Consequent on revision of rates of Dearness Allowance from existing 90% to 100% vide MoF OM dated 27.03.2014, references are being received in this HQrs office seeking clarification regarding separate orders for revision of rates of certain allowances/advances where a specific clause indicates that the allowance/ advance shall automatically increase by 25% every time DA payable on the revised pay structure goes up by 50%.

The matter has been examined in this HQrs office and it is clarified that automatic revision will take place only in respect of those allowances for which a specific clause of automatic increase has been provided in respective original Govt. orders. Therefore, no separate order is required for revision of allowances/advances by 25% on the original amount w.e.f. 01.01.2014
