The National Mazdoor Conference (NMC) on Saturday demanded release of 10 per cent DA due from January last for state government employees and pensioners in cash.
“We demand release of 10 per cent DA due from January last in favour of state government employees and pensioners in cash. DA is the part of salary and routine financial matter and as such there should be no hitch in releasing it,” NMC President Subash Shastri said while addressing the workers here on Saturday.
He said that the salaried class and pensioners were facing a lot of economic hardships due to high inflation and price hike and release of due DA instalment will be a genuine measure to provide some financial relief to them.
Shastri said that the delay in release of DA would not only put financial burden on the state government exchequer to liquidate the arrears but also increase the difficulties of employees and pensioners.
The prices of all essential commodities are going up considerably and there was no justification on the part of the government for withholding this instalment for its employees and pensioners as the funds had already been earmarked in the current year state budget, he added.
