LIC – DA and DR Dear to All
DA and DR Dear to All
The Union Cabinet has approved 3% increase in DA / DR to central government employees numbering about 42 lakhs and pensioners including family pensioners numbering about 68 lakhs from January 1, 2019.
The government pensioners have been getting full DA / DR and updation of pension as per certain norms right since 01-01-1996 based on the recommendations of successive Central Pay Commissions. And, hence, 3 % increase in DA / DR for pensioners and family pensioners is on their basic pension and family pension. Mr.X drawing basic pension of Rs. 10000/- would get Rs.300/- more (10000x 3/100) from January, 2019. The DA / DR has gone up from 9% to 12%. The gross pension of Shri. Ramamurtny from January, 2019 is Rs.11200/-. Avery simple arithmetic to work out DA / DR. Rs. 10000 X 12 /100 =Rs.1200. Therefore, the gross pension of Shri. R.Murthy : Rs.11200/- (10000+1200) from January to June 2019.
Since the introduction of pension schemes in LIC and banks there have been six settlements / wage revisions. Pensioners have been relentlessly fighting in courts of law for last twenty plus years for 100% neutralisation in DR and parity in pension. Unless and until, the cases are won, the pensioners retired in different scales of pay will get the benefit of increase in DR differently as per the prescribed rates per slab increase based on AICPI.
