  1. By hiking 10% Dearness Allowance though for couple of months ;we , as Govt Servants may be able to fight this monster of an inflation a wee bit .Will the monster enlarge or shorten in size is what the months ahead only will reveal. Current non-stop spiraling upwardly behavior only too clearly indicates that from Jan 2011 inflation will unabatedly keep hitting us the common man hard as is the case this day today for months to come .If I may gauge futuristically my guesstimates tell me that there will be a similar %age hike again in the offing so look out for this space .
