Cabinet May approve 10% D.A. today

Update: No announcement of D.A. hike after today's cabinet meeting.  Central employess and pensioners have to wait a little more.

As per information available with us, cabinet may consider and approve 10% D.A for central employees and pensioners with this possible hike, total D.A. payable will reach 90% of basic pay.  Meanwhile, all trade unions are mounting pressure on the Govt. to merge 50% of Dearness allowance with basic pay even there is no recommendation of merger in the sixth pay commission report.  The union threatened to resort to strike if the demand is not fulfilled.  Will the Govt. succumb to this pressure in the electio year? that is the million dollar question.
