Whether 7th Pay Commission would grant Interim Relief ? – Details of Interim Relief granted and DA Merger allowed by earlier Pay Commissions

As everyone knows the Central Government has constituted the 7th Pay Commission and named its Chairmen recently. The decision of the government to constitute the 7th CPC has triggered many expectations among the central government employees. Among them was the merger of 50% DA with basic pay as done in the 5th CPC. But the 6th CPC did not recommended anything like that. It is understood that the employees are eagerly awaiting for an economic relief from the soaring prices of essential commodities. There are instances of announcing interim relief (I.R) to the employees apart from DA by a newly constitute pay commission prior to their implementations in the past.
