Tamil Nadu govt announces 4% hike in Dearness Allowance

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin announced a 4% hike in Dearness Allowance for state government employees and teachers from New Year’s Day.

In a statement, he said the decision followed representations in this regard. The increase will benefit over 16 lakh employees, teachers and pensioners and cost the exchequer Rs 2,359 crore.

Mr Stalin also announced that the government would set up a committee headed by the Secretary (Expenditure), Finance Department, to look into the demand of the protesting teachers for ‘equal pay for equal work’.

“The government has decided to examine the recommendations of the committee and take action,” Mr Stalin said. He also appealed to government employees and teachers to accept the increase in DA as New Year’s gift and cooperate with the government.
