25% increase in Allowances whenever DA goes up by 50%

25% increase in Allowances whenever DA goes up by 50% – Whether Separate Orders Needed ?

As per the recommendations of Sixth Pay Commission Report, Government included a clause while granting / revising certain allowances such as Children Education Allowance, Travelling Allowance, Conveyance Allowance, Cash handling allowance, Risk Allowance, Bad Climate Allowance, Hill Area Allowance, Remote Locality Allowance, Tribal Area Allowances etc to the etc that whenever Dearness Allowance applicable to Central Government employees goes up by 50%, these allowances would be automatically increased by 25%.

We are getting repeated queries from readers whether any Separate orders will be issued by Government for increasing Allowance by 25% which are linked with increase in DA, since Dearness Allowance has gone up by 50% for the second time now. We are of the opinion that there is no need for Separate orders for increasing these Allowances by 25% as Office Memorandums / Orders relating to these Allowances have the clause “whenever Dearness Allowance applicable to Central Government employees  goes up by 50%, these allowances would be automatically increased by 25%
