  3. till todate, no notification has been issued by the concerned ministry(ies). why is this abnormal deay?

  4. DA has become 58% w.e.f.1.7.2011. Now we have to concentrate on demanding the merger of 50% DA with Basic Pay for all purposes/benefits so that we the Govt. employees would get some solace to meet the increased cost of living on account of rent, transport charges, fuel price increase etc.,Let us pray that we get succeed in getting 50 % merger with pay.
