DR) for UP government employees and retirees has been increased effective January 1, 2022, so everyone will also receive arrears. According to the order, the arrears for a total of six months from January to June will also arrive in August with the July salary and pension increase. Previously, UP government employees received dearness allowance at the rate of 31%.

What is DA and DR
This increase in Dearness Allowance (DA) and Dearness Relief (DR) for UP government employees and retirees will be considered effective from January 1, 2022. That is, UP government jobs will benefit from the arrears.

July DA amount increase in GPF
State employees will be paid DA cash at the rate of 34 percent in August along with July pay. From January 1 to June 30, the amount of the increased DA will be deposited in the Employees’ Provident Account (GPF). Arrears will be credited to the GPF account of employees until July 31, 2023 and cannot be withdrawn before this date except in the event of permanent withdrawal.

DA rate equal to that of the central administration
Now, after the last decision, the dearness allowance for state employees has increased to 34%. Earlier, in March, the central government had also increased the high cost allowance by 3% from January 1, 2022 and from 31 to 34%.

The dearness allowance has increased by 3%
After the central government’s decision to increase the dearness allowance, the finance department of UP became active. It was speculated that the UP government could announce the AD for employees at any time. Now, after increasing the three percent dearness allowance of state government employees and retirees, the additional burden of several crores will increase every year for the state government.

220 crore will increase burden
Reportedly, on paying DA and DR to government employees at an increased rate of three percent, an additional burden of Rs 220 crore will come on the Yogi government every month.
