Sub: – Delay in the announcement of the IDA increases w.e.f. 01-07-2021 and 01-10-2021 – employees are deprived of the payment – requesting to announce the IDA increases without further delay – reg.
We wish to bring the following to your kind notice, for favour of necessary action.
The DPE is announcing the increase in the quantum of IDA in every quarter. Normally, the DPE announces the percentage of increase in the IDA without any delay. However, the quantum of IDA that has increased w.e.f. 15 July, 2021 and 01st October, 2021, are not announced so far.
It is only after the announcement of the quantum of IDA increase, the Central Public Sector Undertakings (CPSUs) make payment of the IDA, at the increased rates, to their employees. Since, the IDA increase w.e.f. 01st July, 2021 and 01st October, 2021, are not announced by the DPE, the CPSUs also have not so far made payment of the IDA increase. As a result of this, the employees are suffering, since they are not getting the compensation for the inflation.
In view of the scenario explained above, the employees of BSNL are also suffering, since they have not received payment of the two instalments of the IDA, that has increased from w.e.f. 01st July, 2021 and 01st October, 2021.
Hence, we earnestly urge upon you to kindly take the necessary steps for the early announcement of the IDA increase, that has taken place w.e.f. 01st July, 2021 and 01st October, 2021,
