No D.A. for West Bengal employees, FM asks centre to provide

State Finance Minister yesterday stated in assembly that though state employees and pensioners are lagging behind in terms of D.A. by 49% compared to central counterparts, the state is unable to provide it due to financial scarcity. He urged centre to provide this amount and decided to write a letter in this regard.

Incidentally, most of the state Govt.s are paying D.A.at par with Central Govt. out of their own resources without passing the buck to the centre.

Employees associations except those affiliated to the ruling party decided to stage agitation against this.As per sources, central employees may get another installment of D.A. @6% with effect from 1st January 2015 and the gap may be wider.
